In the land of Enur, the runes of magic control all that occurs! But one day, something caused these runes to fall down from the heavens onto the surface of the world! Now the spirits(That's you) are tasked with guiding a champion on their quest to recover these runes before the world falls into chaos!

Choose a race and gender!

Human: A human! The most abundant race in the land. Have a natural affinity boost with all elements of magic!

Kin: This animal-like race sports animalistic features such as tails ears claws and fangs! They naturally have sharper instincts and are quicker!

Gilland: Born with gills and webbed hands and feet, this race is the master of water and sea! The best swimmers, with the ability to breath underwater!

Marie has always been pretty mean to pretty much everybody! But she seems to especially hate ME! I have no clue why.

>Ha! Her boobs are smaller. Looks like someone is compensating.

I... Wonder if that could be it!!!

>Ask where Alto is, if she doesn't answer, leave.

Maya: "I don't want to deal with this, Marie. Do you know where Alto is?"

Marie: "What? You mean you- You don't KNOW? You don't REMEMBER?? Or are you just... I don't know... In DENIAL??"

Maya: "...What are you talking about?"

Marie: "HAHAHA! Ughh, this is just pathetic! You know, you should really go and see father at once! I'm sure he'd love you tell you all about Alto. This is far worse than the Sumpter thing! Have you heard from Lord Byron since then, by the way? Or did your CHARM not win him over?"

Okay. Looking at your sister again, I can glean two, maybe three things from her? Feel free to correct me or use some of this to insult her.
Her tits are obviously smaller, easy enough to point out, but not enough.
You nails aren't painted like hers, so I assume you're generally better with magic than her since when you fuck with magic it's usually a bitch to repaint your nails, right? You're a real prodigy I bet.
She's wearing mascara, eye make up, whatever you call it. She's probably also wears perfume and a ton of other cosmetic things, which means she might be vain. That could be a good avenue for insults against her person.

>Overall: You're prettier, have more magic potential, younger, and could probably hands down kick her flee ridden ass all the way from here to sundown

I reach father's chamber, and step inside... I'm afraid. Afraid of what he might-

Duke Corson Du Bois: "MAYA."

But at least I had Alto. Strong and brave. Determined. But too kind. Just like his mother. Just like you..."

He's... tearing up. I've never... I didn't even know my father COULD cry! Oh no! Alto...

>CHARM win him over?
Lord Byron would be the last thing on your mind. As should trading barbs with this lovely (or not-so-lovely) familial specimen. From the way she is acting it seems your brother should still be alive. She'd no doubt have called you something far worse if she knew you'd in fact been his end, so perhaps you can relax there.

What, however, might be so bad...?

Hm. Maybe the fire caused the mine's collapse? That would be unfortunate for the industry and could cost your family dearly - rather than solve a negotiating problem you've caused greater complications to the local industry. Still... overall, it might be a smaller price to pay.

Your actions rescued several people and stopped an ongoing infestation from growing far, far worse than it could have. You have your witnesses - the guards rescued - to verify that, assuming any of them were brought back.

C your father. Might as well rip the bandaid here and act 'responsibly'. Steel yourself, and wave off your sister's barbs.

No. 1032691 ID: 9a2966

Ah. Hm.

D - Restore your father's hope

Question him - he should've heard most of the tale already from the guards.

Was... was Alto not recovered? The last thing you recall hearing when you set those webs ablaze to kill the giant spiders was him yelling in pain in the distance, further down the beasts' den. You tried to reach him, but one of the guards held you back and then... the mine collapsed? You think. Your memory fuzzes out at that point.

But those mines go deep and there must have been tunnels beneath the infested area, which those gigantified pests and the local Hurons must have traversed - certainly the Hurons that had been captured wouldn't have come through the main entrance.

Could it not be possible Alto tore his way free and fled deeper into the mountains, avoiding the fire and collapse? He would've fought tooth and nail to survive, you know that much. You volunteer to return and look - certainly you can't just leave it like this. Even if you have to head out on your own!

(We do know there must be some deeper level here - the rune of magic that fell and caused the growth of the spiders must be down there somewhere, and you did not have the opportunity to recover it, what with, uh, clearing out the infestation and the mine's collapse. Still, unless someone else found the rune and brought it elsewhere, your work there was left undone. This might be a solid reason for a quick return!)

After getting the truth of Alto's situation from your father and making your declaration (assuming the truth is as we think), you can probably safely tell your father the whole fanciful tale as truthfully as you'd care to.

>A word of warning, though
Perhaps leave out our role in your story for now and the role of the fallen runes. If people of ill motivation knew they might start a collection effort of their own, so to speak.

>Eyebrows
Well, the eyebrows go in the family, at least.

We don't know what they've told him. I would go with the truth, A.
And the truth is that you don't know exactly what happened besides that Alto went alone to look for the guard that was accompanying you, went to the village only found one guard that escorted you to the mines, and in there you found giant spiders, a few survivors and even more spiders. You tried to burn then to make your escape with the few people you rescued... but you heard screams from deeper in the mines... After that, something hit your head and passed out. You woke up here.

Ask him what happened to your brother.
>>
No. 1032694 ID: 6fa841

Ah crap.

A). Make sure to specify that there were a group of spiders capable of shooting webs from a really sizeable distance and that in fact it did even catch our guard companion's sword.

It was us or them at that moment. And we wanted to secure future safety while dealing with a threat. In hindsight there are many things that could have been handled differently but otherwise that's what seemed best at the moment.

You know, I felt guilt at pushing you towards a chaotic course of action that led to drastic consequences, which may range between your brother being oxygen-deprived into a coma to an entire cave of hostages burning to death in a firestorm similar to white phosphorous.

But Screw.
This.
Asshole.

He doesn't care. About the civilians in that mine. About the minorities being persecuted and abused in addition to their sorry lot as underpaid workers. About the fate worse than slaughter that they were assigned to by your gods, all for the mere crime of existing as they were.
His lineage?! You're alive! Your sister is alive! What are you, chopped liver? And how can he still insult your brother for having the capacity to empathize with his servants?!

No. 1032697 ID: 3466cb

A, C.

It seems they hadn't recovered Alto, or what's left of him, if your father has only the accounts of the guardsmen from the incident. If so, your brother's fate is unknown to everyone present. Dead or alive, you must take responsibility. Be fully truthful to everything that occurred, but though we share the blame, do not mention us; you will seem of unsound mind and your father might detain you. Apologise for the rash approach to your combat with the spiders, though it was your first and guided really by our own irresponsible, ill-considered counsel. Ask your Father of what was said by the others present on that day, and whether Alto or his corpse were recovered. If your brother is still in those mines, you must find and recover him, to be returned to your family for a happy reunion or the proper dignity of a funeral. And if he is not, you must return to the mountain regardless. Subdue the cause of this calamity, most surely beneath the mountain deep; hunt down the Rune.

Thinking it better: try to avoid excuses.

You were attacked by something. Alto went to rescue the guard and the horse. You didn't want to let your brother alone and run for him. Found the town and went to ask for him, but there were no guards. You heard there was something dangerous in the mines and that the guards were there. You went with one lagging guard to see if that danger was the same that attacked your carriage and to search for Alto. Found that the danger were horse-sized spiders and lots of dead guards. The spiders were very dangerous. You put in use a new spell you never have tried before... it was a flame and air spell. You killed the spider, it was very efective. You found cocoons of spiders with people inside, you helped them but Alto wasn't with them. You went deeper to find Alto but there were much more spiders. You were reckless and pressed on using the new spell, but you (we) understimated how dangerous was the spell and how flamable were the spider silk. The fire spreaded and you had to flee, but you heard voices deeper in the cave. You wanted to go to see if Alto was there, but a guard stoped you because you were trying to get in the wildfire. A pilar fall onto you both and the next thing you remember is waking up here.

I tell my father everything that happened in the Edge Mountains. I'm careful not to mention the voices in my head... I make no excuses for my actions. I do however, mention specifically that these were GIANT spiders!

Corson: "So it's true then... Maya, would you ever use fire magic like that?? You should KNOW how dangerous magic can be!! It's use is OUTLAWED in most places without a proper license! You had your own private magics tutor! You should KNOW this!"

I decide it would be best not to mention that I usually fell asleep during magic class.

Corson: "Maya. I understand you were in a bad situation... But you've done something unforgivable. The other men within that cave were officials from the Uwashan Empire. Tensions between us were already high, but now? Well... I must do what I can do make amends."

A: Uwashan Plains: The closest to home, a young male Uwashan noble wants to host Maya. Apparantly he has a great interest in Kin girls. It is well known that the Uwashan Empire has been dealing with guerrilla attacks from a band of "Rebels" who claim to fight for Uwasha's freedom...

B: Eyaran Desert: A retired Eyaran general lives here in the capital of the Eyaran Sultanate! He owes Duke Corson a favor. Maya would be sent to stay with him in his estate within the city. However, one should know that the Eyarans are waging war against the Uwashan Empire! Though the city is far removed from this, the consequences may still be seen...

C: Filland Swamps: An old friend of Duke Corson lives here. She too was banished long ago for crimes unknown, and now spends his days hunting and fishing in the swampland... Supposedly..! Maya would be sent to live with him in his meagre estate. The people of Filland are enthralled by the Uwashan Empire, and some say they wish for freedom...

D: Koraban Islands: An old magician friend of Duke Corson lives on one of these islands in tropical retirement! Maya would be sent to stay with him in his estate. Be warned however, as the political climate of Koraban is rocky! As the great Uwashan Empire is at odds with the Eyaran Sultanate...

Welp. No idea what actually happened but Alto bleeding all over the place probably means it wasn't us... at least directly.

In terms of potential development for magic, Koraban Islands has some viability due to a veteran magician residing there. However in terms of affinities and overall safety, the Desert seems better, plus you could possibly do like a cool wind sand attack. Ain't that fun and non-lethal? Voting for B).

I say D). Not knowing how to fight and reling in unreliable magic, Maya should learn to control it's magic. Maybe we can convince the magician to teach. (Perhaps in B) we can convince the general to learn how to fight with swords?)

Also, for future reference. The three rules of piromancy are:
- Never start a fire you can't put out.
- Check twice your suroundings, so fire doesn't get out of control.
- Shave yourself. No aesthetic is more important than not burning.

>The other men within that cave were officials from the Uwashan Empire
Okay, this is definitely a setup. The guard captain died from bludgeoning damage. The spiders didn't have that affinity. And you trust your guard to not murder people on impulse. Occam's razor says the Uwashans were setting up raids and ambushes in the area, exploiting the spiders as some sort of experiment or cultivation, and you just stopped their long-term plans. Which they're extremely pissed off about, since they haven't denied the existence of their out-of-place officials in a backwater mine.

Get intel from Alto. Did the Uwashans say anything important? Why the hell were they in that cave? Did they murder the captain? Oh crap, are the Hurons and giants okay?!
Ask for your entire inheritance, translated into goods that can be sold out in the boonies for a profit.

>A
LOL why is this even an... option... oh right. Asshole.
Your status means you'll start out with a low Appearance score with any resistance fighters, and we don't know if their command structure is anarchic or communist - the latter is delusional, which is a bad thing. You can come back later after you've earned some street cred.
And I expect the Uwashans will immediately find a disposable commoner with similar build from their slave stock to act as a body double while they torture you to death for accidentally purging their inquisitors.

>B
Agonizingly hot desert with no automated air-conditioning, bitterly misogynistic zealots for civilians, scantily clad harem girls which you may be forced to emulate to your embarrassment, and a general lack of self-made resources.
There are benefits - many worlds these days are experiencing a return of the plague, and the lack of dense life means diseases die just as easily as mortals do out here - but in general, I'd say stay away from here until you want to do some fun gold mining.
Oh, ask your old fart if there are any patches of black goo in the desert. Let's just say it's worth its weight in pure water.

Before you leave, make it sound like you're going to use this as an opportunity to go out in the world and do something to help others. Then say that if they hear about any good deeds you do, you hope they'll be proud of you for doing something to help others.

Well, to be honest I was expecting the banishment. That's how nobles work. I actually thought that they would be pissed about your brother, but is business as usual. But this is good, it will give us the opportunity to look for the runes without the intervention of your family.

Despite his sorry state, you must agree that him being alive is a miracle and a blessing. I just hope we weren't the cause of his injuries.

Ask for one last thing before you go, and let them speak with your brother alone. We want to hear his side of the story and properly say goodbyes to the ONLY family member who gives a shit.

As for where to go... D has great potential. Someone who knows about magic will help you greatly. There will be political discord anywhere anyway.

Chill dude this is just politics, daddy corson is doing what he's gotta do. What's the alternative, couping him with an army of nobles pulled out of your ass and making Maya kill her own dad and going to war with the whatever empire? Idk anime villain Maya sounds lame.

Oh the situation was FUBAR long before we showed up. I mean we still fucked up but everyone in that situation basically fucked up. We were just the ones left holding the pot when the dust settled so we were the most convenient to pin the blame on since people love having someone they can blame for everything. I mean it makes sense that the edge mountain kingdom would want to blame someone that isn't them because if people find out that a whole platoon of their solders was taken out by the local wild life they're meant to be protecting their people from then they look weak and incompetent, and with war on the horizon that is not an image that they want to be seen as.

Daddy dearest also needed someone to blame because he risk opening a war on two fronts which would be very bad, even if one side only has a bunch of half competent solders (at best) who can barely keep up with the wild life much less other solders, as they'd still draw our kingdom's solders away from the much more important southern front. So too safe guard his kingdom he's throwing his own daughter under the wagon for political favors. Makes him a half decent leader to put his nation above even his own family but still makes him a shit dad.

honestly I do feel there is something more going on in the background that we don't see which is why I want to stay FAR away from that mess when it hits the fan which is part of the the reason why I want to go to the islands. It will be the furthest away from ground zero.

It may be implied the others died. Even if they did not, if they ended up in Alto's state, one could see why their noble families would be unhappy and it'd cause tension. Regardless of Maya's relative innocence.

>>1032847
Healers aren't necessarily magicians, you know. And magic isn't outlawed - it appear to be licensed, meaning one is expected to have the training and permission to practice it.

One good thing about the magic runes having fallen to the earth is that there might actually be a rune governing healing around. If Maya recovers it, she might be able to restore her brother and her honor. Possible long-term goal, yes?

He specifically said dangerous magic has been outlawed. For example, the fire magic that Maya has been using is dangerous.

The healers' magic is not outlawed because it's not dangerous. On top of that, the healers have a proper license to permit them to use their magic, while Maya does not have any kind of license like that.

Corson: "Hmm, that is interesting... Unfortunately, all those within the mine were burnt to an unrecognizable form."

Corson: "Well of course I wouldn't send my daughter off with nothing... I'll give you a pittance of gold when you get on your way."

>Is there a condition Maya can return?

Corson: "Yes. I suppose so. For one, the main reason for this is to placate the Uwashans, so if we were to ever go to proper war... Well, I'd see no reason to leave you banished then. Or, of course if you were married or courting a high ranking noble, you could of course return at his whims..."

I approach Alto. The nurse is casting some sort of soothing spell on his back. He sits, looking aggitated... My poor brother...

>What is the limit of regeneration magic?

From what little I remember from class, it can be fairly powerful, but... It fresher the injury, the easier it is to heal. If it took them a long time to get Alto to a strong healer then...

>Perhaps Alto could regenerate his eye and arm? Or get enchanted limbs?

I've never heard of such magic! It would have to be very powerful, I'm sure...

>Give Alto a hug and apologize.

I apologize and move to give Alto a hug, but he shrinks away...

Alto: "...Sorry. It's just... That'll hurt a lot."

Oh right.

>What happened on Alto's side?

Alto: "The guard was... pulled into the distance by something... I gave chase, and followed them into a cavern nearby... There were spiders all around before I knew it... I tried blasting them with fire magic, but... I didn't want um... The fire to spread, so I couldn't... I tried to retreat, but as I left the cavern... something... hit me, and I fell into the webs.... The next thing I knew, I was... hot. B... Burning..! I couldn't get loose..! It was so hot..! I heard others yell around me, but I... I could do nothing for them... Or myself."

I say goodbye to Alto. Maybe for the last time. He doesn't look at me. He simply says goodbye back.

Yes... I suppose there is... Though I'm not sure how to do such things myself.

I take one last look back at my home before boarding the carriage that will take me away...

You're right. I decide on the Koraban Islands. I'd like to better master this magic of mine so I never hurt someone like that again...

I'm not sure what to do! You'll have to decide if you want me to tell him when the time comes.

Seasickness is caused because your sense of balance (allocated in your ears) doesn't correspond to what your eyes are seeing. Try to brace yourself, close oyur eyes and breathe deeply. If is not enought, get to the center of the boar, it will move less. If anything works, go to sleep in the more stable place you find.

I recomend trying to get used to it, because you are going to an archipielago and boat trips will be comon.
