|| SOJOURN || NOTE: This will be a NSFW / 18+ only quest!

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.

D. I like donut's idea of taking a break before going anywhere maybe for an entire day. Maybe find a beach, or a lake and go skinny dipping or something

I am inclined to believe this, but with a twist on >>1020531 in attracting them by way of skinny dipping. Our keen senses should be enough to clue us in to any potential peepers and yellow certainly doesn't blend in to nature well.

No. 1020709 ID: 34dfce

That assumes that they would actually be attracted. Not everyone is into girls, or people outside their species (and the chance of them being a Bunne is pretty much zero).

They could potentially target us for leaving our belongings, but that would assume that they are a thief.

Basically, luring them via skinny dipping doesn't seem likely. I mean, we can do it still, if we want, but I think if we do it, it should be separate from luring the mysterious stranger.

Oh dear! I can’t believe I’m such a static-brain!

Oh dear, oh dear, almost there! You can’t miss this train! Hurry, Emma!

Aha! Here! Here’s my ticket! My luggage is safe, as you can see!

“Cuttin’ it close, ma’am. But, all looks well. Welcome aboard!”

Thank you! Finally…I made it!

The Sea Sharp Express! The finest luxury train to grace the continent! Full of wondrous and splendid activities for the refined robot, 5 gear meals, and a plethora of top-of-the-line resting facilities! Any bot with any taste would want to take a ride!

Which… makes it all the more unfortunate that I’m here more on work than pleasure. After all- I have this briefcase I really need to return to my latest patient. Mr. Earl Sparks.

Hmm…it would be more beneficial to her health to have her stay here. Perhaps I can inquire about any potential leads she may have! We can do ‘girl talk’ or the sort!

…not that I’m certain what that entails. I cannot recall if I’ve ever done such before. “Excuse me, but, as your current medical practitioner, I have to say, I think it would be beneficial if you were to stay overnight with me so that I can observe your state. Should there be any unexpected errors with your voicebox, I can be on hand to treat them.”

Ah, that seems to have taken her by surprise. “Oh, well then…I…guess so? I mean, if you really think so…”

Well, she has no real NEED for it, so maybe we can work- “It’s standard procedure, generally. I insist.”

Eh? That.

I did not intend to say that.

“Oh…well, sure!” Her response is good, but.

All you're trying to do is return his briefcase, and recover yours. Perfectly legitimate. Also admitting you've met the man doesn't contradict what you just said. Anything else can be held back via doctor-patient confidentiality, right?

So, basically, admit that you briefly met someone claiming to be Earl Sparks, and he seems to have accidentally swapped briefcases with you.
Describe him to her.

(also I wonder if her voicebox was damaged during some rough... interfacing. It would explain why she thinks she can prevent it, but also doesn't want to talk about it)
No. 1020701 ID: ca51e4

You have a picture of him right, maybe show that to her and tell her he claimed to be the gentlebot you were referring to. Ask if she would know who the individual is if not the bot he claimed to be. Admit you are very confused right now and wonder why someone would lie to their doctor about who they were.

Eight weeks ago, strange lights were reported along the coast some five hundred miles south of An-Teng- Anathema, or so the local Immaculates believe. Seven weeks ago, an oath-bound brotherhood was sent to “cut their teeth” so to speak, investigating the reported anima banner and sending word of their findings back to the Realm. Four weeks ago, they stopped reporting in, seeming to have disappeared like so many cargo ships and laborers before them. Two weeks ago, you were hired by an Immaculate Monk as bodyguards and worldly aids to travel to Ironport, the last known location of your younger cousins, with the intent to find out what happened to them, ensure stability of the realms interests in the region, and most importantly, bring in whatever anathema caused this mess, alive. About three hundred miles before reaching your destination however, a Lintha ship has been spotted, attempting to put out what seems to be a rather threatening amount of flames currently endangering hull, sail, and crew.
Post a character sheet, describe where you are physically in relation to the burning ship, the method of transportation that got you there, and provide a roll accompanying a declared action.

Lobelia can tell her right away that the quarantine is not necessary, but that medically speaking Ruban should be given time to convalesce and, especially if she is being hunted, the trial should be postponed.

Boar looks like some sort of native spirit, but not one you know off the top of your head- the other however is clearly a dryad or other sort of tree-based spirit.

The gull isn't as fast or as agile as you are, but your broom can only fly so high, giving it a way out- of course, it has it's own limits, and relying on the ocean currents means it's easily targets out above the open waters of the coast line.
Marisa however succeeds on her temperance roll (lucky 777) and hesitates, choosing to keep pace without roasting the thing just yet, in case she accidentally burns up the rations as well. Doesn't look good when you tell your dealer you accidentally blew up their stash. And indeed it seems perhaps the hand of fate itself is guiding Marisa, as the bird comes in off the coast line to roost on the Satrap's house

>It's only a moment later before she's makes the jump through the window, grabbing the rations and gliding in to see Lobelia expectantly holding a hand out for them, a half-mumbled "thank you" heard amongst the muttering of thaumaturgical wardings.
Marisa coughs and hands over the rations like that's what she was planning all along- though it's unlikely anyone present or who knows her would be fooled.

"So, uh, what's up Doc?"

Assuming we're going to share what we've learned so far, that's a request for information. Marisa will share with Posu and Lobelia what she learned on her totally-legal-as-an-agent-of-the-realm warrantless search of the warehouse (...an excuse which might actually be correct for once). Namely the paperwork that looks like the stirges are looking for the "rebels", evidence the bugfolk might have a sorcerer on staff, and the chakra orcids she confiscated and incinerated. ...no one's seen anyone with flowers on their necks or other symptoms, right?

While she's sharing, Marisa will pull her Eye of the Living Earth out of her saddle bag, plunk it down on a nearby table, and turn it on, checking back on the storehouse where she deposited a diamond and then swapping over to check on the diamond with Ribbons, who's currently checking up on a group of stirgefolk in the forest who seem to have a prisoner.

"Well, we will need to sort out the brewing civil war, the foreign military, and the situation of all these disappearances. The Morose are presently the biggest clue we have, but we know they aren't the direction we need to focus on since they've been here for a few days, and there are no records of them in the reports we have. I've already assumed direct executive and legislative control of the town, so I'll work on fixing the rift, and working out a repayment plan for the 5 years of deliberate tax fraud."

She glared directly at the bedridden satrap, raising her voice so that she could absolutely know who that was directed at before muttering under her breath.

"As for finding literal weapons of mass destruction, we also will need to deal with the deep set heresy that's been preached in this town for some time now. There's a lot of fires that need putting out and not a lot of time to get them done if we want to stay on the trail of the Anathema. So, I'll need to go have another chat with Buonaparte about the occupation of this town, and ending it permanently. I might need back up with dealing with the actual soldiers if they're dug in enough. I would prefer that Ribons was involved to explain the gravity of the situation to him, but there's more than enough plausible justification and outright illegal activity with this scrying to justify percussive interrogation."

It seems to me like using void medicine on non-void could easily poison them. (Plus, we were given it to give to injured void. Though, granted, this situation is due to the void activities.) Though
using just a little bit, both for safety and for keeping the majority for its intended recipients, (hopefully healing him enough to last), then using the slime potion when ready, might be a good compromise.

And/or, if the guy would last a while anyway, we could talk to the void about getting another healing potion?

The long-abandoned sector's landmarks rear into my field of view as I approach. It was abandoned not long after being set up but not too long enough for looters to have had the chance to pick everything clean. Salvage is profitable but that may not be what I'm here for. As long as I can score something valuable enough, whether that be a piece of forgotten equipment, valuable scrap, still working parts, electronics, or even mineral and ores light enough to carry back, it doesn't really matter.

That could be tested - for instance, one of you add up 1 to 20 while the other multiplies 27*11. If you both get answers in reasonable time (as opposed to e.g. twice as long as usual), it suggest's you're not simply dividing brainpower between you, and instead you have more of it available to you - or you're using it more efficiently, which works just as well. You can also check whether he's conscious while you're asleep (or unconscious, should that occur), and can formulate plans or e.g. time how long you were out (for tactical purposes, I guess).

Yeah, Unfortunately we won't be able to fully surprise them and kill them off before they notice out crossbowmen... Oh well, guess we'll just have to rain down arrows with less accuracy.
If we fight them at the entry and box them in and ensure they cannot leave we can still rain arrows if we surround their camp with bowmen and start firing waves of synchronized arrows down on the camp making their only options being hit by an arrow from the sky or run into a wall of soldiers and swords, this way they're playing by our terms, not theirs, giving us a severe advantage.

It's grim work, but it gets done. Whatever experience or skill the bandits have, they are not Tovaru. As their defensive line crumbles, the crossbows loose a rain of bolts from above, disrupting any attempt at cohesion, and the battle devolved into a desperate melee as Tovaru hack apart defenses, armor, and flesh with equal precision. That is to say, messily and painfully.

Let’s ignore Franklin’s weirdness. He’s weird, but his weirdness isn’t so weird it’ll collapse into itself and form a black hole of weird. Yet.

Don’t focus on Enid’s dad. Let her rest, and let her be a part of the investigation later. She has information we don’t.

I vote E: Investigate the school’s attendance records, roll calls and administrative files. If someone’s graduating, there HAS to be paperwork involved.

The group gathers together and Willamina props up her camera on a conveniently placed tripod nearby, setting the timer. She coordinates everyone in the room into different poses, having them strike provocative and interesting poses, something that would be a good memory for all tonight.

Willamina: Alright, we ready?

Franklin reclines across the table, resting his cheek on his hand, “Definitely!”

Mary clambers up off the floor and hops up on the table and strikes a pose, grinning.

Serah: Ready!

Serah gives the camera a huge grin and Franklin an even huger rub. He reaches up to put his arm on her back.

You will be able to unlock all the stars you can see, eventually, but your potential will not be as great as those more focused to one path. By the time you’re able to erase memories others on that path will be able to see into the future, something you may never be able to do.

You finally open your eyes and try to tell the captain about what you learned, but he’s nowhere to be seen. How long were you spacing out?

It’s probably not best to try telepathy on him anyway, that’s not really a good opener for someone you’ve just met. You’re not even sure it’d work on artificial life anyway, maybe you could test that. Actually you’re not even sure if the captain’s a robot or not, you don’t know what he is.

Maybe the hologram would be worth a shot. Worst thing that could happen is that it fails.

You focus on your core and channel the link inside you. For something you’re just relearning this feels very natural, it’s as simple as connecting strings.

Say hello and pardon for the intrusion, you were testing out your telepathy.

This isn't too bad, there's nothing keeping you from moving your body towards your destination while you're connected! Introduce yourself and maybe chat a bit with them. Do they know any interesting places on the station? Oh, you might want to get directions since the captain is no longer around to guide you.
No. 1020439 ID: 6e6730

seven of them.
I guess while you're in there, see if you can search their memory with your Search Memory power? If it pairs with telepathy this could be very potent.

You can probably omit details regarding the initial ‘breaking point’ but maybe you could talk about the events that followed and led to where you are now.
Also try not to think about the fact that this is probably being broadcast or recorded and that your old hive may see it.
No. 1020347 ID: 39c55a

Keep it together. Focus on what’s happened recently. Best way through is to just get it over and done with. No need to act or overact on this one, you’ve lived a heck of a day and change, and maybe some of that -is- worth sharing. Whatever Kark wanted that’s what he’ll have to get.

Get up and introduce your stingingly monosyllabic name: Mac. You’ve recently been forced to avail yourself of the city’s rogue support services. Speak of the questionable experiences you’ve had in your short time, from good (getting found, getting support from other rogues, a place to stay, essential advice, things to do) to bad (seeming lack of support options, how awkward it’s been to seek help without a hive, finding out about the supposedly depression-inducing mess that is rogue housing - so much so that some people would rather live underground, which you got to verify today - and your crazy supportive rogue support service personnel getting fired while taking care of you). You’ve been thrust into a situation where you’re scrabbling to find steady ground, have had had several scares - moments like trying to take a step down a precarious ladder and finding a rung missing - and even so you get the distinct feeling you’ve been lucky. There were so many things you just had no idea about until...

Make it feel like you were leading up to a question but then just pause and reiterate you had no idea what it was really like being a Rogue, and you still don’t, so for now you’d like to hear what other people who have been living this way for longer have to say and yield the microphone.
No. 1020357 ID: dfbac0

Yeah, mention how it seems like most of the rogues you've met have fostered a sense of community and are willing to help out a new rogue like you, at first we were generally skeptical of well... everything, but to our pleasant surprise you weren't taken advantage of despite being a new rogue that most would see as an easy mark.
Although, it seems as if this happened less of want but of need, rogues need to be supportive of each other because nobody else supports them, everything the government seems to do to help rogues seems to do nothing, and at times detriments rogues rather than helping them.
And yeah, end it with the fact that you're still new to this and your experiences are limited, and for all you know you may be incorrect and these are just your first impressions.
No. 1020374 ID: ce39da

You should probably put on your "Calm Mac" mask for this; yes, it's exhausting, but you can't really afford to break down here (or, worse, leave an opening for it to rear its head again).

These seem like good routes to take, yeah.

I motion to the captain that we're going in to sweep the room. I signal I'll take the left, and him and shorty take the right. It'll be harder to move while holding a charge, but I charge up and get ready to cast a Shatter Shot, should there be hostiles lurking around.

Entering the sick bay, Shorty takes point as he and the captain check the right side. I make my way over to the left where the handcuffed wolf is. Now that I can see them better, I notice they've got a muzzle keeping their mouth shut.

As I approach, I hear the cuffs and bed frame rattle a bit. They're trying to vocalize with me, but it's too muffled from the muzzle. Should I try to free them, or should I start opening cabinets and looking more?

Well honestly I started working out just to look a bit more tough and make all the street thugs we're drowning in think twice before jumping me. I guess it worked and I just kept leaning into it more and more. Eventually the boss here noticed that nobody ever caused trouble within 20 feet of me and offered me a job to stand around and look scary, rest is history.
No. 1018407 ID: 2de4fd

To be honest it was kind of a lucky accident. I was in a bar ordering a drink, and the bartender was pretty slow, I think it was his first week, so I hadn't got mine yet, so I was just standing near the bar when this guy starts yelling and throwing glasses at the poor bartender. I wasn't really thinking anything other than how annoyed I was a the guy for hassling someone for being inexperienced, so I told him the guy was doing his best and if he didn't like it he could leave, but if he tried to hurt him one more time I'd throw him out so hard he'd make a dent in the sidewalk. Well, I guess I deescalated things, cuz a bit later some of the staff tried to get me to deescalate something with two drunks making a scene. I had to explain to them I wasn't the bouncer, but I just kind of up and asked if they were hiring one and things went from there.

She looks around the room a bit.
Allinen: "Shoot, speaking of forgetting. I forgot to keep an eye on Syvaa. With 'tay in the car or whatever I dunno where she is."

Come to think of it, I don't think I've really seen or met them today either?
Lana: "Please don't tell me there's some kind situation-"

Allinen: "Oh no don't worry! I just like to make sure we're altogether, ya know. Just in case. I should get up and look around for her though."

The bar is pretty crowded looking still. I feel like I should help Allinen look for Syvaa, but at the same time I wanna be able to help keep watch up front in case any drunk ass wants to start shit. Could go up and watch cams for both, but then I'm not down here for a fast response.

There are benefits to mixing block and dodge strategies; if your character has block remaining but manages to dodge an attack that would otherwise reduce said block, that block turns into Combo Tokens, which can be used to block attacks on the next turn or for stronger attacks.

Ah, the so-called war hero Silver has taken under wing is serving as her outer guard today. He doesn’t like me despite my persona. Or perhaps because of it. He’s smart enough not to show it too obviously at least, and he’s not important enough to devote any real effort to convincing otherwise.

“Preceptor Brass.” He says as I approach. He doesn’t even grace me with a bow. “Preceptor Silver has ordered that she isn’t to be disturbed.”

“I just need to speak to her for a moment. I’m afraid it’s quite urgent.” He doesn’t move a muscle.

“She said she isn’t to be disturbed.” He repeats, slower.

How best to get past him? I can barge in, I’m sure. He wouldn’t be stupid enough to physically bar me, but if I interrupt Silver while she’s spinning a web around Riksen I could ruin or set back her plans. She’d forgive me eventually, but it would cast a certain pallor on our following conversation. Or if I wait, she may find it strange considering the circumstances. I do not think we are in immediate danger, but it is far more important than any foreign ambassador.

Whatever I do it must be under the guise of I’ve cultivated, of course. Genial, soft, and non-confrontational.

Ask how long she will be, if this is unacceptable stress that this is an important matter that needs to be seen to.

"How long will this be, and how many lives will my interruption cost?

... as I said, this is important."

Helps that this statement is true, and if Silver is really up to some shit, it gives leeway for her to push back. Use your own judgement on how fanatical her guards are and how little common lives matter, though this group of miscreants seems like it can slash a bit higher up on the ladder, if you don't handle it.

... and on that note, you seemed less concerned than us about their military prowess. Can you elaborate on your own? With things like your Damnation in the picture (FM (fukkin magic) to us, buddy) we don't actually know what your faction can do. Some elaboration could be very reassuring. Come the Apocalypse, what could you do you do to wipe these fuckers out, if you really had to?

Not panicking, of course. Just a friendly threat/warning, like you're used to~

If you absolutely must talk Silver, then entering right away would be the best choice.

If not, we can just rely the message about the rebels to this Martinet and let him inform her for us. Then we can focus on other things.
