GREETINGS, ALIEN ADVISORS FROM... SOMEWHERE ELSE! HOW @#$%ED-UP IS YOUR VERSION OF REAL-LIFE TODAY?

Sorry, Viv, but let's just say that the voices in your head aren't from this planet. I'm not even sure if the ones you're hearing are from OUR planet!

But they sound like it. Anyways, we're the voices that SERGEI hears. How do you do?

Yo Sergei Vivian can totally hear your thoughts and also totally crushing on you. She might also be able to hear us, which could be useful.
Either way, yay ancient telepathy magic!

Wait, did the voices just say Sergei could hear my thoughts? Like all of them?

Yes.

:vivian:"Wait, they said you heard my-oh! OH!"

:sergei:"Y-yeah."

:vivian:"How much did you hear?"

:sergei:"Um. Everything?"

Fuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuck! It wasn't supposed to be like this! The bedroom, the rose petals, the Eastaland Red Rice bottle, the chains. None of that will work now...

Listen you idiots if you want to stop being mind linked drop the artifact or ask us to turn it off.

And do it quick before you get stuck like this.

Usually when you get stuck hearing each other thoughts its not oh cute romantic comedy stuff. Its quick descent into madness while being linked to a reality shaping artifact.

:Sergei:"Guildmaster, you've learned Glyphs right?"

"Um. Yes?"

:Sergei:"Good! Can you tell me what this is?"

"A green glass ornament?"

:Vivian:"Don't show him that! It's classified!"

:Sergei:"Too late for that, he was the one who gave the the blue thing so how bad is it if he sees the green one? Please guildmaster, do you know what this glyph is?"

"Wow. Wasn't expecting to see this."

:Sergei:"Why?"

"It's old. Like real old. Older than the Empire. That's saying a lot. Most folk in the Empire use Rezan Glyphs from the time of the Old Families. This is older than that."

:Sergei:"Well what does it mean?"

"Hang on I'm trying to remember. Uh. I think it's a glyph for West? Wait no. It could be a glyph for a Western clan maybe? It's really hard to tell. Old glyphs tended to look alike, and some just had double meanings."

:Vivian:"How do you know these things?"

"Vivian dear I'm Gamin, we have to know these things."

:Vivian:"That doesn't really answer my-"

"Wait I got it. It's Yishik. That's what it is. The Yishik clan."

:Vivian:"As in the Yishic familiy?"

"That's the one. Wow this is really ancient to have an old Yishic glyph, where'd you find it?"

Now that we've touched your mind, we should be able to talk to you at will! Isn't this exciting? I think it is.

Never fear, we're not going to override your will or anything nasty like that. More like just say hello, drop in for a chat over tea, discuss the next move in this dance, that sort of thing.

:sergei:"Nevermind where...Yishic?"

"Come now Sergei. Haven't you paid attention to your history lessons?"

:sergei:"I never had any."

"...Really? This is some really basic history. Everyone should know it."

:sergei:"I don't."

"Yaht-ka...the old Rezruton clan? The one wiped out by that alliance between Makag, Gamin, and Rokof? Pretty big deal."

:sergei:"Well it's not like it's required when aplying for the force."

Oh gods you're stuck in my head now?! No! This is not exciting! This is terrible. Last thing I need is an army of voices in my head second guessing me! Though I will admit a bowl of Jasmine Green would really help right now.

:sergei:"So um...I was wondering if you could help me get a few things, Eastaland Red, those gold enamel chains you like to use, and do you know a good place that sells roses?"

"Yes, why? What are you planning Sergei-oh! You're looking to court someone! Oooh that is adorable. Who is it? Is it that nice girl you always played with when your mother was working? I bet it's here isn't it?"

>>
No. 687208 ID: 3663d3

naw don't worry Vivian, we can only effectively talk to one person at a time, it's complicated magic stuff, but we basically can only 'see' one person at a time. so if we are talking to sergei we would need to jump t you. so you wl hear from us sometimes but we will probably just follow sergei around, unless he is doing something REALLY boring.


sergei, just tell them to be quiet, the walls have ears.
>>
No. 687477 ID: 3cf344

Well, that is the sort of thing that happens when you get involved in weird magic conspiracies. At least you (presumably) made a decision at some point to get involved with this sort of thing rather than poor Sergi who just kind of inherited it.

Anyway, what lead to the Yishic being wiped out? Was it people getting sick of their occult shenanigans?
>>
No. 687545 ID: 066a87

Ah, Makag. We worked with a Makag heir for some time, sometime in the past. Have you ever seen a copy of Fushimu Nakata's Mural "The Foreign Bloodwalker Defeats The Sightless Eyed Mage"? The Bloodwalker is the man we knew.

Interesting fellow. Fantastic soldier. Smart enough to listen to his advisors and to surround himself with the best ones available.

Vivian: It's not all bad. We're the ones who thought to have a mage examine Alicia and pushed to make it happen, for example. In hindsight we should have brought the fighter and left the researcher, but since everybody survived I'll call that a win.
Oh, and you have one of the most renowned and powerful magical artifacts in history on call for advice and possible warping of the very nature of reality. That's also pretty good.

Sergei: Signal for him to be quiet, then subtly gesture towards Vivian. He'll get the hint.

Oh...well that's some relief. Some. Though this stuff about bad advice worries me. Sergei has to put up with you since birth? Certainly explains the choppy record I found on him. Fushimu? Oh yes I've seen his work. Ugly stuff.


:sergei:"It's actually um..."

"What? Do you have a nervous tick? Oh-oh! Oh Sergei dear, aren't you aiming a bit high?"



As for the Yishic clan, that's ancient history. Not surprised it's surfacing up now. Ancient magic garbage has a tendency to do that.



:sergei:"What's that supposed to mean?"

"It's just that, she's Service, you're...a governor of sorts...of a minor island...seems like a huge gap."


I'm assuming just because you're now in my head that doesn't mean you have access to everything I know. So I'll run it down for you. Way back when, Rezo was made of a bunch of warring clans. Alliances were made then broken within the same year, feuds would rip clans apart despite neither side knowing what started the feud in the first place. Finding any historical record that survived that time is difficult. Very difficult, we still have archaeologist looking for something that paints a more complete picture of events. Anyway, at some point the Yishic clan started amassing power. Far too much power in such a short span that they managed to make enemies of every other clan. In fact from what we do know, foreigners from some unknown land got involved to fight Yishic because they were that notorious.


:sergei:"What do our positions have to do with anything?"

But even with such a grand alliance arrayed against them, Yishic stood against them all easily. It's assumed they had help from someone or something else because they had power that no one else had. I think maybe even an advanced form of necromancy? It's hard to tell as the only documents from that battle use a lot of old Rezan prose that makes it near impossible to understand.

[Yet as the dance war on, the flesh would rise and grow. From them, the radiance of an outsider. Rukimilkom(the name of the alliance) though banner by Creator and Destroyer that Was could not, would not, fell the flesh of Yishic.]

[As the dance weaves again, Yishic makes it's compact. Twelve and four it divides the dead from flesh, yet by doing so dead does not remain with this world. Foreigners come with strange dances and magics moving in ways not straight and true against the king Yishic.]

:sergei:"G-gentle? I joined the force for gods' sake! How could I still be gentle?"

:Vivian:"Did you say something Sergei?"

:sergei:"Nothing Viv, just talking with the guildmaster."

[The dance was done and the way finished. Yishic fell and Rukilkom returned to the Game. Yet the Pariah sang and Rukilkom listened
The Pariah sang in strange ways and Rukilkom listened. The Game and Dance would end with the songs of old taking new tones. New notes. And the outside shell was gone. The Creator and Destructor that Was furled their banner and left away for We the People to dance a new song.]

Word for word that's what it translated to and I have no idea what the hells it all means.

No. 688209 ID: a22f87

huh, wonder if that has anything to do with the fact that when we were helping him out back then while he just took the throne that creatures from old fables and children stories where becoming real and attacking villages, giant robots from the future were somehow showing up as derelict wrecks in the past, and that races from whole other dimensions were popping up and wrecking shit. Thinking back on it, it was less that we were better prepared and equipped and more that we were just better and navigating through the chaos.

"Oh fine Sergei. I can't fault you on ambition. But you are actually dating a woman that could have you killed if the relationship goes sour. Why?"

:sergei:"Well it's...because...erm..."


Well-wait-how? How do you know about the r-nevermind. But the Pariah thing is debatable. Ancient Rezan script liked to add pictures to everything they wrote about, and making someone bigger could have meant it was an individual who was more important than others, or maybe it could have been something big. It's hard to tell. Traditional script screws around with the language so it's hard to tell exactly what they were talking about.

I suppose I'll need something like you to help now. By far this case has been the worst. The worst.

No. 689726 ID: 4854ef

Vivi, whatcha lookin' at?

As for "bigger", that history lesson had one glaring property: protoplasmic-culture. Travelers from multiple alien civilizations thrown in via dimensional storms, choosing sides and fighting a great enemy, mysteriously leaving, etc., and all that technology / tactics / social reform lying around got all the natives wondering just HOW powerful THEY could be if they had the same stuff their heroes had. Cue epic cultural uplift with lots of bloody, bloody growing pains, ergo the Rezo Empire, the "biggah guys". Yay rape-Nazis.

Yes I am being sarcastic.

We need to oversee this next cultural uplift or some idiot might finally invent a nuke; imagine being able to create an artifact of doom AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT IN TIME if you have the right tools and ingredients.

Oh, and will you two @#$% already. If you try REALLY hard we might shift to our MAIN character the Rezo prince guy thing moron.
