Afterwards, you make your way back up onto the central platform and set your bag down to grab your tools -- there are several large gnarled branches stuffed inside the enchanted space. C.C. whuffs nearby, apparently delighted at your discovery of these treasures. Sifting past the branches for now you withdraw your rope, grappling hook and bedroll before assessing the platform. At its corners are two iron rungs set into the stone, large enough to thread; with this, your own strength and C.C. providing additional leverage, it ought to do the trick.

Laying out your bedroll to cushion against the edge of the ledge that you might better muffle the draw of the cage, you alert Conrad before giving a deft toss of the grappling hook -- having little trouble landing it against the edge of the cage itself. Conrad draws up the slack and helps further anchor and secure it before you get to work with C.C. (who rather enjoys the ensuing 'tug of war' you find.)

Sure enough, the chain above provides slack enough to draw the prisoner to the platform as the metal base presses into the cushion of your bedroll. Clever thinking, that. Holding it steady, with your help Conrad is able to squeeze his way free from the cage -- clearly meant to hold those of the realms of man, rather than a retavii prisoner.

"My thanks to you." He offers gladly as you disengage and retrieve your grappling hook and rope before stowing them in your bag once more; as you rifle, you think to draw free the silk fabric you'd acquired. Straightening then, you find you fairly well tower over Conrad and briefly reflect that Geoffrey is fairly tall himself. (Among the realms of man, some may consider your kind, the buune, 'Amazonian'.)

"To cover." You explain as you hold the fabric out, closing your eyes respectfully that he may at least nominally cover his loins.

A, but take it slow to give Conrad some time to eat up. We have 15 trail rations, and presumably some water to go with it. Let's get Conrad some munchies from the Mag Bag. That's it's name now. Mag Bag.

As tempting as it is to give Conrad some silk to cover himself with, that stuff is expensive. Sorry, buddy.

Maybe Geoff has an extra pair of shorts?

Lets investigate that guard room. Might give us a better idea what to expect around here too. In the short term, hand him one (1) baked goods and one (1) dagger from your stock. And some water, sure.

I think it's time to explain that we'd like to remain on neutral-at-worst terms with the owners; we can check out the gaoler's room for Conrad's stuff, mug them for it even, but no killing. If your companions disapprove, you may have to tell them more of your quest. If Conrad can't abide this, he's on his own.

Life is dull.
There’s no other way around it.
You’ve worked hard - you’ve contributed to society. But at the end of the day, all you come back to is that same old TV in your livingroom.

An acrid scent lingers in your hovel. You’d say its the same sight you’ve known for years now, but the truth is that the bits of plaster in the back seem to be peeling off more and more every day.

At least you still had your television set.

You had set the damn thing up a while back - a radio transceiver, typically made for logistical workers hauling goods over long distances. Jury-rigging a spare set to act as a television antennae was difficult, but it was better than nothing.
Still, the microphone dangled off the side, the cord twisting and untwisting as you try to navigate to the mildly interesting soap opera you caught the tail-end of last night.
Turning the knob, a picture starts to form, blanketed under a layer of static. For once, it doesn’t sound like a pre-recorded show.

Oh I should have specified not to open it, apparently.
Most likely, someone had the same thought that they couldn't be rescued with it in their home, and sent it to someone at random. Try not to touch anything with your bare hands. Hold the note up to the camera please, I want to get a better look at it.

Then... hmm, reporting it immediately seems like the wisest thing to do. The only other option is to hot potato it along, and I for one do not approve of making this someone else's problem.

I see three options: flush it, hide it or cooperate with the police.
You can discard the pills slowly with a functional toilet, that way there will be no evidence of illegal contraband in your possession. This does not solve any possible record of the package destination, so the police or the drug dealers can still conclude you received it depending on factors outside your control.
Hiding it will be the ideal solution in case the drug dealers later demand their contraband back. If you fear organized crime more than the government this is the best you can do. I don't know why the rescue team would search your house extensively, but if that is a concern dig a hole and bury this box.
Cooperation with the police is only risky because of their level of corruption. I can't really judge this because I'm not familiar with the political circumstances, so I can only take your word that they would blame you to help the true culprit. If that wasn't a concern this would be the best option: not only you don't have to take risks maintaining a secret you wouldn't be a great target for revenge from the criminals because "you just did what you had to" and "don't know anything".

I think reporting it, preferably in a way that leaves a paper trail, remains Davey's best bet.

Set up the camera and investigate the jungle
No. 1073188 ID: e51896

On second thought, that's a good point. Might be able to help the bois in the lab if they got more info.

Changing my vote to A, and bring a flashlight so that even if there is a complication and we get caught, we'll still be able to gather information. and we can use another drone as a distraction to get away if we get caught

Don't worry about being a little reckless and accidentally make some noises, we already know that whatever is in there cannot hear us, as the wheeled drone made a lot of loud noises, but was left undisturbed. With that in mind, We can probably even run in and out as we gather info so our stay in the cave isn't long to lower chance of being caught instead of moving slowly to not make noise.

also, with the reference to the footage we got from the drone, we know where to go to reach the walls, and the lumps, or anything else that is interesting that the wheeled drone found but couldn't make out. maybe only use your flashlight when you reach those areas as those probably have the most valuable info.

yeah, set up camera too towards the reef

>smoke delicious?
Well, you know that the Kellpos have acid in their throat sacs, right? And the scientists back home have discovered that in small amounts Kaiju acid is a delicious and addictive condiment for food. So maybe that green smoke is the Kellpo's acid evaporating from the heat of the volcano and turning into steam? That could be why it smells good?


Would shrinking help reduce our chances of being caught?
No. 1073270 ID: e51896

It might, but I think travel might take longer if we shrink

but maybe that won't be much of an issue if we ride on our KAIJU-CAMO DRONE in the cave while small to where the wheeled drone spotted something

You are now Zenith Groundfull.

You take a deep breath. Now that you’ve properly woken up, the world is a little bit clearer. Cooper leaves the bathroom to get dressed, and you head to your closet, now filled with inspiration for an outfit. You put a different corset on and decide on a pair of black leggings, a smooth red skirt, and a simple white button-up. As you’re putting on your gloves, Pawsteps patter from behind you, signaling the arrival of your partner.

“Wow, sure you want to look this good for a simple little investigation?” You turn to see their outfit, a cropped racerback tank top under an unbuttoned floral shirt with a pair of black jean shorts, and to bring it all together, a fake gold bangle. Their hair is pushed back into a curly mullet and held in place with a healthy amount of gel.

“Ooh, looking great sweetheart! Love the hair!” You chirp. While their flat bangs were fun to play with, the fluffy curls had to show themselves eventually.

They place your sunhat firmly on your head, then look in the wall mirror to fully admire you. You take their hand and strike a pose. You two look great. “Thank you sweetbeak. You look amazing too, but as much as I’d like to fawn over your skirt, we’ve got work to do.”

“Of course. A little behind schedule, but we should be fine.” You head into your office once again, now completely ready to take the day by storm.

>Alright, so, take a closer look at the folder. Who's involved, who are their closest family members, who lives next door? And call the client to tell him you're taking the case.

You grab the folder and scan its contents. Inside, there’s a letter from the commissioner, Harvey Aguire, in the form of a questionnaire. Additionally, there’s a photo. A burly, male polar bear next to a much shorter female badger. The badger is ecstatic, and despite the

Who or what is the subject of investigation?
Bethany Agguire, my wife of 25 years.

Please give a short description of the situation.
I have reason to believe she’s been having sex with other people behind my back. She’s been actin real shifty lately and the other day, I found a red leather mask. I didn’t know what it was for at first, until I remembered something my buddy Randy said bout some racy kinky thing. I hear that you two are more familiar with situations like this and how you know how to keep your mouth shut. Call me to arrange a meeting.

“Pretty cut and dry, isn’t it? I swear, so many of these problems could be solved if they just talked to each other.” Cooper states.

“Hmm, keep in mind that keeping something from your husband in this day and age is dangerous. Especially a hardworking blue collar.” You look at the photo in a bit of awe. This badger must be pretty short, given that she’s the size of his arm. They’ve lasted 25 years, you can only imagine what kind of things her c--

You go over to the landline and put the phone to your head, then punch in the phone number. The line drones for a moment.


“Hello?” A gruff voice answers the call, so deep that it’s hard to make out. Any thought of Bethany being tiny is replaced by the thought of Harvey being massive. ”Hello?!” they boom, losing patience.

You’re startled for a moment, then you respond. “Yes! Hello! Good afternoon. Am I.. Is this the Agguire Residence?” It’s not like you to be intimidated, but you’re more flustered than anything.

The deep voice on the other line clears its throat, then speaks in a much softer voice. “Yes, terribly sorry if I spooked you. You’ve got the right line. I take it this is Detective Groundfull?”

“That must make you Harvey. I’ve decided to take your case.” You say. You’re relieved to hear a more welcoming tone, you’re not sure if Cooper could take this guy in a fight.

“Oh, well thank you. You’re calling about the meeting, right? I’m available for the next few hours, I took a sick day. How about you meet me at my home?” His composure teeters on breaking with every word. There’s a lot of confusion and a lot of fear. This must be a very delicate situation for Harvey and he should be treated accordingly.

“Sir with all due respect, That’s a horrible idea.” You state. Your tactfulness is unmatched.

A. Show no fear, hold your ground. Talking your way through situations like this is what you know best. Best way to do this I think is to make his soldiers realize how much of a baby he is to not take him seriously enough by showing we don't take him seriously, and tell him to just leave

Right now, I don't think he's willing to fight us and risk his soldiers lives. Call his bluff and tell him when he's ready to grow up and stop throwing a tantrum, you'll take him a bit more seriously and lend him some goblins. And it's not just you that can't take him seriously, because right now, this attitude he's showing is exactly why some of his soldiers like his archer hasn't been taking him serious enough to follow his orders, and instead follow their own orders thinking their decisions are better than his. It makes you wonder really who the leader of his group really is and who really should be leader as >>1073005 pointed out

>>1073264 Just to be clear part of the point of the last post was to show how the insubordination differs. Our supposed commander stuck to the letter of the orders, while ignoring the intent so he at least was not completely defying us. Like a good disciplined warrior he owned his failure and accepted the consequences. While archer here seems to believe he can unapologetically defy his own superior without consequence. Plus he definitely did not stay non-lethal. So key differences. His troops probably believe they can go without consequence even if caught so it's easy to see why the town wants them to sod off. Should RR survive that's the lesson we give. Should the archer off him well, "So it seems whoever wants to lead can seize power here. Whoever here believes they deserve command just has to kill whoever is in charge." Have a gobbo kill the pyro in the chaos.

(Steamy hand-holding action.)

Do you know by any chance why the last name "Smith" is so common?

Well you see in wars, in the loser side, almost all able body men die or are executed. But the smiths, you see, they are useful. After all, swords, armor and forks still need to be forged.

So in "interesting" times, smiths tend to spend their days in front of a roaring fire with the occasional knocking announcing a new management. And the short drop and a sudden stop of all acquaintances from the previous one.

Strike. Temper. Draw.
Day in, day out.
Strike. Temper. Draw.

But sometimes a smith may find himself in the field, and he may find himself called to action. To do the right thing.

Curious, the life of a Smith.

It is, but...
Selfishness isn't an inherently bad thing, it depends on circumstance. There are times when you need to be selfish, it's how you ensure the things you need are taken care of.

I'd say surviving and recovering from a near-death experience, definitively falls within acceptable circumstances for selfishness

Sometimes, you need to be a burden, too, and there's no shame in that, either. Society, as a concept, exists for that specific purpose: to lighten the weight of hardship both collectively, and from those it weighs on most.

What's the point of having friends, or just decent people, if they won't help you move a couch every now and again?

The Interstellar Transit Authority currently holds the planet under martial law. The planet has seen a turbulent past century, guerilla fighters have been holding it hard and there has been no progress in taking hold.

Mercenary companies have been brought in to step in as a force multiplier, but they are beholden to no one but whoever pays the most.

Corporate entities have also begun to set their eyes on the planet below.

The Mech is outfitted with the Ryu arms, which are not a straight upgrade but more of a sidegrade. The August and Ryu are comparable but ultimately are more cases of speed and armor, the Ryu is lighter but boasts better handling for weaponry, while the August is slightly slower but more defensible.

Just run forwards? Hitting yer behind while it's moving is tough. Juke randomly and she'd have to get lucky to get ya on the side too. Just be ready if she goes frontal.

Call her out on her BS of "Nothing but ourselves" before immediately taking advantage of her parasignia's powers for stealth, and see if she agrees wnough to step out into the open for a more honest fight. She probably won't, but it's worth trying at least.

As for how to cover every angle, try moving around and incorporating spins into your movements. Something like Baguazhang if you're familiar with that form of martial arts. This won't prevent her from being able to land an attack, but it raises your odds of her attacking from an easier to block angle.

As for the flowers, maybe those are all she can see while vanished as she currently is, and can judge loosely where you are based on which flowers are disturbed? Try tossing some clothing or equipment (nothing that she can use against you though) nearby, and see if that throws off her reading of your location.

>"This is the first time someone has pushed me to this extent since I gained this power."
Hm. She won't have trained this on live people before, at least.

>How am I going to cover every angle of attack?
If her control remains partially subconscious... look or feel for tells. Maybe swaying flowers from otherwise invisible air currents to indicate she's about to close in through whatever illusory effect - or a portal's opened. You could pretend not to see or sense this and counter or grab her the moment she strikes. Options are headshots, the exposed chest, wounded arm or calf, or her jetpack if you can fuck that one up. Keep in mind she might still be flying - no guarantee she'll attack you from angles a ground-based sparring opponent might.

If there are no tells, try to become a hard target in general until her methods of attack is revealed. Apply the principles of your Blood Circle training as if you were fighting a phantom foe, but toss in random directional changes, circling, backtracking to lessen her invisibility/portaling/home field advantage.

Note that she may attack your side, as your wound probably provides a handy weak point. If she can come from nowhere to stun you with pain, or worsen the damage, that'd seem like her go-to play. If that's true - well, you know where a part of her will be.

Spar rules are 'till yield or KO, yes?

She went invisible? Either she portaled out using her parasignia or she has Nickel's pseudosignia. Hmm, yeah, I could see the two of them as friends.
Well, if your 'signias are fair play in this fight, you still have that freezing pseudosignia.

To cover all angles you can plan to duck and sweep. It's a wide attack that can be adjusted to hit any direction.

The necromancer talk certainly disturbs me, yet even worse is that... these people, this city, the country of Seftacra, they...
I think I'm going to be sick. My sight gets blurry with tears.
You wouldn't understand, any of you, but...
Dragons *cannot* be harmed. It's fundamental in almost every culture, fundamental maybe even in the functions of this entire world, that dragons are one of the few species considered sacred and untouchable by ANY mortal affairs! After all the secrets they shared with us, after all the infrastructure they helped to build, after all the technological advancements they told us we could and helped us make, purely out of their own kindness, and this is how Seftacra and Aicet repaid them!?

Get back up. Damn you Arthur, focus!
And focus I do.

These necromancers also seem to be a problem. Anything occult is serious. Things like this can tear down any economy, no matter how strong it is. There's one job opportunity at least, and that would be helping the Aicet military in defending the city.
Back to the task at hand.

The... JOB BOARD is a physical object, something we'll have to find out here in the streets.
I say that we make things simple now. We find this JOB BOARD, gloss over the opportunities, and locate the Grander Brothers establishment. Then, the long day will be over at last.

Uuugh, maybe I can ask Dolly if he’s in today. That way I can wait for a perfect moment to miss him.

Marlene: I’ll text Dolly about it, and I can just meet her outside the studio! There are other scripts good enough for that $100 for now. She can answer me with ways to contact the author.

Emmylou: Is withholding a script bad?

Marlene: Not really. But if I try to pass it off as my own--sure. Obviously.

Marlene: Scripts are thrown out all the time in droves. Maybe Osman made copies and submitted to Bacchus and all the other studios. Perhaps they’ll all reject it; perhaps Bacchus will snag it first.

I consult the laptop to figure out whether Osman Neiro is a pseudonym of some kind. Some names show up but sometimes it’s not even the right name--such as Nero Osmand. It’s just a... peculiar name. Nothing else has been published in particular. No books or movies show up (aside from facebook accounts of normal people, I guess?) none of them say ‘screenwriter’.

Marlene: Why is it hard to just find who you’re looking for on the internet?

Marlene: I suppose my best option is to get in touch with Dolly then.

Emmylou: Yeah! Get that script to the big screen! I’m glad to witness the beginning of an Oscar-winning film.

Marlene: Heh, if only.

There’s only a few minutes left on Emm’s watch before she’s back to her job. I suppose I have the choice whether to call Dolly and head to Silenus or go on my normal routine to visit the Mnemonic Gaps first.

Could notify Dolly that one of the scripts looks to be missing a few pages and drop the name of it and the author. Maybe it's as simple as someone having accidentally left the rest of it in a filing cabinet or something.

But, the meat is sour. It is from an emergency stash. One that I would only use as a last resort.
And this is definitely a last resort. Parts of me are still splattered all over the place. Another tick and I've have become one of the feral lost ones.

It's gross. A brain from some forgotten place. A building where those who were deemed unfit for society were kept. Still, with half of my own head blown off I don't really have much of a choice, do I?

“Hello, little fellas, are you perchance children?” the lizardman politely turns toward Germ and Weasel.

“Um, we are 8, but we are grown ups.” Germ says.

“Kobolds age fast.” Weasel adds.

“Ah. Still, I believe that’s good enough.” Jekesson says, nodding. Immediately, a counter appears above the field, showing Jekesson’s defense points rising by 1500.
“Aw, what?” Strawberi leans over the table in surprise.

“Ah, yes. That’s the Faithful Father’s special effect,” Ceridwen explains, “For every underage character on his side of the field, Jekesson gains 500 points and will defend them from any attack or effect should they be targeted, at the expense of losing 1000 attack points whenever he is attacking an underage enemy character.”

“Preposterous. They are not underage!” Strawberi lifts herself up and motions at the kobold couple.

Wiki and previous threads: https://questden.org/wiki/Scion_of_the_Old_Blood

“Nearly all of the early European settlements circulated stories of a being known as "The Dark Man" that lived in the primordial woods beyond the settlements' borders. Deeply religious and at the same time almost hysterically superstitious, clinging precariously to the edges of an unexplored and therefore terrifying continent, it was only natural for people in those times to project their collective fears onto the unknown. For the predominantly fundamentalist Protestant sects that first colonized the New World, these projections typically were embodiments of the Christian concept of the Devil, while the native population used much baroque names as ‘The Lurker At The Threshold’ ,’The Watcher Beyond The Stars’ or even ‘The Bleeding Eye of The Night’“ – Local Myths of the Miskaton River, ‘The man on the threshold’, page 36.
