Time to play hero you racketeering bird! Go pinch the nearest bit of fabric and give it to the fairy as a gift!
No. 1041984 ID: 629f2e

TBC, since Donut asked, I'm in favor of staying stealthy while doing this. Have the napkin miraculously drop from the sky onto her. We have some wind magic, we should be able to manage a clean drop without the breeze carrying it away.

Let this play out, Autumn is holding out on the last of her mana since she's still got the glow. Once she gives them back... go for the fairy frock!

Letting the situation escalate would be bad. I don’t need guards involved! Better to have Autumn spot something to cover up with so she can use up all her dust and give back the fruits and veggies.

I spot a tiny napkin on a café table nearby and swipe it when no one is looking, then drop it just far enough away from Apricot and Autumn that I can use my wind magic to blow it into their path.

“I’ll come back later, I swear!” Autumn says. “I promise! Trust me, I’m a fairy!”

“I really don’t think so,” says the merchant. “Do I need to call the guards and tell them a fairy is refusing to pay for something she just absconded with?”

“Autumn, look!” Apricot says. “I’ll carry you home between my wings, and you can wear this too! It’s okay, no one will see you, and the guards don’t have to get involved.”

Autumn, flustered, doesn’t see a way out of things. She carefully opens back up her inventory and places all the delicate fruits back on the merchant’s cart, leaving her well and truly out of magic dust. Apricot blocks the angle from the street, but you’ve got a bird’s eye view.

Autumn is wearing a dress fashioned entirely of soft leaves, along with some tiny stockings and flats. Her dustless wings are very, very small now that her glow is gone, and with it the light-bending effects that (sometimes) make wings look bigger. Fairy proportions are weird.

Autumn hurriedly covers herself up with the napkin, and Apricot cradles Autumn delicately in her wings, keeping her sharp talons far from the tiny fairy.

Without her protective glow, Autumn’s outfit is very, very vulnerable to wind magic. I could easily blow her leaves away with a strong gust. At the same time, Apricot’s top is loosely flapping in the back, and her neck strap is only hanging on by the thinnest of threads.

“You’re welcome,” Apricot says. The merchant doesn’t listen; he’s checking the fruit for bruises. Apricot sighs and takes Autumn away. “Come on, I’ll take you back to the guild. We can get my strings tomorrow.”

“Are you sure?” Autumn asks, her voice muffled.

“I’m fine,” Apricot says cheerily, oblivious to her top’s precarious situation.

I have tons of options for trophies now! This is my best chance to get trophies, so I should plan carefully!

I could stay stealthy and settle for some lesser trophies through cleverness. Or I could break cover in a burst of wind and snipping, and get absolutely everything I can!

Or I could play the hero and help the girls out. I wouldn’t get any underwear, obviously, but I might get something else nice. Maybe. I’d still get talent points, but not as many.
No. 1041999 ID: 899c9f

Use a burst of wind and focus on filching the fairy's fabrics.
No. 1042001 ID: e51896

Do not break cover with a burst of wind. either stay stealthy until they are somewhere less public than the market so they don't get arrested (don't want our cover blown too soon and make our missions harder later on, stay stealthy now for lesser trophies so we can get even more trophies down the line) or help them out. One of those two votes. Leaning towards stealthy and waiting until they are somewhere a little less public, (but still in a public area mind you).
No. 1042002 ID: 629f2e

Since Apricot's snip-proof shorts will limit how successful we can be, I'm in favor of stealth with an aim for two main trophies:

-Apricot's top (No further snips required hopefully, just need to keep her from knotting it back up and collect it when her guard is down).

-Autumn's... Is she even wearing underwear? If she is, then her panties. If not, then maybe just like her shoes or stockings. It'll be a tough ask while maintaining stealth either way, but I like to dream big.
No. 1042004 ID: e5709d

This is no time for trophies!
These are adventurers. You know, the kind of minions that will ensure Raelynn doesn't die by taking deathblows for her?
Steal their adventuring gear, hide it in a safe location, then 'accidentally' push Kensington to find the stash so she can return it and take their gratitude - and resumes.

Apricot and Autumn are in a marketplace, so now isn’t really the best time for me to swoop in and claim trophies. All I have to do is wait for the neck strap on Apricot’s top to fray just a hair further… and there it goes!

Apricot lets out a squawk as her top slips down, its strings completely undone. She quickly clutches it to her chest, making sure not to squeeze Autumn too tight as she does. Unfortunately for her, this means she’s got to be very careful with how tight she holds that top.

“What’s wrong?” Autumn asks, her voice muffled from the napkin and concealing feathers.

“My top!” Apricot whispers. “Autumn, help! You’ve gotta tie it back up!”

“I’m sorry, I… I can’t!” Autumn says. “Not here! I just can’t!”

Apricot’s wings are tense, and it looks like she wants to take flight insitinctively. She fights the urge and instead jogs into a secluded alleyway nearby. It’s dark and smelly, but the trash heaps can conceal her from the marketplace at both ends. There’s a slight wind blowing from one end to the other, so the stench isn’t too bad.

I flutter after them and watch as Autumn hops out of Apricot’s grasp, who lets her top fall atop a dirty wooden crate.

“You have to stop picking at your strings,” Autumn says, barely keeping the disappointment from her voice.

“I wasn’t! I swear!” Apricot says, her voice jumping a pitch higher.

“I’m not sure I can tie this back together very tight,” Autumn says. “I’m really sorry… I’m not used to working without my magic. I feel so… so heavy. Um… maybe if I use my belt to secure the frayed part of neck strap together a bit, right around the knot, it’ll hold for just a little longer.”

Autumn reaches for her belt and finds that the leaves and tight vine have dried up and crinkled into a weak, dry mess. “Oh, no,” she whispers, looking down at her crinkling leaf dress. “Apricot, we’ve got to hurry back to our room!”

“I’ll hurry once I have a top that works!” Apricot says. “Can’t you fly behind me and hold it up?”

“I could if I had plenty of magic, but no, not now,” Autumn says. “I’m sorry! I just can’t lift anything. I can barely even fly. The best I can do is… well, I could try using my stockings instead of my belt to tie your strap back together as tight as I can.”

“Do that!”

This is the best chance I have! I have two options:

1. Stay stealthy and get some trophies. I bet a really, really good gust of wind will send everything on Autumn’s wooden crate flying, and maybe even blow her dress into pieces. I’ll be able to grab Apricot’s top, and have to choose one selection from this list:
-Leaves from Autumn’s dress, and either a stocking or a shoe
-Both of Autumn’s stockings
-Both of Autumn’s shoes
-One stocking, one shoe

2. Swoop in and steal everything I can! Autumn and Apricot will get a good look at me, but I’ll get Apricot’s top, my choice of her legwear/shoes (but not all of it), and get a chance to pluck some underwear right off Autumn if she’s wearing anything under her dress, if I want to. It’s not stealthy at all, but it’s doable!

3. Or I could play the hero and help them out. I wonder what I’d get if I helped hold up Apricot’s top, or gave Autumn a mana potion I “borrowed”? This would let them both cover up, and they’d be very grateful.

1 for sure! Grab one shoe and one stocking, both the same side for maximum lopsidednes, and Apricot's top.

Save the heroism for another day. Don't want to develop a habit of turning into a goodie two-shoes who can't commit to his schemes. Trophies and lewdness do not lie in that direction. It is the path of cowards who care about junk like emotional growth.

3) You might accrue suspicion. But it's worth the risk; if you succeed, you'll have these two at your side every day for the rest of your life. Lure them to Lady Kensington's quarters, give them Landi's beer stash, and get Serah to write up an ironclad employee contract.

I’m so close to snagging some really rare fairy swag that took so much effort (and luck) to get. All I’ve got to do is flap my wings and blow those clothes away, and snag them at the other end of the alley. I’ll be home free! Apricot and Autumn are really stressed. There’s no way they’ll be able to get a good look at me if I do it fast- I might even be undetected.

True stealth! A thief in broad daylight! How cool is that? I’ll remember how awesome it was every time I look at the trophies I get. It’ll be like I was never here. The winged girls will be so confused where their clothes went. They would in awe of my total tactical genius, if only they knew. The other winged girls will be so impressed, especially the magpies.

Wait. Why am I adding extra steps? There are winged girls right here. What if I decide to impress them? They are pretty cute, and cute winged girls attract cute winged girls…

I gently swoop down and perch behind Autumn and Apricot and give a soft caw.

“What’s that?” Autumn asks.

“A crow?” Apricot asks. She reflexively covers her chest with a wing, but lowers it once she realizes how silly she’s being.

I spread my glorious wings and give a bow.

“Is he looking for a ranger companion? Oh! Pick me!”

“Not right now, Apricot…”

Ha! Too bad for her, I’m already taken. I shake my head.

“He’s a smart crow,” Autumn says. “So you understand what we’re saying, right?”

I bob my head.

“Oh! This is great!” Apricot says. “Hey, can you help us out, pretty please?”

I give another bob of my head.

Apricot and Autumn eagerly accept the offer. Autumn can’t reach her inventory magic, so she can’t pay for any mana potions at the moment. I can’t help much with that. But I can hold Apricot’s top tight, so she can carry Autumn without it falling off. It’s a good enough system to make it to the nearest place that sells laces (a cobbler). I’m familiar enough with the market, having spent enough time looking for Rae around here. I guide them to it by pointing my wings in the right direction.

The cobbler agrees to loan the girls the laces until they can pay him back. Autumn is comfortable hiding behind my outstretched wings like big black curtains while she helps redo Apricot’s lacing. She’s nervous about the state her dress is in, but miraculously, it holds together, despite crinkling and crunching loudly.

Once she’s done, the broken laces are about to be thrown in the trash, but Apricot spies my beady gaze.

“Do you want those laces for a nest?” she asks. “I’m just going to throw them away.”

Of course I do!

-Apricot’s Broken Halter Top Laces!
It's worth Three Talent Points, more than it would have been worth otherwise since it was gifted freely and has a good story to go with it.

Apricot invites me aboard her shoulder, and we have a pleasant conversation while Autumn does her best to be invisible.

I like these two. I don’t respect them, but I like them.

Maybe it’s time for a murder.

Apricot and Autumn are now part of Taranis’s Murder!

-Taranis is now welcome to hang out with Autimn and Apricot whenever and wherever they run into each other, even in the baths.
- If Taranis is being pursued, he can land on Apricot’s shoulder, hide under her wings, or sneak under her tailfeathers and achieve near-perfect stealth, even in a crowd. She won’t mind.
- Taranis can now pester Raelynn to invite Apricot and Autumn on adventures.
- Taranis can now ask favors of Autumn and Apricot.
- If Taranis gets permission from Odin to use the Tweet spell with mortals, he can communicate with them over moderate distances.

We arrive back at the guild. While I drop my new trophy off at my stash, Autumn quickly downs a mana potion and feels right as rain. Landi, Dotti and Kayk are out at a bar for ladies’ night, but Serah is here. Rae is doing Rae things somewhere else. I'm kind of tired. It's been a big day!

Do I want to hang out with Autumn and Apricot at the adventurers’ guild, take a well-earned rest and end the day, or do something else?
No. 1042820 ID: 629f2e

Alright, I'm won over, this was actually a great choice.

Let's hang out with our new birb friend. Maybe wave Serah or Rae over to join in the fun.

Serah is double-checking her seals and addresses envelopes of a pile of letters. She stretches her arms and stands up, raising an eyebrow at me and my murder.

“Oooh, tall lady,” Apricot says.

“Tall Lady, Autumn adds. “This is Lady Kensington. And, uh, she’s Apricot and I’m Autumn.” She flits out from behind Apricot’s shoulder and gives a kind of midair curtsy with her wings. It’s kind of hard to notice for people who aren’t used to starting at small glowing orbs.

“It’s my pleasure to make your acquaintance,” Serah says, returning the curtsy. “I’ve seen you two around the guild. Are you new adventurers?”

“Yeah!” Apricot says. “Hey, what’s it like being big and strong? I bet you get asked to help people move their stuff a lot.”

“It’s true,” Serah says. “I’m helping a friend of a friend move house tomorrow.”

Autumn gasps. “What kind of friend of a friend can ask a Lady to do manual labor? What if someone sees you?”

“House Kensington is noblesse d'épée. It’s hardly a scandal for me to go out and fight, or lift heavy boxes. It’s kind of expected, at least for a period of time,” Serah says. “Besides, it’s not as if I’ll be dressed in a ball gown.”

“She’s an adventurer, and an adventurer helps people!” Apricot says. “For the right price, of course. It must be nice not having to worry about money, too.”

“It is a luxury to focus on… other matters, yes,” Serah says. “Would you like to join me for a light dinner?”

“Would we!” Apricot says.

I bob my head in agreement.

We spend the rest of the evening chatting. I head to bed, tired and full.

Choose how to spend your three talent points.

As a reminder, upgrading Keen Sight will allow Taranis to pick out hidden vulnerable points in armor and clothing, and enable precision strikes that would not have been spotted before.

If Taranis upgrades Keen Sight to level 4, he gains a sense of where specific people can see, and where they cannot. Level 2 of Keen Senses gives alert levels of guards and a much better idea of who may or may not have seen Taranis.

- Taranis has upgraded his Keen Sight to level 4! He can now spot most (but not all) weak points in clothes and armor. Level 5 will reveal every weakness, should you choose to specialize in the precision strike.
Taranis now has a vague sense of where people are looking and if they’re paying attention to him. He can now put points in Keen Senses to refine this sense.

Taranis has upgraded his Sharp Talons to level 4!
New Talent Option Available: [/b]Pinpoint Pickpocket Precision![/b] Taranis can train his ability to stealthily SNIP, TUG or SNATCH clothing and trinkets such as buttons, knots, small buckles and coinpurses.

Rae and I wake up the next morning and go through our usual exercise routine. She notices I’ve gotten more agile, and gives me a nod of appreciation. I give her a nod of appreciation of her newly dyed magenta tie-dye hair. Her hair says she’s feeling great, no matter what her face says.

Over breakfast, Serah mentions that she ran into Priscilla, Priestess of Peace yesterday. The Priestess was in a bad mood and wouldn’t say why. The Church of Eirene isn’t very well-attended these days. Perhaps she’s lonely, or donation money is running out. It’s a shame, since the smaller gods and goddesses can’t afford to expand and get as many worshippers as the big churches, like the Church of Censorship. It’s a self-perpetuating cycle.

My poker face is ten out of ten.

Dotti heads off to work for Kayk, Landi portals Serah out to help Rocio move, and Landi herself leaves to help get Vivi to her fencing match. Rae says she’s going to go build some traps that won’t put her eye out, which is as close as she gets to making a joke. There’s nothing I can do to help her other than look cute.

The day is all mine!

Choose your mission!
Ranked in ascending order of difficulty.

1. LOOK CUTE FOR RAELYNN – Be a cheerleader for Raelynn as she makes traps that don’t put her eye out.

2. FISHING FOR SKINNY DIPPERS – Right what it says on the box. Odds are, someone will be watching over the skinny dippers, either to protect them from peeping toms and ambushers, or to be the ambusher themselves (bandits, oh no!) Combat guaranteed.

3. SERAH AND DOTTI AND LANDI’S ROOM – I’ve learned to pick basic locks, so I can get in. Dotti’s clothes are right inside, but Serah’s wardrobe is probably locked even tighter. I’ll need special skill or clever thinking to get into Serah’s drawers, but they’ll be the fanciest adventuring undies in the guild. Maybe she has some even fancier ones for parties? Speaking of parties, Landi’s underwear could be fun, but I’d need to find it. I’ll need to use my keen eye to hunt for it in her tiny mess of an alclove.

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. 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. I’m slightly closer to being ready to take her on, but I feel like there are a few senses or abilities that might really make this easier to do without raising a riot.

I hear a voice calling out from the alchemist’s lab downstairs, and my decision is made for me.

“Gloria, could you please grab some shedded snake skins while you’re out in the storage shed? We’re almost ready to start the cauldron. Thank you!”

Shiny gems? Shiny gems that focus magic? Shiny gems that focus magic sewn into clothing? In my adventurer’s guild?

It’s more likely than you think.

The alchemist’s lab has only one entrance, and it’s usually closed for safety reasons. It’s a big room with high ceilings and poor lighting, especially when being used for a witches’ brew. Once I’m in, I can camouflage, but I’ll need to sneak in with a better method than “fly in while the door is open.”

Should I:

1. Stake out the door and wait for it to stay propped open long enough to sneak in unnoticed
2. Follow Gloria, the Water Witch, to the storage shed
3. Other

I get the oddest sense that there’s something unearthly watching the entryway to the Alchemist’s Lab. Good thing I decided to train my senses!

Instead of blowing my cover, I go out to the dim storage shed, where Gloria, the Water Witch, is carefully stacking potion ingredients into a box. She’s still looking for shedded snake skins, and she’s having to root through piles of random junk even adventurers don’t want, plus clean-up materials like mops, brooms and rags.

“This place is so gross,” she gags. “I don’t want to know what those red plastic cups have held. Ew, ew, ew.”

Gloria’s ingredient list includes:

-Shedded Snake Skins
-Tuft of sheep’s wool
- Something Old
- Something New
- Something Borrowed
- Cordon Bleu
-Bird Feathers

“Rebecca’s going to get lunch, so there’s the breaded veal,” Gloria says to herself. “I should be able to find the rest in here…”

Maybe I can pass myself off as a taxidermy bird and get thrown in the box. Seems risky, but maybe there’s another way to hitch a ride inside.

In the meantime, perhaps I should get a jump on scouting for trophies? Perhaps I could pluck a few of my feathers to bait her further into the piles of junk, forcing her to crawl through the rags, mops and precipitously balanced piles of junk.

I see a nice jewel necklace that she probably uses to focus some spells, but I have a feeling Gloria has even more secret enchantments hidden under that dress! A quick examination of her clothes shows me I can easily snip anything she’s wearing.

Taranis is now in freebird mode! He can SNIP any of her clothing, TUG on bright green clothing while maintaining stealth, or try to guide Gloria to traps to SNARE her clothing. Light and Dark Green areas are the easiest targets for tugs and snares.

Freebird mode grants the most freedom, but choose wisely! Your actions will affect how alert Gloria is for the rest of the mission. A majority vote guarantees Taranis will act on a SNIP, TUG or SNARE, and anything less than this is up to the bird to act on.

SNIPS do not require any lines to be drawn in FREEBIRD MODE. You can describe them and it’ll work just as well.

Knock her hat over with a gust and drop some feathers in crawlspaces. You need a non-destructive means of scouting out what's under there. Snaring the hem works too.

Snip the top of her hat, then tug it. She'll re-adjust it and spend the rest of the day wondering why it feels wrong.

Lure her to the pail and then gust the stack of red soda cups so she panicks and trips.
No. 1043121 ID: 629f2e


I actually really like the idea of setting her up to fall, so that we can better strike during her period of distraction. I think the quickest way to get her near the pail will be to take the suggestion of >>1043119 and knock the hat over close to it. Make her walk towards the pail to retrieve it, and then spook her so that she trips over it.
No. 1043151 ID: a7fae0

This, but before we do all that, drop some feathers in some crawlspaces so that after she trips, she'll notice the feathers, and she can stay down longer picking them up. Put some under the table, some in the pail...
Careful tho, I dont know how painful plucking feathers are, if they're painful at all.

I know just what to do. First I lay a little groundwork and preen a few itchy, loose feathers and drop them near a crawlspace. It’s no big loss. Then I rev up a small gust of wind, aimed at the cups and pail.

The cups fall over, scattering across the floor.

“Ahh!” Gloria shrieks, jumping back and tripping over a pail. She grasps for something to break her fall, but fails and lands on all fours, her skirt riding up high and her hat flying off.

Never send a clean freak to do dirty work!

Unfortunately for my scouting mission, Gloria quickly grips the hem of her skirt and pulls it down before I get a good look at what’s underneath. However, she’s spotted the bird feathers I’ve laid out going toward the crawl space.

I’m in the rafters right now. I can hop down to the floor and get a better angle, but run the risk of being spotted if she looks backward at the wrong time.

I hop down to the floor and activate my camouflage spell, blending in with the surroundings almost perfectly as long as I don’t move, and no one who knows what they’re doing is looking for me.

The witch glances over her shoulder to look for something, but she doesn’t spot me. I’m so stealthy!

Gloria’s wearing a skimpy white thong. I can’t make out what kind of enchantments are on it, but I don’t see any gems from this angle. From what I understand, witch panties don’t strictly have to have gems sewn into them to be magical. Some witches write runes or other powerful symbols to channel the spell, others use gems, and some stealthy witches use the lace itself as the anchor. Sometimes the threads in the stitching itself can be enchanted, if the threads are made of the right material.

Come to think of it, why would they stop at panties? Maybe their bras are enchanted too.

It seems silly to spend so much time and effort to enchant underwear, but I guess it makes sense if witches want to keep their buffs secret and safe.

Gloria is spending more time on her hands and knees picking up more feathers and rooting around in the shelves of junk for items on her list. Her box is about halfway full, so maybe she’s hallway done.

Should I:

1. Try and take a trophy now by SNIPPING, TUGGING, or SNARING and come back for it later (Stealthiness is in ascending order;)
2. Strategically and stealthily weaken Gloria’s outfit (describe how); or

For now, slow and steady wins the race. No need to rush anything when I’m perfectly stealthy. I carefully align a hanging hanger to SNARE the water witch’s bra strap. Lucky me, she moves right into it and the strap quickly comes undone.

“This place is a death trap,” Glora grumbles. She tugs on her undone strap and finds that it won’t be fixed unless she gets help or takes the entire thing off. With a sigh, she tucks the strap inside her bra to fix later.

As she does so, I catch a glimpse of a well-polished gem between her lacy cups. Aha! These witches do have magic underwear! Now I’m determined to see this through, and quickly stow away inside her potion ingredient box, hiding under my own collected feathers for good measure.

Gloria finishes her errands, scoops everything inside the box and closes the lid without looking too hard. It’s cramped in here, but I’ve got a free ride inside the lab.


Through the box, I hear excited voices, busy with their potion-making. I can still feel some kind of weird, otherworldly presence close by.

Sooner or later, I’m going to have to come out of the box. Probably better to do it soon. I lift a corner of the cardboard box and peek out carefully.

There are four witches total: a wind witch, a fire witch, a water witch, and an earth witch. I see a hazy apparition floating around the cauldron lazily- it’s a ghost. The earth witch turns to the ghost for a moment.

“Abigail, could you shroud me in your coolness for a moment so I can move the cauldron a tad? Thank you!”

With everyone focused on fixing the cauldron’s positioning, I sneak out of the box and flutter up to the rafters, none the wiser.

Anita the wind witch is grinding fine powders together with a mortar and pestle.
Rebecca the fire witch is managing the cauldron’s fire so it doesn’t burn out of control while Lily adjusts the cauldron.
Gloria the water witch is collecting measuring beakers and flasks from the shelves. She hasn’t asked for help fixing her bra strap and it doesn’t seem to concern her that much.
Lily the earth witch is repositioning the cauldron a bit, with the help of Abigail the ghost to keep her cool.

Should I:
A: Scout the witches out from above and/or below? Which witches?
B: Use my magic or tricksiness to mess with a witch or two?

Anita and Gloria are mixing the ingredients carefully for their brew.

“Careful with those,” Anita says. “Alone, they’re just a bunch of rhyming doodads, but mixed together, they’re explosive.”

“Explosive?!” Gloria flinches.

“Only mildly,” Anita says. “Just enough to flare up and singe whoever’s closest, maybe burn your hat a bit. Since we four are the ones who prepared the potion ingredients, the fire won’t harm us… buuuuuut that means that I’ll have to measure everything out again.”

Aha! If I’m sneaky, I can use Lightning Magic to cause tiny, fiery explosions! It sounds like the witches won’t be hurt.

Meanwhile, Lily finishes repositioning the cauldron over the fire.

“Goodness,” Lily says. “Even with Abigail’s help, the heat is quite intense.”

“Ah, a little cauldron sauna’s good for your health!” Rebecca, the fire witch, adds.

“Easy for you to say,” Lily replies. “Not all of us are used to such hot temperatures.”

“Well, you’d better get used to it fast,” Rebecca warns. “It’s about to get real hot in here.”

“Ew,” Gloria says. “I say we use a cooling spell, or have Abigail cool all of us.”

“We can’t break concentration,” Anita says. “That, and I don’t want any of us casting spells that might cool down the cauldron. We’ve got to keep the heat up. Abigail can only cool one of us at a time, and she’s not strong enough to keep it up for long.”

“Can’t we just keep the door open? For a draft?”

“Have you seen the types of characters running around in this guild?” Lily bites her lip. “I heard an alchemist left the door open when she was preparing a mutagen, and it went horribly wrong when a fairy blundered in without warning.”

“Just say no to random encounters,” Rebecca says. “Keep that lab door closed and locked.”

“So we’ll just have to live with this unbearable heat and fan ourselves uselessly?” Gloria sighs. “This is why normal witches have familiars.”

Aha! I could fly down and offer to help fan my wings for them!

Well, that or I could use a tiny bit of wind magic to make sure one witch in particular gets the hottest air in the room. Heh.

Heat up Gloria. She has water magic, so we might be able to manipulate her into using some of her water magic to cool off.

Also, water conducts electricity, so it'll be useful and easier to cause explosions with our electricity once we get some moisture in here

also, See if you can sneakfully position yourself somewhere where it looks like Anita and/or Rebecca is using their wind/heat magic so the blame can be put on them for heating Gloria up if they get suspicious from heated wind.

I could be helpful, but where’s the fun in that?

Time to mess with the fussiest witch: Gloria. She’s already sweating, even though she’s the lightest-dressed of the group. All it takes is a minute of making sure she gets a few wafts of extra-hot air to get her to shuck her gloves and start fanning herself with her hat as hard as she can. Another minute after that and she’s surreptitiously glancing at the other witches, looking for a chance to sneak a spell to cool herself down.

Meanwhile, Abigail the ghost, is assisting Lily by cooling her down so she can work close to the cauldron. At the same time, she’s being extra helpful by fluttering Lily’s skirt and helping loosening her black bow to cool her down. Anita is getting distracted by all of this, though she’s trying to be subtle about her staring. Abigail is clearly enjoying all of this, and only when Lily gives a loud eep! does Abigail float away and give Rebecca a turn to cool down.

Seeing her chance to cast a spell unnoticed, Gloria summons a small cloud of ice-cold mist and lets it wash over her. Unfortunately, the mist doesn’t stay put. It wafts along the floor and reaches the extra-hot cauldron flames, and with a horrid squelching noise, it douses the all-important fire keeping the potion at the right temperature.

Everyone disliked that.

“Really?!” Rebecca fumes. “You couldn’t hold out for ten more minutes?”

“Now we have to start over,” Lily says solemnly.

“Start over?” Gloria’s mouth drops open. “But the room is going to be be even hotter with all the steam!”

“Says the girl who made it! Just deal with it,” Rebecca glowers. “And don’t even think of bailing on us. This is a team effort.”

“Calm down, everyone,” Anita says. “Gloria’s just not used to the heat. Um… if it’s really that hot, Gloria… you can, um, lighten up if you really need to. The door’s locked.”

“Are you serious?” Gloria flushes. “Are you all really suggesting that?”

“I don’t mind,” Lily says.

“If it’ll stop you from ruining the fire again, be my guest,” Rebecca says.

Gloria pauses, considering for a moment. She looks around the lab, fans herself with her hat, then grits her teeth and slips her dress down to her waist, somewhat more comfortable.

The ghostly apparition coalesces in front of Gloria and gives her the thumbs-up.

“Shove it, Abigail,” Gloria says.

The witches resume work on their potion, and the room is even hotter than before. I have tons of options, especially now that Abigail, is fully visible. I can heat one witch up just like before, and she’ll probably join Gloria in lightening up. Abigail might even help another witch cool down. Finally, I can set off some potion ingredients in a small explosion.

This next move will determine what trophies I might be able to snag.

Anita, Gloria, Anita

Gloria is hot enough, and her outfit is in a precarious enough state that a bit of tugging by Abigail might be enough to expose more. If her panties are made visible, then we might be able to go for a clean snip on both them and the bra, acquiring two magical undergarments.

As they point out, Anita is a wind witch, so her undergarments might be of special interest to you. Focus your energy on getting at least her bra or panties exposed (preferably the latter given the name of the quest she originates)

As for focus, I say that we should ensure that we can snip at Gloria's underwear. Getting a matching set of bra and panties would be ideal, as they make for more impressive trophies when you have them together. Getting something from Anita is a side objective, because even if it might be something you could use, you're already awesome and don't need magical panties to be great.

Although! If getting Anita's panties would immediately open up opportunities to do more here, then shift priorities towards them. This would be a mission worth breaking stealth for: Steal the panties and buffet them with wind magic while stealing more trophies!

I decide to heat Anita up this time around; it’s worth finding out if her underwear is as well- enchanted as Gloria’s. Wind magic is my thing, after all, and I could probably figure out how to use any enchantments she’s put into them. It would be silly for me to wear panties, but maybe I could get someone to re-set the magical focus (the gem, embroidery, etc.).

Anita soon heats up and has to take a breather. She removes her hat and gloves, and loosens the ties on her top.

“I’m turning up the heat on the cauldron again,” Lily says.

“Good.” Rebecca glares at Gloria. “Abigail, can you help Gloria and make sure things go smoothly?”

“I’m fine!” Gloria insists, but she’s still fanning herself a suspicious amount. “There’s no need to- ah!”

Abigail swoops in and makes sure Gloria’s appropriately cool. She’s very thorough.

Gloria’s panties aren’t as enchanted as her bra’s gem, but they still have a good amount of magic.

Thanks to Abigail, Gloria’s dress is askew. I can swoop in and snip both her bra and panties off, and even get out undetected if there’s enough chaos in the lab.

And speaking of chaos, I send a tiny spark of lightning magic into Anita’s potion ingredients.

There’s a larger explosion than I expected. The shockwave blows Anita’s loosened top open, exposing a plain polka-dotted strapless bra. It’s only moderately magical. Her panties, however…

I’ve got to have them. The wind magic is so strong, if I got ahold of what’s powering those panties, I’d be unstoppable! Raelynn would be in awe of what I could do in a fight!

I have an ominous feeling about what might happen if I decide to go for Anita’s panties, but who cares? They’re magpie-themed!

Should I:
1. Stay stealthy and get Gloria’s bra and panties, and a minor trophy from Anita (hat, gloves)
2. Try to stay stealthy and steal Anita’s panties too
3. Break stealth and go straight for Anita’s panties, and use their awesome power to cause chaos and take as many trophies as possible

There's just too much potential here, we gotta do it. If this is gonna be our last mission of the thread, then let's go out with a bang!

If we can pull this off and have escape, the most likely outcome of this will be Anita trying to get her undergarments back. And if you keep them in your room, then that means she's gonna have to deal with Rae. That is hilarious, and is so worth the risk.

If there was ever a time to go wild, this would be it.

I know I should play it safe, but I just can’t resist. Those panties are powerful. They’re pretty. They’re pretty powerful. But most importantly, they have little birds on them.

It’s stupid to risk the wrath of not one, but four witches. It’s so, so stupid. But… If I can snag those ultra-special panties and keep ahold of them, no one will ever doubt my sneaky, stealy prowess, and I’ll be able to use their wind magic all for myself. Maybe. I’ll work out the details later. For now, I take a moment to plan my attack.

The witches are distracted, my prizes are picked. If there’s a time to go wild, this is it!

I unleash a great gust of wind and fan the flames of the fire way, way higher than they’re meant to be. Rebecca lets out a shout of confusion and tries to manage the cauldron heat. Anita, meanwhile, is adjusting her top, leaving her skirt flapping and the strings of her panties unguarded.

I strike!

“Aaah!” Anita shrieks, clamping her hands down to her skirt. “Not again!”

“What’s wrong?” Lily asks. She looks up does a double-take as I soar up to the rafters with Anita’s panties. “Oh, no! A bird! Shoo it out!”

“No, don’t let it out! It’s got my panties!”

“Maybe we can coax it down?” Lily says. “Here, birdie, birdie! Please don’t poop in our potion…”

“That’s not just a bird,” Anita says. “It’s a crow, and it’s a thief! I won’t let it get away! Abigail, grab my underwear! Aah! No, not my bra! Grab my panties!”

A ghostly presence descends on me. Now or never! I tap into the wind magic of the magpie panties and unleash a typhoon of pure chaos.

“What’s happening?” Gloria shouts. “Anita, are you doing that? Is this your Wrath of Aeolus spell?”

“No way!” Anita shouts, barely audible over the din. “Where is it?! I can’t believe this! Abigail!”

The ghostly presence descends again, and I launch myself off the rafters to avoid it: right toward the blessedly bountiful earth witch. I dive low and snag the ribbon tied around Lily’s neck. It comes undone easily- and as it does, the ghostly hands try to grasp me, but I slip away, and Abigail only seizes the back of Lily’s shirt. Two buttons pop right off as the blouse goes tight, and Lily throws her hands over her cavernous cleavage with a yelp. Even in the howling wind, she focuses entirely on covering up the gap in her blouse instead of keeping her skirt down, giving everyone a clear view of her white silk french-cut panties and the garters beneath them.

“Stop the wind, or else this cauldron is gonna overheat!” Rebecca calls out. “I’ve got my hands full here making sure it doesn’t blow.”

“This is no time for puns,” Anita says. “Come on, girls! Gloria, Lily, Abigail, let’s stop the madness!”

Abigail descends on me again, and I get ready to dive once more.

“Wait, wait, wait,” Gloria says, trying to pull her dress up. “I’m not ready ye-“

I direct all the wind straight at Anita and Lily, and they stumble back into Gloria. Anita’s flailing grip catches on Gloria’s thong and whips it down her legs, eliciting a high-pitched shriek from the water witch. She bends over to fix them, but as she does, I swoop down and dive-bomb right over her bra clasp. Abigail once again grabs not me, but the witch below me, and Gloria’s bra comes undone. She whipsaws back up and stumbles around, flustered and flush-cheeked.

I quickly snatch her panties off the floor and pull off a truly incredible feat of agility to snag the remaining bra strap right off Gloria’s arm. I’ve got all I can carry- now to make good my escape!

I end the wind spell and send a big jolt of lightning magic into Anita’s cauldron ingredients, blowing up and filling the room with acrid smoke.

The witches are coughing and wheezing. Lily, eyes watering, fumbles for a vent of some kind- and just as I expected, she grabs the door handle. The lab door flies open.

Anita conjures a gust of wind to clear the air, but it’s too late to clear the air before Lily’s mistake can be corrected.

“No!” Anita says. “Don’t let it-“

I’m free! I rocket out the door, my prizes tight in my claws. The last thing I see is Gloria standing in the lab, quietly asking the other three witches to close the door, please, before someone sees in, thank you.

Lily lets out an eep and slams the lab door shut to give Gloria some decency.
