Things have been pretty hectic since you woke up on a random hill - went undercover with your friend to find who mugged your new boss,, fought a crazy cannibal priest, died, came back, killed the cannibal priest who killed you - then you trained a time stopping sniper, got into a fight with his Dad, taunted him , ran when he snapped, now you Hona and Luc are headed for the Temple of Minerva in this Darnite and Wolfman infested town.The wagon outpaced the maimed wolfmen with ease, and between you and Hona you managed to cram it into the entraneway.The entranceway; little more than a vertical split in the rock face leading to a set of roughly hewn steps. Minerva tells you the lamps should be lit - when instead there is only blackness. Luc leads the way, eye glued to his scope and a hand in yours to lead you down, your other hand links you to Hona in a human chain.Each lamp is lit in brilliant golden flame as you pass, the hairs on the back of your neck standing up each time. You prepare yourself for battle when you hear them reach the cliff face, the howls bouncing off the rock. Minerva assures you the wards against mutants should hold them... but still visions of fighting in this unnatural cave fill your imagination.You cross the threshold, stairs suddenly leveling out into a grand temple. Though you notice it's not as empty as you were led to believe.... A gift for your devotion, I grant you answers and clarity Purps. "Wha-" You say aloud, before light blinds you and you're suddenly somewhere else...CONT
You see Lexington,his torso bare and the area around him cast in grey-green light. He's in a barrier - holding back the storm. But his stomach - it's been cut right through. Remy must have got him good, almost an impalement. He is directing magic to the wound, when his head snaps up and you see an emotion on Lexington's face you could never have foreseen - Terror."My friend. I have been meaning to catch up with you." A smooth voice says from behind your viewpoint.Lexington makes to stan up, spear appearing in his hands. "Don't bother standing. It's been a century since you could lay a hand on me." Your viewpoint moves as you hear his foosteps."What do you want?" Lexington asks, resigning himself to the stranger."I want to know why there are two nobodies with titles, my captain is gone and where his son is." He practically purrs."Why would I tell you anything Senator? I'm not your man anymore." Lexington says, but you see his hand shaking at his side."I see. You didn't manage to save your memories of my name, or our friendship. That's fine. I am Senator now in truth." The Senator lets out a sad chuckle. "As for why you'll talk? Because I'll rip it out of your mind if you don't and I have the patience to overwhlem your defences this time."Lexington is silent but gets to his feet. The Senator sighs and a hand comes into view. Lexington is dragged to the Senator's palm - his eyes going blank as contact happens.You return to find yourself on your knees surrounded by friends.> [GRATITUDE] Thank You Minerva> [WORRY] Shit.> Just get to the temple and rest up> Write-In

>>704724>>704719"Shit shit shit shit shit." You curse, kicking something at your feet as you pace."Vhat?" Hona asks in exasperation."The Senator's got Lex." You groan."So Lexington is alright?" Luc asks, you can see the real question behind his eyes though... what about Remy?"It's a long story Luc. Let's just get in the temple." You snap.Luc shoulders his rifle and begins exploring the temple.Hona takes out her rapier, doing the same after shooting you a look of concern.> Explore> What was that I kicked?> Write-In

>>704773> What was that I kicked?
>>705235>>704811>>704790You sigh and take a few steps. You're really curious about what you actually just kicked across the room. You follow it, seeing it roll ahead of you to a small dust covered wooden step. You reach down and pick up the metal, a round helmet with the symbol of Minerva; the twin suns. You notice some marks through the dust. It looks like someone dragged something through here. Probably the body that this helmet belonged to, there's not blood stuck to the floors so -"Oh. Hello Darlings." A sultryvoice rings out, your head snapping to the source "I'm sorry about the state of things. I didn't expect to be recieving..." He claps his hands and Hona and Luc join you right after.A man? Is by the pulpit, wearing what appears to be women's lingerie and pink rubber gloves. He drops a skeleton which he's been moving with a thwump."Welcome to my humble abode! Try to ignore the mess... I'll get you some tea."He struts off before you can even reply.> Uhm> [CURIOSITY] Who are you?> Minerva, is this... one of ours?> Write-In

Hona said giggling."Uhmmmmmmmm" You Uhm.He? Comes back from the kitchen with a tray of drinks."So.... who are you and why are you in lingerie?" You ask."Sweetie, don't get so flustered. By the way I dress. Don't judge a book by it's cover." He half sings.He runs his hand through Hona's hair as he? walks past to the altar and deposits the dirnks; Hona recoils instantly but is blushing. He serves drinks and you reluctantly get to dirnking."I am a travelling alchemist, Frank." He offers a hand for each of you to kiss.> Kiss his? hand> Shake his hand> Write-In Last post for tonight.

>>707579But anon, you don't know where it's been!
>>705535>>705635You blatantly ignore his hand whilst Hona tentatively shakes his? left hand. Luc is beginning to grumble about Hona's right hand being clasped over his eyes. "Enchantee" He? says. "But look at you... so feisty." He? clicks his? teeth at you. "But I didn't catch your names.""Forget that. Why are you in Minerva's temple?" You ask."Purps! You're being rude! Alos Vy are you glowing?" Hona chides.Huh, you're glowing white. Guess Minerva is pissed."Well my loveable little ladies. I have made this... temple my home because I am trapped here." He? poses at you? You can't really describe his? mannerisms... they're weird."Vas it the wolfmen?" Hona asks. Luc is actively wreslting with her hand."Yes. Those SAVAGES!

You emphasise, not liking this guy? at all."Well sweetie, they can't get in here." he begins removing his pink rubber gloves. "And despite all the skeletons, it is a rather.Intimate space.""I'm Purps, this is Hona. The kid is Luc." You introduce in monotone.Hona nods, "A pleasure."

>>710961>>710942>>710937"Hona cover Luc's ears." She does so. "Shut the fuck up Frank. Answer the questions before I bring Divine Frustration on your freaky flat ass." He gasps "The Clergy are all dead. Long time. When I came in from the rain, soaked and shivering... there were just bones."You grab him by his ear. "Go stand in the corner. Don't say anything. If you behave I might take you with us when we bust out of here."He sniggers and opens his mouth, but you twist his ear and thrown him over towards the corner. He scampers off with a smirk and you weigh the pros and cons of beating him."Why was that man wearing women clothes?" Luc asks while you follow some divine direction to this vault. Hona points a gun in Frank's general direction while resting on one of the pews.That is a tough question.> Uhm> Well you see... when a man likes....> Ask your Dad> Write-In

>>711043>>711059>>711070"I'll tell you when you're older." You say as you firmly put that topic in it's own mental mausoleum. "Okay, Minerva guided me here for some vault. But I don't see anything. Does your scope have any fancy settings that might help?""No. It's a normal scope." Luc says as he begins tapping stones."Why are you-" "Might be hollow. Dad hides his liquor and one time a naked massage lady in something similar." He says as he taps each cobble with his rifle.> Write-In how Purps searches for the vault.

You begin wandering around and searching for anything that can be tugged pulled or yanked. You are very glad you sent Frank away, for all you know he has inneuendo based mind reading. Luck apears to be smiling, as when you go behind the pulpit you find a skeleton holding a scroll. Unravelling it it appears to be a "How to" scroll for a martial art. Known as the Sunshine Fist. Nice.You then found another surprisingly dust free lever and pulled it. Only to find enough porn mags to run a garrison dry. Cursing Frank you took a step back and felt the altar sink. A trapdoor in the ceiling opened up, revealing a brilliant spotlight. Luc joined you in the light, you smiled at him."Now we're getting somewhere Purps!" He grinned.You shoot him a thumbs up.> Probably have to reflect this light somewhere, find me a mirror Luc?> Maybe Minerva's Lantern will do something?> Write-In
>>712746>> Maybe Minerva's Lantern will do something?
>>712746> find me a mirror, boyB-But where? I would think if there was some target for light our fire we would have seen it by now. If only Hona had a mechanical eye that could see through walls. But I don't think we are at the "incinerate the interior in desperation" point yet.
Heading to bed. Will continue tomorrow at some point.Sadly, due to budget constraints I cannot give you a wagon tonight.What? Don't look at me like that; blame the superiors. Also if somebody guesses my favourite Rocky Horror Picture Show song Purps may get a goodie.

Ok, I don't have time to write but In about 6-8 hours I'll be home from work and we can continue. The Board of Investors have allowed me to present to you a single wagon.Wagons are non returnable without proof of ownership or a responsible adult form slovakia.
You feel woozy as the temple melts away to be replaced by the brightest light you have ever seen. You feel the light pierce through your body, but where you flinch and expect pain there is only relief.The new world is one of whites and golds. You feel like it the room being replicated by Minerva should be familiar; though your memory is as blank as ever. You are happy when you see a blonde almost translucent lady form in front of you. Her body flickers and shines every moment, sometimes she appears solid but pale - others she is barely an outline of golden smoke. But you know it is Minerva. Her presence fills you with warmth."Lady Minerva." You greet her.When she speaks, she sounds almot shy? Like she's out of practice directly dealing with people? She's even fidgeting as she tlaks to you; "Purps. Call me Minerva. Don't become a septre shiner." The Goddess chides. "I appreciate your worship, but let it not be reverance or zealotry. Now let us practice." >1You practice the Sunshine Fist but make almost know headway. You get the basic principle down, you block an incoming attack one way and strike back twice as hard another way. The stances are easy enough; but putting the martial art into practice is nigh on impossible - even the simple act of blocking with your wrist and countering with a hook. Minerva just sighs as you fail to counter her low kick yet again. It is then you realize something; "Minerva. How Long has passed since you began helping me."She stops and you get the sense she's checking. You're unceremoniously thrown back to reality. You start. Finding your legs aching from standing exactly in place for what must have been at least two hours.You can't say Honamurei, Luc or Frank. The main room of the temple is empty save for the few skeletons Frank has not moved.> [WORRY] where is everyone> [FRUSTRATION] Minerva, why didn't you keep track of time> [CURIOSITY] Ask Minerva how she did that?> Write-In
>>717518>> [WORRY] where is everyone
>>717518>[WORRY]Maybe the skeletons know something, we should interrogate them.> the main room is emptySo there is more rooms. OP you didn't tell us anything about the temple except it was stone, had auto lighting lamps, had a frank, a pulpit and some skeletons. It is hard to search for stuff when we don't know where there is to search.
Ok, Minevra's godly knowledge in your brain is telling you there a vestibules and at least one atrium or businessy meeting room place in these temples. But the only vestibule with anything unusual is the one which Frank has taken to sleeping in. You see that the lingerie can't really be explained away, as it seems like all he owns is women's lingerie, surgery outfits for his alchemy and some kind of leather jacket thing...You shrug and try to ignore the scandalous toys, literature and what you think is some kind of fruit with a hole in it. How long has he been living here?But when you go to the atrium, you find Honamurei exiting the dusted and worn doors. They resist fiercely before slowly parting and they are quick to slam shut behind her, leaving behind a pregnant silence between you two as she walks towards you.She looks happy, happier than you've ever seen her in fact. But Frank and Luc aren't following her out the door.> [CURIOSITY] Where is everyone?> [RELIEF] You had me worried.> Write-In

>>717957>>717880>>717874"Where is everyone?" you ask, "Did you leave Luc with that freak!?" You shout, but Hona seems to almost giggle."Dont vorry Purps! Give yourself over, to absolute pleasure!" She claps her hands together and looks... well lewd."T-T-T-T" She stutters.You reach out towards her as she approaches but she keeps coming, smooshing her breasts against your hand with an orgasmic cry. She looks like she's on cloud nine until you flinch back... she looks distraught at your reaction.And begins to sing.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRiZRMLGjCYTHREAD END
