You are Tomoe, a RONIN, and for the past few months, a WANTED WOMANPrevious threads:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=Hedge+QuestIt's been quite some time since you had to evade the law due to a misunderstanding involving the murder of foreign royalty. It wasn't long after that not just the city of Ophelie, but the entire country was on high alert. Thankfully a halfling artificer of shady repute, Emery, has helped you hide out since then. He's even fixed up your little tin can robot friend, and you haven't had to pay for either yet!Though, with all that time gone by, you can't have just been lazing on his couch, right?

A leaf of CRIME! If the Westerners here want to label you a criminal, then that's what you'll give them! Of course, you do it your own way, the right way. Your Morality still holds strong within you.[...]You awaken once more, stretching and yawning as you take a seat on the edge of your bed. Your room in Emery's home is warm and cozy. You'd almost think you were back home with a little redecorating, and maybe without the almost constant noises of tinkering coming from the other side of the wall. In incense burns the familiar, calming scent of oranges, tea, and mint leave into the air.You rub your eyes after another yawn, the day open before you>Check your things>Examine your room>Leave the room>Write-in

Your mattress is nice and soft, a wardrobe beside the bed houses your clothing, and you even have a changing screen. No windows, but a small vent in the ceiling keeps your room from becoming a smoke trap. You've constructed a small shrine from your homeland. Even if the country has been corrupted, you remain one of the few bastions of the Conscience's will. Across the way you see your soldier still napping. He even has a bed!

You find about what you expect:-Iron Tessen-Leftover snacks for the road-An old bow with a few arrows-Some breaking and entering tools you've yet to use-A coinpurse of western currency-A DIY guide on artifice repair written by EmeryMoving over your wardrobe, you give your little robot a quick pat on the head before you open up the doors. You find a couple of outfits acquired since you've been here. Sadly, you never were able to recover your old clothes from the storage tent as they were confiscated by the city guard as evidence. You do, however, still have your ever trusty scarf! It still smells like home.Looking at these outfits has made you realize, you have been getting a bit chubby... And it's that damned Halfling's fault! If he weren't such a good cook, you wouldn't be eating the big meals he makes! How he manages to eat so much and still be so tiny you'll never understand.You weren't all that sneaky before, if you were you probably wouldn't be in this situation. This tummy certainly won't be helping.

Artifice tools, leftover scrap materials, and half-finished mechanical devices are scattered about all over. Just across the way, fiddling with a pile of junk on his workbench, you spot the little man himself. Emery wipes his brow and turns back to look at you."Hey, you're finally awake.

Emery asks while he tilts his head at you. "What, you mean like, become a political assassin? I guess you do have experience with that icky stiff."He puts his wrench up to his chin and thinks the possibility over, then shakes his head at you. "There's no way you could pull that off! With the country on high alert, and the nobles under heavy guard, trying to get a meeting alone with them would be suicide! And don't forget, it's bound to draw a lot of unwanted attention! If I get a team of royal executioners knocking down my door because of you, I'll haunt you for the rest of our life!"It certainly sounds rife with risk, but the payoff... is it worth it?>Of course it is!

You don't see it over there in the East or something?"Emery turns back around and leans against his workbench, taking the opportunity to clean his goggles before he begins. "Le Fantôme de la Lune --The Phantom of the Moon-- is pretty much what it sounds like. Every year on the Autumnal Equinox, a spectral reflection of the Moon can be seen appearing at its side. During this night, all the dead rise from their graves, crypts, and mausoleums for a grand festival we call The Danse Macabre. Specters, skeletons, vampires, and all other types of undead celebrate with grand balls and masquerades, costumes and the giving of sweets. The living often join in as well, especially the children."He rubs the back of his head. "It's er... also a time of year where pranks run rampant. So... watch your back, front, and sides. Even your up and down, you never know.""As for the Phantom itself, well... I'm no expert, but from what I remember it's the spirit of a second moon that died a few ages ago. You'll eh, have to ask one of them scholar mages if you want the full story. They're the ones they say caused it." Emery shrugs.Hm... interesting. Such a thing as the dead rising to dance has never happened back in your homeland. As far as you know, there's only ever been one Moon. Tsukiko, the divine wife of your country's founding ancestor.

"Their guild, academy, covenant, whatever they call it, is right outside the royal castle itself." He explains. "It's... really big, you can't miss it. But uh, be careful if you go there. You can never be too careful around wizards..."Stepping through the only portal out of the workshop, you find yourself standing in one of the dark alleys of the Ophelian Docks.

It isn't long before you peek past a bookcase and find yourself face to face with a series of absolutely towering stacks of books! At the very top of the nearest one sits a pale woman in fine clothing. She looks down at you from her perch and grins, showing off a pair of sharp white fangs."Oho! Another little mortal comes before me." she announces. "What, pray tell, would this one have of an eternal being such as I, hmm~?"She does look to have a lot of books in her possession at the moment.

Does the other moon also have a spirit? And has she ever heard of Tsukiko?"You ask about The Phantom of the Moon? I see, you must be a foreigner then!" The vampire claps her hands together excitedly!"And one interested in history as well! Lucky me, it's been far too long since I was able to share my passion with a fellow historian~!"With a supernatural pep in her step, she hops down from the precarious tower with almost weightless agility. Within a moment, she is at your side leading you over to a nearby window. The pale woman points into the night sky, swishing her finger towards the moon and stars."Indeed, the Phantom is a celestial phenomenon exclusive to this slice of the continent! Every country around here has its own name and omens for it. Cultural differences, you understand. I won't bore you by droning on about them, you want to know why it appears!" "It goes back a few ages --before even my embrace-- to the waning years of the old Occidental Empire and its conflict with a powerful covenant of mad magi. If you can believe it, in days long past we had more than one moon to light the night sky! A second moon, worshipped as a god of the dead, danced across the night sky by the side of its sibling. That was until the covenant conducted some sort of ritual to destroy the second moon and sends its pieces raining down upon the lands of the Empire. The costal capital province, what's now called the Lunar Gulf, was reduced to a crater and flooded. Records say it was a horrifying spectacle, and the resulting chaos of the other moonfalls plagued the area for generations afterwards."She closes her eyes, her expression somber"Eventually remnants of the Occident banded together to wash a brutal tide of death over the covenant, razing them to the ground, salting the earth they lived upon, and burning their research. This and a few other tales of magical abuse are why the arts are so heavily regulated and controlled now. In most of the civilized world, hedge magi are forced to join a civilized institute, or be put to death."She waves her hand and shakes her head, smiling with a small titter. "Oh, but I'm getting off topic. The Phantom! Once the ashes had settled and the covenant destroyed, the remains of the once proud nation would perform one last act together before their eventual splintering into the beginnings of the countries we have today. They would perform a grand rite on this very night all that time ago to call the dead moon back to the mortal plane. Grateful to its worshippers, the moon of death would thank them by reviving their lost loved ones for a single night of reverie.">Continued
>>4553071>Ask if she knows about spirits of the Red Star, Phyrus or Shiho."Oh, there's so many things happening in the heavens it's hard to keep track of them all! All across the world, there are different celestial events. Your accent is from the east, yes? It's been quite some time since I was out that far. Have the constellations, or rather their meanings, shifted I wonder..."She sits herself up on the lip of the window with a fanged smile."I will have to ask you later. Consider it payment for this little lesson~">Ask what she's doing with all these stacks of books"These?" She says, gesturing towards the many towers of knowledge. Her cold cheeks actually flush with color for a second before she looks away, trying to take attention from them."Ah, well, you know... Ahaha, the inner machinations of an eternal mind like my own would require an explanation that would elude your mortal comprehension.

It's honestly a sad state of affairs." The vampire shakes her head as she plucks a geography book from one of the stacks, opening it up to a map of the Occident"It used to be just wonderful, now look at it! All these petty kingdoms and toll booth castles! Don't even get me started on the border gore, eugh!"All the names mean very little to you, except for the few you've heard during your time hear. That being the one you're currently in, Etienne, and their northern neighbor, New Caudlin. You guesstimate that the small dip in the cost must be around where Ophelie lies!>Ask about her"Eh? You... want to know about me?"She weaves her fingers together before lightly waggling them. "I ah... well, what would you like to know...?">What would you like to know?

Apologies, it completely slipped my mind to give a proper introduction!"The vampire straightens her fine clothing, fixes her hair, and gives her cape a small flick. "You may call me Grand Historian Helga von Blumenthal of Clan Rhine! The Eternal Maiden, Scribe of the Flower Valley, Childe of the Nachtkaiserin, Blessed of Beauty, Diplomat of Schattenburg, Shadow of the Dwarven Peaks, Seeker of What is Lost, Keeper of the Purest Bloodline, Heiress of Mortal Lands, She Chosen By the Moon, Bastion of the Old Generations, The Temperate, The Cultured, Mistress of the Omnitongue, Speaker of Endless Words... a-and many more, but you get the idea!"She smiles holding her head up proudly with a slight flush on her face"In short, Helga is my name! And yours?">Are you a Princess? Do you know any?"Well... I wouldn't necessarily call myself a princess, but..."Helga fiddles with one of the buttons on her coat"I am the childe of Countess Ana-Maria, soon-to-be ruler of the countries to the far south-east of here. Ah, but I'm sure jabbering on about politics would bore you, no? Tell me, what has brought you so far west, Eastling?">What do you do?
>>4556749>Pat her head and call her cute
>>4556749>Tell me, what has brought you so far west, Eastling?"We came here to show the West our superior culture. Unfortunately, the ungrateful pigs not only rejected us but branded us a criminal. Now we’re going to take some princesses under our wing and teach them our amazing Eastern ways
>>4556749I'll second this: >>4556765Stupid W*sterners. We didn't even do anything wrong. But we will not kowtow to the system that has wrongfully accused us. We've done enough of that for one lifetime.
>>4556749>Tomoe, Ronin>You seek to not only demonstrate your skill to the people of the west, but to it's deadly wildlife as well! None across the continent shall not have heard of your deeds! Now it's only a matter of starting...>Pat her head and call her cuteThe last one's especially important.
>>4556749>childeAlso... Helga just said this word kind of weirdly. Is that some kind of strange accent? What's up with that?
>>4556993Its a world of darkness reference. vampires in Masquerade and Requiem call their spawn Childes, childe, childes...etc.

Perhaps politics may interest you after all!"You give Helga a pat on the head and call her cute. The mild annoyance on her face is clear by her frown and furrowed brow, but she simply takes a breath and nods"...Thank you."She listens to your tale of false accusation with a face of sympathy, but raises an eyebrow once you mention your plan."You... are going to take princesses under your wing? As a fugitive, I would imagine that would be difficult. Unless..."The vampire clears her throat and shows you a polite smile"No, never mind. I'm sure you wouldn't do something silly that would needlessly endanger your own life!">What do you do?
>>4558806>MUST PROTECT SMALL AND CUTE VAMPIRE
>>4558806>Saaaaay, do you have some kind of old plan to the Palace?>Maybe you might be willing to give me a tour if you know it well?>... I'll give you more headpats if you don't.
>>4558806Of course! That's why I need some plans for the palace so such things cannot happen.
>>4558806>You should not underestimate my capacity for silly things, little one.>Grab her and leave, she's princess-y enough.
>>4558806Kidnap her. She'll do.
