Recruiting Forde Briar
"Where? Who is he and where did he go?"
"My partner! My boy, my man!
" Forde cried. "Mordus Jain.
"I don't have the facility to tell you what I would have done for that man...
" He lamented. "...and what I would do to him now!
" The tone was suddenly angry.
" Haley piped in.
"Because he stole half my damn map!
" Forde impatiently answered. "The map, girls. The map that tells me where it is. Heeheeheehee.
" Whatever 'it' was, it made the boy giddy.
"Where what is?
"I ain't telling you that. I ain't, heh. Don't make me tell, girls.
" Forde refused to reveal, hiding behind the gravestone. "Hehehe! It's mine! It's mine, all mine! Hehehehe.
The Siren rolled her eyes. "Okay, sure. Now like what the large fella asked, where's this 'Mordus' guy?
"He's at Coldstep Pass. Escorted by some knights, caught him for exhuming.
" Forde answered seriously and honestly. "Some people, they feel differently. Not Mordus. He and me... are the same. The self same.
Haley sighed. "Then stop hiding and let's get Mordus. And maybe you'll help us.
Forde, surprisingly, was agreed to the offer. "Alright, girls.
" He stood up from behind the gravestone. "Let's go.
The small party was heading towards Coldstep Pass. The road began to incline and the very air that was inhaled grew cold. The snow-capped mountains were close and the winds that blew chilled even scales and feathers.
"You said you needed me, girls. What for?
" Forde asked from atop his horse. And by 'horse', it was really a sickly mule with legs as thin as sticks. "And how did you come to know me? I worked real hard hiding myself from the world.
Herbal Medicine 2
(MOR), @Stern Algorithm
"What ingredients do you use to make this 'Huwana'? Why did the Alchemist's Guild ban it? As the authority on medicinal safety, they must have had good reasons. How will we know that your anesthetic works unless pain is inflicted upon us?"
"Those are all very good questions, miss.
" Darren replied. "But before I answer, let me warn you first.
" The fragrance finally reached the monster girls' noses. The aroma was nice and soothing as was advertised and began to relax the nerves. "There may be strange entities abound but don't pay them much attention. Now then, to answer your questions--
It was then that Morgan
would hear Darren's voice become incoherent grumbling. Their surroundings distorted and warped, becoming too overwhelming for the eyes forcing them to close. Meanwhile, Vivian
was also affected but not as much, having taken protective measures. Even to her, Darren's words were murmurs but the room was still intact and she had control. Then Morgan
fell heavily on the Liliraune and Vivian
lost her grasp on the petal.
and the Altissima sisters
then woke up in a grassy clearing surrounded by thick, impenetrable fog. As they regained their senses, the fog would recede a bit before a whistling sound was heard coming closer and closer. The monster girls would narrowly dodge a strange-looking, red-feathered bird
that was flying at them at a quick speed. The bird lands on the grass and exploded into a flurry of red feathers.
The fog receded more and revealed a quite elevated area with three huge slingshots sitting atop it. Around them were more strange birds of varying colors
but one thing was common, they all glared at the monster girls angrily. Three red birds mounted the slingshots and their fellow birds prepared the avian shots.The girls must defend themselves from these angry birds!
Liberation At Any Price
With the decision firmly made and in their disguises, Ozzy
made for Sonarra and into the dangerous realms of Varjan territory.
Surprisingly, the trip to Sonarra was without incident but the duo could feel the air slowly darken the closer they got to Varjan lands. The sun itself, though bright back at the Guild, appeared to dim the more Ozzy
went further south. After a couple of hours trudging through the desolate landscape, the town of Sonarra was in sight.
With just one glance, one could tell that the town was poor and probably dying. The buildings were out of repair and look to be crumbling, ready to fall down at any moment. Some structures and houses were simply ruins and the smell of smoke and burning wreck was in the air.
Right at the town entrance, the duo could see a group of men who took notice of them and began to approach. The first one to meet you was a man who appeared Varjan-like. His helmet concealed the upper half of his head, he wore little armor beside some pieces on his shoulder and arms as well as animal hides and he has an axe slung behind his back
. He was no doubt a warrior, although whether he was aligned to Varjo or to Sonarra was unknown.
"What do you want, you two? What are you doing here?
" The warrior asked you as he was flanked by two other warriors. "Have you heard? There's a war goin' on.
" His tone was not welcoming, threatening even.
