Well, you came to the right place! This quest has an emphasis on world building, character-driven narrative and recently combat.Last time you helped end a 25-year long war between mermaids and shark folk. And in the process accidently aided genocide. whoops. You got to the bottom of the war's origins and killed the one responsible. In your battle with them, however, you were severely wounded and woke up the neck day paralyzed from the waist down. You left the mermaid kingdom as heroes and decided to spend a relaxing afternoon on the beach before heading out. In your travels you came across an old Witch named Yaga who offered to help heal your legs if you and one other from your group go into the Accursed Lands and retrieve "The Sun Orb" from Baeloric in a place called "The Rising Flame." So far you and your Basilisk notgirlfriend Akitani have ventured into the dark lands and have been confronted by two lamias.
>>385256“W-W-We were safe from whatever was burrowing underground. You see, we are travelers and we were just passing through to and didn’t want to upset anything. “Travelersssssss? Here? We don’t get travelerssssss.” they begin to circle you. “They are suspicioussssss” The other one utters. “No, honestly we were just moving through here we by no means wish anything than to simply pass.” They disregard you. “And what are you doing with thisssss one.” The lamia question Akitani. “What she says is the truth, and I am her companion in travel.” Akitani grows slightly tense, but after a second the lamias seem to relax. “They do not seem to be threatsss to usssss.” “We shall allow you to passsss, but we will take note of your presenceeeee.” The two lamia’s slither away. That was weird. At one second they were worried about them being upset, but the next they seemed serenely calm and just left. Akitani grabs her head with a free arm. “My head all of a sudden hurts.” “We can slow down Aki if we need to, we aren’t in a particular rush I suppose. Those the less time we spend here the better.” A thought pops into your head. “Shoot! We could have asked them to directions.” Coulda woulda shoulda. “What are you two doing in a dangerous place like this?” You hear a soft voice from behind you. You turn to face what looked like a centaur but jet black hair. Dark clothing and pale skin. How did she get so close to you without noticing? Aki’s heat sensing should have picked up on her no problem. Must be because of her headache. The mare just stares at you two in bewilderment. “We are travelers huh? Well, I suggest you get out of here as fast as you can. No one here likes visitors.” “Thanks but we wanted to uhh, see the sights.” You stumbly utter. She points further into the dark landscape. “That is pretty much the only sight you get, trust me I have been here for 5 years now. It never changes.” It seems a resident approached you, but this time seemingly less hostile than the lamia. You wonder if you can turn this to your benefit somehow.>”Excuse me, ma'am, where might we find the “The Rising Flame?”>”Thanks for the warning, but we must press on goodbye.”>”You look quite attractive”>Write in
>>389342>”Excuse me, ma'am, where might we find the “The Rising Flame?”
>>389547“Oh that, it’s a volcano a little northwest of here. There is a city built around it.” She explained. “They built a city around a volcano?” “It’s a pretty sturdy city.” Must be. >”Thank you for the directions” Head off to the volcano>She seems nice, ”Want to escort us?”>Write in
>>389586>She seems nice, ”Want to escort us?”
>>389639She seems like the first real nice thing you met here why not keep her around for a bit. Not to mention she might know how to deter monsters since she lives here. You ask her,“Hey, since we are pretty new here, would you mind escorting us to the volcano?” “So I am nice to you for a minute and you want me to travel with you?” She smiles slyly. “My, if you’re that trusting you won’t last long here.” She ponders for a second. “I’m not doing much today, so why not? This could prove fun for once.” You wonder what exactly she might be referring to in terms of lack of excitement in a place crazy enough to build a city around an active volcano. “ You help would be greatly appreciated. Since we are traveling together now we should introduce ourselves.” You introduce yourself. “This is Akitani, a friend of mine.” “Likewise, my name is Rozalin. The volcano is a half a day or so away so we should be off. Akitani continues to carry you. After a while, though. “My head still hurts.’ she wines. “We can stop for a minute if you want us too.” “No, we should continue going. I just wish I could rub it a bit, It made the pain away earlier.” "Well, I can just rest on one side so you can use your arm.” “But, then you would be uncomfortable!” She protests. She gives you some minor nudges with her elbows. You think you understand what she wants. You pat and pet her head a bit. “Hehehe” Akitani giggled quietly. Rozalin chuckles to herself a bit at this display. “Friends huh?” Roll a d20
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>389680
>>389688You three continue your journey unabated thankfully. There were some minor glances you got from the wildlife, but thanks to your guide you seem to be progressing smoothly. While traveling Rozalin warns you “The city around the volcano is a pretty rough place, I would avoid lingering in there if you can.” “Thanks, but Rozalin…” Something has been bugging you. “Why are you being so nice and helping us. If you are a resident of this terrible place and as you describe it seems that no one here is friendly. So why are you?” Rozalin stops for a moment. “I’m sorry, I wasn’t trying to say anything about you or this place in particular. My curiosity got the better of me.” “No, it's okay.” She says. “I’m just originally not from here, so I try to be nice is all.” Lucky you.You get to the outskirts of the city. It really was built around a volcano. “Who even lives here?” “Fire elementals mainly, and imps.” Oh. “They town seemed fairly active and you clearly stood out from everyone there. You walk forward into the city. This time Rozalin's presence didn’t seem to help much with people. An imp grabs you. Look at “This cute boy.” She licks her lips “I can provide you with a better night that those two could ever hope to! Why don’t you come with me for a while.” Here we go again. >Conceal the fact that you are a woman>Reveal yourself to be a womanAlso>”Nope” You don’t want to deal with this right now>”Sure” Maybe you can learn something while out with her
>>389751>Reveal yourself to be a woman>”Nope” You don’t want to deal with this right now
>>389755“I’m sorry ma’am but I am actually a woman, these are my friend and acquaintance, and I need to go right now?” “A girl dressing and looking like a guy, you have some weird habits there miss. Hahahaha.” The imp cackles. *grrrrr* you grit your teeth. “Pay them no mind, they often behave as such,” Rozalin explains. “You’re just lucky it was still daytime.” “What do you mean?” “You’ll find out tonight.” Speaking of which that journey took more time than you thought, seems your slow pace with Aki and Rozalin cost you a bit of time. But you think you can do one more thing before the evening comes for sure.>Visit Tavern>Visit Inn>Visit shops>Try to go into the volcano, it’s where this Baeloric guy is supposed to be anyways>Write in
>>389791>Try to go into the volcano, it’s where this Baeloric guy is supposed to be anywaysWe should also ask Rozalin if she knows of Baeloric.
>>389804Actually let us go to the Inn and secure ourselves a room for the night. Still ask Rozalin if she knows of Baeloric
>>389808“Let’s head to the Inn.” “A sensible decision” Rozalin agrees. Speaking of which she escorted you to the city so she could leave you guys if she wanted to, but she hasn’t said anything yet and is still staying with you guys. You can’t complain you suppose. Having a resident willing to talk to you politely is a nice thing. You three end up making your way to the Inn. people give you weird stares the whole way. And some of the demons are making baby and kid jokes at you since Akitani is carrying you still. You couldn’t care less, but Aki was very embarrassed, and once we got into the Inn she was quite relieved. Rozalin approached the front desk. The desk attendant seemed to be a voluptuous woman with bat wings, horns, and a long impish tail. “We would like a room for 3 if possible.” “That should be fine honey, will you be needing company or are you two gonna take care of him?” What did she just ask? “We’ll be okay” “Suit yourself.” You walk to the dining area for some food and conversation before bed. “I am not so sure you want to do that,” Rozalin warns. “Why?” “Well…” “OH MY GOD HE’S SO CUTE” “CAN I GET HIM FIRST?” “IN YOUR DREAMS” All of a sudden your seating area was rushed by 10 women who all looked to be a similar species to the innkeeper. They are actually all over you. You ordered something to eat, but it is kind of hard to eat with all of them trying to rub themselves against you. “Soooooo, what room are you staying in?” “Uhhh, I don’t know?” You honestly didn’t. “Awwww, is it cause you think I'm ugly?” She gets sad and holds herself. “Of course not! It’s that I really don’t know and don’t understand why this is important-” She hugs you and pulls your face into her chest. “BE-CAU-SE” she playfully pronounces. Akitani slams her fist on the table. “Leave her alone!” “HER?!” they all shout. “You confirm their shock. “Ohh that just makes you even cuter!” half of them yell. “I said leave her alone!” Aki stands up tall. One of the girls whisper to you. “You know a controlling girlfriend isn’t healthy, you should be able to kick back every now and then.” “THAT IS ENOUGH” Aki shouts and focuses on the crowd. “Ahh, oh well, maybe later” is among the phrases you here they utter next. All of them seem to lose all interest in you and walk around bothering other patrons.
>>389855“Ahhhh, my head.” Aki grabs her head again. “You have had a long day Aki, maybe you should head to bed, but what about you?” She worries. “Don’t worry I’ll be okay and I’ll be up in a bit.” “But, what about moving?” You forgot about that. “I will do it.” Rozalin answers. “I noticed during our travels that your legs seemed to have no life in them and you were unable to use them. Also, when sitting down you needed Akitani to assist you. I do not mind doing this. In fact, I am designed for this more than she is.” She as a centaur so she was right, plus you weren’t planning on going anywhere besides the Inn. “Alright,” Aki resigns and then makes her way upstairs to the room. You and Rozalin were all alone now. You had finished eating, but she had begun drinking. “So Rozalin, do you know a man named Baeloric?” She spits out her mouthful of ale. “I’m sorry did you say Baeloric?” “Yeah? Is there a problem?” “Why are you asking about The Destroyer?” “The Destroyer?!” “yeah legends say he used to live in the volcano until a few hundred years ago when he began desecrating lands all across the region. “He burned down many towns, razed whole cities and even began to do the same to the borderlands.” “He suddenly vanished 100 years ago, and no one knows why or where he has gone. I also don’t think many care why as he killed tens of thousands.” “How did you know that name, and why are you asking” Rozalin glares. “Well, I plan to meet him.” She cracks up. “Hahahaha, why would you ever want to do that?” >Tell her about Yaga>”Well actually talking to”The Destroyer” would be totally awesome right?”>Distracter her by telling her she's prettyLast post for the night, be back 6pm PST tomorrow
>>389860>Tell her about Yaga
>>389880“Rozalin, the truth is I was asked by a witch named Yaga to get something called the “Sun Orb” from Baeloric. She says they know each other” “Huh, I don’t know anything, about a Yaga or this Sun Orb, but if she knows The Destroyer I would say you have bigger issues.” She laughs a little. “I knew this looked like it could be fun,” she smiles. “So about sleeping arrangements, should we bar the door?” “And the windows” she adds. “Are the succubuses here really that persistent?" "Not really, but the worst these lands have to offer come out at night. I learned quickly that securing yourself at night is important.” She doesn’t seem to be joking. Alright well, we have a pretty busy schedule talking to a The Destroyer, hopefully, tomorrow. “We should get some rest.” Rozalin stands up and assists you getting onto her back. She is surprisingly soft for a centaur, and riding her is far more comfortable than having Aki carry you. “Thank you, Rozalin, for the help.” “No problem” She whispers to herself. “After all, you’re too cute when you look like this and you’re helpless” “Did you say something?” “No, just imagining what it would be like to talk with a land destroying creature. You head up to your room. There are only two beds and Aki is asleep already in hers. She is quite sprawled out too. Seems she must have been really tired. “Hehe, hopefully, she can continue sleeping like that tonight.” “What do you mean?” “Oh, you’ll see.” She moves to her bed. But wait that leaves you with the floor, or sleeping with one of them.>Sleep with Aki >Sleep with Rozalin>Sleep on the floor
>>392062>>Sleep with Aki
>>392080You think over your options. Sleeping on the floor would be a bit too uncomfortable for your tastes. “Rozalin, could you please put me over by Akitani?” “My how bold of you. And with another woman in the room!” ‘That’s not what I am going to do.” You shut her teasing down. “It is quite alright, I understand the feeling, and your technique would become all the better if you practice a little exhibitionism.” “Goodnight!” You quickly "shoo" her off. You manage to pull yourself up and climb into bed with Aki. At first just laid there but after looking closer at Aki your heart begins to beat faster. She looks so cute sleeping like that. And your bodies are pressing against each other. You slowly lay your arm around her, reach up with our neck and give her a peck on the cheek, Nuzzel into her torso. You think to yourself how lucky you are to have her with you. Even being in this dangerous place being with her lets you forget all that, you even sometimes forget you're paralyzed. Aki is always concerned about you, plus she wants to... You blush at the thought. Oh well, we can at least share this moment. You whisper to her sleeping face before drifting off. “I really am glad I met you.” You were having a pleasant dream of you and your friends all returning back home once it is all said and done. Aki would come along, and you even had your legs back. You finally reunited with your sister Lily and you were crying tears of joy. Though this pleasant scene was shattered when you started to hear loud bangings around you. “Wha-” you wake from your sleep. Aki was still out cold and it seems Rozalin was wearing earmuffs of some kind. How could they be asleep when a small magnitude earthquake is taking place outside your bedroom. In between the loud banging you hear chattering of some kind but you can’t make it out. >Try to listen (Roll a stealth check d20+2)>We’ll deal with it later, As long as we are safe that is all that matters>Write in
Rolled 14 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>392151>Try to listen
>>392166You move away from Aki slowly. And crawl over to the window as quietly as you could. Once you get closer you hear “-he just said dat da gurl is here somewhere." "Why did da boss send us to find her when he knows dat everyone locks up their gitz dis time o night." I told ya before, dis gurl is important.” “Important how?" "Da boss don’t tell us dat.” “Aaahhh rubbish cmon best start looking other places.” The hear some footsteps on top of the inn roof and the two voices disappear. At least they didn’t try to break into your place, but you wonder what that was all about? You crawl back over to the bed and pull yourself up. You don’t think you can get as comfy as you were before but you manage to go back to sleep once you finally are able to doze off.You awaken in the morning, before Aki somehow. “Wow, she sure can sleep. Hmm.>Surprise her>Get out before she wakes up>Write in
>>392206Lay in bed until either Aki wakes up or Rozalin wakes up.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>392220Rolling a thing
>>392220You decide to lay in bed a bit. Let this last a little while longer. To your surprise, Rozalin wakes up first. “That was an unremarkable evening.” She says as she stretches.” “You mean in terms of noise.” “No, I mean you actually didn’t do anything.” “.... …. ….” you raise your voice, “Now listen her-!” “*yaaaaaawwwnnn* Akitani awakens to you next to her. “What is all that noi-” She realizes where you are. “Eeeehhhh," she jumps out of bed. She just woke up but it seems her embarrassment-o-meter is immediately in overdrive. “G-G-G-G-Good morn...ing” She barely manages to say to Rozalin. “Does she always do this?” she looks at you “Usually” “Ahhh, well I’m sorry for you then.” Rozalin seems to dismiss the whole situation. “Either way, we should eat some breakfast and prepare for our search for Mr. Baeloric. We may be walking around a lot today." As such I feel it would be more comfortable for you to ride on me today. She has a point. Rozalin walks over to your bed and waits for you to hop on. You do so. “B-B-B…” Aki tries to say but Rozalin counters, “Now now, you got her all night and now you want more? My how shameless.” “BBBBBBB-BBBB-BBB-BBB-NNNN--NNNNN-NNN-N-” Aki seems to be overloading. Rozalin turns to you. She doesn’t seem to be in a proper state to carry you, hehe.”After about 30 minutes you manage to calm Aki down. “It’s okay Aki, this way you can fight without having to worry about me.” “I’m worried about you for other reasons.” She looks at Rozalin. Rozalin turns her head and acts aloof. You head out the into the town. Rozalin says to you. “We may be traveling quite a bit today, so I suggest you hold on for maximum comfort.” “Hold onto what?” She grabs your hands and wraps your arms around her torso, just under her breasts. “Uhhh?” You try to question her but she just smiles and you are suddenly overcome with a wave of supreme comfort. Holy cow did leaning against her soft body feel cozy and warm. If you didn’t just wake up you could swear you would have fallen asleep right there.From your new position you think. What’s the best place to start your search for The Destroyer?>Tavern>Market>Volcano>Write in
>>392307Straight to the source. The volcano.
>>392320Best head straight to the Volcano that is where he is supposed to be anyways. “You want to head there really? Well okay, but most people don’t head that way.” “Why?” “Because they never come back.” Well, that is scary. Although.... “Doesn’t that reinforce the idea that Baeloric is there.” “Yes, or something equally terrifying.” You walk through town was uneventful. You reach the entrance doors to the volcano interior. “The people here used to mine the volcano for resources, which is why it has a door.” Neat. You three head inside to find out that… it is unholy hot in here. “Holy shit, who would live here?” "Fire, elementals or one big monster who enjoys the warm." Rozalin guesses. The volcano was lit up thanks to the lava, but nothing of note seems to be in here. Besides you know, deadly lava.Roll a search check. 1d20+1
Rolled 13 + 1 (1d20 + 1)>>392402
>>392443You were looking around the area when you notice some tracks. It looked like hooves and they were heading to a solid wall. “Wonder if there is something up with this wall.” You touch it and burn your hand. “Correction. Searing hot wall.” The hoof prints under you just disappear halfway through a step under a rock wall. You wonder. You prepare a death spell in your hand and punch the wall. The wall ages and begins to crumble away. But the crumbling wall doesn’t seem to have any weight to it. You feel and hear the volcano rumble as rocks fall from the ceiling. These rocks also don’t seem to have weight behind them. They land on the ground and you hear an impact, but they leave no impact marks in the ground. >Write in
>>392461Poke one of the rocks with your sword. See if they truly have no weight. Also ask Aki and Rozalin if they have seen or heard of this phenomenon before.
>>392470“Have you guys ever heard of this phenomenon?" “In this situation…” Rozalin thinks. “I can’t say I have.” “Me neither" Akitani adds. That makes three of us. You pull out your sword and poke one of the rocks. It goes through the rock! “What! So this is an illusion!” You have Rozalin gallop over to other fallen rocks and poke at them to confirm you suspicion. Your sword passes through all of them. “So they have a hidden wall and illusionary volcanic rock falls. They must be trying to keep people out whoever they are.” You return to the wall and give it a tap with your sword pommel. You work your way down the wall until you feel a hollow point. “Here!” You charge another death spell and punch the rock, and knock a rock down into a dark hallway built inside the volcano. “Something bothers me,” Akitani says. “What’s up?” “If everyone who comes in here dies, why are there so many false illusions meant to turn people away. Not kill them.” “It does conflict with what I have heard…” They both think for a bit. Either way, a path is open before you, and unlike the other parts of the volcano, this one seems colder. Despite the fact that it seems to be going down further into the ground.You lead with Rozalin and as you make your way down the hallway you hear grumblings and have brief flashes of intense heat. Boy you sure hope Baeloric is actually down here, or all this puzzle solving and burns will be for nothing. After descending for almost 10 minutes you come to another door. This one thankfully just opens but as you do so you hear a series of clicks. What the door then opens to is a huge internal cavern of the volcano. It was breathtaking. Molten rocks formed elaborate bridges. Streams of lava flowed all around you. Towers of rock are reaching from the floor to the ceiling. The most important thing you spot in this cavern, however, was a massive black dragon, laying down on a platform far below. You were distracted by this sight however and failed to notice the bombs and molten debris that was flying toward you. >Write inlast post of the day, be back 6pm pst tomorrow
>>392559Dodge the death coming toward us. Or just head back through the door and close it. That is also a way of dodging.
Something has come up. Session delayed until I am able to return, which will likely be around 7:30pm PST. Sorry for the inconvenience.

>>395049>>395070Dodge, dodge, dodge! You and Rozalin weave out of the way as does Akitani. The flying debris smashes behind you into the wall. But once again you hear the impact but can’t see any actual impact. More come flying at you. But you dodge once again. And sometimes even though you couldn’t dodge in time the debris flew through you. “Huh, this must be the same type of traps.” “Once again it seems whoever set these doesn’t want to hurt anyone but make them… leave?” Aki re-inforces. It was truly mind boggling. You press forward into the blazing cavern and at one point you come to a long rock bridge that connects to the next platform. However as you step onto the bridge it begins to crumble before your eyes beginning the in middle and spreading outward to the side. The rock under you feels shaky and weak.>Write in

>>395162Rozalin and you make it over easily and avoid the pitfall. Aki, however, flies leaps in bounds over you two. She being a basilisk can’t theoretically jump, but it seems her intuition told her a trick. She coiled herself into a ball and squeezed inward and to the ground. After a few seconds, she releases all the presser and pushes off the ground. She springs forward in an impressive sight. She didn’t seem to know what she had done however and was flying through the air flailing her arms in panic. She managed to land fairly successfully, though. “I had no idea you could do that.” You were in amazement. “Neither did I,” Aki responds as bewildered as you. “Puts me to shame. And here I was trying to impress you.” Rozalin turns and pouts a little to herself. The next serious of paths that slid down closer to the dragon. As you got closer to the beast you got a better sense of just how huge it was. It was at least the size of two two-story houses from back home. You really did not want to get close to it, but this was your only path. Thankfully though the large beast was asleep. You get closer to where you see what looks to be catapults on an oncoming platform. They fire at you. They were flinging what looked to be not on fire but cases of green liquid.>Dodge +2, +3
Rolled 11, 4 = 15 (2d20)>>395205
>>395218You and Rozalin manage to dodge out of the way but Akitani was less lucky. She its hit by the container that burst on impact and covers her in green goo. “Aki are you oka-” You try to have Rozalin trot over to check on her, but the closer you get you start noticing something. Aki smells like pure sulfur! And it only gets worse the closer you get. You plug your nose. “Arr yuu okaaay?” you ask. “I feel completely fine. Is something wrong, besides my slimy-” she takes a whiff. “DEAR LORD WHY?!” She yells after realizing her stench. “NOOOOOOOO” She slithers as far away as possible from you. Her embarrassment-o-meter is once again reaching dangerous levels. “Aki it’s…. Okay.” “Truly?” Rozalin asks while also plugging her nose. “Yeah…” you’re not too sure. At least she isn’t hurt and only smells horrendous. Aki slithers back over to you keeping her head down the whole way, and you continue your descent. You reach where the catapults had been and you hear some loud stomping coming from behind a nearby rock. You brandish your sword in safety when you notice that what walks out is a mild sized female minotaur. She brandishes her axe, but does not say a word. >Write in

>>395260Well, maybe we can talk to her. “Excuse me, we don’t want to fight, we just want to find someone” “He isn’t here.” She says shortly. “Well, can we at least pass you then.” “No.” “Because?” “Because!” Convincing. >Write in

Where is he?" You see her eyes clearly look down at the dragon. “Nooowhere” She elongates. Alright, this is getting ridiculous. You begin to just walk past her. “Hey wait! I said you can’t go there.” “Then stop me. “ I-I will!” She lifts her hand up for a swing. She doesn’t seem like a good fighter since she misses her strike completely. She keeps trying to hit you but she doesn’t seem to manage to connect any of her attacks. You weren’t even trying to dodge. “JUST LEAVE ALREADY!” she shouts while missing.You hear a booming voice. “Wilsa, what is all this racket” She turns white. “Nothing father, just some intruders.” “Intruders, then why don’t you deal with them?” You try to break through in this conversation. “We are not intruders we are-” “Assassins! Sent murder you.” Wilsa turns to your group after shouting. “He doesn’t want to talk” “Ohh, now this is interesting.” You hear the booming voice blast through the cavern as it begins to violently shake. “No father wait!” her pleas were too late as the giant dragon you saw below landed on your platform. Lava was dripping off his person and he seemed intrigued. He takes a moment to look over your group “Is this all they would send?” He seems disappointed. “Aki and Rozalin seem to be taken back at the hulking beast. You stayed cool, though, this plane has shown you crazy and foreboding enough creatures already. “Don’t be absurd father, These people come armed with deadly poisons to kill you.” Wilsa pleads. “Poisons for a dragon such as I? Where was this even concocted? The dragon asks you. For someone who thinks he is trying to be killed, he seems awfully calm about all this. Then again he is a massive dragon at least 20x your size. >We are not assassins and will you please tell her to stop. D20+5>”A witch named Yaga made the poisons.” > “Wow, you're a big guy.”

>>395544>>395552It’s now sinking in just how huge he was. “Wow, you’re a big guy.” you let slip out. “Haha, for one such as you that is an understatement.” He chuckles. “But enough jokes are you here to kill, well let's get this over with.” He stands up tall and proud prepared for combat. “Wait! We are not assassins with poison, but if we did have poison a witch name Yaga would be the only one capable of producing such a thing. “Indeed,” he relaxes his stance. “So what are you then messengers of the old witch? Has she come to torment me once again with her experiments and tasks?” Wilsa jumps into the conversation, “Father can you not see that these people are here to ki-” The large dragon cuts her off by placing a finger on her and pin her to the ground. “Be silent Wilsa, I will determine for myself if these people mean harm.” “But father!” He presses on her slightly harder, “uugghhh.” “Now you lot answer my question,” he demands.>Write in
>>398652Tell him we were sent to retrieve the "Sun Orb" because Yaga said that if we do that and help her further she will fix out legs.
>>398674“We were sent her to retrieve something called a “Sun Orb”. We have no idea what it is but we were told it would be in the hands of a Baeloric.” You answer. “Ha, and she didn’t tell you anything else?” “Not at all.” “Sounds like her,” The dragon relaxes and lays down with his hand still on Wilsa. “Father you have to get rid of these- ugghhh” He presses harder on her. “I apologize for my daughter. She means well in looking out for me, but I am afraid she tends to take things a little far.” You think for a second. She didn’t actually hurt you or realistically try, she was just encouraging you to leave. Wilsa was flailing under her father's hand, desperately trying to crawl away. “Now, I am afraid to tell you that I no longer have the orb, and thankfully so” “You no longer have it?” “No I lost it about 100 years ago. To another name Azrazzor. She was a rather loud and hateful creature if I remember right.” “How did you lose it?” “The Sun Orb is a double edged sword. Using it grants incredible destructive power, but it eats away at you. You slowly lose your stamina, spirit, and even life force until only strength remains. Not to mention it has mind-altering effects.” He is being quite helpful in answer your questions. Maybe a little too helpful…. “Why are you telling us this at all?” you question. "Because frankly, you are my only company besides my daughter I have had for over 100 years. Not to mention I detest that infernal orb.” He huffs. “My overuse of it left me drained, and forced me to rest in the heat of the volcano for all this time.”>Take him at his word>”I have a feeling you do indeed have that orb and aren’t telling me.” Also you may ask questions if you wish.
>>398815Let us say we do believe him, not that we do. Ask him where Azrazzor and who they are. If he knows anything about the name "The Destroyer.", Ask him about all these deterrents, what he knows about fixing peoples legs, vampires, and if he has interacted with Humans before. Also ask him if he any idea why Yaga would want the "Sun Orb." Also any additional info about Yaga,
>>398869You decide to be skeptical, but at least listen to what he has to say. You now begin a series of questions. “Do you know where Azrazzor is and who exactly is she” “A moody fire elemental if I remember correctly. We didn’t get the chance to talk since she was only concerned with defeating me from the moment we met. As to where she is, I have not a clue. The last time we meet was 100 years ago near the Tower of Spite. “Rozalin's ears perk up at this. The Tower? But that place is forbidden.” Interesting. You then ask, “What do you know about “The Destroyer”?” “That old nickname? Ha, people are so quick to name based on simple tasks. Currently thought my destroying days seem to be over.” She seems to reminisce. “Why all the traps?” “Because people should learn to leave! He just wants to be left alone.” “Her methods may be interesting, but she means well. I was quite tired all those years ago, but I don’t think it will be much longer until I am back on my wings, so to say. “Can you perhaps fix people's legs.” “Are you crippled young one?” “Yes, Yaga said she could heal my legs if I got the orb for her.” “Well, she is an ancient witch, no doubt she could help you. But if she got ahold of that orb she could do far more damage than good. I would just destroy the blasted thing.” he huffs. “Speaking of Yaga, what do you know about her.” “She came to me long ago during my time as The Destroyer. She was enthusiastic about killing a certain man and asked my assistance. She granted me more power if I destroyed certain villages and locations. At the time power was all I cared about. Until Azrazzor stole the orb from me. “Now then if you are not here to fight, I will return to rest.” He turns back to a pool of lava.” >”Wait, help us!” (describe how to approach him with this and I will make you roll a charisma check equal to quality of description for Baeloric)>”Alright then, off to the Tower of Spite!”>Write in
>>399016Wait, Help us. We now know that giving the Orb to Yaga is a bad idea and having the orb exist in general is a bad idea and we want to destroy it. But we know of no other way to fix our legs other than giving Yaga the orb. And even if we did find another one and destroy the Orb, Yaga currently has our friends "hostage". So we ask you to help us find a way to fix our legs, destroy the orb, and stop Yaga. Show the world that still exist and maybe do some good by your name instead of being just called "The Destroyer".
>>399120Or in a more general way. We should play to his want to destroy the orb. But mention our being backed into a corner with having our legs crippled and our friends being "hostages". Also more than a few things about how awesome he is and how he should show the world how he is still here.

>>399251You plead to the dragon your cause in hopes that he may be able to assist you against Azrazzor. He turns back to you, Intrigued. “Hmm, interesting points, however, I remain unconvinced. “How, do you even propose to defeating Yaga with your friends hostage? You could use the orb to likely destroy her, but the orb is indiscriminate.” “Then we will think of something!” You said resolutely. “Something?!” Wilsa, Aki, and Rozalin say all at once. You brave through their doubts and just stare Baeloric straight in the eyes. You don’t have to have a plan, all he is looking for, you figure, is conviction. Baeloric leans his body and extends his neck to where his face is right next to yours. You can feel the heat emanating from his body, steam rises from the corners of his mouth. “So your plan is faith then?” He asks. “Not faith Baeloric, but the knowledge that we will defeat her.” you stare straight into his eyes. A staring contest between you and a dragon as probably the last thing you expected to do, but here you are. After a minute that seemed like 30 Baeloric lets out a laugh. “Hahahahaha, You humans always did surprise me, a stubborn lot you are. Stubborn, but strong willed. Very well human I shal assist you. “But father!” Wilsa protests. “Wilsa you have been watching me all this time. It is okay to take a break you know?” He lifts his claw from Wilsa. He turns once again to you. “Young one, I must still rest, but Wilsa will accompany you to the tower.” “WHAT?! But what about you!” Wilsa shouted. She must be incredibly protective. “Wilsa, no person has been able to kill me for hundreds of years. It will be alright if I rest here a little while longer. You deserve to get out of this place anyway.” back to you. “Wilsa will act as my messenger if there ever is a moment you require my assistance she will be able to call me to your location.” With that, he turns to once again fly down into the lava. “Also do try to be nice to her. She may seem overbearing but she is one of the kindest people I have ever met.” “FATHER PLEASE!” “hahahaha” That was the last you hear of Baeloric.
>>399387You now are in quite an awkward situation as you three and Wilsa just stare at each other. At times like this Yuki works wonders, but it seems you must make due without her. “Soooooooooooooo... Nice to meet you! This is Akitani and Rozalin, we look forward to working with you.” “I’ll have you know I will be watching you this entire time.” that was quite a response to a simple introduction. “If that makes you happy, we just ask that you help to the best of your ability, and do feel free to speak your mind.” “Let’s just get this over with," she walks over to your group. “There is an exit up the cavern path that I use.” It only took you all 5 minutes to exit the volcano, with her exit. Might have something to do with it not being filled with tedious traps. Speaking of which. “HOW DO I REMOVE THIS STENCH” Aki is yelling at Wilsa. “Take a bath,” “Why you!” Aki’s verbal bombardment continues. Rozalin takes this opportunity to speak to you. “It seems things have only gotten more interesting thanks to your silver tongue. So now we go to fight an angry fire elemental after meeting THE Destroyer. Hehe, I’m getting excited over how much fun this is sure to be." She fidgets for a bit while walking.Rozalin also tells you. “The Tower of Spite is the tallest mountain in the accursed lands in the north center of the land. It will take a while to reach from here, especially with the dangers that are sure to be on the way.” Now that you are back in the city you have a choice to make. >Spend time in town and leave tomorrow (doing what)>Leave now. No time to waste!>Write in
>>399392Can't think of anything to do in town so Leave now.
>>399421“We should leave now,” you declare. “If you are sure..” Aki says. Very well, Rozalin says and Wilsa silently follows. Rozalin warns you before leaving, though. “The outskirts of the accursed lands are arguably the safest, but the tower is located deep in the lands. Night time there will be treacherous, I have heard there are villages sprawled out every now and then but we need to make sure we are safe above all else.” Rozalin is earnestly concerned. Aki puts her claw on your arm. “Alright, we’ll be careful.” You had no way of guaranteeing that but as the leader, you need to say these things. Your journey beginsRoll flat d20

>>399492Your journey was going fairly well all things considered. But that soon changed. Rozalin turns her neck quickly back and forth. Her ears twitched violently. “Someone is coming….” she states. You ready into a defensive stance. You honestly had no idea if Rozalin or Wilsa could even fight. Actually, you are pretty sure Wilsa can’t fight. Either way, you and Aki could probably manage. What came out at you though was a little girl. She had small bat wings on her back and an imp tail. Despite her traditionally devilish appearance, she seemed quite scared of what was going on. “A-A-A-A-Are you going to town? M-M-M-Mommy said I needed to go there,” >Try to help the little girl>This might be a trap, better to just let it go>Attack>Run
>>399506How can We not help such a defenseless little daemon.
>>399520You can’t just leave a little girl. You have Rozalin trot over to her. “Are you sure?” “Positive,” Rozalin turns to Akitani, “Is she always this nice. Almost always.” “Almost you say… hehe, In other words,” Rozalin chuckles. You reach your hand down to the little girl. “Hello there we are heading to the nearest town, would you like to come with us?” “Mommy said not to go with strangers” Then why did she ask in the first place? Maybe she is just confused. “What if… I pinky promise you.” “Pinky promise?” she tilts her head. “From where I am from it is a sacred ritual. If one person promises something with a pinky promise that means it is legally binding. Only the worst of the worst break thIn other words, If I break my promise to you I would be a disgrace of a human being. So what do you say?” “Well… alright,” she says reluctantly. You hold out your pinky, “I promise to make sure that you get to the nearest town safely, on my honor as a human being.” She locks her pinky with yours. You then raise your hands slowly up and back down. “With that, the promise has been secured.” You hold out your hand to her. She accepts and you place her right in front of you on Rozalin's back. “Are you okay with being up here?” you ask to make sure she is comfortable. “Sooooo soooooooooffttt.” it seems no one was a match for Rozalin's unparalleled levels of warmth and softness. Your journey continues, but now with +1 who is slowly beginning to enjoy herself on Rozalin’s back.Roll flat d20

>>399595One again you feel like someone is watching you. You tell the young one to not be scared as you draw your weapons. 3 hellhounds burst out of the nearby brush. They only people you know for sure can fight are you if Rozalin helps and Akitani. Other than that you need to protect Wilsa and the young imp. Fighting the vicious dogs may be difficult. But the blazing red beasts don’t give you time to think and rush in. >Write inLast post for the night, be back tomorrow maybe around 5pm pst

>>400748You Raise your arm and try to power a raise dead spell and you feel like you may have missed the mark. However, to your surprise, you summoned 5, even though you figured the most that would have produced would have been 1. This place might have a connection to death magic you think. You send your skeleton soldiers as fodder against the hellhounds while Aki was busy petrifying one of them. You and Rozalin charge into the fray making a few decent swipes at the beasts. You circle back to Wilsa since you are afraid she might not know how to fight. “Ahhh,” you hear her shout and she throws her axe at the hounds. Surprisingly she manages to knick one of them, but it was far from a fine throw. Your skeletons are keeping 1 of the hounds busy. Akitani is freezing another. The third hound is slightly injured but jumps haphazardly at you. His mouth looked on fire almost as he prepared to bite into whatever he got ahold of. You have to think quickly.>Use the little imp as a shield>Punch it in the face and hope for the best>Write in

Rolled 19 + 6 (1d20 + 6)>>400885
>>400898You raise your sword quickly. The hound was too focused on killing to see your movements. “Auuuuu” You hear it yelp as your blade pierced through the hounds mouth. You figured he was already dying if not dead by that point, but to make sure you swish your blade around and cut down out of him. The husk of a once crazed hound falls to the ground. Aki’s petrification skills have been improving as she has just finished the hound she was working on. Your skeletons were contending with the final hound who was suffering annoyances rather than blows. Aki began to petrify that one while it was preoccupied.It didn’t seem like this would take much longer. You instead address the now shivering little girl in front of you. “It’s alright” you try to calm her. “Those doggies were scary but I promised to keep you safe.” Tears were welling in her eyes, but she nods her head to your words. “Yeah”After another few minutes, the hounds had thoroughly been dealt with. Aki makes her way toward you and notices the little girls fearfulness. She stops for a second and then slithers back over to the new stone dogs. After a couple seconds of work, you see that she placed the dogs in funny positions next to each other. The once vicious hounds looked to be having a small argument at a dinner table with their third companion who was tired of hearing their arguing with its head down on the table and paws over its ears. She dresses one of the dogs with some minor jewelry she had on her to further increase the oddity of the scene. You honestly had no idea what she was doing or why, but then you heard a small clapping come from below you. The young imp was clapping and giggling “ehehe,” Akitani slithers back to the young imp. Akitani slithers back over to the young imp and says while smiling. “Not so scary now is it?” “Ehehe, no.”. Honestly considering what you did to that one hound this humor was a little too black for your tastes but at least Aki could help the young imp relax around you all. She seems to be pretty good with kids. In fact, you remember that the first time you met her she was looking after children.
>>401088“If that is over,” Rozalin speaks now that the fight has concluded. “We should head to town as soon as possible. We may have faced only three but the fact that the hounds are becoming active means that night is coming. You’ve come to trust Rozalin's accurate summarizations of this land. “Then we should head there double time!” You signal to everyone to move out. Wilsa runs over to grab her axe and while doing so you see her bow quickly to the dogs and make some hand motions across her chest. She runs back to you all without a word. You spotted a town on the horizon as you saw the day and night cycle begin to shift as the blue skies began to turn orange. The village you come across is quite small and run down. Few people live here and most pay no attention to you. Like absolutely no one acknowledges you here. It’s a little creepy.>Stay in this town>Try to make it somewhere else before nightAlso party exp = 5000/6250
>>401117Let us not risk it and stay in this town. Though stay on guard.
>>401129We should try to stay here if possible. You really don’t want to be outside during whatever may happen. You go to rent a room at the small inn that is here, but the people there don’t acknowledge your existence. Nor that of any of your companions. “Rozalin, do you know what is going on,” you ask. “I can’t say. Though I would keep our guard up at all times regardless.” You feel a pulling on your shirt. “Are we in a safe town?” “We are not sure, but I will keep you safe.” Remember you smile and raise your pinky. You leave money on the inn main desk and hope for the best. You decided to have a watch set up. “Alright who wants the first watch,” you ask “I will!” Wilsa volunteers. “Great, who wants the second watch?” “I do” Wilsa volunteers” “Great… who wants the third watch?” “Me!” Wilsa again offers. “Wilsa you can’t stay up all night.” you try to reason with her. “How else can I keep an eye on you at all times. “Wilsa we aren’t going to harm you, your father or anyone who is willing to talk with us.” “And why should I believe you?” “Because we could have let that dog kill you back there.” “ugghh,” That must have hurt. “Regardless I will watch you at all times!” “Would it be alright if we had someone else watch with you?” “I suppose” It’s something. Night descents and you drift to sleep. The young imp opts to sleep between you and Aki Rozalin, takes first watch with Wilsa. Every now and then you can hear chatter, but as the night progresses chatter turns into hustle and bustle. It was almost as if thousands of people came to town to talk and do business. You also heart footsteps on the roofs. >Try to figure out what is going on (will require stealtH)>Sleep time

Save us a lot ta workin’” the voices disappear as you once again her footsteps on your roof as if someone jumped off. You make your way back to bed and notice your watch crew. Rozalin was awake, but Wilsa seemed to have been completely comatose. You ask Rozalin “Did you?” “No, she drifted off in a manner of minutes.” “hehe” You laugh to yourself.. Rozalin looks stern, however. “I too heard those voices and though I can’t say who they might be looking for I believe the part about see-through people might be concerning.” “Yeah, we should leave as soon as we can tomorrow.” “For now, it may be best to rest. Though I would vastly prefer to have a companion during my duties. It would give us a chance to talk one on one more intimately.” Rozalin smiles and pats the ground next to her.>Join Rozalin for watch and late night chit-chat>Go back to sleep in the bed.Also, roll a d20

The Time has come, I had hoped to finish one more update but I am committed to my other task now. Hopefully I'll be back tonight.
>>401713You decide this might be a good time to talk to her. You accept her offer and crawl over beside her. You lean back against her and once again are greeted with what must be the comfiest hair in the world. “Careful you’re drooling.” “I’ma what?!” you're taken back and check for drool where there wasn’t any. “Hahaha, please forgive me, you are just too cute to not tease now and then. It’s no wonder why you are bombarded by women throwing themselves at you” She teases. “Yeah, well I wish they'd stop.” “That won't be simple. For that, you would have to change yourself. Which I think secretly even you don’t want to do.” You answer annoyed by her assumptions, “Don’t pretend that you know me.” She seems taken back, “I apologize, It was just that I have been in a similar position myself a while ago, and I am just making observations. I will refrain from now on.” She says sincerely. You’re curious, “Now that we are on the topic, why didn’t you attack me or mistake me for a man and express shock when finding out.” “Do you take me for one of the lust driven demons that reside here. I may no longer be a Unicorn, but even I still remember how important grace and tact are! “You were a Unicorn?” “Opps, I… don’t wanna talk about it.” She hangs her head. But she pops back up after a minute.“We should concern ourselves with our immediate issues.” She states, “We have Wilsa, a “daughter?” of an ancient dragon, the little imp you decided to snag and the whole issue with Azrazzor and the spire.” “Don’t forget a mysterious former Unicorn” You jeer. “Ara, how impartial of you,” She licks her lips. After your quick jeer, you begin to think, “Yeah, I know.” you pause. “I want to ask the kid more in the morning. I don’t think Wilsa intends any of us harm, she just seems paranoid. As for the former unicorn….” You glance over at Rozalin. “Undecided.” You turn away. “Awww, don’t be like that.” She pets you. When have I lied to you so far?” “You haven’t necessarily…” She presses you against her body. Warmth begins to overtake you. “She begins to whisper, “But it’s okay, I understand your caution.” She continues to pet you. “Though you should know by now that I only intend on seeing this all with you, her hand runs up and down your body. “There is no need for you to be so…. Tense.” her hands stop on their route and begin to messages your shoulders. This feels absolutely incredible and you are slowly losing yourself to her warmth.>Continue in this warmth>Resist, d20-2Took longer than I thought, and this will be all for today. Tomorrow I will also be disposed for some time, but hopefully not as long as this. I will update in the thread and on twitter when tomorrow's session will begin.

Safe Haven will begin shortly ~20minutes. I have to do errands once again starting at 5pm PST and will be unavailable for some time
>>405719For a brief second you were overcome by Rozalin's charms, but only for a second. “I refuse to let this happen a third time!” you say. “Wha-?!” Despite not having the function of your legs you manage to push her torso down. You grab her shoulders and with you on top of her pin her to the ground. Rozalin seems surprised at first but then puts on her usual half smug face. “Ara, if you liked to be the one dominating all you had to do was say-” “Enough!” You apply more pressure to her shoulders. “Eee” she winces in pain. “I don’t know who you truly are, or your intentions but you will not try to entrance me ever again! You will not attempt to do the same with Aki, and you most certainly not touch the girl.” “My, look at you making demands. You know you would be more intimidating if you could walk. Though your appearance would give a flair to your dominating appeal. You could be a crippled dominatrix, haha” She is still this smug? “I said enough!” You slap her. “We are working together only because you have agreed to help us. If you intend us harm or no longer wish to be here then leave.” “Hahahaha, my my, this was the last thing I expected to happen tonight. I knew you would be interesting.” She pulls up her hand and rubs her face where you just slapped her and licks her lips.” “Very well,” she starts, “I promise that I do not intend you or your companion harm and will see this through providing all the help I can.” “How can I believe that” She holds out her pinky in response. Could this really be genuine. Or is she just trying to tease you still, despite everything.>Teach her a promise>”I pinky swear to…”>Write in
>>405818Let us accept the pinky swear.
>>406493You raise your pinky to hers. She may be either teasing you or doesn’t understand that what you said about pinky swears was incredibly exaggerated. Either way, it will hopefully put and end to this. You lock pinkies. “It’s a promise,intiment” you say. To which Rozalin only smiles. “Now with that out of the way,” Rozalin draws, “Would it be okay if you let go of me? Or do you intend to seal our deal "inintimate" manner?” “Ahh,” you honestly forgot since you got a little heated there. You moved to let her go when you hear a barrage of knocks on your door from the other side you hear, “Why is our room locked, dear?” “I have no idea, the front desk attendant hand our room reserved for this whole week, perhaps he changed the locks in the time we were gone, and our key no longer works.” “Or perhaps some hooligans has taken residence in there!” You hear louder and louder bangings coming from the door. Wilsa, Aki, and the little imp are still knocked out, but you and Rozalin decide to end your little tangent and deal with the pressing matter. “We can either sneak out, try to talk our way through this, or ambush.” “We have no idea if they are actually a happy couple or those weird people we heard earlier.” Rozalin continues, “This land has taught me that you can never be too careful, I would run.” >Run>Stay and talk>Stay and ambush
>>406552Stay and talk. We are crippled and everyone else is asleep. Also outside at night is bad idea.
Responsibilities came up again be back as soon as I am able.
>>406702“We can probably talk to them,” you hope anyways. With your group in your current state, there really was no ability to either fight nor run, so doing what you do bet and talk might be the safest option. “Rozalin, please let me ride you for appearances. If things go south I would rather be able to move than crawl.” “You never quit do you, after being rough with a girl you still expect more?” Despite her tone, she does what you ask. You wonder how she can act like this at all times. Once in position, you have Rozalin open the door slowly. You see a perfectly normal human couple in front of you. But there is something off about their appearance, they seemed to be wearing almost ancient style of clothing and are themselves as a whole were almost transparent. “Sir and madam we regret that we are intruding but we had no idea that we were doing so, you see last night we-” You were cut off, “I knew it dear! Hooligans are in our room, we should call the guards!” “The man steps in front of the woman to protect her.” “Honey, we must make sure they haven’t stolen our things. Since they are here we can investigate.” “But we really only wanted to-” “To steal our valuables is what you wanted!” “No we jus-” Rozalin puts up her hand to stop you. She then throws up her hands. “We’ve been found out! And just when I was able to steal their prized item. But we still have time quickly let's make for the window!” She begins to turn to run. What is she doing? “No, you don’t!” The man reaches out and tries to grab Rozalin. His hand slips through her. “What!?” You and the man shout at the same time. The woman tries to do the same and her hand also slips through Rozalin. “Well that settles it, Rozalin says, “They’re ghosts.” “Ghosts?!” “It really is of no concern, although they can interact with us it seems they lack the power to harm us. We should just ignore them." “Guards I’ll grab the guards!” The woman shouts.Roll a d20+4

>>408288You try to really get through to them. “Sir madam, as you can see we are not ghosts and had no idea we were trespassing. During the day no one acknowledged us and we did leave money at the front counter for our stay. I am sorry to intrude on your home like this but we need to stay here to keep safe from the terrors of the night?” You pull out the best you can in this situation. “Terrors of the night?” the man asks. “Yes the hellspawn that increases in activity overnight, and we have heard people searching for others to likely intend harm.” “We will leave as soon as the morning comes, but if that is not good enough then we will sleep in the hallway.” “The hallway?!” the man seems surprised. You really wanted to hit home that you all needed to stay here. “Then please do!” The woman says. “Honey don’t be unreasonable. If they are willing to go so far as the sleep in a hallway what they say must be truth.” “Dear you are forgetting that the only people here at night are the townspeople.” “With all due respect madam, a town full of ghosts that can’t interact with the physical world would not stop monsters from attacking.” “You… have a point.” she huffs, “Fine you may stay, but you absolutely must leave in the morning!” “Understood.” The woman storms off. The man readdresses you “I am sorry for her, she hasn’t trusted anyone out of the ordinary in hundreds of years.’ “That is alright, we are intruding, granted we did not know it.” you shrug. “I will let you get back to resting then, but I must add to what my wife was saying. The village is completely dormant beside us at night, if you wished to see for yourself you can feel safe doing so.” >Explore Ghost town>Nope, Rest, NowI will be active for two hours tonight or until ~7pm PST
>>408288You try to really get through to them. “Sir madam, as you can see we are not ghosts and had no idea we were trespassing. During the day no one acknowledged us and we did leave money at the front counter for our stay. I am sorry to intrude on your home like this but we need to stay here to keep safe from the terrors of the night?” You pull out the best you can in this situation. “Terrors of the night?” the man asks. “Yes the hellspawn that increases in activity overnight, and we have heard people searching for others to likely intend harm.” “We will leave as soon as the morning comes, but if that is not good enough then we will sleep in the hallway.” “The hallway?!” the man seems surprised. You really wanted to hit home that you all needed to stay here. “Then please do!” The woman says. “Honey don’t be unreasonable. If they are willing to go so far as the sleep in a hallway what they say must be truth.” “Dear you are forgetting that the only people here at night are the townspeople.” “With all due respect madam, a town full of ghosts that can’t interact with the physical world would not stop monsters from attacking.” “You… have a point.” she huffs, “Fine you may stay, but you absolutely must leave in the morning!” “Understood.” The woman storms off.

The village is completely dormant beside us at night, if you wished to see for yourself you can feel safe doing so.” He did express earlier that he did not understand the terrors in the night that seem almost universal. Maybe it is safe to look around a little.>Explore Ghost town>Nope, Rest, NowI will be active for two hours tonight or until ~7pm PST
>>411051Damn inquisitive nature. Let us look around the ghost town a little

>>411151“You know what sure,” you say. “Are you serious?” Rozalin questions your judgement. “We just argued to stay in here, and heard those people on the roof and you actually want to still go out? Boy, you’re odd.” She had a point, but you were just too curious. This was a literal ghost town! How could you not be curious? “You seem to be forgetting something key here” Rozalin looks smug once more. “You need me to help you move, and I am not going outside!” She was right, but you think you can convince her. “Rozalin we might be able to learn valuable information outside, these ghosts are of humans, which haven’t been in these lands for hundreds of years, and frankly, we did know there were other human settlements beside the ancient one near the Felwood.” “You, are right, but the risks are too great.” “But we can’t talk to them during the day.” “But the risks are-” “Worth the reward.” you finish her sentence, albeit differing from its original intention. “Fine, but if we do run into trouble You will hear about the rest of this entire journey!” “Agreed.” You and Rozalin begin your walk down through the now bustling inn. Drinks were being passed around, the attendant has her hands busy fighting off overly courageous men. The innkeeper even waves you over and thanks you for paying at the front. You left the inn and found that the streets were full of people- err, “former” people. Men, women, and children were bustling. One child's ball flies your direction. You try to catch it, but it slips literally through your hands. You say under your breath. “What could have happened here?” “No idea. Only someone ancient as them may know.” Might be prudent to ask someone.You approach a man who is running a food stand that has utterly no business. “Excuse me, sir, would you mind if I ask you something. I’m not from around here.” The man scoffs, “That's obvious considering your company.” he points to Rozalin. “But I don’t have time kid, can’t you see I’m busy?” You look around to try and find some semblance of people interested in his wares, but nothing. “... …. … …” "Fine, but you have to buy something!” “Deal. What I want to ask is what happened here? Why are things like this and all of you ghosts?” “Hard to say,” he sniffs. “Last thing I remember from the old says was a bright flash. And then this. It wasn’t like we all died and after a while, we became this way. We just instantly became this, and have been here ever since.” “And no one bothers you?” “Not a soul, people stroll through now and again during the day but nothing when we are able to move freely at night.” Interesting.>Write in
>>411254Ask him and around town about the towns name? If they know of nearby settlements? If they know about a explorer called Siegfried? If they know of any other Humans? And if they have seen any interesting folks come by, besides us of course. Also how long the town has been like this.
>>411288You ask him a flurry of questions regarding the town. “The town's name is Katanska and most nearby settlements got destroyed when the destroyer made his way through there a couple hundred years ago. There used to be many back before all this which was like 5-600 years I think ago. When literally nothing about life changes, time becomes blurry.” “Well what about people, did anyone noticeable come through that wasn’t us, other humans? Also, do you know of a guy called Siegfried?” He thinks for a second. “No, not really, most keep to themselves and leave us alone. I haven’t heard of any other humans up here and I have no idea who this Seigfried is.” You inform him, “He was a famous explorer from 500 years ago who is said to have catalogued all species in the plane.”“Can’t say I have heard of him, but before the event, there was a man who came and was quite inquisitive about our village, but I can’t say if he was this Seigfried or not.”It doesn’t seem like he has too much information about what happened. You turn to leave when he calls out, “Ohh I just remembered there was a human teenage girl that passed through here about two years ago. I can’t remember much else by she seemed to be in a hurry if I remember right.” Another human alive? Maybe she is also from Mother’s castle. But why would she be in the accursed lands all by herself? For the shopkeepers help you give him a bit of money. He said you had to buy something but you couldn’t actually pick up his wares, so paying him for information was all you could really do. “Thank you,” you tell the shopkeeper and you head off. You were walking down the way when you hear something from up above. “Oi is dat her?!” “looks lyke it. Da boss will be pleased wonce we gets her.” You see two goblins on the roof tops looking down at you and Rozalin. “No gurl don’t run dat would just make dis harder for ya” He pulls out a crossbow. They must have been the two from the rooftops earlier, and they were, in fact, looking for you! “You wanted to know why but, being threatened with a crossbow was more concerning. “Rozalin, can you outrun them?” “Definitely, they seem to be nitwits. But where do we run two, we need to grab Akitani, Wilsa, and the little one, and by that time they might call back up.” “Shi-” A crossbow bolt flies past you and Rozalin. The ghost crowd started to panic and run. “Dat's a warnin’ da next one will get you in da leg!” the goblin promised. “Yeah gets them real good in the leg he will” the other adds. You don’t have much time. You had your sword on you but were at range. Aki, Wilsa, and the imp were likely still asleep. Plus it was night, and you had no idea if this commotion would stir other beasts into action. This was bad. Through it all, Rozalin simply said, “Told you this was a bad idea.”>Write inLikely last post of the night as DnD calls
>>411464Let us start by summoning some corporeal undead. They need to start climbing walls to get up to goblins and to serve as a distraction.We then need to go agile as we make our way back to the Inn. We can't get to the targets so we need move. Zig-zag patterns. Make it so they can't get a good bead on us.Also see if we can't rouse the towns people to assist. Might be a stretch but ghosts could serve as a helpful distraction.
Just got home. I will make a new thread and begin posting around ~7:30pm PST.
