[You got a new roommate yesterday, a blind woman escorted in by one of the Lab guys. She holed up in her room pretty quick and you haven't seen her since. Until now, that is, where you've just come home to find her in your room, groping her way through your stuff.]


[You just told Aestuosa about something most people would consider highly unusual. Magic, aliens, time travel, whatever. As long as it's not about piloting a giant robot, that's not weird to her.]

Yeah, right! How gullible do you think I am?


[Oh, hey, look, it's Aestuosa over there, hanging out on a park bench. She pulls out a pack of cigarettes and lights one up before she starts... talking to herself?]

Ain't like it really matters to you, right?


[ALTERNATIVELY, if you're the sort of person who can see ghosts and other such otherworldly things, you get a pretty different view of the above situation. Aestuosa is sharing her bench with a deceased fellow, looks to be a young businessman of some sort. When she lights up, he admonishes her about the dangers of smoking.]

[You had something serious you wanted to talk to Dave about, but when you found him he was lost in thought watching MTV.]

Shouldn't there be music on MTV instead of just shitty reality TV. You'd think if they could keep one thing straight it would be to keep the thing from the name of the station in there.

[Event! Somehow the entire city is flooded, while it is highly distressing to most of the city, Hector is getting along swimmingly - literally. He's diving and surfacing freely, collecting anemoi that washed in from the sea]

come on, the water's fine, and there's only nurse sharks here.


[Hector had suddenly run off on his own during an expedition, and gotten himself into trouble, trouble you had to bail him out from. He glances to the side - muttering]

I wasn't in real danger, I mean, it's not like things really mattered...


[This guy is your room mate, he seems fairly rational - until today, where you walk in on him painting the room and doing a haphazard job of it!]

Oh hey! You're here! What do you think of this color? Soothing isn't it!

[Hector suddenly slung an arm over your shoulder, paintbrush hitting your shirt]

I just looked at the room and thought 'we need something less boring' so I figured a paintjob would do the trick.

Hello again, my fellow Sirocco inhabitants! I just remembered something of great personal significance. I am, in fact, a priestess! Indeed, a humble disciple of Bishamonten, the divine guardian and punisher of evildoers, shining brightest among the Seven Gods of Fortune.

Are there any among you who would consider undertaking buddhist training? The trials will put your body and spirit to the test, but if you perservere, you may be able to attain enlightenment...


You know,

[Among friends! That dignified manner from before sure disintegrated fast.]

Did you know that, you know,

[Also she seems to have gotten staggeringly fall-down drunk. Again.]

There's some kinda rule for priests, that you aren't supposed to drink alcohol?

[Loud, drunken laughter.]

I don't know any priestshstshs who follow THAT rule! What kinda life would that be?


[TRAINING MONTAGE TIME. The one training is Shou! She's practicing the art of spear combat, with somebody - possibly you! - as her teacher. Her form, her precision, the grace of her attacks...]

[They're all sloppy, at best. If you didn't know any better, you might think she'd never even held a spear before.]


[Shou throws the spear to the ground in a fit of frustration.]

Lousy pointed stick! Why was I holding you when I arrived if I don't have the first idea how to use you?!

*You managed to beat her to the loot, a neat looking artifact, and she does NOT look happy.*

Ch'. It would seem I was too late to beat you to it. I cannot let you keep that, however. Far too much is at stake.


*Yeah, you've had some nasty run-ins with her. Mostly her getting in the way, weird little schemes, and so on, and so on. But lately you've been dealing with someone a lot more dangerous than her. So you might be surprised when her face shows up on your videophone, and...*

Parley, if you will. I wish to form an alliance. Temporarily, of course.

I've seen one of these before! I remember it from one of my own expeditions, back home.

I think ancient civilizations used these as... some sort of food receptacle?


[Just remember something rough? Specifically, about somebody's death? Aradia seems pretty easy to confide in, in a friendly sort of way. She's a good listener, at least, but, well...]

[Need a hand with... basically anything? Manual labor? Someone to confide in? A test subject for violent explosion techniques? Robo-Aradia may be a good person to ask!]

What do you need?

Not that it matters. Everything I do here is pointless, so I don't see how this will change things.

I'm OK with it, though.

[Minding your own business? Good! You are now suddenly being visited out of nowhere by a troll wearing ridiculous magical girl butterfly pajamas.]


Is this a good time?


exciting news, everyone!
you know how there are a few trolls around here, and they can seem kind of
weird and lame?
well, i was remembering some of our old adventures together
and it seemed pretty cool and dramatic at the time, buuuuuuuut
in hindsight we were a bunch of weirdos pretty much from day one.

I have no idea how it works, so fix it for me.


[Should she really be drinking this early in the day? Or at all, at her age? Well, she clearly is.]

Ahh... There's nothing like relaxing after a long summer day of work with a nice cold drink, is there?

1. (Action)

Jack had regained a few of his memories through gathering anemoi, and had started making it a habit to tag along on expeditions going out to find these small but valuable gems, which he’d found fairly useful. He’d taken half to the lab to restore his memories, which is what allowed him to remember what that strange backpack he’d arrived with was really for, and he stashed the other half figuring he’d need funding for things. However, Jack had gotten impatient with this, and decided he wanted all the anemoi. After intentionally falling behind the others, Jack activated his heli-pack, hovering in the air, watching his teammates. Whenever he’d see one closing in on an anemoi, he thought, he’d swoop in and snatch it before they had a chance to.

Looking, Jack saw one of the others approaching one of the anemoi. As planned, Jack made a dive for it, grabbing the anemoi...and crashing as he miscalculated and crashed, tumbling into the ground.


He really needed more practice with his heli-pack, he thought. He’d gotten a bit unused to using it during the time when he didn’t even remember what it was. Looking at the person he’d been trying to snatch the anemoi from, Jack screeched, “You can’t have it, it’s mine!”

2. (Video)

[Jack is sitting in a chair, leaning forward, looking a bit frustrated as he begins whining.] How do people even get stuff around here without ebay? Whatever. [Then he shifts from whining to simply asking, sitting back further in his seat and relaxing a bit.] Does anyone know how to get useful stuff around here? Like...welding guns? Car motors? Bike chains?

3. (Action)

Jack had the monkey staff. Jack was using the monkey staff, giving him a monkey tail and monkey-like facial features, and he was screaming with distinct monkey-like screeching as he swung from street lamps, scrambled up drainage pipes, and generally ran amok. He wondered if there was a tire swing somewhere around here...

I've been told that usually recent arrivals announce the few details they remember about themselves over the network. It seems like a rather pointless tradition to uphold, seeing as we're all suffering from severe cases of retrograde amnesia. Then there's the anemoi--what exactly do they do, besides function as currency and an exchange for our memories? In fact, how did our memories disappear in the first place? I don't see any reason for the "gods" to knock us unconscious and somehow cause our amnesia.


[Do you happen to be a hero or a law enforcement officer of some sort? Then chances are, you might have dealt with crime scenes before. This one seems particularly gruesome, but what's different about it is the tall man running around the scene, sniffing things and examining the corpse and other items. And he's...definitely taking the time to insult some of your fellow officers/heroes, if they're there.

Care to step in before he messes anything up? You might want to listen to him, though. He looks rather triumphant.]


[So apparently, some time ago, Sherlock remembered that he was a consulting detective. He'd definitely advertised it over the network. Regardless, you're here now--maybe you're a police officer, or a civilian, who badly needs his help.

...unfortunately you're not going to get it without some level of contempt on his part.]

Tell me everything, from the beginning. Don't be boring.


[Oh, jeez. You must've been pretty unlucky to get stuck with Sherlock Holmes for a roommate. So far it's been somewhat safe to come in (but not to open the fridge, since apparently there is an abundance of human parts in it), what with a whirlwind of cases, but now they've all dwindled and he's got nothing to do. As you can tell, he's going out of his mind with boredom.

It's definitely why there's a smiley face peppered with bullet holes on the wall. As for the man himself, he's reclining in an armchair.]

My Lord. I've helped throw chaos into their ranks as you have commanded, but a few of them seem determined still to resist. Shall I send our forces to take them out, or shall I handle the situation personally?


*Gee, and you were making such good progress too. Guess who's just shown up. Hint: Bluh bluh.*

And here I thought you were a bunch of bumblers. I must admit you've done better than I expected! Unfortunately, my Lord is already on his way to his goal. Still, I suppose I have some time to play with you all.


*So the fight is over, she'd disappeared for a while with her master -- and then reappeared in the same state as everybody else. Needless to say, she hasn't exactly had a cordial welcome, and she's already pretty defensive when you come to visit her.*

Let me guess. More statements about how you're keeping an eye on me, how little you trust me, etc. etc.? You all must enjoy taunting the amnesiac villain. Make it quick. I was enjoying my brief time alone, and I would like to return to it, if you please.

You look like you're about to break someone in half. Why don't you take a minute to cool your head before you do something you will regret?


[That one sided fight you were winning just got interrupted by the weird old man from the tea house who just shot a blast of fire from his fist to separate you from your chosen prey. He looks barely recognizable as the same man.]

There's still time to settle this without fighting, you know. I'm not fond of violence, but if you keep insisting on making a fight of this then I will end it.

Honestly - were you trying to get us hurt running ahead of everyone like that? You weren't listening and had to run out like that! How can you be so... so... so selfish!

I have a hypothetical question for or other residents, particularly those who are human. Human psychology has become something of interest for me lately, so please be honest in your answer.

If you could have any wish granted, how much would you be willing to give in return?


[Either you or someone you know has formed a contract with Kyuubey! Maybe it's going great. Maybe it's an endless parade of horror. Who knows, really, I'll let you sort out the details.]

[Whatever the situation, there's somebody at your window.]

Are you free at the moment?


[Well, that could have gone better. You became a magical girl, found out it was a bit more than you had bargained for, and ultimately died under confusing circumstances.]

[Fortunately, you revived as a non-magical human, so the status quo is restored. A few days later, look who's getting in touch again?]

I'd like to offer my congratulations on a remarkably successful contract! I was expecting impressive results from someone of your potential, but you exceeded my expectations by far.

If you ever want to lend your power to the world again, I'd be more than willing to form a second contract.

Just please, help me!

Right, are you sure we can't talk this out? We're both civilized here, after all. Right?


[Hoo, boy. Something has definitely gone wahoonie-shaped here, otherwise you wouldn't be panicking. Perhaps it's got something to do with what looks like an angry mob forming outside, or maybe there's a pissed-off muscle-bound fellow looking for one of you, or, heck, you could even just be lost!
