    Magic User 56 - Spiritual Sense

    Set Music - Outside the Caves

    arkEX.png

    F7bDD.png A full night's sleep! And I'm pretty sure I didn't sleep with a werewolf shapeshifter! Now, what was I doing again?

    To-Do:
    - Help the townspeople so they like me
    -- Gnome Jester - Baba Yaga stole sense of humor - Bonehead wants something to make him look better to allow us by
    -- Innkeeper Yuri - Lost a daughter, ran away, became vampire
    -- Nikolai - Lost wife Anna long ago in forest. She's a ghost now. Told him about Anna, and he went after her.
    -- Burgo - Promised nobody else would disappear from town
    -- Gypsies - Saved his life. Didn't even thank me. Gave me a fortune and a spell!
    - Fortune - Four influences on me
    -- Shrew from long ago - Baba Yaga - Will help me if I satisfy her...*shudder*
    -- Defeated man from the past - Ad Avis - Wants revenge, prevented from doing so...probably because he's dead
    -- Woman in the present - Kind and loving and trying to help me - Katrina?
    -- Woman in the present - Deceiver or deceived - Also Katrina? Probably good to know which is which.
    - Rituals of the Dark One:
    -- 1. Bone - Acquired at tombstone in swamp
    -- Second - Stone of Squids, revealed by light of Will o' Wisp
    -- Third - Hollow of the Hangman's Tree, guarded by the spirit there
    -- 4. Blood - Acquired in Monastery
    -- Fifth (Mouth) - In Great Arch under Dark One's Sign
    -- Sixth (Heart) - Given to Gregor - missing and likely dead, though
    - Something going down at Castle Borgov
    -- Katrina - Mysterious, magical, awesome...master? Dark Master?
    -- Tanya - vampiric child, ran away from Inn, cared for by Katrina
    -- The stranger (Adda Bees?) isn't well liked at all, by anyone
    - Find a way to get Erana's staff in front of town
    - How did I get here?
    - Who brought me here?
    - How in blazes can I get out of here?


    F7bDD.png Maybe I should check if Nikolai came back...and get breakfast!

    kPlIS.png
    3AuAb.png
    3aSjB.png

    F7bDD.png On to break...

    lhCLr.png Nikolai has disappeared from his home. The last time I saw him, he said something about finding Anna. I fear he is dead. Nikolai has not been seen in some time. He seemed so happy when last I saw him. He really thought he was going to see Anna. Perhaps he did.

    F7bDD.png Yeah, about that...I may have mentioned I saw a ghost in forest named Anna and he may have gone after her immediately, and I may have lost track of him after that...

    oyhK3.png

    lhCLr.png So that is why he was excited about Anna. He has gone to her, I guess. Maybe they will be together again. It is nice to believe so.

    F7bDD.png Wow, you're taking this news surprisingly well. It seems I have underestimated you again, Burgo. For now, though, breakfast!

    W8m2m.png

    F7bDD.png Mmmm...garlic...so, you heard about Nikolai? At least your daughter isn't the latest thing to disappear from town anymore, am I right?

    AEayq.png ...

    F7bDD.png Right, I'll just let myself out again. Maybe I should check for Nikolai in the spot I saw Anna again. Although, I could use some stamina training with all this fucking running around I've been doing.

    FVFbt.png

    F7bDD.png Fuck yeah.

    jRNSO.png

    F7bDD.png Feel the burn. Fighters, eat your hearts out! Anyway, where was I? Oh, right, look for Nikolai. At least it's close by.

    tonYE.png

    F7bDD.png Well, shit. Maybe I'll ask Anna at night. Anything else to do now?

    To-Do:
    - Help the townspeople so they like me
    -- Gnome Jester - Baba Yaga stole sense of humor - Bonehead wants something to make him look better to allow us by
    -- Innkeeper Yuri - Lost a daughter, ran away, became vampire
    -- Nikolai - Told him about Anna, and he went after her.

    -- 4. Blood - Acquired in Monastery
    -- Fifth (Mouth) - In Great Arch under Dark One's Sign
    -- Sixth (Heart) - Given to Gregor - missing and likely dead, though


    F7bDD.png Lots of night time shit. Not so much in the day time. Could probably stand to grind up some magic ability, though, since that's been largely ignored lately...

    FDQdo.png

    MKqMk.png Nikolai! I have been trying to find you for so long...

    qBXMZ.png I never stopped looking for you, Anna, never.

    IbA69.png

    +6 Reunite Nikolai and Anna (205)

    F7bDD.png ...Yeah, that's totally what I meant to do!

    qBXMZ.png I love you, Anna. I loved you from the moment you smiled at me, and I will love you for always.

    MKqMk.png Oh, Nikolai. This time we will always be together.

    qBXMZ.png Forever?

    MKqMk.png Forever!

    The ghostly apparition vanishes.

    F7bDD.png Jim Darkmagic, forever alone...


    ...well, time to locate the souls of dead children!


    J0xWz.png

    F7bDD.png Dead children?

    mQ1JX.png You feel a chill go through you as you enter this part of the forest as if a cold wind suddenly sprang up from nowhere.

    F7bDD.png That doesn't sound like children. I'll have to check this out on a night where I haven't gone through my entire store of magic points. To the swamp!

    JkDrI.png

    F7bDD.png Hey, dead children! Hey guys, come help me over here a minute, I have a quest to do. I'm a hero, you know. You want to help a hero out, right?

    IFjzA.png

    F7bDD.png Ahh, fuck it. If you're going to ignore me, I'll find another way to open that damned squid stone. Come to think of it, you things do resemble my Juggling Lights spell...

    yRVHb.png

    F7bDD.png It's worth a shot. Juggling Lights!

    XPDMA.gif

    mQ1JX.png Your Juggling Lights spell momentarily illuminates the scene with magical light. Before the spell fades, you can see glowing runes and a small hole on the side of the standing stone. As your spell ends, the runes also disappear.

    F7bDD.png Right idea, but I need another hero to deal with the runes while the spell is cast. Fuck that, though, because Jim works alone. So, back to those Wisps...

    JkDrI.png

    F7bDD.png Let's see, what do I have that can make them come over here...oh, candy! Hey, dead kids, look! Jim has free candy! Come and get it, nice and safe candy!

    pQN5N.png

    F7bDD.png And...now!

    mQ1JX.png You capture a few of the Will o' Wisps in a flask.

    +6 Capture Will o' Wisps (211)

    F7bDD.png Let's try this again, now.

    6qVIZ.png

    F7bDD.png Okay, wisps, light it up!

    mQ1JX.png When you bring the Will o' Wisp near the standing stone, glowing runes appear around a six-pointed image. In the center of the runes you can now see a small hole in the stone.

    12l3V.png

    F7bDD.png This looks like a job for the tried and true Dark One sign...

    mQ1JX.png When you touch the Dark One Sign to its image on the Squid Stone, the Sign locks into place in the small hole. The points of the Sign seem to point to six of the glowing runes.

    UMKvB.png

    F7bDD.png What was the Dark One's name again? Oh, that's right, A-V-O-O-Z-L.

    mQ1JX.png As you complete the name of the Dark One, you feel a distant rumble under the earth as of the earth shifting or some unimaginably huge creature stirring in its sleep.

    Part of the Squid Stone opens to reveal a small compartment. You reach in to find a scroll covered with mysterious runes. The symbol of the Senses at the top is the only part you can make out.

    You also retrieve the Dark One Sign, which pulls loose from the stone with a slurping, sucking sensation. The hole in the stone closes as you remove the Sign.


    F7bDD.png That works.

    To-Do:
    - Rituals of the Dark One:
    -- 1. Bone - Acquired at tombstone in swamp
    -- 2. Sense - Acquired at Squid Stone
    -- Third - Hollow of the Hangman's Tree, guarded by the spirit there
    -- 4. Blood - Acquired in Monastery
    -- Fifth (Mouth) - In Great Arch under Dark One's Sign
    -- Sixth (Heart) - Given to Gregor - missing and likely dead, though


    F7bDD.png Huh, there's another one by the Great Arch? There's got to be a way to get back up there, then. Detect Magic?

    TN6uA.png

    F7bDD.png Magic in the top of the Squid Stone? Trigger that shit.

    HGSfn.png
    ehvB4.png

    F7bDD.png Kneel before the power of Jim Darkmagic!

    fdVpg.png

    F7bDD.png Now...any rituals here? Not visible at least. Detect Magic?

    mQ1JX.png You sense no magic in this area.

    F7bDD.png Anywhere to put the Dark One sign?

    mQ1JX.png You can't reattach the Dark One Sign to the archway. It no longer belongs there.

    F7bDD.png Then it would appear someone else got to this ritual first.

    To-Do:
    - Rituals of the Dark One:
    -- Fifth (Mouth) - In Great Arch under Dark One's Sign Missing! Stolen..,but by whom?


    F7bDD.png Ah well, may as well head back towards town and find a place to sleep for the night.

    hgklQ.png
    aXMW1.png

    F7bDD.png You know what? I actually feel bad about that dead child soul abduction business. Here you go, little guys, back to freedom.

    You release the Will o' Wisps back into the swamp.

    F7bDD.png No points, but I do feel slightly less creepy, now. Tired, but less creepy. Now, to find sleep...

    MGozw.png
    IbA69.png

    F7bDD.png Hey, you guys are still here...

    qBXMZ.png We came back one last time to thank you for reuniting us.

    MKqMk.png Yes, thank you so much. Without your help I would have been lost forever.

    qBXMZ.png I do not know how we can help you. This is the last you will ever see of us.

    MKqMk.png If there is anything we can do for you, please ask.

    qBXMZ.png We waited so that we could thank you.

    MKqMk.png You have saved our 'deaths' from being endless and meaningless.

    F7bDD.png You're...welcome, I suppose? Now, is there anything I need that you guys can help with...

    To-Do:
    - Help the townspeople so they like me
    -- Gnome Jester - Baba Yaga stole sense of humor - Bonehead wants something to make him look better to allow us by


    F7bDD.png ...Actually, I could probably make use of that hat of yours, believe it or not.

    yxiTH.png

    +2 Get Nikolai's hat (213)

    F7bDD.png Sweet, thanks! Anyway, you guys have been around here forever, do you know the folks at the castle?

    qBXMZ.png It has been so long, and I know so little of what goes on today. Still, some time ago, there was talk in town about a stranger moving into Borgov Castle.

    V0ZvW.png

    F7bDD.png Really?! The Dark Master for sure? That's wonderful news! You've more than helped me out here, Nikolai. I should probably let you two go in peace now.

    MKqMk.png Farewell. May you never be lost.

    b1Yri.png

    F7bDD.png If the Dark Master is really at the castle, maybe I'll finally find someone that understands me, too. For now, though, to sleep. The garden should be good enough for tonight.

    GC8oB.png

    mQ1JX.png A beautiful fountain with sparkling, crystal clear water beckons to you. This area feels cooler than the rest of the forest.

    F7bDD.png Magical fountain? That's new. Got to at least give it a taste, right?

    vhG8l.png

    mQ1JX.png There is something about the flavor of the water that excites and entices you. Before you realize it, you find yourself taking a much deeper drink. The water gives you a funny, dizzy sensation. In fact, it feels as if the whole forest is starting to spin around you!

    F7bDD.png Ohh, fuu...

    YOjFM.png

    OzU1r.png

    wJkb7.png Now wait just one...

    xTlfA.png

    F7bDD.png Now what the fuck was that?! Ah well, I'm sure they'll find me again if and when they need me. Now, sleep.

    You are flying in the very source of all magic. You are filled with power and the knowledge of how to use it.

    You create flowers dancing around you. Trees fill their branches with magical fruit as you touch them. You dance in a circle and the very ground itself radiates peace and harmony.

    wJkb7.png ...This doesn't sound like me at all...

    You sing the message of your heart, and the magic echoes around you a song of love and happiness. Then you realize that it is not you doing this. It was someone else back in time.

    wJkb7.png ...see? But then, who is this...

    5hhoa.png

    wJkb7.png ...uh oh...

    Darkness surrounds you, eats at you. The voice calls out again, and you are afraid. It calls from the center of the Darkness, drawing you nearer and nearer. The Darkness sucks at you, pulling you towards the voice as it flays all warmth and life from you. You scream.

    wJkb7.png ...scream? Definitely not me...

    New set two posts up. That way it's near the TOTP, right?

    As usual, I will add the voices later. Possibly tomorrow, if I have time.

  • gjaustingjaustin Registered User regular
    Man, Jim really needs some practice at enticing children into his van capturing the Will O' Wisps. Why isn't he asking for help finding his lost puppy? Or telling them their mother is running late and he's supposed to pick them up and take them to her?


    More seriously, is talking to Nikolai and Anna the only way to get his hat? Because I don't remember doing that, but I certainly remember getting the hat.

    Yeah, that's the only way to get the hat. It always seemed odd to me that Nikolai's disappearance and death was one of the happier moments in the game.

    Agreed. And the saddest moment of the game is one you think would be happy.
    Curing Tanya of her vampirism

    I've only beaten the game as a Paladin, so I can't remember if that's required to complete the game. Is it?

    The game has a lot of flavor that can be missed in several areas. I also need to start sleeping at the inn more to pick up more of those incidents.

    Ugh, why you gotta be like that, ImageShack? Starting March 1, all my images aside from the most recent 500 will be deleted. Unless I pay them two dollars a month for...ever? Looking for viable alternatives (which will require rehosting, which...annoys me greatly).

    EDIT: I have a new solution, which I will use from this point forward. I will eventually go back and fix my old sets, but...56 of them may take a little while. This also means Josh and Syphyre's sets may soon have broken images. Unless I just post so many more pics than them in sets that their imageshack accounts are under 500 images.

    Yeah, I'm going to switch over there going forward. Only issue with moving old images is that I have to relink each one for each set, which I am not necessarily looking forward to. :P

    You wake in a cold sweat. You remember every detail of the nightmare as though it had really happened to you.

    F7bDD.png If that's not me, who the fuck am I dreaming about? I'll have to ask that gypsy again some time, after a dream or two. First, though, breakfast!

    P9qRT.png
    CnqQn.png
    QalHJ.png
    VRaJX.png

    lhCLr.png Good to see you.

    F7bDD.png Finally, some positive response from the town! While you like me, I should mention that I'm busy tracking down the Rituals of the Dark One for...well, some reason, I'm sure. They're important, at least.

    lhCLr.png I have not spoken of it before, because I know so little. Still, it is very bad luck to speak of it and memories of Mordavia are deep.

    They worshipped it in the Monastery, that much I know. The members of the monastery stayed mostly within its walls, but the townspeople feared them. They said the followers were all like madmen, concealed in robes and speaking in whispers.


    F7bDD.png Oh, those guys guarding the Mad Monk's tomb? Bah, child's play. What happened to get them out of the monastery?

    lhCLr.png One day, they were all gone. We heard of the fighting down by the Dark One's Cave, of course. No one returned here, except for my grandfather. He brought the Staff here and said Erana was dead.

    That is all I know of the matter. I am sorry if I cannot help you more. Be careful, and good luck.


    F7bDD.png Every little bit helps. So Piotyr was your grandfather, eh? I don't think he succeeded in destroying the Dark One or the Rituals, so I'll try to succeed where he failed was unable to succeed. But first, breakfast!

    AlsVY.png

    F7bDD.png Mmm, that's some gooood garlic! Any news on your missing daughter?

    AEayq.png ...

    F7bDD.png Really, I'm trying to be nice today! I'll figure out a way to make things right, really I will!...I'll just let myself out again.

    F7bDD.png Uhh...

    0cd3I.png Is she not something? I am looking forward to an exhilarating series of experiments with her.

    Do not be concerned if you should be unable to reach me during the next few days. Frankie and I shall be engaged in some very important and engrossing scientific research!


    F7bDD.png I think that's my cue to leave. Forever. And run away fast.

    F7bDD.png Finally! Now, that tree looks really important...

    mQ1JX.png A huge old gnarled oak nestles a large rock under its roots as if it were hatching an egg. An ancient dried corpse hanges from its boughs.

    To-Do:
    - Rituals of the Dark One:
    -- 1. Bone - HAVE - Tombstone in swamp
    -- 2. Sense - HAVE - Squid Stone
    -- 3. ? - Hollow of Hangman's Tree, guarded by spirit
    -- 4. Blood - HAVE - Monastery
    -- 5. Mouth - Missing from arch, presumed stolen
    -- 6. Heart - Given to Gregor, missing and likely dead


    F7bDD.png That certainly looks like a Hangman's Tree. And if Skullsy over there counts as a spirit...

    DtICK.png

    F7bDD.png Son of a bitch, who could possibly have...oh, shit, Baba Yaga took it, didn't she. Well, all the more reason to get all up in her business!

    To-Do:
    -- 3. ? - Hollow of Hangman's Tree, guarded by spirit Stolen, probably by Baba Yaga


    F7bDD.png Okay, hut of brown, now sit the fuck down!

    ijLvd.png

    F7bDD.png What's the matter, hut, chicken? Okay, that was bad.

    Now, do I have anything a chicken hut might want...ooh, corn! Chickens like corn, right? Even in hut form?

    F7bDD.png And here...we...go.

    Uejz1.png

    F7bDD.png Cower before the might of Jim Darkma...

    mQ1JX.png A strangely familiar scratchy voice shouts, "Now!"

    F7bDD.png Ha, bet you thought I was a witch! But I'm not even close to melting here...

    ElcGC.png
    25MY9.png

    F7bDD.png Well, fuck.

    mthMw.png Come for a visit, are we? A little chat, perhaps? We remember the last time you came for a little visit, don't we, kids?

    F7bDD.png Gives a new meaning to the phrase "bat-shit crazy", I suppose.

    mthMw.png You turned me into a frog, didn't you? Thought I wouldn't remember you? "Let's just visit Baba Yaga and see what we can turn her into today," you thought to yourself, hunh?

    Well, now you're here and all trapped like a fly in a web. Just looking at you reminds me of lunch.


    F7bDD.png What is with you and food? All the time, food.

    mthMw.png Good, we'll just skip the main course and go straight to dessert. Any last words from the soon-to-be-supper?

    F7bDD.png Strike me down, and I will become more powerful than you could possibly imagine!

    kZ59M.png
    sFsE6.png

    F7bDD.png Fuck, called my bluff, then. Okay, I mean, I'm only here for a stupid gnome who says you stole his humor! You'd be doing everyone, and I mean everyone, a favor by just giving it back to him. It's cruel and unusual punishment.

    ieY6j.png

    mthMw.png So you came to help the jester get back his jokes, eh? How fitting. He made a fool out of me because you made a frog out of me, and now I'll make food out of thee. Just desserts, after all. So now we can all have our favorite treat to eat, isn't that right, kids?

    F7bDD.png *squeaks like a bat* No, let's have pie instead!

    mthMw.png You'd rather have pie? What, Eye Pie?

    F7bDD.png *squeaks like a bat* No, normal pie you crazy bitch!

    mthMw.png Oh, Elderbury Pie! It's true, we haven't had that for a long while. But I can't very well make one now, I don't have any of the ingredients.

    Oh, pooh. Now that you mention it, I'd really like some Elderbury Pie, with or without Eye Scream.


    F7bDD.png *squeaks like a bat* I bet that awesome-looking wizard can help with that, but only if he's alive.

    mthMw.png You're right, he did bring us some mandrake, didn't he? And it made such a lovely mousse. Very well, but it means no Eye Scream, for now.

    So, Mr. Tender-Morsel, I'll give you another chance. Bring me some fresh Elderbury Pie, and I won't have you for dessert. Agreed?


    F7bDD.png Sounds reasonable.

    zExZN.png

    mthMw.png Good. Bring us some fresh Elderbury Pie, or we'll just settle for Adam's Apple Pie and Minced Meat instead.

    We'll recycle this ice around this fool for Iced Knee later. Hero Lout, Now get out!


    F7bDD.png But how do I...

    I7i6e.png
    uvR3L.png
    5j1F9.png
    tyHzG.png

    F7bDD.png ...get Elderbury Pie...ahh, fuck.

    KkGVh.png Well, what have we here? Back in one piece? I sure never expected to see you outside of a quiche again.

    F7bDD.png Yeah, speaking of food, she wants me to get an Elderbury Pie. You wouldn't happen to know where I can get one, do you?

    DBftz.png

    F7bDD.png Recipe? Damn it all!

    To-Do:
    - Townsfolk:
    -- Gnome
    --- Humor stolen by Baba Yaga
    --- Bonehead wants headgear to allow me past (Hat?)
    --- Baba Yaga wants Elderbury Pie
    ---- Need Pie Pan, bonemeal, grue goo, and Elderbury berries



    F7bDD.png Well, I fortunately already have a pie pan. And I know exactly where to get more Grue Goo. So, that leaves bonemeal and berries. Where do I get bonemeal?

    KkGVh.png Well, it won't be on the shelf with the flour and cornmeal. You'll probably need to make it yourself. Get some bones and grind them.

    F7bDD.png Smartass, I have half a mind to grind you, Skullsy.

    KkGVh.png Hey, don't look at me like that. Baba wouldn't like it if you used bones she knows personally for the bonemeal.

    F7bDD.png What about the berries?

    KkGVh.png You'll need to pick them right off the Elderbury bush. Careful, or you'll make it cry. There's nothing worse than Elderbury whines.

    I don't know much about it. I don't get around much, after all. I think it's a mean green to the northwest. Careful around it -- if you destroy it, you'll make Baba Yaga very displeased with you. On the other hand, it could destroy you.


    F7bDD.png At least I have somewhere to look. Fetch quest away!

    LYPxB.png

    F7bDD.png Let's head towards the goo and see if there are some bones on the way. This place should be crawling with bones, am I right?

    P0dnL.png

    F7bDD.png Bones?

    jmXTr.png

    F7bDD.png Anything? Anything with bones?

    Tj9pN.png

    F7bDD.png This thing probably has had bones!

    mQ1JX.png There is absolutely nothing in the little rabbit's fanny pack. (Well, maybe a pocket watch, but you don't need one of those.)

    F7bDD.png Everybody's a smart ass today! Onward to goo, and possibly bones!

    XYMOR.png

    F7bDD.png Damn, not even bones in the swamp?

    qWDXy.png

    F7bDD.png Well, here's the goo.

    --- Baba Yaga wants Elderbury Pie
    ---- Need Pie Pan, grue goo, bonemeal, and Elderbury berries


    4vxsE.png

    F7bDD.png Come on, something with bones attack me!

    u3JCm.png

    F7bDD.png You'll do.

    mQ1JX.png Searching the fallen beast, you find nothing of value (unless you were planning on starting a flea circus).

    F7bDD.png Fuck! Why is this so hard to find? Fuck it, I'll just look for the Elderbury bush for now...

    xBcOD.png

    F7bDD.png Well, don't you look suspicious?

    mQ1JX.png There's something strange about this bush. Maybe it's the eyes. Oh, forget it -- it's probably just an ordinary, everyday bush with blood red berries and tentacle-like branches.

    F7bDD.png Good enough reason for me to keep my distance. I'll just Fetch some berries from here, thanks.

    mQ1JX.png You try to Fetch some berries from the bush, but they seem to be firmly attached to branches.

    F7bDD.png I can fix that too. I'll just Force the issue!

    Zk0AL.gif

    F7bDD.png And now...Fetch again!

    F7bDD.png Something here has to have bones...

    b7VsW.png

    8RCTc.png

    0vNcM.png Ten and twelve make twenty-two, this killer plant will crawl to you. Hungry, hunting seeking food, a berry bush with an attitude?

    +2 Solve Leshy Elderbury riddle (233)

    0vNcM.png Riddles, riddles, three, two, one. Next one and my riddling's done.

    Nine and eight make seventeen, watch out for the Faerie Queen. Cloaked by magic, pale of cheek, what is it that the Faeries seek?


    F7bDD.png Good question. I'll keep that in mind, though. Nothing about bones, though, huh? Ah well, I'll keep searching until I find bones, even it if takes me all night...

    Points tally (starting from 213):
    +6 Give hat to Bonehead
    +6 Get Hut of Brown to sit down
    +6 Get berries from Elderbury bush
    +2 Solve Leshy Elderbury riddle
    Total: 233 points out of 500

    F7bDD.png Apparently, it's at least going to take me until the next set.

    Voices in on set 57. I happen to like the VO work done on Baba Yaga, sounds just right.

    I have images ready for the next set (it was going to all be set 57, but I ran out of character space, so the second half of the day will be day 58). I'm also going to be converting all my images (and then sets) over to imgur, starting from QFG4 and going backwards. I probably won't get all 56 complete before the end of February, but at least the more recent ones will still work.

  • PiotyrPiotyr Registered User regular
    Since me converting all the set images from imageshack to imgur is pretty damned boring for people who already read all the sets, I'm going to see if I can get set 58 posted tonight.

    F7bDD.png Well, Leshy didn't help very much. Doesn't look like he's even made of bones!

    To-Do:
    - Townsfolk:
    -- Gnome
    --- Humor stolen by Baba Yaga
    --- Baba Yaga wants Elderbury Pie
    ---- Need bonemeal

    - Leshy Riddles
    -- LAST RIDDLE: What does the Fairy Queen want?


    F7bDD.png Why are bones so fucking hard to locate? Maybe that gypsy fortune teller can help. They use bones, right? Or was it cards? Ahh, fuck it, I can't even keep my stereotypes straight.

    UkdSe.png
    RMfXw.png
    dyKOx.png

    F7bDD.png Hey, Gypsy Davy, do you guys have any extra bones from your werewolf shapeshifter scavenging? Maybe that fortune teller has some?

    sidlf.png If you wish to know about her, why don't you visit her yourself? She will be happy to speak with you. She was most impressed.

    F7bDD.png Most impressed? Sounds like the opinion of me is finally turning around in Mordavia.

    FYq7W.png

    AxeSM.png I have seen in a vision that you have a friend in need. A stranger to this land like yourself, you speak with him in his room at the inn. This friendship will send you on a very strange quest.

    F7bDD.png Yeah, already been there. Actually, it links to the fortune you told me last time.

    To-Do:
    - Fortune: 4 Folks that affect me
    -- Inv High Priestess - Baba Yaga
    --- Will help me if I satisfy her
    -- Inv King of Coins - Ad Avis
    --- Experienced failure
    --- Desires revenge, but can't now
    -- Queen of Cups - ?
    --- Kind and loving and trying to help me
    -- Queen of Swords - ?
    --- Either deceiver or deceived


    F7bDD.png So, anyway, I figured out how to satisfy Baba Yaga without feeling the need to end myself. I need a bone to make bonemeal to make a pie to give Baba Yaga to retrieve humor for the stupid gnome. Get all that?

    AxeSM.png Ah, you tell strange stories, but I can sense that you speak true. You have lived a most exciting life. I do not think this valley will be the same when you leave.

    F7bDD.png Damn straight, granny wolf. So, anyway, I was hoping I could have a new, better fortune, that could tell me where to get bones. Any luck with that?

    QdmXT.png
    5qleQ.png

    AxeSM.png This Reading is of the ill-omened man. We shall learn more of his purpose and past.

    F7bDD.png Shit, that's Ad Avis, not Baba Yaga. Ah well, let's see what old Ad's been up to since he fell out of a building on fire. Because of me.

    sGjCr.png

    AxeSM.png The Queen of Swords. Some time in the past, this man has met the mystery lady of your present. He may have been betrayed by her, or perhaps he is the betrayer of the lady.

    F7bDD.png Knowing what I know, he's the one that's the annoying shit.

    8OgSk.png

    AxeSM.png Ah, the Magician. The woman of mystery has magic also. One is the teacher of the other. The order of the cards suggest it is the woman who was the master, and the man her apprentice.

    The events you face now obviously began in the dark past. Let us learn now of the more recent ones.


    F7bDD.png So the Queen of Swords is the Dark Master? Ad Avis having to serve a woman really must piss him off. Which makes me chuckle.

    dD7HM.png

    F7bDD.png Wait, were there two magician cards in this deck before?...

    AxeSM.png Ah, this is your own influence upon the man. It seems you were as important to his history as he was to your own. Let us see the manner in which you affected him.

    F7bDD.png Is there a card for setting him on fire and knocking him off a building? Because that was fucking hilarious, let me tell you.

    yPTNo.png

    AxeSM.png Death, the card of transformation. You are the agent of this man's failure and loss. You altered his life irrevocably.

    F7bDD.png You're too kind. I suppose death by fire and gravity is a kind of irrevocable alteration, am I right?

    AxeSM.png Even if you destroyed him, he still influences the present. That the cards chose to reveal information about him shows that he is again a player in the game of your life.

    F7bDD.png Well, that is just fan-fucking-tastic. What else can the cards tell me?

    psk5v.png

    AxeSM.png In the present, the Eight of Swords. This is the card of conflict and domination. The last card which crossed this man was also a symbol of bondage. He is somehow a prisoner, or an unwilling accomplice of another.

    F7bDD.png Let's have a look at what's in the cards next for Addy.

    gw2T7.png

    AxeSM.png This is the card of conflict and struggle. This man does not take his bondage lightly. Let us see what the cards show of his hopes and desires.

    F7bDD.png Yeah, he doesn't seem much like the serving type.

    WcBxh.png

    AxeSM.png The Chariot represents triumph and vengeance. There is a strong need to gain control of the situation of his life. He may seek escape, but escape is clearly not enough. Let us see in what way he may triumph.

    F7bDD.png If the next card is another Magician, I'm going to claim the deck is stacked against me.

    4vb9K.png

    F7bDD.png Whew...oh wait, is that bad?

    AxeSM.png This time the Devil is inverted. The meanings may differ, but this is a card that bodes no good whichever way it lies. Your man clearly seeks release, but with that freedom, he will also seek revenge.

    Whatever or whoever binds him now cannot contain him forever. He will seek his revenge, and you will need to be wary. You will face him again in a struggle to the death.


    To-Do:
    - Fortune: 4 Folks that affect me
    -- Inv King of Coins - Ad Avis
    --- Experienced failure
    --- Desires revenge, but can't now
    --- Serves Queen of Swords (Dark Master is a woman!)
    --- Definitely going to be a pain in my ass again



    F7bDD.png Oh, good. Something to look forward to. Any other cards on the table?

    GZxzy.png

    F7bDD.png More bullshit! And absolutely nothing about bones. Plus that took fucking forever. I'd better go, before the world ends of natural causes, for shit's sake.

    jexUk.png

    F7bDD.png Hope it's not too late yet...

    g3T70.png

    F7bDD.png Night already? Fuck! ...wait, is that a pile of bones? Finally!

    PR5uL.png

    F7bDD.png Oh, you. I don't think you know who you're dealing with here. Aura...Protection...Reflect...and Flame on!

    HTFXP.png

    F7bDD.png Drop it like it's hot.

    GspCC.png

    F7bDD.png Now, where were we, bone pile?

    mQ1JX.png The barrow contains treasure that the Wraith collected while it was alive (or perhaps more recently from treasure seekers less fortunate than you). You find a jewel-studded tiara, 6 gold Crowns, 40 Kopeks, and a few old bones.

    F7bDD.png Yes! Bones!

    To-Do:
    - Townsfolk:
    -- Gnome
    --- Humor stolen by Baba Yaga
    --- Baba Yaga wants Elderbury Pie
    ---- Need bonemeal but have bones!


    F7bDD.png No use trying to make this pie this time of night, though. May as well head back to the inn, see if I can get a good night's sleep there for once.

    wAhdJ.png

    F7bDD.png Up and over...

    wjXOM.png

    F7bDD.png Hey, a relatively quiet night...for once.

    ea299.png

    F7bDD.png Your hero has arrived!

    Ks1TE.png So Dmitri says the gypsy didn't really kill Igor after all.

    PcvgA.png What, you hadn't heard? That foolish gravedigger fell into a grave, and was trapped by his own gravestone!

    VTLlM.png Lucky for Igor the stranger happened to wander by before Igor starved to death.

    AEayq.png You are all fortunate that the stranger rescued Igor. You would have burned an innocent man.

    Ks1TE.png I still think the gypsy's a Werewolf.

    F7bDD.png I can say with full confidence that the gypsies are not Werewolves.

    Ks1TE.png So you found Igor in the grave? Lucky for Igor you came along.

    PcvgA.png Otherwise, poor Igor would be dead.

    VTLlM.png Well, at least he had a decent burial.

    Ks1TE.png Did you hear that the gravedigger returned to town unharmed?

    PcvgA.png Did you know that the gypsy has been released?

    VTLlM.png Were you aware that rumor has it that you saved both Igor and the gypsy?

    AEayq.png The gypsy has returned to his people, I guess. It is a good thing for him that you were in town.

    F7bDD.png Yes, I was aware. Days ago. I wasn't sure you all were aware of anything, so that's a bit of a relief. Anyway, supper?

    GPlIf.png

    F7bDD.png Mmm...that's some good garlic, Mrs. Innkeeper.

    a4K7i.png

    F7bDD.png You can speak?! I may have underestimated you, Mrs...

    WxgZ7.png Oh, that is right. We haven't been properly introduced. Yuri, will you introduce us?

    AEayq.png This is silly. You've met before.

    WxgZ7.png Still it would be nice to be properly introduced. Please, Yuri?

    AEayq.png This is Bella Markarov, my wife and keeper of the kitchen.

    F7bDD.png And I am Jim Darkmagic, Hero of Spielburg, Prince of Shapeir, Doom of Tarna, Savior of Igor, and Inadvertent Murderer of Nikolai.

    3OGDd.png

    WxgZ7.png I am very honored to meet you. My husband Yuri does not like me to talk to strangers. He thinks they may be dangerous. But clearly you are not dangerous. You are a Hero. We need a Hero here.

    AEayq.png Bella!

    WxgZ7.png Oh, Yuri. I'm just saying how welcome he is in Mordavia.

    F7bDD.png And this might be the first time I actually feel welcome in Mordavia. I'm going to quit while I'm ahead here, and get a full night's rest, for once.

    oxU6X.png

    F7bDD.png Finally, a bed and some peace and quiet...

    veqY8.png

    wJkb7.png ...damn it, I feel like I'm being watched...

    428qz.png

    F7bDD.png Hey, you're my boy, Blue! What's new?

    OsxHt.png Hero talk good. Hero deeds better. You help Domovoi, help you I will. Good you here. Many things talk about. Many things need to do.

    Many sad things in Mordavia. Many sad things need your help. Gnome need help. Nikolai need help. Yuri and Bella need help. Olga and Boris need help. Others need help. Even Domovoi need help. You help some, maybe you help others.


    F7bDD.png Maybe you hadn't heard yet, but I already helped Nikolai...die. Hey, I got Olga and Boris back together, so there should be less bitching in the shop, at least! I mean, I saved Igor! What else does a Hero need to do to get a little respect around here?!

    OsxHt.png You help Domovoi, Domovoi help you. Not far from inn bad place is. Very bad place. For sure bad place door try to kill you. Magic symbol you need. Magic symbol on door will open.

    F7bDD.png Yeah, been there, done that. What else do you need?

    OsxHt.png In bad place, Domovoi is. Domovoi not alive. Domovoi not dead. Domovoi very dry. Domovoi you help, more help I give you. See you I will again after you help Domovoi.

    F7bDD.png Why must you speak in riddles? What can you even do to help me? Is there anything you can even tell me that I don't already know?

    OsxHt.png In castle, many things dead. Many things undead. How to really help Tanya, I not know. Staff in town plenty powerful magic, but not know how to use it. Maybe gypsies know. Talk to gypsies.

    F7bDD.png Well, I would like to get my hands on that staff, yes. Fine, you win, I'll try to ... uhh ... rehydrate your Domovoi friend. But after sleep, thanks.

    To-Do:
    - Townsfolk:
    -- Domovoi
    --- Wants me to rehydrate his friend at the "bad place", likely Monastery


    - MISC
    -- Find a way to get Erana's staff in front of town
    --- Domovoi says to ask the gypsies

    What is it? Where is he?

    He's sleeping. Most people do that at night, remember?

    This is ridiculous. Stop playing with him. We can easily bind him to our Will.

    You are not to go near him, do you understand? I am not 'playing' with him. It is very important for me to establish a good relationship with him. Besides, he will need the help of others to accomplish our mission. The more friends he makes, the better.

    Friends, bah. You told me yourself that the townspeople distrust him. How is he supposed to make these friends?

    You forget, he is a Hero. I am certain he will do something to gain their trust.

    You are a fool if you still think you can use him without controlling him first. You know what happened to me.

    You are the fool! I know how to manipulate men. After all, even YOU must now do as I say.

    The voices fade off.

    Wait..... didn't you torch the monistary?

    Well, I tried to torch the monastery, but the narrator stopped me.

    I can't help but think that, if not for the dulcet tones of JRD Jim's path would look closer to Black Mage's than a QFG story.

    And before anybody calls me on that dream sequence at the inn, that dream can only happen on the night after you fail to save Igor. But, hey, I'm trying to include all the dreams here, and several have very specific circumstances.

    In news nobody who keeps up with this cares about, I now have half of the QFG4 sets switched over to imgur. At this rate, I should be able to get all the QFG4 sets switched over before the end of the month. It's a...slow...process.

    Since all of that doesn't matter to people who are keeping up, though, I'm going to take a break from fixing old sets to put together a new one now. :P

    Magic User 59 - International Woman of Mystery

    Set Music - Meeting with Katrina

    MjxSR.png

    F7bDD.png Yet another busy night. Now...what to do first?

    To-Do:
    - Townsfolk:
    -- Domovoi
    --- Wants me to rehydrate his friend at the "bad place", likely Monastery
    -- Gnome
    --- Humor stolen by Baba Yaga
    --- Baba Yaga wants Elderbury Pie
    ---- Need bonemeal but have bones!

    - Rituals of the Dark One:
    -- 3. ? - Stolen from Hangman Tree, possibly by Baba Yaga

    - MISC
    -- Find a way to get Erana's staff in front of town
    --- Domovoi says to ask the gypsies


    F7bDD.png Hmm...tough call...wait, what's that on the chest?

    mQ1JX.png The note reads "Please meet me tonight outside the town gates. I will be waiting." It's signed, "Your friend, Katrina."

    To-Do:
    - Castle Borgov
    -- Katrina
    --- Cares for Tanya
    --- Also HOT
    --- Master's Daughter?
    --- Meet tonight


    F7bDD.png Yep, that cinches it. I'm definitely better off with the use of some sort of staff this evening...but first, breakfast!

    cU1ZD.png

    F7bDD.png So, I'm really interested in that staff in front of town. You guys know anything about that?

    WxgZ7.png My Grandmother used to say that the Staff was from the Mage Erana. That it was Erana's final gift to Mordavia when she died.

    F7bDD.png That's some kind of sentimental value. So I'm sure it'd be cool with everyone if I took it and walked off with it, then, right?

    WxgZ7.png ...
    AEayq.png ...

    F7bDD.png ...I'll just let myself out.

    ChqqR.png

    F7bDD.png It's been a while...why can't I just take this thing again?

    mQ1JX.png The Staff feels warm and almost alive in your hand. You hear an eerie voice in your head.

    This I must first do -- the sacrifice of life for one of love.

    mQ1JX.png You find yourself letting go of the Staff very quickly.

    F7bDD.png That's right. Either someone who loves me has to sacrifice themselves, or I'll have to sacrifice myself...yeah, that's not going to happen. Gypsies?

    EETAX.png
    IB7le.png
    sBGFF.png

    F7bDD.png Still wish they didn't have such an aversion to the townspeople. It's not like the people would try to hurt them...oh, right.

    3gSeH.png

    F7bDD.png So, a blue guy told me to ask you about that Staff in front of town. It looks lonely, so I thought I should find a way to keep it company.

    AxeSM.png The Staff of Erana has a great deal of magic. It protects the town from the Undead, although the townspeople do not know it. I had a vision of it one night.

    I heard it speak in the dream. It told me how it protected the town and of its Destiny Spell. When the staff spoke no more, I saw a beautiful crystal floating in the air. The staff touched it and the crystal shattered. That was all I saw.


    F7bDD.png Why can't you or I ever have direct, sensible dreams? What's this Destiny Spell you speak of, though?

    AxeSM.png In my vision, the staff said that it would guard the town until it cast its Destiny Spell. That one day someone would bring a dead loved one before the staff. That person would trade his life force through the staff.

    The dead would rise alive and well, though the one who gave his life for the dead would never know. That would be a true sacrifice, done with foreknowledge and with love. The staff still stands in the town, so I do not think anyone has been willing to make such a sacrifice.


    F7bDD.png So basically I need to find someone dead, and someone else who loved them still alive to sacrifice themselves to bring the dead back to life. Damn, I completely wasted Nikolai!

    To-Do:
    - MISC
    -- Find a way to Get Erana's staff in front of town
    --- Domovoi says to ask the gypsies
    --- Need to cast Destiny Spell, which requires one dead thing and one living thing that will sacrifice themselves to bring the other back


    F7bDD.png Well, maybe a new Fortune will help me find someone for this Destiny Spell.

    To-Do:
    - Fortune: 4 Folks that affect me
    -- Inv High Priestess - Baba Yaga
    --- Will help me if I satisfy her make her Elderbury Pie
    -- Inv King of Coins - Ad Avis
    --- Serves Queen of Swords (Dark Master is a woman!)
    --- Definitely going to be a pain in my ass again
    --- Desires revenge, but can't now
    -- Queen of Cups - ?
    --- Kind and loving and trying to help me
    -- Queen of Swords - ?
    --- Either deceiver or deceived
    --- Dark Master(!)


    AxeSM.png Again we ask the cards to reveal what was, what is, and what might be.

    CLKzp.png

    AxeSM.png Ah, the mystery woman will now be revealed. Let us see that which was her distant past.

    F7bDD.png Queen of Cups, eh? Please be Katrina. If she's genuinely trying to help me, I think I just found the woman of my dreams.

    ogJcp.png

    AxeSM.png In her past, she has been dominated and defeated. Her Significator card reinforces this impression of tragedy, of some cruel event that shaped her life.

    F7bDD.png Well that's not good. What happened?

    qgPMV.png

    AxeSM.png Strength is the card of courage and defiance. That which bound her in the past could not break her. She gained her freedom not through luck, but through her own actions. This is a woman with great inner qualities. The tragedy of her past has molded her present, but she alone has shaped her life through fortitude and determination.

    F7bDD.png Great inner qualities to mirror her great outer qualities, I hope. Next card...

    Wngrz.png

    AxeSM.png The sign of the Magus, the master of magic and self. She has great power and self-confidence. This can also imply self-deception and illusion, as well.

    F7bDD.png It sounds more like Katrina every card...although the illusion bit is a tad concerning.

    AuoJu.png

    AxeSM.png An inverted Death! This signifies stagnation. She has not grown beyond the past. Rather, she is trapped by immobility. She is changeless, and her gains have been balanced by her losses.

    F7bDD.png Trapped in the past? Can't leave the castle, perhaps? Any more help from the next card?

    gm2sz.png

    AxeSM.png This card shows that she is working towards some goal, some desire that has yet to be fulfilled.

    F7bDD.png Awww yeah. And that's where I come in.

    jTM5U.png

    AxeSM.png This is the card of love! Her present is influenced by affection for another. It seems that our mystery woman is falling in love with someone. This is not what she was striving for; it is something in addition to her current goals.

    F7bDD.png Yep, this is definitely Katrina, and that is definitely me.

    AxeSM.png Now you shall reveal the future as she would have it.

    i2SKU.png

    AxeSM.png The World is the summation of all desires and goals. It can represent the reward of all one's actions, or the admiration of others. This can be the symbol of eternal life. It can mean attainment of ultimate power and perfection.

    F7bDD.png Ultimate power and perfection? Cards, you make me blush. I must see more!

    xnoMF.png

    AxeSM.png This is truly the card of illusionary goals. That which she seeks to gain is only a delusion.

    F7bDD.png Hey, I'm all wizard, lady!

    AxeSM.png What she desires and what she will gain through her actions are very different things. She cannot see that she is seeking an illusion, and should she attain her goal, she will ultimately lose.

    F7bDD.png I'm right here, granny! And I suppose the last card is the dark one again...

    Stltg.png

    AxeSM.png Everyone in this accursed land is affected by this Dark One. Aiee, that we had never set foot here!

    F7bDD.png Everything ties to those fucking rituals. Ah well, Now I know more about Katrina.

    To-Do:
    -- Queen of Cups - Katrina
    --- Kind and loving and trying to help me
    --- Suffered hardships in past
    --- Bound to the present
    --- In love with me
    --- Goals are an illusion?



    F7bDD.png I'd best be off. I need to go see about a pie for an ogress about a gnome. It makes more sense in context.

    nVEnT.png
    KUZO5.png
    PjiMf.png

    KkGVh.png So, did ya get it? Show me. I won't let you in without it. Ya better got everything ya need ta make the pie. I'll help ya cook it, courtesy my buddies here.

    F7bDD.png Okay, Bones. I have the stuff for the pie. Except I need to actually make bonemeal from this bone first.

    vTBx1.gif
    +2 Make bonemeal (235)

    F7bDD.png While I'm doing this, I was wondering...have you seen a Ritual of the Dark One anywhere around here? It was in this tree...

    KkGVh.png You realize it's supposed to be bad Karma to mention the Dark One. What do I care? It can't do much to me now anyway. Well, you probably seen the cave mouth. We flew by it in the hut on the way into the valley. Nasty looking thing. It takes some sort of Ritual magic to get the mouth to open. Someone at the castle has that ritual now, I understand.

    F7bDD.png Someone at the castle has the Ritual to open the mouth? Well, that's just fantastic.

    To-Do:
    - Rituals of the Dark One:
    -- 5. Mouth - Missing from arch, presumed stolen Owned by someone in Castle. Didn't Katrina open the mouth? Wonderful.


    F7bDD.png Well, bonemeal's ready. One part bonemeal, one part goo, one part elderbury, and here we are. One finished pie, ready to bake.

    KkGVh.png Looking good. Now show it to the head skull over there, and get outta the way fast if ya don't want to add rump roast to Baba's menu for tonight.

    ds69w.gif

    KkGVh.png Hey, Birdlegs! Squat!

    tlEKy.png

    F7bDD.png Let's do this thing. After a quick Reflect spell, because I'm not an idiot.

    Vdzqy.png

    F7bDD.png I'll just step past the door, this time...

    mthMw.png Not very trusting, is he, kids? Good, it's not like I trust him. Floor Quick! Make him Stick!

    mQ1JX.png You find your shoes stuck in the floor.

    w2M1Z.png

    F7bDD.png Damn it, stop that!

    mthMw.png Spirits of the swamp and mire, Aid me in what I desire! Creatures of mist, Beings of Fog. Turn this human into a hedgehog.

    F7bDD.png Ha!

    mthMw.png What? You have some sort of protection spell going? Didn't help your feet, did it? I guess we'll just have to settle for manwiches again.

    Oh, that's right. You were supposed to bring me something weren't you? You must have it. Bone for Brains wouldn't have let you in otherwise.


    F7bDD.png Bone for Brains is a good one, actually. But yes, I made your stinking pie. Take it!

    +6 Give Baba Yaga the pie (341)

    mthMw.png Yum, that smells delicious. Just the way we like it, fresh from the fire. So, let me think, how should I reward you for such a lovely pie?

    F7bDD.png Well, there's this Gnome whose humor you took, and it's making the entire fucking town miserable. So, for the greater good, that would be...nice.

    yCJDt.png

    mthMw.png Oh, all right. Take this 'Good Humor Bar' and give it to the Gnome. I suppose there is nothing more pathetic than a Gnome who can't tell a joke.

    F7bDD.png Don't I know it. While I'm here, I was wondering if you saw a ritual...

    mthMw.png Tasty Treat, Now Retreat!

    HjrjI.png

    F7bDD.png Damn it, I wasn't finished. Listen to me, ogress...

    uuGQM.png

    mthMw.png Back so soon? I hope for your sake you brought us something to eat. After all, there's always room for Hero, heh, heh, heh.

    F7bDD.png Now what do you want?

    mthMw.png You should know my tastes by now. Anything gruesome and toothsome, after all.

    F7bDD.png Fine, I'll get your useless shit again. But I was wondering...

    HjrjI.png

    F7bDD.png Fuck it, I'll just get the same shit again...

    5OEde.png

    F7bDD.png Okay, Elderbury bush, this is going to hurt you a lot more than it hurts me...

    5OEde.png

    F7bDD.png No berries? Maybe I just need to keep pelting you with Force Bolts...

    5OEde.png

    F7bDD.png Fuck it. I'll just get the other shit.

    WS8FJ.png

    F7bDD.png Goo...and wait until night...

    XIIyD.png

    F7bDD.png ...and bones...

    oFyZp.png

    F7bDD.png All too easy. But wasn't I supposed to be doing something tonight?

    To-Do:
    - Castle Borgov
    -- Katrina
    --- Cares for Tanya
    --- Also HOT
    --- Master's Daughter?
    --- Meet tonight


    F7bDD.png Oh, shit. Gotta go!

    u9NOX.png
    tOYhl.png

    F7bDD.png Hey, Katrina. Hope I wasn't too late...

    gyLUk.png Hello again. Did you get my note? I hoped I could see and speak with you again. I hope you don't think I'm too...well, forward, but it's just that I don't meet many new people around here. I'd love to hear about your adventures.

    F7bDD.png Oh, I could talk about those all night. Let's start with a story about me and setting wizards on fire...

    WRdOm.png

    gyLUk.png You have seen so many places and people. I love listening to your adventures.

    F7bDD.png If you like my talk, you'll love my action...

    gyLUk.png You'll make me blush if you keep speaking like that, but I really don't want you to stop. I like listening to you.

    F7bDD.png You could always come up to my room...

    gyLUk.png I mostly just work in the castle. That's why I can't see you during the day. Someone might notice I'm gone.

    F7bDD.png Hey, while we're on the subject of mouth action...you wouldn't know anything about a Mouth Ritual, would you?

    gyLUk.png I've got to go...Maybe we can meet again? It's too dangerous for me to come here again. It's so far from the castle. Maybe we could meet by the castle gate some evening. I'll watch for you there.

    Please don't mention me to the gatekeeper. I'll get in trouble if anyone finds out I sneak out of the castle. They think it's too dangerous outside the gate, but I need to get out to see you again. Good bye!


    mQ1JX.png You watch her walk off before you think of doing anything else.

    F7bDD.png Smooth talking, Jim Darkmagic. Hopefully I get another chance in a few days. I'm not even against the Dark Master! Even if it is her mother. Ah well, time to find sleep. Think the garden will do tonight, since I'm really not up for the damned inn.

    Zqu2W.png
    8mGjw.png

    wJkb7.png ...wonder if...

    jAg10.png You remember the happiness of being here before this. Now there is greater joy. You are not alone.

    wJkb7.png ...Katrina?...

    You are filled with the warmth of friendship. You share your hopes, your dreams, all the best moments of your life, knowing that here is someone who understands and cares about you. You reach out to touch your friend, but there is no one there.

    wJkb7.png ...wait...Katrina...

    693kI.png
