You take a few steps forward, while Ingret crouches even lower to the ground, already being fairly low for her usual height.

The group has six people - four men and two women. One of the men step forward.

Man: "We are wondering what these strangers want with us. Why have you come here?"

He doesn't seem to happy to see you, and the others don't look too happy either.

"We're, looking for help. From someone who knows a lot about how spirits work.
Nobody in Silo or Raena knew how to help, but they did say someone be able to here."

"Priestess Dion in Raena. She showed us Maazo on the map, after we delivered some supplies from Silo to Raena.
She said some people here were involved in spirit experiments, and might be able to help. We have someone with a... broken spirit-body connection."

Man: "Priestess Dion sent you? And spirit experiments...

We have some people yes, that might know what you need.

First, though - what is that beast with you? We saw it flying around over the ocean. We have heard of witches that look like it."

"She is a witch, yes.
Her name is Ingret, and she's friendly, intelligent, and can talk. She was raised by Bezel here."

The man doesn't seem too convinced, until one of the women says something to him that you can't hear.

His expression relaxes slightly.

Man: "We will take one of you to our village."

Bezel: "One of us could go, or we could decline. Priestess Dion must've been convinced that they could help us if she sent us all the way over here."

"I think it's our last salient lead, and like you said, Priestess Dion knows that they have some experience with it.
Besides Aldente, they might actually be able to provide some info for, y'know, work. It would be good to get some actual results out of this trip in that aspect."

Bezel: "Mm.

So, who's going."

"Logical choice is you, I think. You know the magic better, you can run if things get dicey for whatever reason, or pop corruption to signal Ingret if really dicey.

It certainly sounds interesting, but if only one can go..."

Bezel: "Alright. Stay inside Ingret while I'm gone. Ingret, stay in the clearing, too, wait for me. It'll be safer since you can see everything around you. Hopefully I won't take too long."

You nod, and Bezel takes a step towards the others.

Bezel: "I'll go. My friends will wait in the clearing to the east."

Man: "Very well. Come."

She follows the others as they lead her away. After watching her and the others until they disappear from sight, you walk with Ingret back towards the ruined East Maazo.


~


The camera mounted on the ceiling swivels, scanning the table - decorated cardboard tiles forming the floors and walls of a dungeon, with numerous cards all over the place depicting warriors, mages, and beasts.

The PA system blares to life, sounding tense.


Ingret: "Move Melanie 2 North 3 West, cast 12 Mana Heal on Ralph. Claire 1 South 2 East, 23 Mana Lightning Bolt on the Venom Toad 2. Bezel Megaflare Venom Toad 3."


You skim spreadsheets, roll die, record results.


"Ralph is healed 18 HP. Claire misses Lightning Bolt."


Ingret: "What?! Lightning Bolt has a +50% accuracy modifier!"


"Bezel lands Megaflare, inflicting 25 Burn damage. Venom Toad 3 dies!

Venom Toad 2 uses Toxic Spit on Claire. She takes 10 Burn damage, and her Poisoned debuff increases by 10 in Severity. Claire is KO'd!"



Ingret: "I'm sorry Claire... Move Ralph 2 South, Fire at -

Oh, Bezel is back. Hold on, eating her."



Standing up from your seat, you leave the game table and walk over to the office's entrance.

The sun in Ingret's core had set, and a starry night fills the artificial sky. The street lamps illuminate Bezel as she rides the bike towards you, hopping off after she's within a few yards to walk the rest of the way.

Bezel: "Did I miss any excitement?"

No beast sightings reported by Ingret - just lots of relaxing and games between the two of you.

"Well you just Megaflare'd a venom toad, but Claire got knocked out by another after a critical miss. So, you're right on time I think.
Wards and Witches aside, nope, pretty mundane outside."

Bezel: "That's good to hear. Talked to some people who were involved in the UEN's magic and spirit experimentation. One of them wants to guide us to the old city, too, where the experiments took place."
