    Back home. Client insisted on bringing back the corpse, so it took longer to get back home.
    Anyway, as reward I got 220 pien and an amulet. He said it wards of evil spirits, but I cannot see any magical enchantments, so bleh.

    Oh, I think Nxisa has finally returned. Should I tell her about my little adventure or just leave it be? She might still be little down, so I am not sure how she would react.

    >Tell her, man. This is kinda of important :V

    I think she is little drunk.
    "Signed up for small quest to locate a lost brother. Found a mountain troll and half-eaten corpse instead."

    "Relax, it all went smoothly. He couldn't even land a blow!"

    Slept well.
    As for our task; it is simply to shoo away all cultist from old abandoned Church of Sun. Which strikes me as bit weird. I asked Nxisa:

    >"... Well eh, taking over abandoned building is not a crime itself. However, there are two things: they are Cultists of Edel. Edel is considered false god by Church of Sun and many other religions. Edel was a powerful man with strange powers, but still only a man. Second thing is that this building is still considered somewhat holy. Cultists are disgracing it with their presence."
    "Who is Edel?"
    >"Edel? Damn, I don't remember too well actually. Some Zere-era human who was supposedly sealed to hell as punishment for breaking into gods' domain. Nenonen mentioned him once on the airship, something about him. Cannot remember what it was."
    "Uh, so, do we even have to resort to violence?"
    >"Well, probably. They probably don't want us inside. Unless we can talk our way through."

    Hm, what do?


    >Dan, you talk to the guy at the side of the church. Introduce yourself, tell him that you're from out of town, appear curious about what this place is. That way you can cover for waht nxisa's doing. Besides, you look like a dumb kid, which is not a bad thing, and keep the guy's attention on you. Nxisa, goes to the other side of the church and takes a peek into the church. let's see what we can see in there.

    I suggest Nxisa to scout and spy through windows while I have a little chat with the cultist.

    >"... Who are you. What are you doing here."
    "I am from the city, and I was just very curious about this place. So I came to look."
    >"It's a church, yes. Soon it will be the first shrine dedicated to honored Lord Edel."
    There is long awkward silence. I think she is a mage.
    >"Have you heard of honored Lord Edel?"
    "Um, yes."
    >"Good, good. You can ask master to join our religion if you want. I can let you in."
    He does seem to be bit annoyed by my presence, but seems like he can answer some of my questions.

    >Well, ask her about the church and the religion. What do you have to do and all that. If she gets angry or tries to pass you on to the leader, ask her what kind of magic is she using as you're curious since a friend of yours from the city is a counter-mage and has told you a lot of things about countermagic. (Its not lying. Its just not telling the entire truth)
    >Ask him about why they're using this church, as it's kind of weird using a church dedicated to a different god than yours. I mean won't that mess stuff up.

    "About the whole cult-thing."
    >"Circle of Edel."
    "Yeah. What's it about? What kind of stuff you have to do? Why Church of Sun, isn't that already dedicated some of the sun gods?"
    >"Embrace all magic and wait for Edel's return. As for the church, we couldn't build a shrine in the city, so we decided to re-purpose an old church. It's abandoned after all. We'll get the symbol off this week."
    "Edel's return?"
    >"Yes. He is only sealed behind one million gates and walls, but they will crack in time."
    "And embrace all magic? You are a mage then?"
    >"This world and all its living are together stronger than all gods together. We need to embrace that power. And yeah, I studied to become an enchanter. Got kicked out."
    "... Nice scarf. Where did you get that?"
    >"Thank you. Got it from one of the tailors in the city. Could you go now, I am trying to read!"

    I return to Nxisa. Two cultists inside, don't look too tough. They are trying to figure out what to do with the altar.
    The upstairs is ruined. There is a shack connected to the church, constructed from wood. She guesses that it was built later on. She sensed more folk downstairs.

    >Cultist: "You again? What is... now?"
    "Why dont' you build a shrine right outside of the city? "

    She lets us inside so she can continue reading her book in peace. Inside we are met by three cultists. All three of them seem to be casters of some sort. The eldest one seems to be their leader, while other two are acting as bodyguards.

    >Leader: "Are you here to hear about honored Lord Edel?"
    >Nxisa: "No, we want you to leave this church. "
    >Leader: "And... why would we do that? Who are you even to demand these things?"

    Attempt REASON. Despite it being abandoned, the Church of Sun still finds this place to be important. Even if the cultists win now, actions taken against them will likely escalate. The Cultists seem like resourceful people, I'm sure they could make the money to build a shrine of their own.

    "You are all mages. Can't you like, get yourself a job from the city. Enchanter and whatever. Just build the shrine with your own money, okay? I am pretty sure Edel would appreciate that more than just taking a church belonging to other religion."

    I decide not to pester them, even about the whole Dark Archmage-issue. They probably know jackshit about his whereabouts. But Edel... name sounds oddly familiar.
    But yeah, let's get home. I am pretty sure she can teach me bit more! Nxisa tells me I earned 180 pien, which makes my total 425 pien!
    And two weeks passed so quickly. I learned a new spell and finally learned how to cast slow fall properly ( 5 seconds ). The new spell is Barrier, which grants me bit extra-protection, especially against spells.
    But overall, I cannot help but feel that she is bit keeping me down. Learning Counter-Magic is great but, I don't feel like staying here in Daciht. Maybe I should go to the city of magic; Jania. It's a long trip, but I think I have enough pien for it. Plus, I think there will be some human brothels there.

    >"Oh, there you are!"
    "Hi Nxisa."
    >"Well, good news, I found ourselves a new task. We'll be destroying a small Draconian Camp in the mountains."
    "A campt? Isn't that too risky?"

    Anyway! Yeah, I still have that leather armor! It has served me well! I could enchant it. The Edel cultist opened a enchanting-service about a week ago. I don't know how good he is. There are other money sinks as well. Herman's spells for example.

    I also like this. see if this is doable, an enchantment that gives environmental protection, and if such an enchantment could also give a degree of fire/cold protection.

    Then see how much it would be to add improved physical protection on top.

If it won't keep us dry, let's get light and something to keep us dry. Also, is this cultist a lady? I can't tell if that's a breast or a shirt fold. If the cultist is a lady, flirt a bit.

    It seems Daniel sees her as more of a maternal figure than a romantic one. I wouldn't rule it out, but I also wouldn't necessarily pursue it just yet. That said, yeah, if she's even remotely receptive, go for it. I just have a feeling the whole master/apprentice thing might complicate it.

    God no, Nxisa is a teacher and... I dunno. Big sister?
    I'll look into all of this after this mission!

    Met up with the group, moved to the mountains as soon as we could. There are 16 of us.
    The draconians are already resting. There are not many, but they are all capable fighters. Draconians are very capable fighters, though they are not bright. Our archers are going to take out the nightwatch. After that, warriors will charge and the elementalist will set the tents on fire. Nxisa's and my job is to stop their casters from casting anything.

    Just going to state this, the best way I can see for Daniel to get Jako to like him is having Daniel pretend he gives a shit about Edel.

    Shock him to stun him. Then, once he's stunned, shock him again before he can recover. Electricity is fucking awesome at incapacitating otherwise difficult foes. Keep spamming electricity until you can either perform a coup de grace or his heart stops. All of those muscles will work to our advantage when they seize from the shocks.

    Quick recap of story and Daniel's abilities here. Might repost this on new thread whatever.

    Daniel, a blind orphan gets cured from his blindness by a mysterious man going by the name "Miracle Lord". To thank him, he leaves his home to learn magic.
    In capital Joros of Joros, he becomes apprentice to satyr Nxisa, who teaches him counter-magic. After year of training, they defeat a rogue translator-necromancer and novice elementalist together.

    Later on they move to Nxisa's homeland Daciht. Nxisa needed to participate in capture/kill of Dark Archmage Ingram who is seeking ancient flying fortress Xjaal. However, she told Daniel that they'd be only going there for work.
    Their airship is however shot down by the passing Dark Archmage and his black dragon Gaia.
    Daniel, Nxisa and other survivors continue the travel by foot. After long trip, they reach Daciht and hear that ambush was a complete failure and most of people participating had been killed by Gaia and Dark Archmage. Nxisa disappears to mourn her dead friends, while Daniel helps a local satyr to find his lost brother in the mountains. The brother was eaten by mountain troll whom Daniel kills in combat.

    When Daniel gets back, he and Nxisa get job to shoo away some Cultists of Edel from abandoned church of sun. They manage to reason with the cultists, and no violence was involved.
    After two weeks of training, Daniel and Nxisa participate raiding a draconian camp in the mountains. The raid is a failure. Nxisa gets seriously wounded by a huge draconian. However, Daniel manages to lure him and throw him off a cliff.
