He fiddles with the burnt ends of his hair.

Maria, a young maiden of thirteen, is told to do the laundry. This horribly thought out chore was revealed to be the excuse of her mother, the Queen, to inform her of the existence of her twelve brothers.
Maria's insane father only wished for a daughter, and would have killed her siblings. Ever calm, Maria decided to locate her brothers, bringing her childhood friend and cousin Walter for company.
Their paths crossed with a powerful demon that is known as The Raven, and all but Walter's left arm was taken to be devoured.
Maria walked on in a horrified daze and came upon a bridge, under which was nailed a bitter yet strangely polite demon.
Promising to provide him Walter's arm and the kingdom's protection, he became Maria's replacement companion and recieved the name Tom.

Tom and Maria enter The Queen's Keg, a bar owned by a Forest Folk man named Rhell. They learn the existence of Woman-Eater Forest, as well as a marriage taking place between a Winter Folk and a Human in Halland, causing the town to be barricaded.
The two suit up, Maria in a gender-disguising outfit, and leave for the forest.
Upon arriving, however, they are attacked by two of her brothers, Cain and Abel. Maria learns all of her brothers live there, along with a man named Vandis and the demon he is raising.
Her brothers refuse to come back, so Maria returns to her castle, bringing along Tom if only to fulfill her promise.

When home, Maria is plagued with a vision of Walter falling to his death, possibly instigated by The Raven, purely for amusement. She is soon comforted by Tom's clumsy attempts at socializing with her and the appearance of a tenacious eighteen-year-old suitor named Hadrian.
Maria sees a young Winter Folk she has seen before in visions interested in training her recently uncontrolled scrying after she sorted through her suitors.
Neither events took place, however, due to an increased focus on "Princess Beam" causing Maria to explode with light.
In a conversation with Maria's insane father, Tom reveals she was concieved through a crystal that almost always births females, with the side effect of dangerous skin conditions. Angry with her own condition, Maria set off on a new quest to cure herself of it. She brings Hadrian along as well.
The trio go to Woman-Eater Forest to seek help from Maria's brothers, but only find Vandis' young RedEye Demon child, Leral.
Leral guides them to his home, where Vandis eventually arrives and discusses their quest. Vandis brushes them off with a suggestion to go to the White City to acquire medicine. His quickness to avoid them was revealed to be his discomfort with the pile of corpses in their cellar, which he uses to feed Leral.

An explosion in the tunnels underneath the forest wake the three in the middle of the night. Tom managed to save Maria from harm, but the danger to her person triggered a blind rage in Hadrian that led him to eradicate the culprits. Perhaps already traumatized by previous events, Maria thought little of it.
Cain and Abel escort the group out of the forest and to an enormous hot springs establishment.
Maria discovered an apparantly blind child locked in a room. When he became violent, her panic caused her to learn how to delve into people's minds. Not expecting it, she fell down the staircase. The child did the same, but managed to injure himself with his weapon.
After this situation, Maria learned a new ability and a new skill.

Since then, the three traveled with nothing of interest occurring-

We fought a bear and ate it.

Besides a ferocious battle with a bear.

We're currently situated in the forest surrounding The White City, which is apparently closed off.

It doesn't look closed off to me, but Tom assures us that it is 'locked up like a starving Hilldragon with Heceydotis'. I'm not sure I want to know what that means.

"Alright, listen closely. The main thing about these guys is that they are insufferable pricks. They make up advanced technology and complicated architecture just so they have a reason to gloat. These guys are straight-laced and act like a military regime. And they fight like one too. If you screw up, they will make a serenade of despair of which the only instrument is your screams and begs for mercy."
"So stick to the plan, alright? Enter through the back garden on the upper level, and try to look for a guy with a scar running from his jaw to his neck. Tell him you're with me."
"What do I do?" Hardian enquires.

I decide not to mention the perilous climb.

I'm sure I can manage.

Honestly, the White City is not very white. Such things come with age, I suppose.

I'm assuming he meant Hadrian would decimate the entire population. No less disconcerting.
I never thought of Tom as attractive. He just seems kind of awkward and angry. Maybe if he smiled more.

Now that I think about it, I wonder what Tom thinks of me? He's only tagging along so he doesn't get attacked, but on this new quest, he seems much more helpful.
No. 242217 ID: dc80ab

he is starting to like you. maybe not LIKE you like you. but he definitely sees you as a friend.

"What's wrong?"

Leap over to that other tree branch thingy. Better yet, position yourself so that Hadrian is grabbing you by your legs and have him throw you over in a swinging motion, but first, have him build enough momentum so you can go flying into the sky with your girlish light frame. Trust me, this will totally work.
No. 242248 ID: 059120

It honestly didn't sound like it. ...Why are we sneaking in again? And not, like, walking the in front and asking around?
No. 242325 ID: 7a8549

Wait, why doesn't he think the plan is thought out?

Also, ask him how he can decimate an entire city by himself.
No. 242372 ID: 19dce0

We're sneaking in because the city is locked.

Clearly we needed a grappling hook to progress. Let's get down from here, and find ourselves a Forest dungeon. Those tend to have climbing tools in them.

No injuries.

This appears to be an orchard. The trees seem to have given their fruit already, or maybe they have yet to blossom. I don't recognize the type.

Despite how easy it is to sneak about in an area with the padding of grass and the cover of trees, there is only one guard.

...? Where are the rest...?

The guard seems to be thinking heavily on something.

I'd say mind pierce him, but that might give away our position. If you think you can manage to get some information out of him without alerting him that you're there, give it a try. Otherwise, let's just continue with the mission.

Maria has infiltrated the city!

So I'm looking for a man with a scar down his chin.

...This looks no less like a castle on the inside than it does on the outside.


There doesn't seem to be anyone in this area either. The garden seems to be an easy entry point. I'm a bit uncomfortable with this.

It's occurred to me that we're supposed to tell Scar that we know Tom.

...but "Tom" is not Tom's real name!

I'm starting to agree with Hadrian that Tom's plan does not seem very well thought out. I hope we're just a distraction for him or something.

Since we're already in, Maria, all we can do is keep moving and try to complete our objective. Stay alert!

Maria engages in a more polite variation of these suggestions.


Do you? I assume from your personality and previous reactions to suggestions that you would take this path. I wjust say it.


"S...Some of the best men I know happen to be demons. Following that, some of the most ruthless men are human."
"What boss says, goes," He mumbles, seemingly uninterested in Maria's rebuttal.
"Your boss seems to have an unfair bias against demons."
