This Quest is developing similarly to a Civ or a Skirmish, but the setting is a "Low" Fantasy Victorian-era world where magic is present. Similar to an Isekai, your character has died in the real world, having lived an unfulfilled life. Perhaps you gave your life to save someone else's. Perhaps you missed the chance to do something while you were alive. Perhaps you simply ended your life, uncontented with its many facets.To your surprise however, you've awoken in a strange, yet familiar world. You feel fundamentally different, as if there is a new power stirring within you. You know this feeling as the gift of magic, with potential far greater than many of the people in this world. You are an Outsider; a person whose soul had been wrought from another dimension. You're not alone, either. You've awoken alongside other Outsiders from Earth, too. Whoever you were back in the old world is mostly inconsequential now. You were greeted by several humans with clothing that looks similar to what someone from the 19th century London would wear. They then introduce themselves as members of an organization called the Xerenith Order. Your summoners have brought your soul here to help fight against threats that they cannot fight against alone. The Order promises to give you funding, safety, and a roof over your heads, so long as you continue to work with them. Ultimately, there is no explicit way to 'win'. As a player, you are encouraged to set your own goals. Maybe you'd like to amass power, or return to Earth, or even rebel against your summoners. The choice is yours.

=============[NEWS STATUS:][Stronghold:]The FactoryAn old metal processing plant that was closed down decades ago. Chosen for its proximity to the city of Burhtic, this building is close enough to get to the city, but also far enough to make sure that if something were to happen, the Xenerith Order would have ample time to stop it. The factory floors were cleared of machinery, meaning that there is plenty of space for development. The lack of comfortable amenities might leave something to be desired, however.Default Building:>Sleeping Quarters>Kitchen>Dining Hall>Armory>Infirmary(Currently in bad shape)>Free Space for Development (8/15 left)Expansion Units: 5/15>Structures:>Forge>Library>Spell Repository>Chemist Lab>Fight Arena============= = The Wagons & The Campfire = A weaker type of StrongholdIn search of the culprit storm of daemonic origins, the Order has sent out an Expedition of Selected and Volunteer Outsiders. They have already sent a small scouting team to follow and catch the storm to stop the Vermin attack on the innocent villages that surround Oshaelys Tail. This turn they are sending a small wagon with Outsiders that are interested in going to fight the threat of the Vermin Storm. Currently, the selected Outsiders are:>Helsing Ludwig>Malcolm York>Melchior Santos>Tabatha O. Nana>Vira Vesperia>Frederick Helmharder>Blümelein Von Abenthot>Tatsuo TakeshimaRight now, the camp is outfitted with the basics for livingWe currently have:- Sleeping Tent (A big military style tent)- Kitchen and Supplies Tent- BonfireThe Wagons, during the day will be used for storage. The Equipment that you receive is the following:[Xenerith Order Long Shield]Quality: ExcellentOff Hand ShieldCombat Actions: Block - 10 TP, As a reaction, attempt to block an incoming attack with your shield. Block Check 5. On a successful block, increase DR by 50.[Xenerith Order Medium Iron Armor]Quality: ExcellentArmorDefense: 25 DEF; 0 MRResistances: 30 Kinetic; 25 Acid; 15 Cold; 15 PoisonWeaknesses: 30 Heat; 30 Electric[/I]Special Effects: It produces a CLANK sound as you move.

=============Caravan UpdateThe Caravans have decided to stop in the small mountain town of Neuroda, located Southeast of Burthic. Neuroda inhabitants are somewhat abhorrent of magical use. They clearly identify it with demonic use and curses. They are neutral towards Outsiders if they are with the Order. The town is also famous for it’s hot springs and bath houses, so feel free to enjoy them while you stay.This town was spared by the Storm of the Vermin due to the close proximity of the Fanthorpe Hold. This town is settled near a small river and it is known that the Soldiers in the Hold are skilled in the art of marksmanship. That’s how they managed to keep the Storm off the town. We are picking up a small squad of their finest marksman to add to our Caravan. The son of the local baron of the Heintrenput fief has joined the caravan in order to help in your quest, so far he is being really popular with the ladies that meet him on the road, but not of much help in anything else.You are free to explore the town and its surroundings.=============Since some Outsiders are catching up to us in the way to the Caravan, and since supplies are limited; they get to choose (as a free action), one (1) of the objects in the list of equipment given. The Order had arrangements for the Outsiders that were already in the group. Those of you that had opted to be more spontaneous and run after the caravan having to make do with ‘impromptu’ lodgings, mainly sleeping with the cargo.Condition: Sleeping with the Cargo - This deals a -20 to Resting and Relaxing. It deactivates healing regeneration this turn. ============= = The Guard = Considering that some of the Outsiders are leaving The Factory to chase the storm, the Order of the Xenerith has decided to create a Guarding post for the Defense of The Factory. The Outsiders that have volunteered for the Guard will receive a special kit for guarding. The Volunteers are:>Atom Glass>Isaac Thorne>NeoThe Selected Outsiders will receive:[Xenerith Order Guard Uniforms]Quality: ExcellentArmorDefense: 10 DEF; 0 MRResistances: 5 ColdWeaknesses: 5 HeatSpecial Effects: NoneDescription: Guard Uniform with the Xenerith Order insignia.[Xenerith Order Guard Flintlock Revolver]Quality: ExcellentMain Hand WeaponType: Non-ScalingRange: 30 ft.Damage: 70 PiercingSpecial Effects: After 6 consecutive shots, you must take a major action to refill it with black powder and projectiles.Description: A beautiful flintlock revolver engraved with the Xenerith Order Insingnia[Xenerith Order Sack of Black Powder]Description: A pouch where powder is stored.
==================[Xenerith Order News]=====Old Aisle Status:It seems like the oldest part of the factory was involved in a particularly destructive incident involving the attempt to make an Multi-Purpose Medical Room, which resulted in the destruction of the infirmary, the demolition of one of the walls of the forge and a giant hole in the wall of the second floor of the Factory.The Order would like to inform all the Outsiders that their help would be well received, and while they aren’t really prepared to lend any meaningful rewards, having the damages restored is probably of vital interest to everyone who may need these facilities. And keeping the water and the forest fauna outside would do much to let everyone sleep without worried of awakened by a flood of water or spiders in the middle of the night.>[Failures can result in more “interesting” results than the usual even if done inside, every failure after the first will be considered “Outdoor activity” as the interior is partially exposed to the elements. Furthermore, the water is not a problem anymore, but insects have been seen flooding in as if searching for a new place to call home after being forced to lay low because of the storm. -10 to all resting and relaxing rolls done inside. (-5 after taking in consideration the weather bonus).]>[The infirmary was relocated to the opposite aisle, but is working at half the efficiency for the next turn. All rolls involving it will receive a penalty depending on the complexity of their dependence on it.]Weather Report:The weather is now cloudy with patches of sunlight. =====[QM Announcements News]=====Since we are still experimenting with the system. Linked in the OP. Powers obtained this turn may be subjected to change.We are now currently using the 1.0 RuleBook. Check OP for link.
========== Turn Results: ==========>>2471638[Gabriel]>90 - M>52 - MMay the LORD repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded by the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge. - Ruth 2:12You have done it. So many days and so many nights writing like an ancient scribe, hunching over your candle lit desk, you have finished a handwritten copy of the Holy Bible from Memory. [Bible] - A complete reproduction of the Holy BibleYou feel the presence of the LORD blessing you with his approval, and can finally peacefully rest, knowing that a vital part of your mission is fulfilled. You sleep for an entire day, and wake up at your best mental condition, so full of joy and faith that it spread to your immediate followers through your words and deeds during the rest of the week.Miracle Pool is now at 5![Mission Fulfilled] - You can now rest at ease knowing that you completed an important part of your mission in this world. You have advantage for all your resting rolls for the next two turns.[Increased Faith] - Your overflowing faith has inspired your 4 Main followers to increase their dedication to the study of THE WORD and HIS WILL. They have all gained the Skill “Basic Theology”(Industry) and the “Faithful” condition.[Bible Study Sessions] - Now you can do Bible Study Sessions… That allow you to train your common followers into preachers. Each preacher allow you to roll an extra dice per turn for the conversion of new followers (Please roll the dice on a second post, not on the same one as your actions.), but at the moment you have none. It takes one minor action to make a study session, but you only manage to train a preacher at a crit. Unless specifically stated advantage on religious rolls don’t apply to this test, as it is based more on the personal faith of the people studying than on your own.One of your common followers, one of those you don’t even usually remember the name, tells you about some impressive scientific contraption that allows books to be copied through machines, without all the hassle of have to transcribe them all by yourself. You still aren’t sure about how trustworthy such things really are, but it sounds way more promising than trying to train an entire order of monks to do this all day.[cont]
>>2514933>32 - mFor in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. - Romans 8:24-25 You receive no immediate response about the protection of His word. But there’s a warm feeling inside you. Warm Feeling of Protection - It feels nice, doesn’t it?>EXTRAYour two front door guards enter your room with a prisoner. His hands are tied up and his head is covered with a sack. One of your guards comes over and whispers to you:[/green]“He came in wanting to see you, but he had a gun...”[/green]You nod. The other guard, with his voice, commands the prisoner in front of you:“Speak” You can now RP with the Prisioner. You only know him as the Prisioner.
>>2514946Priere>39You need something with the intelligence to make its own decisions without you having to focus to control its every action. You feel the magic welling up inside you. Oh it’s a big one. You can feel the raw power coiling away from your body. Whatever it is, it’s twice as strong as an anteater.When the spell finishes, you are standing next to a transparent figure that looks exactly like you. But, contrary to what you’d think, this construct is moving on its own and it’s doing its own things without your commands. It is actually showing sentience, before disappearing in a small shower of shining mana. Perfect. Gain: [Summon Mana Mist Construct] (Sorcery) - 30 TP - As a Major Combat Action, summon a Mana Mist Construct with the following stats:---Mana Mist ConstructHP: 80 TP: 20 AD: 20 AP: 20 DEF: 0 MR: 10 SPD: 30---You may dismiss your summoned creature as a Minor Combat Action. Summoned creatures disappear when their HP hits 0 or after 20 combat rounds. Mist constructs can only do basic attacks, and cannot equip items.The ability to summon a Mana Mist copy of yourself.>14Everything points out Ned’s door, if you want to make some changes at the Factory. You talk to him, trying to make the best out of your explanation. Ned is sunken under mountains of paperwork and his expression is unreadable. You make your case.He lifts up his voice. “You are already sleeping alone and you have a room for yourself, but if you want another room, I can arrange somethings. Now leave.” This feels like a small victory. Until you get the official memo a few hours later.“Xenerith Order Factory Memo 00678”From now on, Priere’s old room will be under renovations.Priere has been relocated as a roommate with Blümelein. - Signed, Ned”Gain:[Priere’s Old Bedroom] - Your old solo bedroom at The Factory. At the moment, it’s completely bare with no furniture. For the next turn (Turn 8), it can’t be used due to renovations. New Roommate - You are now sharing bedroom with Blümelein.>13 - Special Friday the 13th fail!You designate the area that is your old bed room as your territory with the spell. You focus your energy, mind and soul into it. After you are done, the room feels… yours. You are ready to take a nap on it when Ned barges in with a team of lower rank members. “Okay, time to remove everything and leave this place for Priere. Dismantle the beds, the closets and the bookcases. Move, move, move!”You try to ask him what in the world is he doing. He says that your room will be done in a week, if you want to rest, share the bunk bed with Blumelein. You feel defeated. [Priere’s Old Bedroom] - It has been designated as your territory. As this turn, unusable.
>>2471948[Zoot]>37 - M"Hey buddy! Where I come from, going out somewhere and shooting guns is a fun way to pass the time. So let's get to know each other better by wasting some lead!"You spend a whole day shooting with Kaiiv, and he even arranges a improvised but well made shooting range for the two of you. Surprisingly, he is no amateur at this, revealing that he always had some interest in fire arms as they are usually more reliable than having to risk yourself at close range, but he usually shoots at some gentleman's shooting club for lower high class people in the outskirts of the city.“You know what, I think that it would maybe be better if we had more company at this sort of reunions… Why don’t you invite some of your outsider friends for one of my parties one month from now? I think it would be a good opportunity to introduce them to more classy surroundings and guests.”>Received [Invite letters for the Kaiiv Phantomblood’s party.] (Expires in 4 turns.)>Discovered the location of the [Gentleman’s Shooting Range.]>9 - Free ActionI walk up to the two guys guarding the door. "Hey guys, I found this pamphlet about your kool kid klub. I thought, man these dudes look cool, so I came to talk to your boss to see about joining! So yeah, can I go see him?" I say with a winning smile."Hey guys, I found this pamphlet about your kool kid klub. I thought, man these dudes look cool, so I came to talk to your boss to see about joining! So yeah, can I go see him?"I say with a winning smile.You get a bat to the face.When you finally get to meet the leader of the cult, you have a sack over your head and your hands are tied up. You hear a voice commanding you: “Speak” Status: Redfaced - You are now at 150 HP blue] You can now RP with the Cult Leader. You only know him as the Cult Leader.>75 - MSadly, you don’t have time to catch up as you are imprisoned in a cell. But your anxiety in getting out let you take notice of your surroundings and create many escaping plans in a short amount of time. You also, manage to convince the nearby guards that it was all a misunderstanding, nearing their guard with you even if they are “just following orders”... There is also the strange animalistic noises in the cell next to you that they don’t want to talk about, so you may be able to use that.[Escape Plan’s] - Bonus +1’ on all escaping actions next turn. Trying to escape costs a Major Action.Cellmate - You can probably try to free whoever is on the next cell in your attempt to escape, it might raise a commotion and serve as distraction, even if you don’t know the full consequences of that. Takes a minor action.
>>2472000[Tatsuo]>60 - MYou grab a piece of toast, slipping the almost perfect piece of brown bread into your mouth, as you start running after the hive expedition and catching up in decent time, not even worn out as you take deep but even breaths. You even had time to stop and pick up blume, the girl standing exhausted on the road, panting as you decide to give them a helping hand and carry them the rest of the way.See Wagons and Campfire Section.Carrying and helping everyone out to the wagons, has left you exhausted as well. [Status Effect: Exhaustion - +5 to all relaxation rolls and minus -10 to physical rolls for all of next turn.]>13 - Special Friday the 13th fail!Taking a deep breath you ball up your hand into a fist as you focus yourself, your body moving as one as you feel your energy fill your fist as it collides with the trunk of the tree, then pain move up your arm as your attempt to crush your guard ends up with you hurting your hand, recoiling in pain as you pull your knuckle close to your chest and try not to cry. You can even feel a few splinters in your knuckles. Status: Crushed Fist - You have lost 40 HP.>37 - m>Suggest to the Order personnel with us that maybe, we should make sure every outsider trains during the trip, so we're at our best during the raid itself.You manage to get one of the order personnel to listen to your advice, going into a brief explanation on the benefits and logic behind organizing training before the raid as preparation, the order member, Stephen, nods along as you make each point. When you’re finished he thanks you for your proposition and says he’ll think over the logistics and benefits of instituting such an idea, you get a vague feeling that he was only really listening to you out of obligation as he goes back to his duties.>ExtraSome young noble guy just joined the raid after using his connections and fame as an adventurer to persuade the order that he could give far more help than problems by following you. But it looks like he can’t manage to spend more than one hour without starting some “action”.One day, on your way to take a bath in a river, you find out that he got there first, he looks at your naked body for one moment and goes: “You look like a trained and worthy warrior that has gone through many fights before… COME! FIGHT ME! THE WINNER GETS A MEAL FROM THE LOSER ON THE NEXT TOWN!”[Live-Action Event if you accept.]
>>2472004[Fredrick]>95 - MYou take the time to put words to paper and ink to page as you begin the process of writing down your gatherings on light magic, steady progress and regular inspiration comes to you as you write and rewrite pages, condensing some parts, expanding others, simplifying what you can and going into detail when you think needed, adding the odd footnote or so when you can. When you’re finally finished a sigh of relief escapes your lips as your thumb and index finger move to rub your tired eyes as you let the ink on the final pages dry, pleased with what you’ve made.>Gain: Light Magic: Primer - Text- A informative introductory text on light magic and using it, that can be given to others or kept to yourself, reading it gives a +10 in understanding light magic, and can be done with a minor action, no roll required.>43 - MYou become familiar with the feeling of sweat pouring off you and your lungs burning like fire as you force air in and out of your lungs. Chasing after the expedition group that left before you were ready. Your legs start to feel weak and your legs shaky before you finally manage to make it to them, feeling some internal relief among the internal suffering as you finally join the group. Considering if you should try relaxing it on the exercise for a while.See Wagons and Campfire Section.Status Effect: Winded up - Lasts: 1 turn. You feel winded up.
>>2514957[Cont.]>88 - mWhile still tired from your run, you remember that you still have information to find, and hopefully, to divulge to the rest of the group. You continue back into your studies, even with what limited materials you have, out here on the road. You learn much of the Bees, and, unsurprisingly, they share most, if not all, of their anatomical similarities to regular bees. Aside from the...yaknow. Demon Magics. Although this does give you some insight into their strengths and weaknesses, as they are...Well, BEES. However, the most shocking revelation of all, is that they haven’t even HEARD of a Jaffa! Uncivilized Savages!You learn a collection of interesting facts about them from the people who had the misfortune of encountering them:The Kingdom estimates that their number may variate between 30~60 at total, considering that even the workers are able to fight and participate on raids.Only a fraction of those, lesser than a third, should be Soldiers.They kidnap children for who knows what purposes, and seems to eat anything, as they collect cattle, wild animals, fruits, crops and even entire trees from the places they fly over.They have an interest in weapons and precious items, like jewels and magical artefacts, but don’t seem interested in firearms or armors, even if they have been seen stealing expensive or “cute” clothes.They rarely talk to their victims, but in those rare instances they have expressed an opinion of superiority over humans, seeing humanity as an “less evolved” race, and have expressed an interest in “cute things”, even if they seem to be disgusted with children.They seem to have originated from corrupted beings, as it has happened before with other strange races of beings. Such creatures are usually called by scholars as “Corrupted Critters”, being made from intentional demonic manipulation. They take much time to be made, but usually don’t live long, having short time spans and necessitating great amounts of mana or life force to survive, and expressing increased amounts of mutations across their generations(as it is common that they reproduce fast).They can’t swim, every bee that was taken down and fell into water has drowned… It seems as if their wings pulled them into the depths as some sort of mystical weakness.There are at least two accounts of them mentioning “Princesses” and six of them mentioning “The Queen”. But those beings were never seen.[cont.]
>>2514959They appear to have at least three classes: Workers, Soldiers and Nobility.Soldier bees are uncommon, but have a powerful exoskeleton and are trained in fighting skills, with male appearances and usually using martial weapons. Workers are all female, have some minor boost focused combat magic, but are far from strong as soldiers. Nobility never was seen.There seems to be a new type of military unit being used by them… Pairs of “Riders” Soldiers and Bee “Mounts”. In other words, bee soldiers mounting on giant bees.Sometimes, they are seem being followed by giant bees as big as dogs that are commanded without need for vocal commands and are able of throwing electrical blasts. Rumors say that those beings are rare critters only ever seen in a mountain far deep into the countryside, but nobody has confirmed it yet.
>>2472300[Helsing]>75 - MYou begin your meticulous study of the reaction between healing magic and life runes, taking notes on the effects when interacting with each other, after some prolonged study you manage to draw your conclusion, when healing magic is funneled or exposed to a large quantity of life runes via some implement, like say a glove bearing the rune, certain healing magics are amplified by it. You even got an idea for a spell in the general vein of the type of healing magic that can be boosted.>NEW SKILLRegeneration (Inspiration) - Cost: 20 TP - Select a target within 15 feet of the caster and imbue them with a regenerative effect healing 1d10+inspiration*2 once a turn for 3 turns. Casted with Healing Runes mechanism, may have special effect.>21 - MYou attempt the novel idea of combining runes to create a combination that will under ideal circumstances, enhance magic when channeled through it, sort of like a magic aid to boost spells and such. Getting to work carving the runes as you can already feel the arcane energies taking shape, a light hum of power can be sensed so to speak by you as you meticulously work. Once completed you push magical energy through it for a spell, the runes coming to life before it just..doesn’t work. It’s not a bang or anything amazing, the spell just breaks down and the energy disperses, leaving you feel unsatisfied. >59 - mTaking the time to rest and relax as you sit around a campfire with your fellow outsiders, taking in the heat from the campfire to warm you as the night air chills you, you all look at each other with passing glances. Other worlds, such fantastic things, but seemingly real nonetheless…[You can freely RP with your fellow Outsiders.]>ExtraSome young noble guy just joined the raid after using his connections and fame as an adventurer to persuade the order that he could give far more help than problems by following you. But it looks like he can’t manage to spend more than one hour without starting some “action”.You find him examining your research like he totally get it… Without your permission and when caught he just ignores your reaction and starts correcting your assumptions on how the interplay between specific runes work. He says he could give you some help with it if you put some good word about him with Vira Vesperia. He also needs some apple pie, because of , uh, reasons.
>>2475456[Blumelein Von Abenthot]>31 - MYou look into some way to improve your deringer and well...you hit a wall. Doing it the mundane way isn’t feasible, you’d need to change the ammo type and at that point you would basically need to overhaul the entire pistol, which is basically just getting a new one at that point, you can’t find anyone to enchant it so the magic route is out. So you’re kind of stuck, if you want more stopping power you’ll probably need to get a new gun.>10 - mYou approach Gilbert and try to offer him an apology, hoping to make some sort of amends between you two, a simple gesture, but one you hope will work, that hope is quickly dashed when he makes it clear that he says that he finds it fake, followed by you trying to plead your case and convince him of your honesty, this attempted apology leading into a light debate, which quickly becomes a heated argument, voices getting loud and faces getting red as you begin shouting personal insults at each other, the head gunsmith holding himself in as he avoids saying anything not fit to be heard by a child. It’s when you get on the topic of his mother that you see him take a deep breath, red faced and gritted teeth as you hear him say a single word.“Out.”And that’s how you find yourself standing outside of his office again as a door slam echoes through the hallways...that did not go as planned. Status: ‘Limited Supply’ - Imposes a -15 debuff on any rolls to requisition items from Gilbert until you smooth things over with him. >22 - MAs soon as you catch word of the expedition having left you’re already chasing after it, dropping everything as you run after the group on your short child legs. Your lungs start to burn and your brow begins to sweat as you keep running. At some point you feel like you’ll drop from exhaustion as you finally realize you’re not going to catch up to them. Disappointment fills you before you see Tatsuo jogging by, the outside helping you make it to the group by carrying you.[Status Effect: Exhaustion - +5 to all relaxation rolls and minus -10 to physical rolls for all of next turn.]
>>2476567[Malcolm]>46Taking the time to practice your skill with a bow you decide to test yourself in the fight arena with some makeshift dummies for target practice. Letting loose arrows as you slip into a rhythm of taking out the arrow nocking followed by release, rinsing and repeating until you’ve emptied the quiver, then repeating. You keep this up as you feel your wide shots tighten more and more as your general accuracy improves. When it’s done you feel you’ve made some progress, even if it wasn’t much.NEW SKILL:Archery (Finesse) - Passive - +1 to accuracy rolls when using a bow or crossbow.Experience and trained dexterity with aiming and keeping your arrows and bolts steady.>85 - MNow that you are out of the hospital and far from any persons needing immediate assistance, you find yourself without any real targets for practice. Trying to work with what you have, you decide to focus in a new path of improving your power by focusing inward instead of outward. You wake up earlier than usual and spend your hours before breakfast immersed in some variation of a meditative state, trying to summon the energy from the deepest parts of your being and channeling the ambient mana through it in order to get a greater and more steady influx of vital energies… A such dense amount of energy that it actually turns visible, becoming a glowing sphere of energy between the palms of your hand.You keep doing this day after day, questioning yourself about the real possible applications of such power, until you finally get a testing subject for it when one of the guards fall from the bank of a river and hurt himself on the stones down border of the water. You quickly reach him after the fall, and after the usual applications of medicine and healing magic, you try your new powers on him, healing the most of his injuries with far more potency than usual.The members of the order thank you for your help with sincere smiles and serious words of praise.Cure Intermediate Wounds (Inspiration) - Costs 40TP - As a Major Combat Action, choose a living target within 15 feet: recover that target's HP by an amount equal to 6d20+Inspiration*2. This is a spell.Stronger version of the most common healing spell.[Cont.]
>>2514970>95 - m”Who exactly are they?”Worried about the situation with your noble friend, you start asking around about her family, at first you get vague notions about them: Any commoner seems to know about the house, as they are one of the biggest and oldest noble houses around, and are usually liked by the people despite the usual negative views people hold about their regents… but that's when things get interesting.One day, when the caravan does a quick stop at some village for information and fresh food, you see a large group of teenage girls flocking around one table at the only restaurant in town. And when you ask about what's going on one of the bystanders explains that it is just the youngest son of the local baron stopping by at the village as he does every week, before going out in adventures to make a name for himself. Usually, you wouldn’t get involved, but you end up learning from the same guy that the baron’s son is named Michael Goldheart… And you decide that it might not be a bad idea sticking around to learn something about his clan.Sadly, it doesn’t go as planned, as he seems to recognize you for an outsider and stops the shower of attention and praise he is getting from the ladies to come talk to you.“Greetings, noble fellow adventurer! My name is Michael Goldheart, and it’s my pleasure to make acquaintance of such a rare breed like one such as yourself. What brings the order and the outsiders to such great lengths from their base? As the son of the local regent of these lands, and a fellow adventurer, it would be my pleasure to grant any help that I might bring upon your quest!”You try to refrain from the details of the mission, and about what made you approach him, but somehow he gets the gist of what is happening involving the caravan, and decides on…. Joining the group.So, in a few hours, there is more than a dozen girls almost crying from having to see him off to some quest again, as the wagons take off from the village. And as the first outsider that he talked to, he starts to follow you around and tell you about his adventures non-stop. You start wondering if he is going to be a problem, but surprising enough, he seems to realize after a few hours that he is being a bore, and change subjects to more amenable topics, while giving you some space.[Cont.]
>>2514973Some days after this, you realize you still hadn’t the chance to talk with him about what you wanted, but he approaches you before you have to, and after some talk, he gets on the topic without much thought:“My clan is probably the biggest clan in numbers, and the second in influence and territories on the whole country, and that is without mentioning that when someone thinks of a old noble family they probably think of us first, as we were already numerous even before the kingdom formally existed… But instead of what you may have in mind for people with such description, or clan originally descended from one of the summoned heroes of legend, and because of that we kept our tradition as warriors and adventurers, preferring to take upon our own hands the problems that happened in our lands, instead of leaving it to guards and politic… About your friend, I actually know her… Her lands aren’t that far from here, and she is one of my third degree cousins, if it matters anything… I don’t know what she has in mind with this whole story, though, but I guess that she wouldn’t leave a free-pass for her lands if she didn’t want you to show up, if my Goldhearted adventurer senses are correct! Hehehehehehehe....”“Oh, but before you decide to do something crazy, let me just give you a little piece of advice… Her mother is a Lovecraft, and they’re… Strange… I mean… They married with a bunch of northern “swamp-folk” and now the same blood of the weird legends that are told up there flow through their veins… There is talk about Amelie family in that sense… Uhhh how can I explain it… Ah, don’t matter, you’ll probably get it if you go there.”>[Met: Michael Goldheart, Adventurer Noble.]

You tried to train with him at The Factory, where you met him, but he simply didn’t showed up this week. There have been some rumors about him running a private swordsmanship school, but there are no confirmed locartions for that place. You imaple the dummies at the training area again and again, but you start to feel the need for a tutor. [Practiced Efforts] - Gain a +10 to the next time you try to learn a skill.>19 - MAs you pack a pouch with supplies to last until you catch up with the Caravan, you get closed by [Higher Up Member of the Xenerith Order] “You are already a member of our Guard, Neo. We cannot let you go.”For every point and argument you try to make, he has a stronger rebuttal. You can’t simply win at the word game with this guy. He makes a strong case in pointing out that if you leave, the base will simple be left alone with no strong fighter to defend it. You understand.You feel that staying here is a complete waste of time. [Choice: Should I stay or should I go?] - You have to choice to stay at the Factory with no penalty. Or try and chase the Caravan group with a reprimand when you come back.
>>2472018[Argus]>18 - MThen, after having found out all I could about runes, I will stick with regular enchanting, a question burning in my mind: can they be stacked? It seemed like they /could/, but I had no aptitude for it.Getting to work you begin runecrafting, starting the arduous task of carving runes out, stacking runes on top of each other as you feel some sort of humming, before what follows is a glowing, followed by some sort of low shaking, the light starts to pick up and become a blinding white and you swear it’s about to explode in your face before the light just disappears in an instant, both the runes you stacked on top of each other entirely inert. Well that was a bust, and you also get the sense that some of your understanding on how runes work was off at the outset…[Status Effect: Exploded Face] - You lose 40 HP>78 - MOkay, the thing with runes was a bust, but you have a good feeling with this. You feel yourself focus as you feel magic follow mind, focusing on the object as you start to weave enchantments on it, you feel sweat on your brow during the entire process, trying to keep your focus trained before you feel some great release, heat and electricity playing in tandem as you feel like you made some great breakthrough. That relief quickly turns into terror as that heat becomes fire and that electricity becomes bolts of energy that you have to dodge, but it lasts only some seconds before everything is calm again.Dual Minor Enchants (Industry) - The ability to enchant an object with two minor enchantments.Ability to stack two MINOR Enchantments.]
>>2485742[Isaac Thorne]>7 - MBeing a guard, as you think to yourself, will be a tough job. Not just physically, with your duties requiring you to be fighting capable, but mentally, as the strain of a combat at any moment in time can become heavy upon a man. You decide that you will take this role Seriously, and that no Injury will stand in your way. You start off with some jogging around in armor, to become further accustomed to it at long periods of time, and in physical activity. It works well enough, but you still feel you could do more. You practice with your provided weapons, but even as you bleed the skin on your knuckles dry, you feel you could do MORE. Finally, you decide to train your strength, by attacking some trees. Tatso seemed to punch trees all the time, and he was fine. The activity goes well enough, and eventually, you even punch one down.However, as you think praise to yourself, you fail to notice that the tree, by whatever circumstances, was already weakened, and was about to fall over from your continued attacks. No issue, you think to yourself, as you step out of the w- Or, at least you were GOING to, before you tripped over a root, and were only left to watch in horror as the tree collapsed on top of you. Eventually, you recover and head back, but the damage is done. You think you might’ve even broken a rib or two...You need to rest.[Status Effect: Crushed] - You have been crushed by a tree. You are now at 125 HP.[Status Effect: Broken Ribcage] - You have been crushed by a tree. All physical actions get a -10>45 - MFollowing your respectful defeat at the hands of the Tree, you settle with doing some good ol’ fashioned research, on something you KNOW you know more about. Electricity. You start by going to the order, and asking the current status of electricity in the city. Two men share a glance with eachother, before nodding, and taking you to a rudimentary power grid, set in a less populated area of the city. The men say that the Grid was created by an outsider, a long time ago, but the outsider in question has long since disappeared. You look around at the grid, after asking one of the men kindly to get you a map of the structure. While Inspecting, you are told that the upper class, or more specifically, 10% of the city, has access to electricity. The power grid itself is of substantial quality, enough to remain functional after what you could guess is...Well, you don’t know, but still some time. You eventually get the map, thank the men, and are left on your own, with the Knowledge of the power situation.Gain[Map of the Burthic Power Grid] - Gives a +5 bonus when using it in the known area: Burthic.[Cont]
>>2515032>22 - mLastly in the week, despite your injuries, you continue with your rounds. What kind of man would you be if you let a few broken bits stop you from your job? Eventually, an hour into a patrol one day, you come across this odd looking structure close to the forest and the city. Curiosity getting the better of you, you poke at it a bit.OHDEARGODTHISWASATERRIBLEIDEA-The thing was a SPIDER NEST, and after aggressively breaking into their home, they don’t take to you very kindly! They seemed hungry, and unfortunately, you were not on the menu! You ran away, as fast as your mangled body could carry you, and eventually, you end up back close to the Factory. Out of breath, Wheezing, you mentally hi-five yourself for your accomplishment of not dying a horrible death.

You feel a little frustrated as you make a little headway, left fuming over how you’re going to get this stealth thing done.[Practiced Efforts continues into the next turn as a +5 modifier, disappearing after that turn]>108 - MTrying to forget about your frustrations you move on to chaining together attacks, taking some poor tree to be your victim, you start throwing yourself in to it but it feels odd, clunky, after a certain point, the second or third attack, the chain breaks and you slip up, maybe your stance breaks maybe you get a bit too tired or maybe you slash at a wrong angle, tired, frustrated as you keep trying to figure out that sweet spot where you can slip into a series of attacks and just keep going, and you feel something click together, you move effortlessly from that third slash to a fourth, then a fifth, before moving on to a sixth, forgetting the weight on your body as you just dance. Scores of slash marks making itself apparent on the tree as you dance away, going and going until you can’t anymore, having lost count of how many you did as you sit infront of it...that went much better then you thought.Stardust Barrage (Finesse) - Costs 20 TP - Make an attack against a target within melee range.

A sleeping deer, the thing still as it rests on the forest floor, managing to make your way to it even with the slight hiccup that would normally give way to your presence as you fumble at your belt to take the knife out, drawing it and slitting its throat as it bleeds on to the ground, smelling something slightly funny that you ignore as you drag it back to camp, only to get a disgusted look from one of the order personnel who is quick to point out that the deer is rotted to the point of being inedible, you finally noticing the rotted and marred corpse that you had dragged back, dropping it down with disgust. Guess that dead deer was dead for a little too long…>ExtraSome young noble guy just joined the raid after using his conections and fame as an adventurer to persuade the order that he could give far more help than problems by following you… But it looks like he can’t manage to spend more than one hour without starting some “action”.Someday he manages to discover that you’re involved with the kitchen duties, and returns with big sack full of apples and ask you to make an apple pie for him, a quite funny sight to behold considering he uses full plate armor and giant sword in his back 90% of the time. For some reason, though, he doesn’t take you serious as an adult… And keep head patting you and telling you how cute you are.

Most of the kitchen staff find it creepy that you just sit there at an empty table, staring blankly into space, or perhaps, into their eyes. You know this is what they are thinking because of course, you were able to read their mind.However, this spell is not without limitations. Sometimes, their thoughts are too muddled, or their wills are too strong to be read. Occasionally, you find yourself dizzy, unable to read their thoughts. This power is much more draining compared to your Telepathy, and the range is much smaller in comparison. Still, this might be useful in the future.>Learned: Read Surface Thoughts (Inspiration) - Costs 20 TP.

>>2515041>90 - MYou enter the forest with the desire to expand your power… your psychic powers are very potent, and you believe that domination of a being, no matter how small, is an important stepping stone to greater heights. You start with small animals, like squirrels, birds, and forest mice. They are easy enough to control. However, bigger creatures such as wolves are harder to dominate. Perhaps they are out of your reach for now.Still, you notice that miniscule creatures like insects can be easily controlled… in large numbers, no less. Entire swarms of insects can be brought to your will. You're certain you could apply this same concept to smaller animals, but… Bringing so many creatures under your control is taxing. You'll just have to work on it. Insects are easy enough; their simplistic minds should allow you to dominate them en masse. Learned:Dominate Vermin (Sorcery): Binds 20 TP. As a Major Combat Action, target a small creature such as a rat, a bird, or an insect within 30 feet: if that target chooses to resist you, contest your Sorcery against their Resolve.

Despite the map being written in a language you don’t initially recognize. However, despite that language shift, you easily understand it. You figure this is a result of the ritual that pulled you to this world in the first place. The map portrays the area around Burhtic, from the plains to the forests to the hills around. What the map fails to describe are the other nations, but regardless, this map will work for the area you’re in.

After that taking a second go at it but this time opting to keep that chill over and on you, as a thick cloak of ice begins to coalesce and cover your arm, when the spell is complete covering you in icy armor.

>>2522599"I don't believe any of us would make a convincing bee-person. There's an easier and simpler way to get to where the captives are that you've all overlooked."I pause for dramatic effect."We just need to let ourselves get 'captured'."
