It’s nice to be a free bird, but there are perks to teaming up on occasion.

For example: Rae’s nightshirt is very comfy.

She’d never let me sleep in it if it was clean, but thankfully it’s laundry day. The best day.

It’s dangerous in the wild. I’ve been in my share of scraps and tussles, and I’m beat. I deserve this nice relaxing trip to the big city!

My very first ranger companion is spoiling me rotten and it’s great. She won’t admit it, but she’s so happy to have me around. She’s literally serving me my own plate at the table when I could just grab a mouse or two from the fields outside Minga in no time flat and be just as full. I know it. She knows it. But hey, I’m not stopping her. That chicken is good.

There’s no big bad beasties trying to eat me. There’s no prey for me to help Raelynn hunt. I’m on vacation.

What better way to remember a vacation than to pick up some souvenirs along the way?

TECH TREE
Collect trophies to gain points! Some items are worth more points than others. Numbers next to question marks indicate how many points are needed to unlock the next level up the tree.

STORM
The tempest of Taranis’s divine lineage howls within him!

1. Wind Magic: Taranis flaps his wings to generate gales of wind. More points allows more wind that can be used to boost your speed, effect a quick getaway, and other creative uses. Higher levels also give a greater chance to flip skirts.

2. Lightning Magic: Zap, crackle, pop! Increase to electrify Taranis’s pursuers. Higher levels means greater shock and a chance to paralyze them briefly.

3. Camouflage Magic: Taranis blends with the environment. Higher levels grant greater levels of camouflage.

CROW
Descended from Huginn and Muninn, Taranis is no ordinary bird!

1. Keen Sight: Allows Taranis to identify weak points in his opponent’s garments. Higher levels reveal more sublte weak points.

2. Agility: Taranis can avoid attacks and get out of trouble more easily. Also grants greater flexibility in the angles he can attack his opponents.

3. Sharp Talons: Taranis’s keen claws can rip and tear weak points he’s identified! Higher levels allow damage to reinforced areas of garments such as heavy leather straps and even allow undoing of metal buckles.

Taranis’s Trophy Collection is Empty.

How does Taranis want to spend the first day of his vacation?

Are there any swimming holes in the area? Visitors there might be wearing minimal attire, making them easy prey to practice on. And if direct attacks wouldn't go well, they'd likely have a change of clothes off to the side you could take as a safer option.

First thing's first, get the lay of the land. Zoom around town, find good escape routes and places to hide. Also, spot high value targets. See which ones are viable for snatching with your current skills, and which ones will take leveling up. Once you have a list, you can tackle the ones today that will be much harder if you delay- don't forget that you will start gaining a reputation! People will start guarding their clothes...

Much better.

Now that I have space for my collection, I can brainstorm some ideas for how to spend my vacation.

Souvenirs are fun, true. But a piece of swag is just a fancy paperweight without memories to go with it. If I’m gonna build a collection, it should remind me of the good times I had getting it. Plus, it’s a great excuse to test my skills. I’m a lean, mean, lightning machine, and the chicks are gonna love me even more when they see these wings in action! This’ll be great training. Rae would approve.

Where were some good people and places to pick swag off of? I think I saw a couple in the week or so I’ve been here.

Choose your mission!

1. FISHING FOR SKINNY DIPPERS – I can definitely find some skinny dippers in the calm forest east of here. There’s always some newbie adventurers running around in that forest, though they might be escorted by a more experienced guard now that Rae found that highly unusual Spirit of Bloodshed. I should be ready for a fight if I get spotted.

2. SERAH AND DOTTI’S ROOM – To get in, I’ll need to learn to pick a lock or find a way in through the window. Dotti’s clothes are right inside, but Serah’s wardrobe is probably locked even tighter. I’ll need special skills to get into her drawers, but they’ll be the fanciest adventuring undies in the guild. Maybe she has some even fancier ones for parties? I don’t have the skills for Serah’s undies right now, but I might be able to get some of Dotti’s.

3. SISTER, SISTER – There’s a cute Priestess of Peace nearby. She’s forbidden from using weapons or offensive magic, so I’m safe from harm… as long as she doesn’t conjure a barrier in front of me. For some reason that doesn’t count as “offensive” magic.

4. WITCHES’ BREW – There are some magic-using ladies in the guild wearing very shiny gemstones they use to focus their magic. I don’t know much about them other than that they carry lots of potions and know how to blast stuff with sparkly missiles. Maybe I could wait for them to take a shower and sneak it from their laundry, or try a direct approach and trust my ability to dodge… or try something else.

5. KAYK’S HOARD – Kayk has big collection of stockings and leggings. I’ve already proven I can steal those, but what if I tried something a little stealthier and went after her sweater… one thread at a time? Or maybe I should just settle for another round of leggings and test my agility dodging her claws.

6. FRUMPY MARQUESS MALLORY – A local noble Serah doesn’t like very much, she’s guaranteed to call her guards on me if I try anything forward, and her residence is well-secured. She’ll have hoity-toity underwear that’ll make a good story, though! Maybe I should save her for later.

I'm just gonna rank my options if that's alright with you. Too many good ones to just say one.

1 - Because it's a good beginner mission, and gives plenty of room for the thread to ramp up.

4 - This also seems like a nice enjoyable time, without being too difficult. A stealth mission would be safest, but we can try combat if we want to contend with their spells and magicks.

3 - Similar to 1, but lower on the list because I feel a little bad bullying someone who can't really fight back.

5 - Only low because you've stolen from Kayk before, so it's not impressive unless you get the sweater. That might be difficult.

6 - A bit too difficult for mission #1. Work your way up to this.

2 - Serah would be more impressive, but she's out of your skill level right now. Dotti is doable, but the last time you tried to steal from her she reacted really badly, so I feel like you may be hesitant to try again.

I need a good warm-up. I’ll try paying a visit to my ancestors’ stomping grounds!

I make my way to the Parish of Peace and flutter through the open sanctuary doors. It’s a very small church, barely an annex by other Gods’ standards. Thankfully, my divine lineage lets me get away with all kinds of mischief on holy ground that would get most anybody else smitten. I once got a tweet from Odin telling me not to test my luck too much, but as long as I don’t, like, cause any major schisms or eschatological crises he’ll have my back.

The priesty girl is offering her morning prayers at the altar, surrounded by burning candles. The church is empty except for me, her and the worn-down pews.

I could go try and find her laundry for a stealth mission, but I’ve never stolen anything off a priestess in her own church. This’ll be fun!

There are no obvious weak points in her outfit, but that’s because her whole outfit is just a robe and sash. I have no idea what’s under her robes. If I don’t know what she’s wearing, it’s a lot harder to swipe anything cleanly (if it’s even possible).

How should I get my first trophy?

The tools at my disposal:

1. Wind magic. Great for blowing robes up to see what’s underneath and plan accordingly, but we’re indoors, and those robes look kind of heavy.
2. Snippy claws. If her robes are too heavy to flip, I could make ‘em shorter, or try another tactic.
3. Camouflage. I can be stealthy and mess with her if it’s needed as part of my plan.
4. Lightning magic. I can zap her a little, but it’ll be very weak ‘cause it’s indoors and on her holy ground.
5. My big bird brain! I’m sure I can come up with lots of awesome ideas. Any second now…

No. 1037612 ID: e5709d

Go with wind. It's subtle, has religious connotations in closed churches, and can blow out the candles so she'll be blinded by the dark.

Use 5 to figure out plan to use 1 to blow out candles to distract her. once she is busy relighting the candles, we can use 3 to camouflage into the darkness, and then 2 to shorten that robe from behind. She'll probably think her robe got caught on something because of the darkness, and not because of a birb.

The sash is the easiest part of her outfit to nab. Use your camouflage and study your prey's habits.

That's actually a pretty nice idea I think. You'll need to separate the sleeves to make it work, but it'll clear the way to get a trophy if you succeed.
>>
No. 1037619 ID: e51896

Alternate idea

first, use wind to blow candles out and make it darker
then use camouflage to hide in darkness.

While she is relighting the candles, go and grab the sash with your claws while using the wind making it look like it blew off somewhere.
Place the sash in a high position so that she'll have to climb up and get it.

While she is busy climbing, we can scan what is under her dress from down below to find a weak-spot, or try to take a piece of her clothing while her hands aren't free (whether it is shortening her dress, or attempting to take some panties or something.

My wind magic isn’t strong enough to flip that robe in here, but it is strong enough to blow out those candles! With a divinely inspired gust, the sanctuary door slams shut and the candles flicker out, plunging the church into shadow. The door is facing the opposite direction of the altar, so there’s very little morning light to work with.

The priestess stands still for a few seconds, disoriented, then sighs and tries to get hear bearings. She stumbles a little, and in that moment, I see my opportunity and swoop in to snatch her sash! I snatch it right off her and head straight for the rafters, covering my tracks with even more wind magic. I quickly try and blend in with the rafters using my camouflage.

“Wha…”The priestess lets out a gasp and pats her shoulders. “I knew I should have closed the door.”

Her eyes begin to adjust to the shadow, but not by much. She spots the dim outline of her sash hanging from an empty candelabra fumbles around for it on tiptoes.

She's not on a ladder, so I can't peek up her very long robes unless I get right under her. It would be pretty easy to do, but...

If I dive bomb her now, this is be my chance to strike! If I want to use my snippy crow claws, I have the element of surprise. That means I get an extra snip!

Suggest to either SNIP or NOT SNIP.

If SNIP, upload an image showing up to two STRAUGHT lines for Taranis to SNIP: the first straight line in pink, the second straight line in purple.

If NOT SNIP, suggest an alternate action.

- Green clothing can be snipped.
- If the line touches Red Clothing, it can go no further. The only red clothing the priestess has visible is her sash and shoes.
- It is considered a Dick Move to snip someone’s hair, so don’t have the line touch it.
- Skin is unaffected by the snip line.
- The first line will be the cleanest snip. The second line may not be as clean.

No. 1037635 ID: f6af6f

Snatching anything good right now would require some very unsubtle snipping, so take the opportunity to make your way under her robes. It'll provide a good view of what she's wearing beneath them and a hiding place in plain sight.

Snip 1: Drag a nice line down the full length of her robe. You can use this as a base for future lines.

Snip 2: Snip above the butt. This should cause the seat of her robe to drag down to her side, exposing her rear and giving access to her undergarments.

1037643

I drew two ideas.

the first idea is similar to Lonelyworlds, but the second cut is higher up.

BUT

the second idea, use your WIND POWER to blow her hair upwards for the first line (pink) to get it out of the way temporarily, and before her hair dangles back down, get the rest of her outfit with the second cut. That way we can get more clothes, AND not cut her hair.

For both, cut upwards to further avoid the hair.

If we can use wind to get that hair out of the way, do the second option for more clothing damage!

As fun as it might be to hide under her robes all day, I think it’s a better use of my vacation to test my stealthy snipping skills. My eyes are used to the dark, unlike the priestess, so I can be precise while she fumbles around.

I strike once, scoring a clean snip all the way up the priestess’s robe and snipping the sleeve. A clean hit! Before she realizes what’s happened, I circle around and snip again, this time across her rear, revealing her loose-fitting underwear.

“AHH!” she shrieks. “Who was that? What’s happening?”

She looks down at her robe and shrieks again. “Ahh! Evil spirits! Evil spirits, begone! Begone now! I command you!”

Good thing I'm not an evil spirit.

Both her bra and loose panties are secured by a single knot each. I think that bra might even unravel if I get a good grip on it! I’ve got the chance to snatch both her bra and panties if I do it right, but if I don’t untie both perfectly, she might figure out I’m not actually a spirit.

I can also perch on one or both knots to guarantee they’ll come undone, but she’ll realize what’s going on pretty quickly.

What should I do?
1. Snip both knots and get both trophies easily, but they’ll be damaged. All her clothes are snippable except her shoes.
2. Try and undo the knot on her bra in one swoop without perching. Odds of successfully getting bra and getting away undetected: high.
3. Try and undo the knot on her panties in one swoop without perching. Odds of successfully getting bra and getting away undetected: high.
4. Try and undo the knot on both her panties and bra in two swoops without perching. Odds of successfully getting both without being detected: moderate.
5. Perch and get both knots undone, but reveal that I am, in fact, a bird.

“Exorcism… exorcism… what’s the chant for an exorcism?” the priestess says hurriedly, holding her robes tight to her body. “Um… I, Priscilla, Priestess of Eirene, cast you evil spirits out! I commend you! No, wait, I meant COMMAND you! NOO! AHH!”

I swoop in and strike once, getting the knot undone on her too-big panties. She lets out a yelp and tries to arrest their fall- and I take the opening to get the knot on her bra too. The loose wrap of cloth immediately unspools and I whisk it right off her. She tries to catch that, too, but lets her panties go- and as I fly away, I send another whoosh of wind magic to send those panties straight to the floor.

As she stumbles forward to try and catch her bra as the last bit of fabric unspools, she steps right out of her underwear and leaves them in the dark, easy pickings for a third pass.

Realizing she’s left in nothing but a torn-up robe, the priestess does the only thing she can think of: shriek as loud as she can.

“You evil spirits! Get out!” she yells. “All I want is to help this nice little church! What did I do to you?! Just because Eirene isn’t a big powerful popular goddess doesn’t mean you can come in here and be bullies, so please just GET OUT RIGHT NOW!”

She really thinks I’m a bunch of evil spirits! This is kind of fun… what would an evil spirit do? Maybe flip her robes some more with wind magic? I’ve already got what I came for, but maybe I can mess with her and put on a show to really sell the illusion. Or I can just leave and take what I feel like.

Should I stay or should I go?
1. Stay just a little longer and mess with Priscilla as an “evil spirit”
2. Do what I’m told and get out right now

When I go, what trophies should I take? More trophies mean higher likelihood of being noticed flying home, unless I stash them somewhere safe and out of the way.
1. Panties: 4 points. Odds of being spotted if I fly straight home with them: Very, Very Low.
2. Bra: 3 points. It’s unwound, so I’ll have to hold tight to keep it from unspooling during flight, increasing visibility. Odds of being spotted if I fly straight home with it: Very Low.
3. Sash: 2 points. It’s very long and hard to keep from unspooling during flight. Odds of being spotted: Low.
4. Bra and panties: Odds of being spotted if I fly straight home: Low.
5. Bra, panties and sash: Odds of being spotted if I fly straight home: Moderate.

Can I do 1.5? Blow the tattered remains of the cloak in her face to get a nice view, making sure to blow the door open while you're at it, take 4, and dip from some way not the door. This way any passers-by can see some pretty lewd scenes and she'll have a credible story about a wind spirit if the wind knocks the door open and someone *accidentally* sees her after you abscond. Could also work to help distract others while you escape with your gains, maybe reducing the catch chance?

I could just take my prizes and leave now, but I might be spotted (or heard fluttering my wings) if I don’t cover up my escape with one closing act by the “evil spirits.” That, and I’d be giving a giant middle talon to all my avian ancestors if I didn’t take the chance to mess with Priscilla one last time.

I send a massive gust of wind straight between Priscilla’s legs and straight through the church doors, slamming them open as the “spirits” make a grand exit. The wind whips the tatters of her priestess robe up, baring everything she’s got to the wide-open double doors. Priscilla shrieks again and spends every ounce of effort covering herself from any potential passers-by, giving me plenty of space to pick up my trophies: her ill-fitting panties and unwound bra.

It pains me to leave behind her sash, but if I’m going the extra mile to sell the act, I don’t want to accidentally give away the game by trailing a giant sky banner on my flight home. I flutter to the rear of the church and sneak through a cracked passageway, following the fresh air to an open window and out to freedom.

Put two points into Wind Magic for stronger gusts and whatever else that unlocks, two into Keen Sight so that we can identify weak points better, and two into Agility to max the stat out. Put your last point into something that unlocks based on those allotments.

2 ideas

3 on sharpness, 3 on camouflage (sneaky birb) save last point

Or

2 on lightning, 2 on agility, 3 on camo or keen eye for witch idea i have:

If we go to witches, we can sneak to a cauldron and hide nearby, wait until they mix potions, and zap them after mixing a ingredient making them think they mixed the wrong potion. Leveling up storm should stun them more, or multiple witches, or even damage clothes. Agility if we're caught so we can dodge stuff they throw, camouflage to help us hide more or keen eye to zap their clothing at their weakpoint for massive damage

(Will decide keen eye or camo later)

I definitely want to hone my reflexes! I’m inspired to train my agility to MAX! 3/3. Now I can learn Feint, which lets me bait out any attack (physical or magical), dodge it, leaving my opponent wide open for a critical strike. Higher levels increase effectiveness of bait and margin of pulling it off safely for me.

If I have 4 points in Wind Magic, I can unlock Nimbus Magic, which lets me conjure fog and mist to obscure myself at low levels, and summon actual, tiny, low-down rainclouds if I put more points in. I can combo it with lightning magic to set traps that go off by themselves! I’m sure this magic will have lots of uses.

If I max out lightning magic (3/3), I know enough to learn Magnetism. I can magnetize metals to myself or to other things in the environment. If I magnetize something to me, physics still apply, though, so I shouldn’t expect to be lifting any big pieces of armor.

A really good use of lightning magic is to energize something else instead of directly zapping somebody myself. For example, charging a bunch of electricity in a doorknob, or a cauldron. If I max out my lightning, I can probably even charge something up from an okay distance away from it, without needing to touch it.

I think lightning by itself will never be enough to damage somebody’s clothes. I’ll have to combo it with something else, either in the environment or with another spell of some kind.

I have to remember that not every opponent’s outfit will be as flimsy as Priscilla’s! I couldn’t even cut through her sash- leather belts, metal buttons and tight buckles are definitely out of my league right now unless I perch on them and really work at it.

I should remember that stealth is always a viable option, especially against multiple opponents. I shouldn’t expect to get a Direct Steal via snipping every time. Sometimes, a clever, indirect approach may be the best, or I could just settle for a good old fashioned panty raid. If it gets out that a bird is stealing underwear off people, Raelynn and Serah might find out.

Now that I’ve remembered some of what I can unlock, I can SPEND MY 5 REMAINING TALENT POINTS.

With my new TROPHIES safely stashed on Rae’s top shelf in her room at the adventuring guild, I’m energized to earn more! I decide to spend some time today getting as good as I can with my lightning magic and learning some lockpicking. I wasn’t noticed carrying anything on the way back- at least, I don’t think so. I’ll have to level up my keen eyes to really be sure who spots me doing stuff. Now that I think about it, my brother is really good at sensing who’s looking at him, and who’s paying attention to what. It’s why Odin likes him so much. f I put two more ranks into keen senses, I bet I’ll be able to unlock a super-sense for who’s looking where and who’s noticed what, just like my brother can.

I spend my points on 2 Lightning, 1 sharpness, 1 lockpicking and 1 camouflage. This gives me lots of options for stealth! With maxxed out lightning, I don’t even have to touch something to energize it, as long as I have a direct path (or a metal path) to something. It’ll flash a bit from me to the target, but if I time it right, it shouldn’t be more than a snap and a crackle.

With three ranks in camouflage, I’m practically invisible to the untrained eye if I don’t move. It’s pretty sweet. Almost as sweet as these sunflower seeds on the floor in the adventurer’s guild cafeteria.

Today is a good day.

I follow the trail of sunflower seeds to the door and nearly get taken out by Serah as she breezes through, completely oblivious to me because, even if I’m Rae’s bird, I’m still just a bird.

If no one is suspicious of me, I can hop around and peek up skirts for future trophies if I feel like it.

Oh! Landi’s following Serah! I immediately perk up at the sight of those shimmering purple-dotted wings.

“Serah, thank you so much,” Landi says. “I totally forgot I promised to help Rocio move tomorrow. Vivi’s counting on me to get her to her fencing match on time and she can’t be late or they’ll DQ her.”

“It’s not a problem,” Serah says, breezing by me. “I’ll get my comfy travel boots and help her get those boxes to her new place safe and sound.”

“Udabest,” Landi says, following Serah down the hall. “You should totally bring Dotti along. She’ll love the pizza, and the food coma should keep her out of trouble.”

“I’ll try, but she has work tomorrow…” Serah says, voice fading.

So Serah and Landi will both be gone tomorrow, and Dotti has work. It’ll be the perfect time to practice my lockpicking!

In the meantime, I have the rest of the day to do whatever I please.

CHOOSE SOMETHING TO DO.

1. Find my best buddy Raelynn and see if she’s had any luck selling the herbs and other medicinal stuff she found on the trip to the Terrorscale lair. I bet she’d like some company, even if she won’t admit it.
2. See if I can find the witches I saw earlier. This will start the WITCHES’ BREW mission with your upgraded talents. No downsides, but if it goes wrong, I’ll have to deal with the consequences and potentially increased suspicion.
3. Go see if I can find some skinny dippers and get more trophies. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel, and if anything goes wrong, it’ll happen far enough away that I won’t have to deal with the consequences today, or maybe even ever.
4. Say hi to Serah and Landi. Maybe they’re planning to do something fun tonight?
5. Hop around and peek up some skirts to scout potential trophies. Might raise some suspicion if I’m too obvious about it.

I should go find Raelynn. She’s great at handling herself by herself, but maybe I can be there for her when she’s trying to handle herself around other people. I hope she gets better about that sometime.

I make my way toward the apothecaries Rae said she was going to try and sell her herbs at. I don’t see her inside, but I do catch a glimpse of blue and gray through the window of a book store.

I swoop inside, quiet as a mouse, and land on the bookcase next to Rae. She gives me a small nod of acknowledgement and keeps staring at what’s on the wall: a map of the beaches far to the southwest.

I hop over and point at the shoreline with my wingtip questioningly. Does she want to take a vacation of her own?

Rae nods. She holds up a fully laden coinpouch and gives me a small smile.

She’s in a great mood today! I flap my wings eagerly.

“Not right away,” Rae says, toying with her braids, “but sometime.”

Well, if she doesn’t want to spend that money on a trip to the beaches, then what?

Rae picks up on my inquisitive beady little gaze. She thinks for a moment. “First… I guess… I’d like to try a new hair color.”

What hair color/s should I suggest for Rae? Should I also suggest she try a new hairdo?

Clearly the best hair colors are my colors, but perhaps we can save that for a theme party later, or when Rae needs to be all serious and stealthy like me. She has her own camouflage magic, so even if she chooses a tie-dye hair color she can have it fade into her cloak’s colors. It’s Rae’s hair after all, so the decision is up to her. I’m just here to provide her with my expert opinion.

Her choice is, essentially, does she want to look cute with brown hair or have fun with some pink, red and magenta?

I flap my wings and point at some red and magenta books and hop around excitedly. Rae nods in agreement.

Then I point with a talon at a brown book and give her my best cute, beady eyes.

“I’m not cute,” Rae replies. ”You’re the cute one.”

Aww, she gave me a compliment even though she totally meant it as an accusation. Well, she’s trying to be friendly. She really is.

“I think I’ll go with the mix of red and magenta hair,” Rae says. “I can…” she pauses. “Well…”

I tilt my head to the side. Go on, you can do it!

“I can buy you something to wear if you want. Maybe a bell? Or a hat?”

My own wardrobe? How tempting! She really does think I’m cute. However, the idea of Rae spending money on an outfit for me is so unappealing. I don’t particularly like the idea of wearing anything I didn’t take as a trophy. Chicks don’t like a poser, and there’s no bigger poser than a bird who decks himself out in things he didn’t earn.

On the other hand, where else am I going to find clothes in my size? Or an awesome little hat?

And am I really prepared to accept the fact that Rae’s decided I’m the cute one?

Should I accept Rae’s offer to buy me accessories?
1. Yes! Sell out to capitalism and embrace my inner fashionista. Maybe classy fairies will like it.
2. No! Reject fiat currency, it’s so unappealing to wild girls.

I can’t accept Rae’s offer, no matter how tempting a fitted hat or plume might be. If I didn’t earn an accessory by taking it for myself, how can I hold my head high wearing it?

Since Rae has also rejected my recommendation for cute brown hair, I’ll have to bear the heavy burden of being the cute one in the dynamic duo.

“Suit yourself,” Rae shrugs. “I’m going to go get some hair dye. You can come along if you want.”

I shake my head. I’ve got accessorizing of my own to do.

“Okay,” Rae says. “I’ll see you later, then. Try not to get into trouble.”

Not a problem! I give her a crisp salute. She rolls her eye and leaves me be.

It’s midafternoon. I doubt there will be any skinny dippers until late in the evening, and the witches have probably finished the technical part of their brewing for the day. None of the leads from the morning are gonna pan out. I’ll have to find some new leads.

New Trophy Hunt suggestion: Go after an adventuring ranger and her fairy companion shopping in the marketplace. You have to be stealthy to not be seen by passerbys, or very tactical in your timing so that you can strike when they're alone or not being observed. You get to strip someone a lot smaller than you, and you get to mess around with fairies without inciting Landi revenge. (Though any fairy you meet have a non-zero chance of being a friend/acquaintence of hers.)

The adventurer can be a bird too, that's what draws Taranis to her. Beautiful wings and plumage. Make 'em like an anthropomorphic Woodlark, because fuck the popular bird species.

Shiny objects are great accessories. Maybe if I swipe a few buttons off a blazer or coat, I can wear them around a little string and-

BY ODIN’S EYEPATCH LOOK AT HER

She’s SO CUTE

I’m so shocked I nearly crash into a building. Thankfully I pull up just in time to make an undignified flapping landing on a windowsill and get another chance to pick her out of the crowd.

She’s everything a bird could dream of. Wonderful plumage. Big beady eyes. Sharp talons. Hooked claws atop her luscious wings.

And as if that wasn’t enough, she’s got a fairy companion too. The fairy’s wings are kind of on the small side, but she’s got six of ‘em!

They’re shopping for fruits and veggies in the market. It’s a busy afternoon, so I can’t make a direct appearance. However, I’m almost perfectly camouflaged as long as I don’t move. The woodlark-kin is very likely an adventurer, so she might be able to spot me if she knows what to look for.

This is an opportunity to try and snag a trophy from a fairy if I can, but it’ll be very difficult to pull off undetected unless I get clever.

Interestingly, the wing-kin’s top is poorly done up. It looks like the lacing has been snipped and it’s jury-rigged with a halfhearted knot in back. My heart goes out to her- it must be so difficult to handle delicate clothes with sharp talons.

I watch as the dynamic avian duo purchase a few fruits and veggies. The fairy handles the transactions for the wing-kin with her inventory magic. Landi’s not the only one who can do that, obviously, but for the wing-kin, inventory magic is incredibly valuable to have in a companion.

“These are gonna taste great, Apricot!” the fairy says. “Did you see anyone selling lacing around here? There must be someone with something we can fix you up with.”

“Thanks, Autumn. Let’s keep looking,” says the wing-kin, whose name is apparently Apricot.

My keen vision isn’t nearly strong enough to get a glimpse of Autumn through her glow. However, Apricot’s outfit has obvious weak points if I want to try something clever:

- Broken lacing in back, secured with two knots
- Knot behind neck
- Belt clip
- Pleated skirt, maybe vulnerable to wind magic (unknown what’s underneath)

This is my greatest challenge yet. Maybe I should gather more information on them before I try anything, but I have to remember that I am in the middle of Minga in midday.

What should I do?
>>
No. 1039020 ID: 899c9f

Snip the belt, then go for the neck tie. But the wingkin is just a distraction. The fairy is priority one. If you can make them use up a lot of magic, you might be able to see through the glow. Maybe if you cause a nearby stand to collapse and force them to use inventory magic to catch a cabbage collapse?
>>
No. 1039021 ID: e51896

Looking at her back, I don't see anything that looks like strapping for a bra... is she going commando? (at least on her top-half?) if so, we might only need to deal with skirt to save some time to get the panties at least. Have her go bottomless.

Anyways, gonna be hard to sneak fully take trophies in a public spot like this, and if her fairy friend is keeping watch. might be best to wait until they move somewhere quieter while spying for any important info.

I do have an idea to steal a round fruit we can carry, wait for them to go somewhere private (while learning more about them) wait for them to pass by somewhere, and roll the fruit under her feet so she trips and falls on the floor, and then do some wind magic to blow the fairy away as you fly over and snip her clothes as she focuses on getting up. They won't see what hit them.

I do also like this idea, though I wouldn't attack her clothes immediately after we knock the stand towards them since we're in a public spot right now. but we could knock it down to cause the fairy to use up some of her powder so she won't be as much of a problem later when we do attack. Maybe not even the stand, we can probably use wind magic on the fruit to blow the fruit at the fairy so she tries to catch them to protect themselves. Just gotta sneak atop a fruit stand (one where a shopkeeper isn't really paying attention, stay camouflaged, and wait for them to pass so we can shoot fruit and veggies at them.

If you can find a store that sells laces, you could ingratiate yourself with the pair. You could get some information that way, as well as more openly follow them to somewhere more private where you can strike.
Do you have to STEAL a trophy? Does it count if it's given willingly? Maybe you can avoid a reputation hit if you buy a replacement for her laces and such before snipping and stealing the ones she's got...

You could also use your camouflage and wait somewhere she's going to pass by, like a store that sells laces, and get a peek up that skirt.

Trophies do NOT have to be stolen. STEALING a trophy proves without a doubt Taranis is a cunning and incredible bird (far more cunning and incredible than the trophy's previous owner, duh) but receiving a willingly given one will also award TALENT POINTS if the trophy comes with a memory/story of Taranis being cunning and incredible.

Parrotgon will be good to keep in mind for people we like, like our fellow party members, but this is a random sexy bird lady + fairy. Save the concerns about karma for when we're Dotti or Serah, birds are unconcerned with morality.

Now, we're in the middle of town atm, so a direct attack isn't going to be our best option right off the bat. We'll need to prep them both to give us the best situation to strike.

>>1039020
I definitely agree with the idea of causing the fairy to expend her dust early with indirect attacks. Causing a stall to fall over is a decent plan if the scenario allows, but otherwise use your bird's eye perspective to get a good look around for alternatives.

Also, if you can, try to figure out where they might find someone selling lace. You might be able to lead them to or away from them depending on how exactly we play this, or otherwise steal some lace to use as bait.

The marketplace is crowded, which means stealth strikes are near-impossible, at least with my current skills. But crowded marketplaces mean lots of fellow avians pecking for food. I join a crowd of city-slicker pigeons and camouflage myself with feather colors just like them. They give me some weird looks, but since I’m not eating their bread, they leave me be.

I hop a few feet over to survey Apricot as she walks by. She’s wearing tight-fit shorts under her skirt. Makes sense. Unfortunately, I also see that the shorts are made of material specifically] resistant to slicing and snipping by bird claws and talons. She’s a bird herself, and she has to pull those on and take them off herself with only wing-claws to do it. There’s absolutely no way I can snip those shorts. Even if I max out my snipping, I’d probably get caught or snagged on that anti-bird-claw fabric.

It’s a cruel, cruel world.

Once Apricot and Autumn pass by, I take flight again and watch them make their errands.

Apricot is a melee fighter, and apparently her main strategy in combat is to load up on armor and magic resistance buffs from Autumn, dive bomb behind enemy lines, and slice and dice using her claws and talons. If the enemies have melee fighters in the back lines for some reason, she just swoops in, picks up a magic caster and drops them from as high up as she can. If even that’s too dangerous, Autumn (riding shotgun on Apricot’s back) uses her inventory magic to drop bombs from high altitude.

Autumn is a doting fairy companion fixated on making Apricot happy and taking care of her needs. She’s constantly asking her if she wants food or water. Every minute or so she gives a gentle tug on Apricot’s laces, making sure they’re still tied tight.

A&A aren’t having much luck finding a shop that sells lacing. They’re in the farmers’ market, not the artisans’ area. There’s lots of food and fruit, but not much in the way of outfits, armor or weapons. Autumn is loading up on delicious fruit and some flowers for another member of their party. Autumn’s inventory magic doesn’t use much magic, but your keen senses detect the slightest loss of glow every time she adds something to her inventory OR takes it out.

That’s about all I can find for now, unless I want to look for something specific. There are lots of people and food carts around, but they don’t care about crows and pigeons.

Right now, Apricot is engaged in conversation with a tomato merchant. Autumn is rustling through her inventory- you can hear her counting out coins from her dimensional pocket.

What should I do?

Counting out coin, hm? If you hide them under the table, she'll have to keep looking through her inventory for more. You're a bird, they're shiny, no one would convict you for that.
Or, between tugs at the laces, carefully snip them so that one good tug undoes the whole thing. Make it look like an accident.

If you go for a snip now, the merchant might see you. Let's do a bit of setting up first.

Grab a coin (it's a marketplace, I'm sure you can find one to snatch) and drop it at her feet. Make her think her fairy dropped one while counting. Then, when she bends over to grab it, the stall should obscure the merchant's sight. Use your agility to take full advantage of that window, and snip some laces. The ones around her back should be easy, but if you can get the top one then her chest should definitely spill out.

You may consider adding an electric charge to the coin as well. Not to harm her, but just to give her a jolt that distracts from your attack. All the unexpected feelings from the shock to the assault on her top should leave her disoriented and unsure of what happened.

If her fairy goes to grab the coin instead, then knock a few tomatoes onto her, and force her to use her inventory magic to catch them. Deplete her dust!

How about a mixed paragon-renegade approach? Cause a distraction so that you can snip some laces without anyone seeing, but not enough that her top becomes undone immediately. She'll think it came undone on its own, and have to cover herself. Then you can show up and offer to guide them to the shop that sells laces, gaining totally unearned gratitude you can use to get her old laces as a trophy.

When in doubt, knock stuff on the ground!

I send a strong gust of wind magic laced with lightning magic through the pile of coins on the table.

“Ah!” Autumn says, scrambling to catch the coins before they fall. She scoops as many as she can back into her inventory, but she misses a good amount of them. I blow some coins off the table, and they roll around on the cobblestones, and one of them has a nasty shock hidden in it.

“I lost count,” Autumn groans. “Hang on, let me get the coins back.”

“I got ‘em!” Apricot says. She hops around the edge of the stall and starts picking them up and scooping them into her wings. Poorly.
I can strike! She’s out of vision of both the merchant and her companion, and the crowds won’t notice anything too suspicious if I’m agile.

Choose to SNIP or NOT SNIP.

Taranis has a very low chance of being noticed if he snips once, and a low chance of being noticed if he snips twice thanks to the electric shock in the coins.

If SNIP, upload an image showing up to two STRAIGHT lines for Taranis to SNIP: the first straight line in pink, the second straight line in purple.

- Green clothing can be snipped.
- If the line touches Red Clothing, Taranis’s talon will get caught in the anti-snip shorts.
- Taranis is not skilled enough at snipping to entirely avoid touching Red Clothing if he snips a green layer above the Red Clothing. Taranis is moderately likely to get caught in the anti-snip shorts if the line crosses the red clothing underneath the green clothing.
- Taranis is confident he won’t snip any feathers, so don’t worry about that.
- The first line will be the cleanest snip. The second line may not be as clean.

Snip 1: Nice and simple, cut straight across her laces while ignoring the tempting skirt below. Don't want to accidentally hook your talons into her shorts.

Snip 2 (Optional): Keep it nice and simple: Completely take out the top knot, making this impossible to retie this easily. Force her to step aside and find somewhere private to do damage control, which will make it easier for you to strike again. This may happen even with just the first snip though, so I vote against going for two.

Your first trophy: A snip of the skirt.
Your second strike: the laces, an easy target.

This minus the second snip.

Hmm, what would we take as a trophy though? Can't get the shorts, so it'd have to be the laces, and maybe part of the skirt if we want to be obvious... but we shouldn't be.

Hmm, in this case, we also don't want to snip much of the laces, because the more cuts there are the more obvious it is that it's sabotage.

So this is my very subtle cut.
