Well anyway ask her what the disagreement was about, without sounding judgemental. It's obviously unfortunate your father isn't here to witness your reunion but at the same time you must respect how she feels.

Then again, DO you respect that? I mean given your views on love I don't know quite how favorably you'd look on divorce.

I don't know how to feel about this. Rather shocked, I suppose. I always figured my parents would stay together. They were my example.
But you're right, I will have time to think about it later.

"Is he well?"
"Last time I saw him, yes. My, you've changed so much."
"You too, mother. Why is your hair black?"
"Because.. I'm in mourning, Ridder. Or was. I lost my husband and my son."
"I see."
"But maybe now that I found you I can let it grow into blonde again, hm?"
"I hope so, mother. Are you comfortable telling me why you and father split up?"
"It's.. complicated, Ridder. How have you been?"
"I have been around. Did you split up because of the Knight Blades?"

Her expression changes abruptly.

"I had gone to protect the prince. I covered his escape through the servant's entrance."
"My dear dear Ridder. I am so proud of you. You have such a strong sense of duty."
"Mother.. What are the Knight Blades?"

She sighs for a moment, and puts her hands on my shoulders.

"We were going to tell you, dear.. well.. when you would be this age. Your father and I, we were not really mercenaries when we got knighted by lord Malto. We were agents from the Knight Blades. Our time in North Piacevol was supposed to be much shorter, but.. well.. we had a little unforeseen miracle."
"A miracle?"

The only way you can look at something like this is with the same total objectivity of the Knight Blades themselves.

There is a saying that "Absolute power corrupts absolutely". Malto may have been benevolent, but how would his son have ruled? His son's son? How long would it take for a military coup or a diplomatic rival disrupting the balance of power to come in and wreck everything? Now not only does that man have a terrible agenda but he's now the leader of the largest and strongest nation on the planet, subjugating millions of innocent people.

The Knight Blades take it on themselves to, instead of let time run it's long and slow course and weed out everything itself, act expediently and remove any platform that could be used as a stronghold for either side. People as a whole can't exactly be trusted in that respect given the numerous conflictions of ideology every race has by default.

Their actions are all in the name of neutrality, but their motivations could be anything; either noble or unjust. They're simply a nanny organization, removing all the risk of complete and total misery at the expense of the chance at total prosperity.

It's all a question of how much you're willing to risk for 'Good'.

You really should ask her something like this. Find out exactly what the prerequisites for snipping are. I mean, does simply growing large mean you must be cut down? That's stupid. Gardens don't work that way, and balance doesn't work that way. So just ask for more clarification because if her reasoning IS that stupid then we have a problem and it's name is YOUR MOM.

I feel the energy fade from my body in a single moment. Just before I fall to my knees my mother catches me. She gently presses me to chest.
The steel armor is cold, but her touch is comforting.

"But.. everything you taught me about loyalty and duty.. I've learned it all from you."
"And you learned well. Those just weren't the people it was meant for."
"But the Knight Blades.. Doesn't.. Doesn't being able to destroy any one who gets too powerful make the Knight Blades too powerful themselves?"
"No.. The Knight Blades never try to control anything, my dear. They tend to the world like their garden: Any flower can flourish as they want, but when it begins to choke others it becomes weed. Malto's aggressive diplomacy threatened to absorb all of the surrounding civilizations. It had to be done."

This actually makes sense. You can grow a whole tree in a garden and not have it wreck the balance, but weeds will destroy anything else growing there.

I guess it's not that Malto was too big, but that his power was suffocating others.

...of course, that doesn't sound like Malto at all, from what we know.
...actually wait, just how much do we know?

You should ask for more information. She said herself that power alone isn't enough to warrant 'clipping', so then what the hell DID Malto do to sign his own death warrant?
No. 122090 ID: c17fb2

So... the Fangs.

They were out to get the Knight Blades. Because the Knight Blades were... oof. They were the ones that fucked everything up? White Fang would've wanted that. White Fang was good, and seemingly shared the same views of peace and unity that the late Lord Malto had. But the Fangs themselves were violent and mostly crude, save for the few exceptions.

But, wow... Ridder, you were raised well. Raised to believe in truth and nobility, the good of people. Your parents have turned out to be very, very different from your perceptions of them, but that does not change you-- you were the best of them. You gladly would've given your life for young Prince Muschio Malto.

And you would do well to hold that position. You need to find Muschio and tell him the truth, no matter the cost. He needs to know the real story behind the death of his benevolent father. It will change his outlook and goals forever-- and believe me, it will be for the better.

I agree with this man. Neutrality means nothing, what the people want is to be happy. A good tuler would do that. IE: Malto. What's the point? Kingdoms and powers arent vegetation, as far as I know. This is all just sophisms. Leave her. You are now at war with the KNight Blades and therefore with your mother.

Perhaps the Knight Blades have a current enemy, one invisible but no less dangerous. It would be they that move against anything resembling the Knight Blades actions... We should ask about that.

By destroying Malto, she's sprouted chaos. Is chaos good? Is chaos neutral and balanced? The Knight Blades have fucked it all.
When you kill a great government, it will separate in different factions. It makes war and all, just like the Roman Empire from our world.
No. 122099 ID: 934ef5

I don't think so, it wasn't Maltos ways that were the problem, it was how big it got. Maybe it is unavoidable that it became so popular, but until that is the case I think the Knight Blades aren't likely to act.
No. 122100 ID: e75a2f

Oh, so it was to prevent a cultural takeover. Makes a lot more sense.

Really you guys, you need to stop looking at what's right in front of your face and think about the far-reaching consequences of what would/could have happened as a result. You need to exercise some foresight if you want to understand what's going on.

Malto may have been peaceful, but it sounds like he still forcibly absorbed other peoples into his own nation to achieve his ideals. That's what 'Aggressive Diplomacy' would entail. It sounds like Malto was bordering on the 'Brave New World' outcome; yes it's a utopia but is anyone really happy? Obviously if a revolution was sparked people weren't.

No organization is powerful enough to change the balance of power without a good portion of the people feeling the same way. In that light they're just a rallying force. They saw people wanted Malto gone, so they gave a little push and sent the revolution on it's way.

I know that I am flawed. You have told me countless of times, again and again. If a romantic relationship will remotely resemble the one we have then I will have to face life without a family.

Immediate plans:

1. Ask about the Maltos. She said earlier that power and popularity alone isn't enough to warrant the intervention Knight Blades, that it takes more than a flower to simply grow large to warrant trimming. So given that you swore fierce loyalty to King Malto -- and given also your close friendship with his son -- I think you should know exactly what is it that the Maltos did that warranted their end at the hands of the KB.

2. Once/if that's cleared up satisfactorily, I advise you introduce your mom to each of your allies here in the base, see what she thinks of them. I'm sure they'd be pleased as punch to meet her, too.

"How did you become part of the Knight Blades?"
"We searched for them. Ridarre and I were disheartened veterans. We had seen enough war to know that good and evil are relative. We asked ourselves what purpose life had, what fight was still worth fighting. Then, when we hit the trail of the Knight Blades, they approached us. They presented us with a new duty far above us and everyone else: To preserve the balance of the world. To give everyone a chance to live. The seven Knights circle their globe and listen to the voices of the world, then send their Blades to cut where it is needed."
"But then why lord Malto? How did he keep others from living? We have seen him do nothing but improve living conditions."
"He did so with the cost of their culture, Ridder. Their way of life, their traditions, the very foundation of their civilization were replaced with that what lord Malto believed in, and he enforced it with an iron fist. Perhaps he never meant harm, and he did believe that he was helping the people.. but the road to hell is paved with good intentions."
"But that.. That does not make the destruction of an empire, of a great man, a good thing."
"Ridder, it has been a long time since I stopped believing in good and bad. The Knight Blades even more so. They do naught but tend to the garden of life."

There is a long pause. I hang my head.

"It just.. It does not feel right, mother. Nothing does."

She gets up from her chair and brings her hands to my head. She brings her lips to my forehead, as she used to do when I was a child.

"I know, Ridder. You will grow to accept it."

I somehow doubt she is a spy (at least... not on Ridder in particular)... their first meeting was too.. -erh- happenstance, for this to be a reasonable possibility.

>"It just.. It does not feel right, mother. Nothing does."

There's two points of view here, Ridder.

You can choose to accept she's right. This would mean that there is nothing good in this world. Nothing bad. Murder would hold just as much meaning as tending to the poor and ill. There would be little point in striving for anything other than self-serving goals. You could become the greatest man in the world, and only have to worry about those like the Knight Blades trying to cut you down. Your word and your own conviction would be all you could rely on.

Or... you can decide that she is wrong. You can decide to prove to her that there are such things as good and bad in this world. The path will be hard and fraught with things to make one question one's judgment if this is decided. If one becomes too zealous, the trap of becoming unemotional, impartial, and ruthless like the Helianthus arises.

Which way will you believe?
No. 122615 ID: a1041c

Yeah, this.
That's about it.
No. 122616 ID: 8ce2bf

But to strike down Lord Malto, are you then not giving him the chance to live? What of the others he employed, what of my best friend, the prince Muschio? Who are the Knight Blades to play god with the lives of this world? What makes their judgment so righteous, so pure? The Knight Blades seem just as susceptible to corruption as any other group, but have illusions of grandeur, they think they have the right to twist the world into how they think it should be.
No. 122620 ID: 632862

It sounds like Malto was indeed doing some things wrong. Perhaps if he made allies without interfering with their cultures, the Knight Blades would've stayed out of it.

Maybe we should just stop discussing the issue though. It's not like anyone is going to change their mind here. She doesn't really want to convince you, and I don't think we're going to convince her.

As far as this decision I would suggest that you remain impartial as to what to do. Right now, we are poised on the edge of a very dangerous choice. Aid Lord Muschio, Aid the Knight Blades, Strike out on your own...

The Knights Blade is bull crap. Why do they think they were chosen to tend the garden? Why do they think their secret society is any better than the weeds they say they are getting rid of? What have they done? They have snuffed out a new grand society before it could come to term. They want to preserve culture. Who are they to destroy an entirely new culture before it has a chance to work or fail? I say fuck them and their over inflated scene of self importance. They are nothing more than a weed in the garden that keeps all the other flowers from growing powerful enough to destroy them.
No. 122628 ID: 45be60

...and who are we to say that Malto was really such a great man? we were a child, hardly able to judge such things objectively, and our parents were not, as we once thought, his loyal subjects. Perhaps this bears additional thought before we go off on a tear about how evil the Knight Blades are.

You're right. She is not trying to convince me, as much of a shock it may be to me personally. If I were to argue with her I would be no better than any faction who forces their believes on others.
From what she said about how she and my father ended up as Knight Blades agents, I hear that she had these worries as well.
If I want to do things differently, be it good or bad.. or neutral.. I must not make hasty decisions.
It is..
It is like you say regarding relationships. I should not be too quick to judge. There is a lot to learn and a lot to experience before I can consider myself wise.

I have been stiff and arrogant in my ways. Now is a good time to try and put that behind me.

All we really have heard of Malto's reign is accounts from his son, a fanatic admirer, and a duty-bound knight. Perhaps we were blind in our duty. She says Malto was choking out those around him like a weed, and even Muschio mentioned that the revolutionists claimed much the same.

Perhaps Malto was not the grand and benevolent king we thought him to be. Perhaps he deserved what happened.

Oh for crying out loud if she was a spy there wouldn't have been any identity confusion at the start. Besides, who cares? The Knight Blades aren't interested in Ridder, he's not oppressing other cultures or anything. That unknown knight that did the eye thing was part of the Helianthus paladin group.

Hi Ritari.

We're glad that Ridder found you. He's a right mess, you know. He is far too serious, and is hyper-critical of himself. I am excited you are here as you seem to have a great calming effect on him.

Things that Ridder did not mention are that he has an insane gnoll locked up in his base awaiting Muschio Malto's arrival to do... something with her. We don't really understand what, but Ridder seems to think that Muschio can fix this gnoll(who is known as Geppa).

In addition, we voices are a chronic condition of Ridder's, apparently something that came up during his adolescence and has been a bane on his existence since then. We tried to warn him at the riverbanks that you were his mother, but apparently he was overcome with finding another Northwalker. Ridder has a penchant for ignoring the sanest of our suggestions and choosing those of us who have little or no common sense, following through on their harebrained schemes, then getting upset with us for making said suggestions.

That said, he is a noble individual whose life has been unfairly hard, and when he succeeds he does so quite well and is deserving of a far better self-esteem than he has. Please help reinforce his view of himself, and help him conquer his stunning naivete.

So many at the same time! My my, Ridder must have to focus so hard for you to be useful.

Oh yes, I know about his condition, though not as much as a worried mother would like to. He has been in therapy a few times. Secretly, of course. It didn't do him much good. He described it as his condition working against the therapy's methods, but there was no alternative available.
...Now just a moment.
Are you saying that you are those voices he hears? Well, I certainly did not expect it to be this bad--
..But that means that this ring is just a communicater.

Ridder, dear, are you trying to spy on your mother?
Perhaps I should keep this ring with to keep an eye on you instead?

Greetings Lady Ritari.. we are Ridder's personal advisers and perhaps a symptom of his seriously introspective nature.

However... quite a few of us are -erh- deviants as well so please try to filter our ideas through your own judgment.

Just to let you know I for one was against the idea of wooing a strange woman who's face Ridder had not yet seen. You may think of me as the... voice of reserved suspicion.

Also.. just to clarify (as others would try to mislead you)... no you son has shown no sign of homosexual behavior... he is simply more comfortable in the company of fellow warriors than in the usually more precarious battlefield of the heart. That and he harbors an undiminished respect and sense of duty for the Prince Muschio.

I'm not entirely sure Ridder can see things that go on through the ring. It would seem that when we speak to someone else, it gives Ridder a temporary respite from our many voices. In the past he has not acknowledged our actions with others until a report has come to him, as far as I can tell. He never stops us in mid-transmission with someone even if we're making them do objectionable things.

Perhaps if he focuses hard, he can see you, but I doubt Ridder is the sort to do such a thing.

You can bet that the more unscrupulous of us will tell him things that have happened, although sometimes we get competent enough to keep something from him that he needn't know.

Again, I ask: How are you?

Ritari, the ring doesn't work so much as a spying device, rather as as a link for voice communication. I guess you should be glad that you can't see what goes on directly, however. Some of the things that Ridder does in his spare time when hes alone...

Oh, I see now. Instead of using the communicator to spy on the other side, he just uses it to funnel you out of his head and thus is only able to use it properly when he concentrates. Hm..
Most understandable. I hate to imagine what it's like to experience different minds at the same time.

But then, I suppose that's exactly what he's going through, isn't it.
My poor little Ridder. If only I could have given you a more stable youth.

But that's nothing to lament about to you, of course.

We're not quite sure. We very rarely get to spend time with our hirelings except when they're on duty.

Uh, well... Ridder doesn't do fun, and... I guess people mostly work around here. Lately there's been some intimate bonding between some of the group, but I'll not go into that unless you want me to. Suffice to say it's sweet.

Ridder didn't want you to know about the prisoner he has, and for the right reasons, but I think you might be the only one who can help her, as Ridder really does not seem to be one given for empathy.

You however, being a mother, might be able to give her what she needs. To give you a scope of the situation, she's a crazed and sadistic gnoll who grew up in the Fang's mercenary company with the only parentage being given to her by, understandably, the most crazed and sadistic fang of the group. It's only natural she'd have grown up twisted. As a mother, you might be able to do something for her; i don't know.

I'd imagine Ridder wanted to keep her hidden from you as seeing a woman bound in a remote location of the base is not a very good image out of context, but it's for safety. She's sadistic and likes to attack people, so it's not exactly in anyone's best interest to let her roam freely.

If anyone could do something to help her, it'd probably be someone with parenting experience.
No. 123363 ID: e814ad

Well, it all depends on your idea of fun; there are several options to choose from.

Terva, the large gnoll fellow can usually be seen with Nekraska, doing woodwork or various carpentry things.

Petal and Grek can normally be found in the girl's dormitory doing some alchemical work or other. They really have made some great bounds in the field of science.

If you can find Iesgip, (she may be in the kitchen preparing a meal, or out gathering herbs) she can provide an interesting insight on alchemy, and many other household skills. She does get somewhat easily flustered however, yet it is amusing how formal she can be with her militaristic personality.

Finally, if you just want to relax, there is a large bath in the back with hot running water.

Well, uh, you might want to look around a bit, things might be around the base, but we don't get much of a view, usually, our "sight" being with Ridder when he's on a mission, or through the Ring when someone's doing something.

Check Nakraska, he's a pretty cool guy, and could make wood board games I guess. Get a chess board, or something less lame like a Settlers of Catan set.

Actually, I'm pretty sure it was a normal bar, with one gay guy. He then pretended to be a waiter at a gay bar to slip the potion that turned Sticks into a kitty. What's hilarious is that she thought it was his gay bar.
No. 123384 ID: c593ec

I don't think a dancer's stage is a long-term goal. There's got to be other things we can make that would be more entertaining and recreational. Something that doesn't require one person to work to entertain everyone else.
No. 123386 ID: 2dd482

also do you remember the candle lady in Malto's keep, Nan? Get a nice peasants dress like hers and tote around it lighting the candles. Surely the reminder of the simpler times will calm Ridder and put him more at ease.
No. 123387 ID: c85bc8


Dear Lady, trust that "boys and girls", in whatever constellation, have already found ways to relax and recreate... or should we say procreate?

However, your addition to the HQ shall be regarded with greatest interest. If you require help, you should talk to Nakraska, he is a very skilled craftsmen and will surely lend a hand.
And with lending a hand I merely mean helping you, not something like you had in mind with your son's hand... Not that it was your fault.

A mind full of sport, have you? I'm sure Nakraska can be a dear and make some rackets and weave a shuttle, then everyone can have a game of badminton outside when they feel like it. I'll see if Iesgip can make a ball from the hide of the next animal she hunts.
But all that doesn't leave much for mommy to do, now does it?

So what was with back at the river? Are you like that with every guy you meet, every Leferran or just a girl with needs or what? It seems a little odd to first see you like that, and then see you like this. Is this air of proper nobility one that fades once you find a nice young man to lay with?

So the room will have comfortable couches, a bookcase, a table and a variety of tabletop games.
I'll have Nakraska make the furniture and Iesgip make the pillows, and maybe a few nice carpets for on the floor and the walls.
Oh yes, this all sounds very good.

"Nakraska~ Iesgip~ Would you please come over here?"
"Yes, ma'am?"
"Whacha need?"
"I have two lists here of things I'd like you to make. Just drop what you are currently doing to make sure these things get done by tonight so we can surprise Ridder with it~"
"M-ma'am, yes, ma'am."
"No problem."

I myself shall go to Sepia Town for the games and books.

Oh my my, so the incident at the river is still fresh in everyone's mind. The reason I may seem so different now is because being a mother is my top priority~
I never really expected to find Ridder again. I may have had a feeling - perhaps a mother's instinct - that he was alive, but I had accepted his death.
And then after years of solitude this handsome young man rises from the river and claims that he will take me 'home'.. My my, it does sound rather ridiculous now, doesn't it? I'm certainly not like that with every one I meet. I just felt so at peace with him, and he had such a strong charm about him.

No. 123456 ID: 2dd482

do you still want to lay with him? The time he spent with you before he found out was the only time he's felt so at home and so peaceful and relaxed since.. ever? I guess. He's never felt that way before.

But then, Ridder has his very own charm.

Do I still want to lay with him, even now the reason for our acceptance of eachother's embrace has been made clear?
To deny ones demons is to encourage them, so I won't deny that part of me does. But would I actually do so, then he would no longer be my little boy.
No, I am happy I found my dear Ridder. I don't want to lose him again.

I think you're looking at this pretty rationally. Your less mentionable desires are just a natural reaction to finding another one of your rare kin, augmented of course by the loss of your partner and the familiarity that most relationships take a long time to build on. It's good that you realize the distinction, as it's most likely just a muddled reaction to the reunion.

But hey, question: We know you're not the kind who'll just jump after the first guy she sees -- we've established that was under special circumstances. But hey, you're single, you're a woman with needs. Maybe you should consider seeking a new boyfriend, significant other, or even potential husband?
Depending on how complex your desires, of course.

I don't think Ridder had a happy childhood.

No. 123492 ID: ee213f

When he spoke with Muschio, he thought of his childhood. Playing around with him, etc. So if he smiled while thinking of his childhood, he mustn't have had a sad childhood.

I guess he's just like that. It's his personality. Maayybe schizoid.

Really? I never suspected him to have problems with hearing voices in his head.
I digress.
Ridder seems to always mention his military training as a child. Perhaps the problem lies there.

On another note, Ms. Rittari, do you still have anything that links you permanently to the Knight Blades? Oath or some such?
No. 123500 ID: c16184
File 126506973982.png - (81.84KB , 700x700 , c21-34.png )

Oh, my dear little Ridder.. He used to be such a happy child. So polite and wellbehaved, always there to make people feel good.
Then when his training begun it all stopped. He was still so polite and everyone loved to be around him, but he simply began to isolate himself. If it wasn't for his friend Muschio he may have simply stopped going outside.
How many times have I tried to cheer Ridder up, and told him to smile more..
Sweet little Ridder..
What have I done wrong? Should I have quit the Blades back then and freed up more time for you? Maybe you would have smiled more..

Alas, so the past has gone by and I can not change it now.

I haven't quite opened myself for a new partner yet. I was still in mourning for my husband and son until now. I greatly doubt I will meet anyone who will swoop my off my feet like Ridder mistakingly did.

My oath to the Knight Blades is still in effect. I have.. quite simply deserted.
I don't want to give the Knight Blades much thought any more. I've put it behind me.

No. 123501 ID: c593ec

Very well, let's not worry about romance and pleasure for the time being then.

I should warn you about Sepia Town though. Normally someone of your capability shouldn't have to be warned of a seedy area like this, since I'm sure you've had to deal with the shady underbelly of the world often enough. But there's been rioting and prison breaks lately, so it's important you make sure the place is under control before you enter.

...also, it's under control by the Helianthus, if it's under control at all. I don't know if that's a problem for you, but you should know.
