A person just screamed nearby, and you're debating whether or not to check it out?

Unless there's some compelling reason why you need to stay where you are, you should probably go investigate.
No. 722347 ID: 5ad4a7

Well Prance, you're so worried then you can go check on them. Bring us with you, while you're at it. Windslow, I suppose you can follow behind but remain out of sight.
No. 722389 ID: 8cc531

Can't we talk to them directly?
@Modesty: Is everything alright?
No. 722407 ID: 6b95ea

To be fair, Onidial is our enforcer. I would say call out to them and ask if they require assistance.
Also if any topless photos are being taken; any impure thoughts could harm Onidial right?
No. 722437 ID: 5ad4a7

Her vulnerability is being touched by a person who has impure thoughts on their mind:
>"skin to skin contact with someone currently bearing sexual desires causes her natural immunity to begin to shut down causing severe burns from her own acid."

So basically she can't have sex. Not without something separating skin from skin, or something giving her magical immunity to acid.

You can silently broadcast messages to the one who holds "The Badge of Ancient Wisdom" and to nearby relic owners while the Badge is possessed by an attuned individual, however those who posses these relics have no silent way to respond, you also have no ability to read thoughts

Prance: "If you don't want to play the part of inspector I will, hand me the badge"

Inspector Windslow hands Inspector Prance the badge, Prance is not attuned to "The Badge of Ancient Wisdom" so you now can only send messages to Inspector Prance

Inspector Prance hobbles up to Sister Onidial and Modesty Roads but remains out of sight

Anyway, just call out to them. They sound alright. Maybe a quick peek.

Inspector Prance tries to get a closer look
but ends up running right into Modesty Roads and Sister Onidial

No. 723206 ID: a6dc58

Improbable, given that 'walking' into a wall doesn't cause bruises. Falling or running might.

Maybe also, offending the Sister with the topless photo thing depending on how it was handled.

It sounds like a talk on team cooperation might be in order. Perhaps a word with Sister Onidal on the side.
No. 723208 ID: a075ba

Miss Roads doesn't walk, she floats.

Infighting between investigators will not be tolerated, is that clear?
No. 723214 ID: 735512

It sound more like modesty tried to get a photo for evidence against deamon marks as commanded by lord humility and she punched her.

I would go for calling them out on it and telling them they can't expect to perform or hide abuse between members of this investigation as it is going on.

They should fess up to what happened and we can talk it out if needed.
No. 723224 ID: 5b9f30

Prance, say something along the lines of: "Ladies, we are to be employed as investigators. We may be required to deceive others within pursuit of truth, but we should not have it within the team. Miss Roads does not walk, would not have had reason to move swiftly towards a wall, and would not have received that precise injury from doing so. My reading of the situation is that someone had a strong objection to Lord Humility's requirements, which is understandable. Violence, however, is a severely excessive response. Now, walking around with a visibly injured young woman in our party is likely to interfere with our attempts at diplomacy. We will also likely suffer from ongoing internal tension in our group due to lingering fears and resentment between the two of you. I think an apology to clear grievances would be appropriate. I also worry that excluding one member of the team from a security measure already applied to its majority will cause mistrust, but if anyone had the greatest claim to exemption it would be one bound to purity as yourself, Sister. We shall not require it of you, then, though I invite you to reconsider."

Modesty: Let Prance speak, then use your Cheerful""Turn that frown upside down!" ability to cure Sister Onidial's anger and embarrassment, to help clear this up.

Have you met lord Humility? He is a bit odd at times.

We would like to have evidence in our possession that proves beyond a doubt that all of the investigation team are in fact not hiding demon marks or other hidden runes.

We want to make sure that when we do track down our criminals that no one can doubt anyone on our team.

If you want you can see some of the other photos we have in evidence.
No. 723269 ID: 094652

Onidial, have you MET Humility? For FIVE seconds? Any moment he's not screaming, he's either too disinterested to care about anything but his own agenda or too aroused to think about what he slobbers out of his mouth!

Look, just take multiple close-up photos so that none of them have any actual sexual content due to lack of focus. Or maybe you could just stop taking nude photos for the old @#$% already .
No. 723272 ID: 4854ef

Ahahaha... Lord Humilty is a strong and.. Interesting ruler! But yes he did state what she needed to do and that she is correct on account.
No. 723298 ID: 5b9f30

Prance, present evidences 00D and 00F to prove the requirement has already been undertaken on the existing team members. If this was a mere prank or prurience, Modesty would not have taken a picture of herself as well, now, would she?

Modesty, reaffirm that you're not lying when you say Humility asked you to take pictures like this. Also seriously, use your Cheerful ability.

Onidial: Can you hear us? We'll back Miss Roads up. We saw Lord Humility specifically tell her that he needed her to take some nude photos. He also said that partial nudity would do, but would be less preferable, so this topless arrangement is a compromise to begin with.

Besides, you are wearing quite heavy armor, which can be dangerous. In the event of potential drowning, suffocation or heat stroke, it could be useful for one of the other female team members to know how to assist you in removing or donning it swiftly.
No. 723383 ID: f562b1

No. 724297 ID: a107fd

Humility's office is right over there, you can ask him yourself. Or not! I mean, if it turns out somebody on the investigative team was secretly a demon cultist all along, and you're the only one who didn't submit to a search, that's still fairly open-and-shut. Let's go find our stenographer so we can get on with the actual murder investigation.
No. 724298 ID: 595d54

"We ARE his agents, and he's right there, we can visit him now."
No. 724299 ID: 007cf4

Well, Prance, now it's a matter of your reputation! You can't work with this woman if she thinks you're Prince Prurience.

Call Windslow over and give him back the badge so that we can talk to her directly, along the lines laid out in >>723298 .

To which we will also add that the words of scripture she quotes apply as much to herself as to anything. Hope, trust and faith are not only for the lowly to the high, Sister, but between mortals to each other. You speak of the virtues of trust while giving none to the companions assigned to you by Humility himself!
No. 724303 ID: a075ba

>I believed in the wisdom of the gods, and their agents
Didn't you just slap an agent of a god for saying something you weren't willing to accept. She works directly for him! And this investigation was convened by divine mandate!

You sure?

No. 724576 ID: e55b17

Damn it Prance, we told you we wanted to be able to speak directly! So we could tell Modesty to drop hints to Humility about what we're up to. We have our reasons for things we tell you to do.

Let's see if you can redeem yourself, and demonstrate that you can withhold your creativity when needed. Tell Humility, in these exact words: "Lord Humility, as per the instructions you gave to Miss Roads as camera operator, we have been taking photographic evidence of the team's unsullied bodies as proof against demonic influence, as you can see."

Then you present evidences 00D and 00F, and continue: "Sister Onidial, however, appears to be sensitive to such matters and has refused to believe such instructions were given. As such, we came to ask you directly, Lord Humility: did you give instructions to Miss Roads that photographs such as these were to be taken, or not?"
No. 724581 ID: 5ad4a7

Ask him if he instructed Modesty to take photos of your team with their clothes off.
No. 724643 ID: a788b7


This one. Onidial has a point, and Modesty clearly displayed a willingness to deceive the group with her 'ran into a wall' remark.
No. 724932 ID: cd73ff

Evidence Presented

The Evidence softened Lord Humility's mood

No. 724941 ID: 211d83

Hand us over to him so we can talk.

Lord Humility the entire purpose of this investigation is to prove beyond a reasonable doubt who attacked Larriette. Without that proof this realm is doomed.

Many powers will seek to obstruct our efforts and may even call into question our evidence or character if we can not prove that our investigators where not tainted before joining the investigation.

Modesty thought of this idea so that no one could make wild accusations against you later on when the case is cross examined. Also it makes sure we are not working with a undercover demonic agent.

Plus at this point if we only have part of the team in evidence its going to look very suspicious later on.
No. 724944 ID: b2db3f

Reassure him that you have not forced anyone. So far it has all been completely consensual and until our enforcer here we did not even realize it might be a problem.

I mean we are the wisdom of the ages. We don't have sexual urges like you do so the idea that we are collecting these for our own enjoyment is ridiculous.

Just do not want there to be a big gap in our evidence line up that someone could use against us later on.

But it is refused!

No. 725018 ID: a33f42

You know. I think we overstayed out welcome here with Lord Humility.
Let's just swallow our pride and be on our way. Perhaps ask Onidial what was going on before we met her. Why was that chucklehead yelling at her.
Also apologize profusely to Lord Humility.
No. 725127 ID: 05ba9f

Koistas an idiot we already proved that, but fine if Sister Onidial does not wish to go through with this then she doesn't have to, we'll just have to treat her with a bit more suspicion and make sure she never goes anywhere alone.

Apologize to Lord Humility, it was never ours' nor Windslows' intent to abuse our power over others.
No. 725128 ID: 094652

Notify Humility that if he keeps reassigning the case to multiple inspectors before any progress is made, then the public will lose confidence and informants will be less inclined to assist the investigation. You need a @#$%ing LEAD.
No. 725143 ID: f562b1

It's possible that they found proof that there isn't any demon marks, and Humility just wants to hide that there was a suspicion in the first place. Guess that means we don't need to take those pictures again.
No. 725175 ID: a107fd

Hey, apology accepted. I think everyone is a bit on edge due to the assassination attempt of Lariette.
Prance, give Lord Humility some encouragement. Tell him you understand and continue the mission. Windslow might be wondering what is taking us so long.
No. 726444 ID: 094652

Guess you're not retarded, but I'm not buying it. Let's just continue the investigation already.

Amazing I did not know we would run into someone so important so early in our investigation. It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance sir.

As head Archivist I am sure you must have read most everything in here. By chance could you enlighten us as to that period of time?

Someone involved in the attack on the goddess no doubt wanted to hide some important information in this attack. If you could tell us more about this Garendara and the history of that era it would be most helpful.
No. 733490 ID: b7883c

Well that certainly sounds relevant to the crime. Ask what he knows about the death described in the records, and what he saw of the arson's perpetrator.
No. 734086 ID: a33f42

Think we should snap a photo of the crime scene as well?
No. 734089 ID: b2d501

Question: Was that section compromised of sets and/or series and not singular books? If the perpetrator wanted to burn a single book, then we're screwed because it would be too easy to destroy an annotated copy, possibly one with schematics or coded messages.

But, if there was a collection of sets, then it's also possible that the perpetrator was trying to throw us off track, by burning a set of books which contained a specific (yet known) piece of intel that pointed at the wrong suspect, especially if the set is popular for a specific topic. I guess it depends on how relevant some of the sets are, and whether or not they are well-known by entities not on the perpetrator's side.

And it's also possible that the perpetrator simply burned some notes hidden in that section.

Basically, this is probably a dead end. We should get a catalogue of the books that were destroyed, and "accidentally" give it to Koista so he can start his little investigation here. He might find something by the time we're almost done with the case.
