C.
Also tell Cat if he's really worried about the consent thing he needs to realize that she can refuse implied requests. Like if he just asks her if she wants to do a silly dance, she can say no, right? Same if he asks if she wants to fuck him. He can also order her to tell him if he's making her uncomfortable.
Also, the power dynamic is only really an issue if he requests sex. I mean, the issue is if she refuses sex, then there's an implied risk of reprisal due to the imbalance of power, right? If she's the one that always requests it, then there's nothing to worry about. Cat just needs to try not to expect it from her.

Oh, and has Cat used up his power for today? He should upgrade someone if he has energy left.

Being comfortable in the presence of another person makes you associate comfort with them and increases your bond.

//Clothing Repair\\
NSFW 18+ Warning: This quest includes nudity and mild elements of non-con (clothing damage). Reader discretion advised.

Adventuring has never been safer! Healing spells and trinkets of mage armor are cheap, powerful and plentiful. Unfortunately, spells that protect clothing are still very, very expensive, and it didn’t take long for monsters to figure out new ways to drive off adventurers.

As a newly minted journeyman seamstress just opening up her own shop, you must propose clothes that fit your adventurer’s skills, protect them against dangers, fit their budget, flatter their sense of style, and protect their modesty. Public nudity is highly illegal!

It’s decided. I shall call my shop A Stitch in Time!

Now that I’m the face of the operation, appearances are important! It’s just me minding the shop, so I should put in extra effort to look good!

Does that mean I might actually have to put on makeup?

I groan. Then I immediately wince- my master can’t hear me complaining, or he’ll make me work twice as hard!

Oh.

It’s just me here. There’s no one to complain about me complaining! Ha!

I groan extra-loud and give a mighty UGGGGHHHHHH

I’m terrible with makeup. I don’t know how to do my eyebrows, or eyelashes, or do foundation, or anything. I just get it everywhere and it’s horrible.

>raid the closet
Marsh: "Utility closest should be our first stop. We might get a variety of gear in there, from fire power to first aid in there."

Captain: "They're probably expecting us to head to the infirmary after our fight, so they might have their eyes focused on the other entrance too."

Marsh: "Exactly."

Heading into ship, seems I'm right. I can smell others here, but I don't see anyone on this side.
Marsh: "Safe, move."

We quickly make our way into the utility closet and start taking inventory of useful items
Flare Gun x2
Flares x4
Box of matches x5 (20 matches per box)
Lavender Air Freshener can x2
Pocket knife
Radio x2 (batteries included!)
First aid kits x5 x4-ish
Sword absorbable liquid cleaning supplies.
Box of Shop Wipes.

There's also other cleaning stuff and tools in here but nothing I can think of being weaponized or useful. Just ask if there's something else you think we might need. The pipsqueak here is working on patching up the Captain's paw with some bandage wraps and disinfecting it with some of the alcohol wipe things that were in the kit. Nothing much inside for my burn though.

What all are we hauling with us? I don't have pockets on me, so I can only hold one other thing. Captain can probably haul more since his jacket has pockets. No idea if the lil fella is going to fight with us or not though, so that's something else to decide on.

You should take a radio, so should cap. Cap should take the flare gun and flares. They're not much but getting someone in the head with a blinding red hot flare could give you the split second you need to decide a fight.

Lil guy takes pocketknife so he's not unarmed, and air freshner to smell nice.

>You should take a radio, so should cap.
I grab the radios and hand one over to Captain.
Marsh: "Probably be smart in case we need to split up."

Captain: "Aye."

>Cap should take the flare gun and flares. They're not much but getting someone in the head with a blinding red hot flare could give you the split second you need to decide a fight.
Marsh: "Go take the flare gun too. We're going to need some good ranged options for combat."

He goes over and loads up.

>Lil guy takes pocketknife so he's not unarmed, and air freshner to smell nice.
I hand pipsqueak the pocket knife and some air freshener, along with some matches

Pipsqueak: "Matches and an air freshener?"

Marsh: "Not the safest of options for defense, but if things get really bad we'll need whatever we can get. Can you carry a first aid kit as well?"

Pipsqueak: "Sure can!"

Now it's time to decide what our plan of attack is going to be. We could make our way upstairs to the ship's controls and try to regain control of the ship. We don't know what we're really up against though, so we might get overpowered and outnumbered if we make a rush. There's freeing the captured crew in the brig down below to increase our numbers, but that'll be giving the enemy more time to break in and get the Captain's stock of guns and enchanted items. Or if you've got other approaches we could make, I'm all ears.

You don't have enough people to take the bridge. Marsh; you'll be the spearhead with tiny right behind you. Cap is in the worst shape so he should take up the rear. If the brig is near the engines you can sabotage them to make sure the rebels don't link up with any allies at sea on the way.

A quest about Reincarnation.

You follow CHI, a WING-KIN girl who used to be a MALE HUMAN in another dimension.

You’ve just become a teacher at the TENGU ACADEMY at the ripe young age of 16.

I've since learned that NUBS made the order, not NOODLE, and she's already paid us though we still need to deliver. Scratch the immediate crafting; skip to the discussion about finding a route. We only decide what we're making after that issue's been determined.

To start, I think we should research Manda Dense Materials I (as it may help our efficiency in further pursuits) and Color Theory (as it may simply be good to know).

For our background tasks, let's train our Precision with Nico.

It's better to pay off debts earlier than later, so give Ignis the 20K shinies we owe him. And since we have more to work with, let's alsosend Willamina 10K to find some rubber.

I think we should make 3 headbands of breathing and one lantern. This will use two arcanium ingots, but will be well worth it to make sure we can get the most out of the trip. We don't need to make a headband for every member of the team, as if it really comes down to it you could share them together, taking turns exploring areas the lantern can't let you reach.

Let's set Understanding on that Omnibus Pawn likes. It's pretty long, so cutting the timr i half would be for the best. Sire it'll make Pawn happy, but really it just seens like a fun read.

Finally, for our last TP, let's spend it on teaching the scientists. The sooner we get them to understand, the sooner we can claim those sweet sweet shines for the job, which will open more doors for us.

...hold up. I have a theory. Is it possible that this tale has an element of truth to it? Maybe there used to be a smaller plate attached to the bottom of TENGU, and that's where the magitech ruin is. Maybe if we find the attachment point and fly/fall directly down we can access it? Like, maybe there's a hole in the field that teleports people back to the top of the worldplate.


>BACKGROUND TASK
Switch to INTENSE MIND AND BODY DOJO TRAINING.
Also, ARM NOODLE.

>UNDERSTANDING'S TASK
Read the Book of Orders, since we kindof need to do it via Understanding in order to keep it secret that we know what's in the book.

>RESEARCH TASKS
MANA DENSE MATERIALS I
MANA VEINS

First TP of the year? Read a book! Cesare's Travels to be exact. Set Understanding to read the Fractured Fairy Tales.

New goal: Plan a runescripting road trip. Find out what destinations are likely to have new and powerful runes, and figure out what it takes to make it there!

Research task: Mana veins. What do they do? How do they do it? Also, shinies as mana materials.

Background task: Arm Noodle.
Speaking of, make Nubs the headbands/chokers. Dry goods can be packaged with much more mundane watertight materials.
Pay off three quarters of the debt now (15K), and the rest next year, plus a little extra. Invest 10K in William's hunt as well.

Many rest within this room, most of which have been ground to dust. Their spirits, just like their bodies, a dust so fine you struggled to even notice them.
What a terrible fate.
You call out in hopes of a response.
Whispers. Small, afraid, weak. Above?
Following the whispers up a ramp you notice the many alcoves lining it all contain parts of a whole, each one whispering, whimpering, begging.
You remove your cloak and place them within it, every bone, every shard, every splinter.
Not a single part will be left behind.
Piece by piece their whispers become one, their fear subsiding.
The final part, a skull ... dread sets in as it dawns on you, those lost within here will be of many shapes and sizes, Ippit included-- You have never had to set one of your own to rest.
You gather them all in one place and lay them out just as your mother had taught you.

A form, small, fragile, fading, The Father will come for them soon.
"You're safe", you say in hushed tones "You're safe now, little one."
They try to respond but their voice falls flat. Their warmth turning icy cold. A panic sets in, their face turning to sorrow, to fear.
"Worry not little one, rest now, rest." You say, taking their hand into your own.
Their expression turning to calm, they gently squeeze your hand in response.
You watch as hands unlike any you've seen before sprout from beneath the bones. They raise up like Strangle Weed around a tree, wrapping around their legs, their chest, their arms. Taking the Ippit's hands into his own, running a hand down their cheek.
You blink and they're gone.
That was the first time you'd seen it, The Father's embrace.

We Ippit are not allowed to remain within the Resting Lands for long, and yet, they must have been trapped here for generations.
These accursed halls break us, bind us, they delay The Fathers Embrace. Our Rotation.

Alone again you make your way down to the main hall.
As you move closer toward the doorways you sense a presence, a pained spirit stretching out into the darkness, their bones telling you a gruesome tale. The left door is most definitely not the one for you.
You turn your attention to the intricate runes above each door, warnings? Guides?
Raising to your tiptoes you gently run your hand across each doors plate, Old Tongue.
The only symbol you recognize is the rectangle, their equivalent of our letter A. The rest are familiar, but too fuzzy to understand.
If only you had paid attention to your lessons.
A gentle squeak echoes out from the right corridor, a clicking from the left responds.
It seems the middle door is your safest bet.
You make your way down as swift as possible, the sound of squeaks and clicks from behind growing louder and louder, closer and closer.

The tunnels scream out with the many voices of the lost and broken.
You ask out for guidance, for directions.
Hopefully they will put you on the right path

It's a straight shot up two flights, then you have a choice to make - I know not what lies beyond either exit waiting for you, but regardless of which path you choose, you aren't quite free of this maze just yet; either way, "left" is the way for all remaining choices!

>The witch was named Lema, which is just Prince Amel’s name spelled backwards. So it’s obvious, darlings, that they are either the same person and the curse is that they turned evil, or that they are long lost twins and that being the motive for the curse. It’s a common occurrence in drama’s like these, my dumplings, so I simple guessed on one of them.
But if the QM is aware of these things being a common occurrence in dramas, they would’ve taken advantage of that and used your knowledge against you. The names could’ve easily been done that way on purpose to be misleading and lead you to jump to conclusions based on a coincidence. Which would’ve then lead to the group doing something wrong because of incorrect information and potentially failing the quest.

So like I said before, you got lucky that’s the plot that Amelia had planned and she didn’t fake you out.

Speaking from personal experience here. I don’t like how Jeshan thinks his blind luck is due to him being smart. He was very lucky it wasn’t a fake out!

It is the FOURTH AGE, and now is a time of dire peril and uncertainty; the GREAT KHAN, AZAD KHAZARAD,
has perished at the apex of his ascension ceremony — leaving prophecies in tatters. Once mighty empires
teeter on the precipice of destruction, and the greatest among them, the KHANATE OF KHOR, lies in ruin
beneath a dark and mysterious PALL.

From the heart of the KHANATE, a terrible CURSE has begun to sweep the land, the spreading PALL warping
the very landscape and changing those with the misfortune of its touch in strange and sometimes MONSTROUS
ways. Sages say this is a prelude to the END TIMES: if left unchecked, all may be lost.

Desperate to avert calamity, many have dispatched expeditions or even armies, hoping to quash and forestall
such great perils and open the way to the FATED CITY at the heart of the KHANATE, where it is said answers
may lie. Few have returned, and the realms of man have grown restless -- and those beyond watch with
a growing concern.

Crouched low, you believe you are well-hidden a short distance from the camp's periphery as you settle into a kneel. There are a great many tents populating the lowlands before the fortress city, though you can see now that a number of them appear to have crumpled or collapsed in apparent disuse or neglect. Most of the large tents boast a motif of burgundy with gold -- bars of gold crossed in a symbol that stirs familiarity from your preparation with the Order: the SARKEN, an enemy of the KHOR.

Above, you had nominally suspected it -- but it now seems clear that an opposing force arrived at the city and that a battle must have ensued. As your eyes rove the encampment, flitting to what had been most likely a bivouacked army, you count ten visible denizens outside of tents; they are largely apart from one another, dispersed into smaller gatherings or going about individual business. Not remotely an army by any measure; it is possible the others have moved beyond the fortress, deeper into the KHANATE.

Silently, you observe and take stock of what you can see: near to one of the larger tents, a mat has been laid out with assorted belongings and supplies -- a few valuables noticeable among them. Off in the distance, a pair of individuals sit lethargic across from a guttered out campfire. Near to the gathered loot, a trio gathers before one of the men begins to show off a slender blade of silver with boastful enthusiasm.

Nearest to you, your nose wrinkles as you catch the sharp tang of a man's musk as he relieves himself behind thick foliage; briefly, you wonder at the display as the man sways where he stands -- a smell of alcohol carrying as surely as unkempt flesh. As you listen, you believe you can understand most of the speech you hear, at least the thrust of it: one of the men has been complaining that all of the camp followers have gone.

Most of the figures you've glimpsed boast thick bear

You could Bewitch the guy taking a piss, and interrogate him to find out the specifics of what these people do. They could just be looters... After you're done interrogating him, put him to sleep and move on.

I don't really want to fight all of these guys. You could kill a few by stealth, yes, but wiping out all of them seems too risky and none of our spells are particularly suited to direct combat. A half-witch half-rogue isn't really good at combat in general.

Hmm, how far away can you target foodstuffs for a Slumber ritual? If you can hit their alcohol supply, you could just wait for them all to drink and pass out, then take your pick of the loot etc.

A mystery/horror quest about children uncovering the horrifying mysteries surrounding their small town.

---

Unbeknownst to many at the time, yesterday had been one of the most eventful days in quite some time for the city of Cattenom. All around town, incidents were taking place that would change the lives of everyone involved. Miniature tragedies, disconnected yet intertwined in unknowable ways.

But seriously, how long had he been standing there!?

Clive: “...If it was that easy, the rumor would have died a long time ago.”
Albert: “A fair point. It’s still worth trying, if only to gauge the response we get, but we shouldn’t expect-”
Clive: “Twin.”

He turns towards Lillian, not even bothering to let Albert finish.

Lillian: “Not my name, but yeah?”
Clive: “The other one graduated yesterday. What happened when he did?”
Lillian: “What d’ya mean?”

I say we go with Franklin, if only because we're the most experienced at keeping him on task.

Enid and Albert together are less likely to say the wrong thing and put Mrs. Chamberlain on edge.

This is keeping in mind that this universe we are investigating shouldn't have access to such technology as it is closed off from other universes for the most part. Magic, and biological experiments sure, but advanced robotics not likely. It's safe to assume that Happy is someone from the outside who brought this technology with him, or someone who gained it from someone from outside this universe. However, it should also be noted that his influence was seen not just in this universe, but within another worlds, the person we interrogated's world for example.

If there are any theories or questions to be brought up, please do so. Otherwise, I suggest we present some Recordings and evidence we gathered, if Ms. Algich would get them ready. There are some things I'd like to bring up from them.

Inner thoughts:Mm. That will not do. If Happy is amongst us that would merely eliminate our only leads on him.

Forgive my metaphor with this action. Simply executing them is an easy answer, but so is shooting you in order to further our own standing within the organization. The problem is it’s messy, leaves more holes, and there would likely be repercussions and loss of power. The purpose of investigation is to discover the truth. These are merely the most likely suspects. The key word being “suspects,” not “convicts.” Killing them and having done not only eliminates any possible leads we have on our main target, it creates more enemies, more than I believe this tribunal is willing to have. If you are going to give the order, then I hope that you are also willing to reap the guilt and repercussions of that order, I ask you to examine the consequences of killing each suspect, instead look at what we have to gain by Turing them to our side. There are people on this list that simply killing them would be a loss of a potentiality valuable asset to this tribunal. The cons outweigh the pros.

There is further evidence to suggest that the person who we assume to Happy may not even be aware they are the culprit. Rather, it is more a kind of split personality that puppeteers their actions. Conducting proper tests for this trait will save lives, time, and resources, and also it will be less of a headache for all of you.

*Threshold glances between the teacup and his two superiors.*

Inner Thoughts: Dervan didn't present any questions to you. Good. You still have the initiative and it seems Triumphant's comments have him on less steady footing. De-escalate the situation first, then you can press again. Start with Triumphant.

"Let's all take a moment to settle down."

"Mr. Triumphant, this won't be a productive meeting if you dismiss Mr. Glasshrauder's thoughts out of hand. It is understandable why you don't trust Mr. Glasshrauder, as he even said, he prefers it. That being said, if we truly want to meaningful progress between you two, then it'd be best if we left insults out of this discussion."

Inner Thoughts: Now work on Dervan. Try to dig out the underlying rationale of his 'dogma.' Remain direct, but adopt a softer approach.

"Thank you Mr. Glasshrauder for sharing us your view on things. It may be frustrating to point out truths that are apparent to you and not to other people, but exercising patience in this case will help us try to see where you're coming from."

*Threshold straightens his jacket before continuing.*

"What you just described with the tea cup seems like a very isolating experience. You and Mr. Triumphant were in a world where both of you were part of a greater community, following a grand narrative; And now, you are both alone."

Depends on how you do it. Without permission? They'll shoot missiles at them probably. I feel like you could just get permission from as many countries as you can get, and then shove all your scrubbers in those airspaces. Less efficient but it'll get the job done, right? Sharing blueprints might more easily persuade leaders to allow them in their airspaces, since the main problem is trust issues.
What about airspace above international waters? There's a lot of that!

The last thing I remember before the shuttle broke up was wondering how the hell we got into this situation. It should've been a simple matter of rendezvousing with our frigate and delivering the data we grabbed on Tetrapis's Project Hydra, but we were intercepted by a Tetrapisan destroyer. Now I'm stuck on this strange, uncontacted planet - Tukar - with who knows how many angry Tetrapisans and a local population that might or might not help me. Or worse, decide to use me for experiments.

I mentally command the nanites in my system to activate - maybe that brand new system I was given before the mission, QUEST, can help? It stands for "Quantum Universal Expert Synthtelligence - Tactical", and supposedly it should be able to guide me through this situation.

I briefly explain my situation to QUEST - I am the fourth and most junior member of Raven Squad. I'm the team's electronic warfare expert and drone controller. The other three members are Falken ("Falk"), the squad leader; Silur, our heavy weapons expert; and Arvin, the medic. I need to reunite with the rest of the team and alert Special Forces Command that we need rescue.

Before the crash I managed to keep hold of one of my drones, but the others are probably scattered over the countryside. Besides that, all I have to my name besides my powered armour is my basic stutter pistol and the air blade tech integrated into my armour - the former is a pulse laser and the latter is an energy projection from my armour's gloves that allows it to cut through most materials with ease. I've also got a signal-blanking poncho that should help me evade detection.

There it is! I see Arvin's signal. I tamp down my relief with caution. Could it be a trap? I glance at my Sensor Warning Display and double check my HUD's IFF. The scope's clear and the auto-recognition software passes its self-test, but that doesn't necessarily mean I'm safe. I work my way around the forest edge towards where I saw the light flashes come from, my pilfered scintillator ready.

A shape in the gloom resolves into the familiar form of Arvin. One down, 2 squad mates to go. As a Combat Medic, Arvin can make sure I don't meet a violent end, plus he should be very helpful in ensuring I remain in peak condition. Gene artifice can compensate for a lot, but our alterations are mostly about making us into peerless markspersons, not making us unkillable. I know Arvin can get grumpy about patching up the careless - especially since in a situation like this our medical supplies aren't unlimited.

Get down, you fool! I didn't dodge all those Tetra patrols just to see the only friendly face I've seen today get their head blown off! he hisses. When he speaks again, his tone softens. At least you look like you're in good health.

"Trust me, I don't intend to acquire any new holes." I slip behind a tree trunk, one eye on my Sensor Warning Display. "I know we don't have the time right now for a heart-to-heart, but we should at least compare notes before we get going."

These are the most urgent questions in my opinion. The drones are also important, but the big boy moving around is not expected and is important to know what it is doing.

About camping I would trust your radar and risk to get out of there. Is better to risk when you are not asleep. Have in mind that this can be also dangerous if you can't find a place to rest. Tiredness is a dangerous companion.

More specifically, an island of stability in the southeastern Wyld, where the edge of the map frays into chaotic liminal space between the cosmological poles of Heat and Life.

The air is so humid and warm, recovering after a hard workout is like trying to breathe chewing gum. Almost anything solid is either poisonous, actively being eaten by some sort of insect or fungus, or both - including your own clothes and skin.

There's a site of great geomantic power nearby, focal point maybe a few hundred yards underground. Up this close even mortals would be able to feel it. Probably worth checking out even if it's not the main reason you came. Tricky part is how to get down there, and dealing with whichever heroes or spirits have already laid claim.

Who are you? What's the plan?

At least seven successes, possibly as many as ten. Based on the look of his ceremonial regalia, that's the high priest of the People of the Bronze-Veiled Skull - a minor tribe from an island of stability in the southeastern Wyld. You know as much as anyone reasonably could about local geography, culture, and history, at least from an outsider's perspective.

You are 5,529 miles from Whitewall (plus or minus a couple hundred if too many of the adjacent jade obelisks failed during the fall of the Shogunate), inside... well, not the most sacred, their true oracle is said to be long-lost, but easily top five... places in their religion, listening to the setup before a sacrificial ritual. One or more live sapient prisoners are going to be shoved off that ledge, as payment to some divinity of the Underworld, in exchange for... something. The former celestial god Fou Tung, Annalist of Brigands’ Murders and Deaths, is mentioned as part of an invocation, but doesn't seem to be the actual intended final recipient of the offering? More like a witness or intercessor.

It's straightforward enough to ascend a rocky slope beside the rapids, but there's no convenient path further up alongside the river. You'd have to either dive in and swim against the current, or climb along the wall.

Humans up on the ledge (more of a bridge, really, now that you've gotten a better look at it) don't have line-of-sight to you from this angle, but conversation among the beastfolk trailed off, and most of them are now staring at you, with a few spears angled defensively.

As grand speeches were being made to the ultimately undeserving and unappreciative Exalts in the surface, there was a shadowed figure that headed down to meet the head of their spy network in the area and principal worshiper, before waving off the initial defensive reaction.

"I apologize for my friends' behavior. They haven't exactly seen anyone quite like you before. But, what exactly brings you out here? After all, it's not every day that someone as important as you winds up out on the fringes of reality, and I imagin rarer still on accident."

"I'm-- you know. It's just. Spider? And. Well. Pat--ches. Um. But. Cool cigar. That's great, this was a good talk." Patches slowly backs away, looking at the river-- gauging if she can make it before there's pursuit. "I'm, bye?" Patches just... Awkwardly shuffles towards the river, not really breaking into a run. It's incredibly unclear what her motivation is, if she had any, but spiders are presumably involved... I leave it to ST to provide any further insight.

You are a Bergman, a standard-bearer of your lord's castle. Or at least you were one.
Your last regal employer was caught in some less than loyal business, and you didn't survive the lordly break-up.
Now without a job, or a roof over over your head, you assess your future employment.

Wiggling your way out from the clutches of the vines, you quickly evade the giant's attempt of your recapture. Wrestling against the weakened shoots, you throw the tendril up towards the next rack. You fashion the tendril like a rope and proceed to climb to higher ground away from the giant's reach.

Now at higher ground away from the giant and the deadly plants, you finally get a good bearing of just who your pursuer is. However, a new presence blocks your line of vision. Though significantly smaller than the beast below, the woman before radiates an even more intimidating ambience. Coupled with this, the strange foodstuff in the cupboard, her horns, and her eyes piercing into your soul, you aren't just in a witch's den, you are facing down the actual witch herself!

Where did the blacksmith go? ...The witch was disguised as her, wasn't she! What's that thing below you, then?

Potential NSFW. Death may occur here.
This is the quest where you play as everyone but a certain character. We’ll call that special character ‘the catalyst’. Whether you help them out or work against them is up to you. No metagaming would be nice. But we’ll see how the demo rolls.

Some Rules:
• In a room full of people (e.g. a police station office, gang of thugs), you’ll only roleplay as two characters at a time. If there’s a mob (e.g. zombies, hive of alien bugs), you can roleplay them as one entity (e.g. pillage, march down the street, run away from the kaiju, etc.).
• The game may immediately end when the catalyst either dies or achieves its goal. Or perhaps something else that comes along to give the story a proper resolution.

Let’s begin.

Tark: Since Farah was in the neighborhood and near the crime scene, ask if she got any kind of alert from the station of a silent alarm being activated.

Farah: say you did not hear orders about coming here.

Tark: ponder if the silent alarm was activated, and if not, why, and if it was, why the police station didn't report it to a police officer in the area (Farah). Your not going to accuse Farah of ignoring calls yet, she's a good officer and your friend. Consider looking into this silent alarm incident while ordering Farah looks for clues.

Tark: mission briefing! Tell Farah she'll look around the store and the place where the huntoon was unconcious for clues of what could of happened and the killer while you'll check the the alarm system for any signs of tampering at the cash register and office as well as info on the employees here and security footage in the office. After that, you'll both check the break room where the dead body was found,

Farah: ask to switch roles, with you checking the security footage and alarm system.

Tark: Mention the silent alarm, give a briefing on the injuries and wounds. Specifically, let Farah know what mess awaits her if she plans on looking at the gollusk. If you have a time on when the silent alarm was pulled and when police were called and then arrived give that too.

Farah: Check if this store had anything such as cameras to record events. See if there's a clock-in system to keep track of which employees were in, you have to notify the families of who won't be coming home. It'd also might let you know who is a suspect, this could have been an employee who went postal one late night.

Tark: Confirm what Farah knows; affirm that while you don't have all the answers yet, there does seem to be evidence of at least two gunmen - that this wasn't a one-sided shooting.

Farah: Notice the location of the crime and ask why the silent alarm wasn't triggered. Did the cashier not have time to press it?

Tark: Explain that he checked it, and if the blinking is any indication, it was indeed pressed. Why the silent alarm didn't reach dispatch - coincidence or conspiracy - is just one mystery that needs answering. You've called in a tech specialist to take a look already.

Farah: Ask if you can take your own look at the crime scene. That investigator, if he's coming, would likely appreciate the extra legwork on your part.

Tark: order your people around. Call forensics, call balistics, search if there are security cameras, look for foot and hand prints, do that funny thing where you blink your four eyes one at a time, comb the general area. It's time to catch a criminal.

>Doesn't matter if they're still setting up, the band needs to know this situation now.
>Time is of the essence though, so get Virgil to deal with that while you make the booze run.
Lana: "Actually, someone should probably talk to the band and let them know about this too."

Virgil: "Maybe their roadie will help out too?"

Kaari: "Aw right. Sorry I forgot to ask for his help Lana."

Lana: "Long as you don't forget to put the beer away, it's fine."

Better not waste any more time on moving my mouth instead of my legs. I tape up a be back soon sign on the window, and to no surprise, hear a decent amount of yelling.

I'm going to be hauling quite the load back with me, so I take the bar's truck and head for the closest gas station. First thing I do when I get there is open up the ice box and load up ten bags of ice into the trunk. Then I head inside over to the freezers to start my lil 'beer run'.

???: "Hey there 'Socket'. What are you doing grabbing all those cases of beer?"

Lana: "Huh? Oh hey Luanne. Just making a beer run for work."

Luanne: "For...work? Don't you already sell and serve drinks there?"

Lana: "Some inept jerkwad left all our inventory sitting in the back. Now we've got no ice or cold drinks to serve. On top of hardly anyone showing up to work. Getting this to serve to hopefully last us till the other stuff is put away and cold."

Luanne: "Dang. Yeah that really sucks when you gotta pick up after your co-workers slack."

Lana: "Sucks, cause it's a big night. Concert on a Friday? Dude's on my shitlist now, along with the slackers not showing up to help."

I look back down as I place another case on the ground. She looks a little depressed.

Luanne: "Could be worse though. You could have walked into work and found uh..."

She stops and mumbles for a bit.

Lana: "Uh, a what?"

Luanne: "Horrible accident. Nothing looked right."

I scratch my head for a second. I'm not really sure what to do or say here? Whatever this 'accident' was she seems pretty bothered by it. I do need to get going here, but I don't wanna up and leave her suddenly.

I think we can leave those customers waiting for a bit longer, I doubt they can get more disgruntled then they already are.
Be the comforting presence Luanne need for a bit, you might not be able to hear the full story or help her out at the moment but lend a shoulder and an ear for a bit.
"You alright? You seem pretty shaken about about it."

Change the subject. If she's still down in the dumps, maybe she'll appreciate something cheery to talk about.

Gukri should attack Via. We'll either make her waste spells defending against her own minion, or force her grandsons to try and defend her. It's a good way to inflict pressure on them all.
>>
No. 1010828 ID: d052fd

Via basically skipped the whole last round, but also wasn't targeted by any attacks. Based on her role as a diviner, it's possible she's purely reactionary in combat. If that's the case, we might as well keep focusing on her minions and keep the number of active combatants on the opposing side as favorable as possible until everyone on the team is ready to face her alone.

Besides, focusing on all enemies at once isn't really optimal. Focus on weakened enemies now to prevent them from being able to contribute to the fight later. Gukri should give Vadico the smackies.
>>
No. 1010848 ID: 322af8

I'd argue that Gukri should try to do damage to Via's clothes. He's flanking her and she didn't seem to foresee his domination. Worse to worse he loses some armor of his own.

If anything, it'll be worthwhile to see what defenses, if any, Via has squirreled away.
