✧ DAY 11 - Solace Festival - 6pm ✧
Interacting with: @Jangel13
Dubstepp reads the guild log multiple times. He did not realize the death of Karma would create this much disagreement or chaos in the guild. It looked like everyone had their own idea of coping or solving the problem. He gazed at the fireworks above him. They were beautiful, to say the least. It seemed that firework gazing with Chari would have to wait. He sent a message to Shiba: “I’m willing to help you find, Valentine. Let’s work together. Where are you right now?”
Shibata had been asking around looking for people that may have seen the monster, Valentine. He just finished asking someone when he heard his message. He opened it and saw what dub wanted to do. He wrote back saying "At the west edge of the city where he was last spotted."
Dubstepp noticed a notification in his inbox. Opening it through realizing before who the sender was. He was glad to see that Shibata was compliant and answered him back. Dubstepp chose not to waste his words and headed straight to the area. The musician took some time trying to pick out the crew member several individuals. He thought back to the faces of guild members back from the first dungeon and also looked for the gamer tag. “How’s it going?” Dubstepp asked Shiba, finally discovering his location.
Shiba waited to know that from the guild chat that he wasn't allowed to leave the city or go on a chase for Valentine. Still, he couldn't stand someone just getting away with murder like this. He turned around as he saw him come over and ask how it's going. He signed a bit and said "I'm alright but I haven't found any clues to where he went. All I know is that he left the city through this gate. It infuriates me that someone got away with murdering one of our family.”
“I feel you,” Dubstepp lied. Joining the guild was a major decision. Stepping into a group of people, he wasn’t influenced by Karma’s murder by the likes of vengeance or sorrow. He instead was worried about becoming a target and dying early. “Well, you want to look outside the gate then?”
He looked over at him as he asked if they could look outside the walls and he said "I would but the Rey decided that I wasn't allowed to look for him outside the city. Unless you feel like doing it despite what he said.”
Dubstepp scratched his chin. He drew a smug smile. “I ain’t ever been in a guild before, but is there a way he could actually find out?” He picked up his shoulders and dropped them down. “We could step outside and look around the perimeters. I’m willing not to say anything.” Dubstepp crosses his arms.
Shiba couldn't help but smirk at his response. He then nodded and said "I don't think he will mind if we just check the area for secret tunnels or things like that" he said making an excuse as he moved forward and got past the gate looking around to find any kind of trail.
Dubstepp clapped his hands. “Alright, though give me a second.” Using his trainer magic, he summoned his mighty pet Totoro. The giant gorilla-rabbit pounded its chest and gave out a small roar. “I wanted to say some boundaries. I’m all for engaging battle with whomever we find. Though if I see any difficulties or that we have no chance of victory, then I ask that we retreat and fight another day.” Dubstepp followed behind while asking Totoro to stay ten steps back.
He looked around and turned to him when he summoned his pet the hulk rabbit. He was always off-putting to him since he always thought rabbits were just cute. When he decided them running if the fight seemed to difficult he said "don't worry I don't plan on starting a fight I can't finish. An assassin only attacks when he can kill his target" he said letting him know he was only planning to find them. Maybe get a clear picture of the killer so they could be found later.
Dubstepp followed Shiba’s lead. He drew a smirk when realizing that the assassin player was playing with a leveled head...sort of. Just for safety measures, he withdrew his darts. There was no telling what might appear. “What are the chances we actually see him?” Dubstepp questioned.
Shiba kept searching nearby looking for traces. When he asked what their chances were he sighed and said "little too none. If nothing else though searching for him will ease my anger if only by a little" he said his hand on his hand ready to grab his katana and fight at a moment's notice.
Dubstepp adjusted his neck, he listened to Shiba’s words. It probably became a good thing that he tagged along. Most likely, Shiba was needing to vent. “Frankly, I would be content if we found him. I feel as though this puts a target on us, and I would be more relieved if we managed to finish him off.” Looking behind, he did see his giant rabbit follow ten paces. “I wish Reylan gave us more information. We really don’t know what we are dealing with.” The trainer complained. Rubbing the back of his neck, he opened up the message again. “All we have to go by is his name. Which kind to think of it, isn’t that a bit ballsy? I believe we only have his name because he is confident enough that we won’t pursue him or we’ll lose.”
He looked at him as he started to talk about Valentine and how he or she was pretty ballsy by giving them a name. Shiba grits his teeth before saying "he is probably an assassin class, even if karma was attacked by a player much stronger it would take an assassin to kill before they could type help in a message. I swear to God if I catch him I'll slit his fucking throat!" Shiba growled kicking a nearby tree in anger at how cocky this bastard was.
Dubstepp placed his hands in his pocket. He watched the floor and then looked at the sky as Shiba’s anger was making him slightly uncomfortable. The trainer could hear chips of the tree’s bark break from the impact. Totoro put both of his ears up in reaction; the animal seemed more confused than concerned. “I’m guessing you were pretty close to Karma, huh?” Dubstepp asked, giving Shiba eye contact back.
He gave a loud sigh as he calmed down after he kicked the tree. He turned to him when he asked if he and karma were close. He couldn't help but laugh a bit "the funny thing, we weren't close at all. I rarely spoke to him. I'm not pissed off because a friend got killed, I'm angry because he got away with it. Once he figured out how to pull it off he will do it again, and again, and again. I want to kill him before he becomes he becomes a bigger monster down the line" he admitted not angry at the murder itself. He was angry because he knew that if he wasn't stopped more and more people would share karma fate. It only takes one kill for someone to get the taste for it.
Dubstepp nodded, he examined the distance ahead of him to make sure there was nothing significant before speaking again. “It’s good to feel that way. Your moral compass is really healthy. Though I would suggest that you watch that anger.” Dubstepp gritted his teeth. “Valentine killed Karma. The only reason we know of his name is that Reylan might have met him or the murderer left a note. This hints at his personality that he’s the type to get under your skin. Things are going to be said. You should be cautious of that.” Dubstepp bit his thumb as he spoke. Totoro approaches Shiba and began punching the trunk of the nearby tree, breaking a few pieces of bark. “Jeez, I hope he doesn’t do that for every tree along the way.”
He smirked a bit as he said that it was healthy for him to have this kind of moral compass. Then he nodded as he explained that this was the kind of guy that will get under his skin if he lets them. Shiba nodded and said "I'm no fool, I'm just angry now because I can't do anything. I won't waste my chance if I ever get one." He promised, watching as the bunny punched his tree and he couldn't help but smile. Shiba then said "good bunny." He said as he took a deep breath to calm down as Shiva then started to go off the road and look around the walls themselves.
“You think we’ll actually be successful?” Dubstepp then asked. “I would become surprised if we actually managed to find Valentine and his thugs.” The tamer cupped his hands around his eyes. “I seem some boars up ahead. Nothing too menacing for us at our current level.” Digging into his inventory, he started balancing a dart on his finger.
Shiba shrugged at his question and said "who knows I don't think we will find them but we can always hope" he said not giving up hope on finding the killer. When he mentioned boars ahead he looked over and said "let's clean this up fast and get back to searching"
Dubstepp snapped his fingers. “Go get ‘em, Totoro.” The rabbit creature heard his commander and rushed towards the party of low-level critters. With ease, it managed to destroy several of them. “Leave some for Shiba. We got to split the experience points and rewards.” Dubstepp bellowed. The musician crossed his arms; it did not seem likely that the two would just come across their wanted murderer. Things couldn’t go so smoothly for them.
Dubstepp and Shiba had no luck finding Valentine or his group of thugs. They only managed to gain a bit of Renn and even less experience.
✧ DAY 12 - Solace Festival - 6pm ✧
Dubstepp whistled, he witnessed Dirk managed to negate the boars’ damage throughout his aggro effect. The musician remained impressed after the fact. Totoro adopted the same role of tank, but even then, he probably couldn’t take on that much damage. The tank class was surprisingly a huge absorber of damage.
The trainer noticed Tote’s health drop by 100 hit points. He cocked an eyebrow and gritted his teeth. ”How is the boar going to do 100 damage?” He questioned unsure of why the boar was so powerful. Dubstepp commanded Totoro to keep striking the boar. Dubstepp chose to layer the damage with a hit of his own to quicken the destruction of the enemy. The faster the enemy dies, the less health Totoro is going to take. Using his inventory, he threw two darts at the boar.
Dubstepp had his eyes move around in his noggin as he tried keeping up with everyone’s movement. He widened them when he saw Alisea get knocked down with a lot of force. “Ouch,” he muttered. “Glad that wasn’t me.”
During the second rotation of attacks, Dubstepp threw two darts at Boar #3. Totoro attacked the boar again twice.
Dubstepp used two darts.
Dubstepp increased his relationship with Shiba.
