Duty Session 373: Karluin Reclamation - Town Baroness Wake Finished 1634698882 Even with the defeat of the fifth floor boss, Karluin is still a monster-infested ruin filled with precarious traps, ancient dangers and just plain old fashioned half-collapsed architecture. Though dilapidated, the goblin settlement in the area is deeply rooted and will need a good deal of effort from intrepid Adventurers to clear out... But it'll all be worth it. Once reclaimed, the fortress of Karluin will be a second or third home for Adventurers making their way up the tower. It's not like they have much choice; the way up is right smack dab in the middle of the old fort, and leaving it to rot will just make getting to the sixth floor that much more difficult.

The long task begins with exterminating monsters still lurking in the castle-town surrounding Karluin's mysterious central keep. Only then can the walls be secured and progress can begin on securing the fortress' heart.

The workshop is still small in it's developing stages and not entirely free. Plant Hwyaden is asking that those wishing to share their expertise and research the ongoing anomalies in the higher level recipes consider allying with the workshop using a Discovery Contract, which prevents abuse from either side.

OOC Note: This is a social/research scene where information will be shared and research done on the crafting system. Right now the Workshop has a focus on Artisany, Forging, Cooking, Tailoring and Alchemy. Though all crafting concepts are welcome, those listed have better support.

A 'Discovery' Contract is simply that the restoration of higher level recipes or the creation of any new recipe inside 'Ikigai' is the property of the creator, but that a portion of money made from that recipe going forwards goes to bettering the Workshop and Plant Hwyaden as a whole.

In Japan, it is customary for girls to give gifts to the men in thier lives for this particular holiday, leading to much whispering and gossip amongst the Landers.

While each of the Root Towns are hosting some manner of simple festivities, a more elaborate festival is being hosted within the Ninetails Dominion. Part in thanks for the aid of Adventurers who supported them during the recent Wave of Calamity, and in part to draw more business to the region. Setup has already begun in Dun Loireag for what promises to be a night of revelry.

Floor 1: The First Push Misa Takayama Finished 1595026800 Brave guilds, parties and soloers have been slowly poking at the first floor of Aincrad Tower. Progress has been slow due to uncertainty, low levels and a desire to avoid testing the Death theory. A wall has finally been hit where a larger push will be required to overcome it. As such, a strong, coordinated charge into the floor has been organized. Notices have been made. All Adventurers are invited.

Hellooooooo Adventurers! This is your host Misa Takayama. I'm going to be running a scene for the first major push into floor 1 of Aincrad Tower. THIS IS NOT THE FLOOR BOSS FIGHT. That will be coming later. But there will be fighting of mobs. EVERYONE IS INVITED. But I highly encourage to-be-eventually-formed Scale Emblem Alliance members to join in. It'll be a good hook for the formation of the guilds and subsequent alliance. After all, our whole alliance is basically focused on clearing the tower. But as I said, everyone is invited. I'm sure the majority of you have some reason to challenge the tower and the mobs inside.

It's unlikely to be card combat as I expect numbers to be too high for that... Though if the numbers do turn out to be small, I'm certainly happy to give a go at bossing in the card system. But I will try and come up with things to at least use dice rolls for.

I hope people will enjoy this!

Hard to focus on or describe details, this figure seems strange, otherworldy, only able to be seen at a distance, unable to be approached, seemingly headed towards the same distant location on the island. Some believe it to be a special event and so plan to gather at the location on the holiday itself.

Bibilan Dungeon Fukasa Yuri Finished 1605142800 Fukasa is recruiting people to explore a dungeon cave that she has disovered near Carmina Gadelica. This will be a GMed scene that likely will include skill checks, as well as possibly the card system for the final fight if I can figure out how to set up the NPC GMing thingy in such a way as to use it, if not probably just RPed out/skill checks for the final fight as well during the exploration. Due to its inspiration being Byalan Dungeon which has very few traps that aren't literally monsters (I'm looking at you you little devil-hydra 30-stacks :|), it will be a very exploration/combat-heavy scene with minimal traps as complications. If I get enough players to join, there will be possible card rewards as well! 421

The Bunwitching Hour Whiskey Sour Finished 1604202131 While the event says Bun-Bun Festival, that month lands in October - and ends on October Thirty-First. Halloween. The last day of October is also the time Daylight Savings ends, an hour entering a flux state. This is the year of the apocalypse, on top of all others... So surely, certainly, there is no special events planned, no rarespawns to battle, and not one single problem to be faced. Certainly. 433

That's never stopped any Adventurer once in their life.

Assisting people who are unable to defend themselves as they trudge slowly through dangerous environments on a preset path. When implemented well, they're a chore - when implemented poorly, they're a nightmare.

The merchant guilds and the People of the Land will pay handsomely to see this convoy deliver its goods - and its people - to the destination, and your group is needing to head that way anyway for your own reasons, so it's time to hitch up and hit the road. It can't be all that bad of a quest, right? Two days of travel will fly right on by.

     Adventurers have been recruited to begin investigating this matter, and figure out why the ants are suddenly beginning to act so peculiarly. At present, the reports on if the ants are aggressive or not is being rather conflicting. Some say they just take food and leave, others have said that they've been attacked with little provocation, so the hired adventurers should likely be ready for a fight!

However, not everything is as it seems. The instrument is not the weapon that they had hoped for. No... it does not harm, or drive off monsters. It enrages more powerful monsters who are nearby, painting a very large target on the Adventurers who created it.

(( Special rules will be in place. It will be explained at the start of the scene & in the HP Bar Object. ))

They even have a few magical shows and daring performers, along with a crazy jester who just /loves/ everyone. All are welcome, so long as they don't mind being out at nighttime.

However, there have been some strange things going on...

Some folks end up missing. Some say they are those who work there that look like those who have gone missing, but seem to be mistaken at closer inspection.

There is a mystery here and it might be a deadly one.

Duty Session 208: Karluin Reclamation - Town Prophylaxis Finished 1612284008 Even with the defeat of the fifth floor boss, Karluin is still a monster-infested ruin filled with precarious traps, ancient dangers and just plain old fashioned half-collapsed architecture. Though dilapidated, the goblin settlement in the area is deeply rooted and will need a good deal of effort from intrepid Adventurers to clear out... But it'll all be worth it. Once reclaimed, the fortress of Karluin will be a second or third home for Adventurers making their way up the tower. It's not like they have much choice; the way up is right smack dab in the middle of the old fort, and leaving it to rot will just make getting to the sixth floor that much more difficult.

The long task begins with exterminating monsters still lurking in the castle-town surrounding Karluin's mysterious central keep. Only then can the walls be secured and progress can begin on securing the fortress' heart.

Duelist League: Xander vs Uta Uta Finished 1613669400 First of all, let us set things straight: he's not her dad, and she's not his daughter. Despite him taking this weak defenseless thing under his wing, her complaining about the smell and suggesting deodorant, him teaching her to fight and enduring the harsh reality of this world with all its mortal dangers, first among them the lack of deodorant, and her getting toughened up, going from being a squishy newbie likely to be killed by the first bottom-level monster she encountered to being a squishy newbie who can contribute to boss fights yet actively seeks and pokes the bottom-level monsters she's just as likely to be killed by.

It's a complicated relationship, okay?

Come witness this majestic spectacle of nature, where gratitude and mutual caring is exchanged in the form of unleashing wanton violence on each other!

Because that's the shounen way.

WARNING: due to the participants' unpredictable Real Life schedule, the scene might be move about, even (and especially!) at the last minute.

One such group finds out the hard way, that even with experience on their side. You can't ever let your guard down around goblins.

Family Lineage Helena Lethe Finished 1613325600 Gabriella Drake sits on a stump just outside of the city. Her gaze looking at an arrow in her hand. Her thumb gently runs over the sharp tip. "Do you think," She asks the merchant in front of her. "One shot could kill a vampire?"

"I would imagine one good shot to the head could fail any beast, my lady." The Merchant replies. "Though are you sure you want to go after an undead alone? You don't look--"

Gabriella eyes dart up quickly at the Merchant, "I am the grand-daughter of a noble knight. Heir to a line of heroes and monster slayers. This war is taking a toll on these people. On this nation. I will not continue to sit idly by and do NOTHING." She stands up quickly to her feet. "I also did not ask for your opinion, good sir. Now give me your finest armor, bow, and arrows."

Her eyes narrow dangerously, "I have a monster to slay who dares to disgrace the Drake family line."

The merchant gathers the items, but raises a brow, "What did you say your name was, my dear lady?"

Yet the merchant never got the woman's name, all her could do was watch as she left. At first he didn't want to say anything, after all, it was not his business if a woman went on a suicide mission and yet--

                                 -----------                                  

    A job gets posted on the Hunter boards and to any job listing locations with a sketch that looks a bit like Gabriella's face on them:

To all parties interested, an unknown woman has gone off into the wilds of the Ninetails Dominion on a possible suicide mission to hunt down some vampire and help try to 'end' the war.

While payment may not be provided. This is a request of any brave souls, with kindness in their hearts to stop this mad woman before she gets herself killed; If she has not already. She was last seen heading west from the city, toward the forest, and the place where the mist always walks.

(( Boss Fight with an NPC assist. The outcome of this side story is dependant on you, the adventurers. You also may feel free to try and track her down /before/ this scene to also alter outcomes. Description will adjust/be added to should this be the case. ))

The room seems to be the source of the previous infestation, but now shows a strange glowing arcane circle that refuses to allow them to pass. The Landers have reached out to the Hunter's Guild, seeking capable Adventurers to find out what lies beyond this strange device.

What is certain, is that the spiders in the mines now known as Spinner's End, had to have come from somewhere. Danger lies on the unknown path ahead. Are you brave enough to face it?

Assisting people who are unable to defend themselves as they trudge slowly through dangerous environments on a preset path.

The merchant guilds and the People of the Land will pay handsomely to see this convoy deliver its goods - and its people - to the destination, and your group is needing to head that way anyway for your own reasons, so it's time to hitch up and hit the road. It can't be all that bad of a quest, right? Two days of travel will fly right on by.

Though dilapidated, the goblin settlement in the area is deeply rooted and will need a good deal of effort from intrepid Adventurers to clear out... But it'll all be worth it. Once reclaimed, the fortress of Karluin will be a second or third home for Adventurers making their way up the tower. It's not like they have much choice; the way up is right smack dab in the middle of the old fort, and leaving it to rot will just make getting to the sixth floor that much more difficult.

The long task begins with exterminating monsters still lurking in the castle-town surrounding Karluin's mysterious central keep. Only then can the walls be secured and progress can begin on securing the fortress' heart.

The merchant guilds and the People of the Land will pay handsomely to see this convoy deliver its goods - and its people - to the destination, and your group is needing to head that way anyway for your own reasons, so it's time to hitch up and hit the road. It can't be all that bad of a quest, right? Two days of travel will fly right on by.

The room seems to be the source of the previous infestation, but now shows a strange glowing arcane circle that refuses to allow them to pass. The Landers have reached out to the Hunter's Guild, seeking capable Adventurers to find out what lies beyond this strange device.

What is certain, is that the spiders in the mines now known as Spinner's End, had to have come from somewhere. Danger lies on the unknown path ahead. Are you brave enough to face it?

They no longer strike only at night, meaning that the forests are now a dangerous place, even during the daylight hours. With a number of both Lander and Adventurer deaths attributed to the gnolls, the Hunters Guild has put out a call to thin out their numbers, in the hopes it might return gnoll activity back to normal levels.

After a recent plunder of intoxicating beverages, the pirates are in high spirits. It is the perfect time for Adventurers to sneak onboard and investigate the source of the pirate threat. The Hunter's Guild is offering a reward for such intel.

Monster Handlers will be able to race their own mounts, or rent one. If you are not a Monster Handler, don't worry. You get to team up with an NPC Monster Handler, who will focus on controlling your ride while you take care of the challenges of the race!

There are also rumors that one of the participants is going to pull a stunt that has been weeks in preparation, something which, if successful, could be a game-changer...

OOC: Classic racing scene. Open to anyone. Adventurers without the 'Handle Monster' skill will temp-NPC an Adventurer who does (your PC Adventurer bet on them, will ride along and take care of the challenges, but the monster itself will be under the control of the NPC). If your Adventurer is a Monster Handler but doesn't have a mount, you will be given a loaner (sorry, you don't get to keep it after the scene). The scene doubles as a personal-mini-plot-conclusion scene for Uta; she will be in the race, but to avoid a conflict of interests, Uta's presence will not affect the final OOC ranking. Rewards will be given out as if Uta wasn't there at all.

Head of the Devil Prophylaxis Finished 1623886200 After several weeks of successful operation, the Aincrad Express has become a vital source of trade and transportation between the tower's floors. Unfortunately, not all of the tower's denizens are as pleased with the iron horse's non-stop passage.

The Seventh Floor is home to all manner of terrible beasts, and while some had emerged to obstruct the initial construction of the railway through the mountains, up until now the Scale Emblem has been able to deal with all comers. But with news of unusual seismic activity in the area and the appearance of a terrifying beast burrowing out of the mountainside, the alliance's elites have been called in to deal with the issue.

But will it be as simple as a routine monster extermination, or is this just the harbinger to the awakening of greater threats from beneath the earth?

Duty Session 319: For Whom the Bell Gnolls Cyrus Finished 1624146722 Recently, there has been a shift in the behavior of the gnolls who dwell within the forests close to the newbie leveling areas. They had always been a threat, but it seems as if they have started to change their tactics as a result of Adventurer activity in the area. They no longer strike only at night, meaning that the forests are now a dangerous place, even during the daylight hours. With a number of both Lander and Adventurer deaths attributed to the gnolls, the Hunters Guild has put out a call to thin out their numbers, in the hopes it might return gnoll activity back to normal levels.

Carnival Nights Helena Lethe Finished 1624640400 The Carnival of the Night is back again, but this time it seems they are not putting up as large of a festive. No, it seems there are only a few. Some music, some food, and one lone tent.

The tent belong to a woman who can see your possible future by the roll of the dice. Do you care to have your fortune told? Or would you rather see if you can learn more about what this devious crew may be up too?

Come and make your path with the Carnival of the Nighht!

    OOC NOTE:
Going to try to wrap this up before the bigger scene in the evening, so no one feels like they have to make a choice. I also plan to keep this more on the social low-key, while combat 'could' happen, that is not my goal.
f
I'd like to ease back into things and see about getting players involved who haven't had a chance yet to fully interact with anything regarding Helena & The Forgotten.

Hope to see you all there!
