Village of Vile Liege

Postby polyedit2000 » Fri Sep 08, 2017 2:52 pm

RP starts a few posts further down.

---

Greetings, heroes. You want to know what happened? Let me tell you. You were summoned to another world by a Divine Being. Your were tasked with defeating the Dark Lord, ruler of the world, terror of the living. And only by defeating the Dark Lord could you go home. A fair bargain, considering who you are.

Hm...what class did you choose again?

OOC:

the design i wanted to go with is inspired from this one, and kind of similar due to the fantasy setting:

https://i.pinimg.com/736x/03/da/3f/03da3f240cbc9ffa9fc3e1d841d69cb6--fate-stay-night-fate-zero.jpg

--------------------------------------
IC:
A young woman stepped forward, her lance, made out of shiny onyx tightly in her grip. She was quite busty and while also tanned, she seemed to have a skintight body nylon on to ad to the recognition. Armor protected her shoulders and her modest bits , while she had ankle cuffs on as well, yet she still walked around pretty much barefoot. She looked like she came from a desert area to visit this place.

,,My Name is Nitcoris, I'm a member of proud clans that rule in the desert. My class is the lancer , i hope this is to your liking.''

((OOC: wasn't sure if i could describe this, but this is my outfit except for the facemask, only has a hood. front http://4skyrim.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/50567575.jpg, back http://4skyrim.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/09492292.jpg, boots http://4skyrim.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/88276845.jpg)


the next girl, stood to the side of Nitcoris, looking around the room with interest. she was rather pale and a head or two shorter then Nitcoris, her hood was down, showing off her striking amethysts eyes and letting her black hair hang freely behind her. it was done up in a ponytail, reaching her upper back as it framed her hourglass figure, her outfit hugging her heart shaped butt and perky breasts. her outfit was rather relieving and practically glowed green in the dark, her heels clicked against the floor and yet she was a ghost until she reviled herself, deadly silent and practically invisible she had a knife strapped to her lower back and a katana above it.

Yes, yes...what you are isn't that important. What you did, though, was that you immediately set off on your adventure. You plowed through the forest of goblins, clear off the cliffs of the griffin, and demolished the cave of spiders. Oh, and you died.

Yet...you woke up in your coffin, in one piece no less. But no matter how hard you banged and knocked, you couldn't get out. Even worse, you might have died when you faced the spider and they could have bound you in a cocoon, or you died early to the goblins, and they tied you up tight. Or perhaps it was some other peril, but nevertheless, you were stuck in that coffin, and if you were unlucky, you were further bound when you died. Or perhaps it's more accurate to say that you didn't die but you were bound so much that you were legally dead.

Was that your last day? Your eternal damnation? Did you hope someone would save you when you couldn't save them?

Hannah flinched, blushing slightly as she reminisced on how she passed, not noticing that the room and Nitcoris, disappeared around her, being replaced a sturdy, padded coffin. one she stole from a vampire in the past, as her arms where pulled under her breasts as her legs where pulled together, her jaw being forced open. it was a rather stupid death, a drunken dare gone wrong. near the edge of the forest of goblins, was an old abandon asylum that supposedly was being used by the goblins to hold hostages and train slaves and since she was known for her stealth, she was dared to get caught by the goblins and break out of the asylum. Well one failed attempt later, Hannah was bound tightly in a heavy duty straitjacket left behind in the asylum, a tight hobble skirt that barely let her move her legs a centimeter, a magic collar, and a rather large ball gall, being dragged to the cave of spiders, what she didn't know during her escape was that the goblins where using a special collar that allowed them to track her where ever she went. as soon as she broke out of her cell she was easily tracked down.

the goblins left her right outside the cave tied to a wooden post, she was quickly taking by the spiders and cocooned tightly, showing off her every curve and leaving no wiggling room, hanging off the ceiling where the webbing holding her up soon broke, causing her to fall to her death.

There was another girl in, well... I'd like to think of it as "literally nowhere" like it was in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon. She was a blonde with a green sweater and pearly blue eyes. The blonde turned to the mysterious voice and said... "I'm Dawn, strange voice. I think I'd like to consider myself a Mage considering I'm an aura reader."

Upon hearing the second part of the script, Dawn said... "Um, who wrote that? Last I've checked, I was simply meditating in the middle of a forest. I wouldn't go out of my way to screw with some hooligans, especially if it meant all of that will happen to me."

Of course, Pawn, everyone should follow your example. Except most don't. Anyway...

Must have been a dreadful experience. But as luck would have it, the coffin opened up, and you were released from your bindings. Freedom and life, so overwhelming it was that you didn't realize your pocket became lighter. For you see, Heroes and Adventurers are blessed. Rather than true death, a "coffin" preserves their body. But what make a Hero like you different from an Adventurer is an attraction, for you can bring the coffins of your friends without carrying them, and the death of your whole party would bring you to the nearest church. However, resurrection is a rare and costly art I'm afraid, so if you had died poor...that's what happens to some Adventurers.

But eventually, your journey brings you to your conclusion. You and the Dark Lord, heroes versus monster, all to bring light back to its rightful place. He set the stage, the ruins of a town only memory remembers. Oh, how did you struggle in the fight to end it all?


For a horned cloaked figure sits before you on a throne of skulls, waiting for your next move.

"What in the..?" Dawn looked at the figure in the throne of skulls. Considering the scripted coffin deal and the skull throne (and pretty much everything that had transpired), Dawn could only draw one conclusion... "Hades?"

Hannah blinked as she nodded along, everyone has heard this, especially when they first become hero's, thought this was the strangest resurrection she's ever had. if this could be consider a resurrection. though upon hearing the question, she spun on her heel as she started up at the cloaked figure, even without seeing their face she know who it was "I fought stealthily, taking out their bases till they retreated, but not before they left me a parting gift" she growl out the last part, as she gripped the handle of her knife as the slightly glowing green parts of her armor pulsed with lightly brightly, as if emphasizing her point.

The Dark Lord waggled his finger. "Now, now, did you really think that's how the story goes, Banana? I clearly remember how our fight went, but I'll summarize it for you: I won, you died, but you revived here instead of the last town. And we have fought and fought and fought like this...but while we both start at our peaks, you are running out of gold to revive. Eventually, you will have no more gold, and that is when I will entrap you in the greatest ties and torture, when you will remain trap in nameless box, when no other Hero will be there to free you because they would have to succeed where you. Have. Failed. And I shall continue to rule this rule unopposed as I always have."

The Dark Lord sighed as he leaned back. "To be honest, I have too many coffins in my collection. And to be frank, I have no desire to really add to it. So why don't you just retire? Become NPCs? I'm pretty certain there's a batch of land asking for a new town. After all, you're not the first Heroes to try and defeat me, and you certainly won't be the last."

"Quite frankly," Dawn replied. "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting any new outcome." Dawn then turned to Hannah. "If I were you, Hannah, I wouldn't try anything THAT rash again."

Hannah looks over her shoulder, giving dawn a 'really?' look as she pinches the bridge of her nose in frustration, shaking her head, sighing as she calls over her shoulder "you aren't helping, besides your in this too for the same reasons or you wouldn't be here" she grumbles, before turning her attention to The dark Lord. "that isn't the full story ether and you know it! this is our third time meeting, second time here! sure you won our fight, but i was one of the hero's that pushed your invasion armies back" she yells out, rolling her eye in annoyance "and your the one who summoned me here on my previous death, before i died again to our fight. as to why I keep adventuring, ... well the cursed armor doesn't help, I think i got it from one of your bases, or you yourself" she mumbles in thought before continuing with a shrug "and there are some ups to it that being a npc doesn't have, and no its not the ability to resurrection, or all the usual answers" she finishes mumbling the last part under her breath

"Is that really your reason?" The Dark Lord chuckles. "There is one more thing to say: The power of the Hero, the reason why you get back up when struck down...it is solely for the sake of slaying me."

The Dark Lord turned to Dawn. "In fact, I'm surprised that Fawn here has resisted the geas until now."

"That power invokes a geas, an itch to fight me, a subtle nudge into your pride. Perhaps your actions have been your own to this point, but knowing the outcome to this battle and the power I wield to achieve it, can you truly say you wouldn't be frightened at this point?" He gazed into Hannah's star-shaped pupils. "Though through that geas, you would think I was lying. Once more, I urge you to reconsider and abandon your weapon. Live the rest of your life in peace, and I'll also see to it that your cursed armor is removed from your person. I take no pride in fighting those whose destiny was not by their own hands."

Hannah groans in aspiration, letting her arms fall to her sides as she face palmed "I swear it sounds like you want me to fight you- look I don't care, maybe in the past i did, but now I really don't. we've already done this dance before and I just want to go home, or anywhere else, wherever your gonna send me. just stop summoning me here in my dreams and when I die! giving the same damn speech" she groans as she gesture to the coffin like it was the way out "can I go? or do you actually want something from me? a job? your maid? a bitch?"

OOC: Sry small typo, the name was Nitocris

-----------------

IC:
Her vision blackened out for a bit before she once more realised in what predicament she found herself in, her arms were tightly crossed over her chest and she had been mummified with a golden mask tightly sealed onto her face while additional ties hold her body together as she was stuffed into the coffin. She groaned and moaned, cursing innerly as she thought about her unneeded defeat against the goblins. She did however not realised that she had already died before, getting shot by an arrow and then tightly cocooned by spiders. The goblins had taken her cocoon and brought it back with them in a coffin.

It took her a while to remember everything as it happened as she then suddenly found her limbs to be working once more. She stepped up in front of the skull throne and the dark lord, seeing two heroes beside her that seemed to be sharing her fate. She did not add much to the conversation and instead just watched them discuss.

Nitocris stepped in to proclaim her own answer as well while keeping a ready stance to be able to fight. ,,I cant talk for the two of them, but i do not give up because there are still people waiting for me, i can not quit while somebody is still in need of my help.''
She nodded to Hannahs Suggestion and added ,,I agree, if all of us are dead, you sure did not call us just to ask us to give up on ourselves.''

"No offense, Hades (either way, anything's better than "Dark Lord")," Dawn replied. "But is it your destiny to win or lose? So far, it seems to be the former seeing as how this..." Dawn looked at Hannah, then at the newly-awakened Nitocris ((Perhaps try "Clitoris" or "Nicotine" for her, Poly?)). "Seems to keep happening."

Because apparently that's a thing in this RP...

If the coffin was in dematerialized after the third part of the script.

Dawn materialized a coffin out of nowhere...

If it's still around.

Dawn walked to her coffin.

Dawn's coffin was a hexagonal box just large enough to fit Dawn's body. The lid had a green coffin-shaped design in the middle, surrounded by six inches of mahogany wood. In the center, there was a white flower... A daisy. There was a golden church cross above the daisy. The sides of the coffin were brown with mahogany with a thick green "block" or "line" running along the middle of the sides. "I have to admit, these coffins seem to fit us rather well..." Dawn opened her coffin, which had was lined with a green cushion where her back would rest if she were put in it. "This one has plenty of green, as if I were to become "one with mother nature" if I were buried in it." Dawn then closed the coffin. "You weren't the Lord of the Dead for nothing."

((OOC: I've noticed that the difference between a coffin and a casket is one's hexagonal while the other's rectangular.))

"Oh, I'm not asking you to stop fighting, Beefrunner. I'm simply asking you to take a few days off for the Hero's blessing and geas to leave you, which has the unfortunate effect of resetting your levels. If you do end up as Adventurers for another Hero, I'd try to be happy about your choice."

The Dark Lord clapped his hands. "Well, if you want to go home, I'll have my mages try to find a spell. Interdimensional travel is much harder than a false dimension, but if gods could do it, it shouldn't be that hard. And don't worry, I already have enough servants. Now, how about we talk this over tea and cake? You girls like that, right?"

"Though I'd like to clarify that just because I have skeletons serving in my army doesn't make me Lord of the Dead..."

Achievement Unlocked: What Geas?
((Intro is over. True RP starts here.))
===

Several Days Later...

Nitocris, Hannah and Dawn "retired" from their adventure; that was the official story. Unofficially, they found out that, once they stopped fighting the Dark Lord's forces, the divine power of the Heroes had left them, removing their levels and relabeling them as Villagers. And the Dark Lord was nice enough to remove Hannah's cursed armor (and recommend a few potions for a speedy recovery). The point was, they no longer had the geas, but it was not likely that any passing hero would think about taking a "villager" as an Adventurer.

As the Dark Lord promised, a town was built in the middle of Savag and they live there. If they remember correctly, Savag was a pretty large supercontinent, but there had only been two towns on opposite sides, making the journey very difficult. This new town would have been a godsend, as in most cases towns have a no-fighting spell enforced. And more surprising, the Dark Lord's forces didn't try to attack them. Sure a few beasts did when the girls were out and about, but those were the wild ones and it didn't take long for slimes and goblins to defend the new villagers and escort them back. For the most part, the Dark Lord didn't interfere with their new lives, and no heroes had come yet.

---

Though Duscre came by today. She was a succubus, though she wasn't a frontline fighter but the acting supervisor for the Dark Lord's forces in Savag. This includes the denizens of the dungeons here and, recently, the town. "How are you girls adjusting to NPC life? Not as bloody as a Hero's life, but not as costly either. Anyway, have you decided your roles yet? ...You have been informed, right?"

"Okay, I'll keep this short. The three categories of roles are Shop, Flavor, and Story. Story has you in a big or multiple role if needed, and Flavor puts you as an extra. You can keep the Villager role for the latter two, and you can apply as an Adventurer if you take part in the Story. As part of a Shop, you'll mainly be earning your wages selling goods, and we already have the basic Item, Weapon-Armor, and Inn set up. There's room in the main district for one or two more buildings, plus we're awaiting your recommendation for the second district. Is there anything else I should clarify?"

Dawn looked at Hannah, then at Nitocris.

"I think I have an idea. At least one of us is going to have to take shop and earn some dough. Trust me; we'll need it. As a person who has connections with Mother Nature, it is best that I go for a story role and potentially go out as an Adventurer. Hannah, since you're the swiftest out of us three, what would you like to go for?"

Hannah nodded in agreement with Duscre, she wasn't use to the peaceful life, just sitting around. so she has been hunting for the village, since she still kept her un-cursed armor for outings, her katana and knife where resting in a glass case in her room. she now wore a rather simple dress then reached her knees, a pair of marry Janes and some thigh sock. "well .. I have some connections that can help a shop and know how to bargain for anything. though to answer that ... I would need to know a bit more about the flavor roll though so I can try that, I'm not much of a heavy hitter though to fit the story" she hums in thought

"Ah, the Flavor role. Usually, the locals fill this task as they can stand for long hours saying one or two lines. Some of the retired heroes take this role as a form of 'trolling'." Duskre chuckles. "But other than that, you'll also have to involve yourself in village-wide events, such as hero celebrations, mass kidnappings, mass hypnotism and random single kidnappings. Any holiday celebration is optional, depending on the scale of said holiday. Thankfully, most villages only have one or no such events. Oh, and sometimes, you can give a sidequest or two, but not as big as a Story Quest."

"By the way, do you think we should change the Item Shop to the 'convenience' model?" Ah, Hannah remembered that a few shops on her journey were based on convenience stores. The first "convenience store" was opened up by a retired Summoned Hero, and it has caught on in a few towns. In addition to potions, various snacks and travelling goods lined the shelves, dry ice and magic costs were outpaced by the sales of cold drinks, and there was even a grill next to the counter for hot food. Unfortunately, fountain drinks and slushes weren't available because Synthon were such greedy bastards.

---

Duskre remembered something. "Oh, before you apply for the Adventurer role, keep in mind it's not like the Hero role you had before. A Hero is able to drag the coffins of other Adventurers and can bring them back to a Church...Oh, we should get that built right away, as it'll make the town much more useful. Anyway, you'll start off as a Level 1 Adventurer, any class of your choosing. You can level up on your own, but unfortunately, an Adventurer without a Hero will have an unmoving coffin. That means, you'll be stuck in there if you lose, and unless a Hero passes by or a monster decides to bring you close to town...Considering that Savag is a Level 30 zone at the minimum..."

In other words, risk leveling here or hope that a Hero would powerlevel her.

"Don't worry, you can retire from Adventuring if it is too much for you." Duskre stretched her wings. "Anyway, if you girls have no input about the town, I'll begin constructing the additional buildings and the second district. Definitely need to put in a Church for revival...This place has a lot of monsters so a Coliseum would be natural here, but a few Watchtowers can make this place feel secure...maybe a Prison with Watchtowers, but a Prison means a major overhaul of the town...or maybe an Underground Dungeon...I mean the standard, not the succubus kind...And we still have to come up with the name of this town..."

...It might be a good idea to throw in your suggestions now.

"I've no clue how long it'll take for a hero to come, so I'm gonna need to find a weak mob and come up with a good strategy. I think I'll be best off as a mage; it'll help me keep my distance, plus there's control over the elements." Dawn placed her hand on her chin. "At the same time, I won't be the best physically speaking..."

"Oh? Statistically speaking, as a Level 1, your best bet is to start back in Ventasia and work your way from there. Unfortunately, we can't bring you back to Portshore or fly you back there, especially with the new wave of Heroes that popped up." Duskre pulled out a report. "They've yet to reach Ventasia's port, but I'd like to get things ready before they come."

Ventasia. Oh yeah, Dawn recalled that the princess of that continent's kingdom had been kidnapped, and the king had closed the port and several passes to cut off the kidnappers...did the princess get kidnapped again?

"That reminds me: Don't tell people that this is a monster-sponsered town. Sure, there's a no-fighting spell to keep this town safe, but Heroes aren't the most rational-minded. Really, one of the Heroes hadn't gone back to town for a month after hearing that and he didn't pack Tents." Duskre shook her head. "Don't worry about him, he's working as a NPC for the Beserker class quest."

"hmmm, while convenience' model's can pull in a good haul, it can't really replace any large or main store, such as an armor or an actual potion shop, and they work better in traveling towns, town where heros would travel through or stop at." Hannah hums in thought as she taps her chin in thought "I would say, we could use a special item store, like a pawn shop or something, where people can sell their stuff and get things like area specific items, or quest items, and once we get people in then we can get the convenience' model. and maybe a trading outpost if we don't have one. that will get us on the map" Hannah nods, looking over at the other girl's if they wanted to recommend anything "hmm for the second district, it would depend on what kind of town we want this to be, a farming town, mining, slavery...." she trails off knowing she got her point across. "oh and before i forget, can a shop role be a flavor role as well? just wondering as I've seen a few of those when i was exploring"

"Looks like I'll have to take the risk." Dawn replied. "If Level 1 Rattatas can wipe out things way above its league with a combination of the Focus Sash, Endeavor, and Quick Attack, I'm sure I'll find a way to deal with even the weakest of mobs."

"That counts as 'optional participation'. In that case, you also need to prepare your contingencies if you're not able to run the shop yourself, especially in cases of mass kidnappings." Duskre pointed out. "Just closing your shop is okay if the event happens before the Hero comes, but I would recommend having an apprentice on hand."

"So selling not for gold...direct item trade, so that would be a Trade Post. Yes, that could work with the abundance of monster materials here. We could work out what materials need to be traded, but how do we validate that..." Duskre putted out another note. "Oh, I forgot to mention that the town's content does affect Flavor a bit, so if you're a mining town, some of the people will work as miners, a farming town would work on farms, and you get the picture. Anyway, I'll also suggest a Chocobo Farm on that list; Savag is big enough that a mount would be desired, plus we can put in some of those rarer plants or eggs in the Trade Post. That is, assuming you can take care of big birds. Alternatively, you can raise a Hunter's Guild just for the massive amount of monsters here."

Funny enough, the birds aren't actually Chocobos, but the name stuck with the abundance of Summoned Heroes.

---

"Remember: Savag's weakest is 28." Duskre shook her head. "Anyway, you probably should practice a bit. I'll have to check in with the rest of the villagers before I can finalize things. Oh, and as a reminder..."

Duskre hands Dawn a map of Savag. The numbers jotted on the map was a quick reference on levels, 28-32 on the West side and increasing to 48-50 on the East. This town's level was more around 38-41. Savag was a bit of a savannah, not much vegetation but not completely dry. It should be also noted that there seemed to be at least eight dungeons here that scaled with the surrounding area, the highest being the Tomb of the Jungle King (52) and the Beezel Hiveworks (52). Anyway, most of the wildlife in Savag were beasts and giant insects.

Maybe if Dawn headed to Portshore on the West, she could hitch a ride to Ventasia which had a lower level range (1-20).

Hannah nodded in understanding "okay, I'll keep that in mind, and Keep and eye out, I guess I'll set up pawn shop of sorts to sell special/rare items, or any items usual stores wont sell" she hum Looking over the small town, but expanding town "yeah, a trading post will get some items out but also allow us to bring in materials we don't or need. monster materials are always on high demand, Oh and do I have to pay for my shop's building?" she mumbles looking over to the few empty building and vacant lots in town before she turned to face Nitocris, and Duskre "I don't really mind what kind of content the town has, so you guys can decided"

"So this town... Which I'll call 'Vile Liege' for convenience sake, is in the middle of this land... And my best bet is to try to go west... Hmm... I don't have much gold on me; just enough for one revival and a health potion... Spells..." Dawn raised her hand and... Surrounded herself with a green bubble. "A defensive bubble? That'll be just enough to plow through, but it is ill-advised to Leeroy Jenkins it all... I think I can do this if I kept myself shielded around mobs..." Dawn went out of the village westward in an effort to reach Portshire.

There's long, tall grass everywhere here.., Dawn said as she slowly walked. My best here is to sense the aura of any creature that comes after me... If I manage to defeat one of these mobs somehow, I'll be in Level 7 for sure...

((I based my guess on the FFVI FAQs I've referenced.))

OOC: As im going to holidays in croatia for the next two weeks up until saturday 23rd where i return, i will try to refrain from getting together with another one of the players, as im not sure yet if i will be able to answer posts (internet is shit there, so thats why, hopefully i will be able to write without a problem :3)

-------------------------
IC:
Nitocris dook a deep breath and smiled, having quite a blast to get a break from her hero duty, even though it meaned that she would return to level 1 again. She took a shower and then started to put on a shirt and skirt, matching to her tanned skin. She did not quite forget about her hero life either however, as she kept on a golden anklet to remind herself of what brought her to this poit and glory. Of course it was a given that she still kept walking around barefooted, as it was pretty much a habit at this point.
She sighed, seeing her lance in the casket next to her armory and headed out to meet the others who were already talking to Duskre. She listened closely to the explanation of Duskre and then nodded, slightly blushing as she was embarassed about the idea she had in mind.
,,I...am quite good with animals, so having a cho...chocobo farm seemed quite enticing for me, and well i think the adventurers would have fun with that as well. However i think i will have to head for Ventasia later on as well as the mobs here are quite to strong for anything to sprout really. Or i set up as a blacksmith , but who would buy from a level 1 blacksmith.'' she nodded and added

"Don't worry, villagers don't have levels and thus aren't expected to gather goods for their own stores. We will be providing the majority of stock that should be appropriate for Savag's level range, which will be ported straight to your stockrooms. Of course, in regards to the Trade Post and Chocobo Farm, the available contents have to be staggered at first so that Heroes don't leave Savag too early. Officially, latter and higher-quality goods would become available through quests or hero progression, but..." Duskre sighed as she flipped through the notes. "Those kind of goods can't be teleported straight to town, and some of the monsters camp near their supply routes. The majority don't believe the Dark Lord made this town, while others are pretty stubborn against working with humans. While you can go out and negotiate with them, I'll admit that sending Heroes is more effective."

"And don't worry about costs. A percentage of the town's wealth will be collected for tribute every month, plus costs for renovation work." Duskre struck a few lines. "Don't worry, the Church, Trade Post and Chocobo Farm is on us, but any further additions or replacement will be out of your pocket. Well, get those buildings up very quick, so why don't you have another look around town?"

These were the building Hannah and Nitocris can check out:
Item Shop
Weapon/Armor Shop
Inn/Pub
Church
Trade Post
Chocobo Farm
Housing Area 1
Housing Area 2


---

Dawn felt a great aura beneath her feet. Then it rose up to its feet.

Oh yeah, Savag had a rare field encounter known as the Turtle King. It was a turtle the size of a mountain or a very large hill if she was lucky. With a minimum level of 100, it was very slow, but it had more health than five Dark Lords and a lot of strength in its limbs. Even the toughest of heroes have trouble downing one, and Dawn was no tough hero.

I'd suggest running.

Hannah hums, nodding in understanding "so could i just take a shop over, or would I have to pay to build one? I might need to check my funds if thats the case, unless you don't mind taking care of the Chocobo"s while I run the business side of things" she muses in thought, looking over at Nitocris with a questioningly before turning to the village's square, deciding to check over the other shops, looking through the window of the item

The Item Shop was pretty basic. A large open space in front with a counter in the back, and behind the counter were shelves and cabinets. The Item Shop wasn't much use to a villager, as the Pub usually handled most of the meals, though it had been stocked with Potions, Antidotes and a few other curatives at first.

"Once you take over a shop, it's pretty much up to you how you want to run the shop. It can't be that hard." Duskre explained.

Hannah nodding as she looked over the item shop once more. before looking through the windows into the weapon/armory shop, checking them out humming a small tune to herself as she explores the rest of the town, seeing if there was anything interesting in the first housing area's, "might just take the item shop" she hums to herself as she wonders around freely now that she was able to actually explore the town properly. memorizing it as she goes through the back allies and walkways.

The Weapon/Armor shop wasn't much different than the Item Shop except for the racks on the wall and the mannequins.

It seems that the housing area out of the way of both districts, though it wouldn't escape an exploring hero's attention. In fact, Hannah should be familiar with this housing area as her house and those of the two other retired Heroes live here.

Hannah chuckled to herself, shaking her head as she looked over the housing area, mumbling to herself "never gonna get use to how peaceful it is and not having random events or quest just popping up while exploring, even the annoying gather quests or the bondage ones" sighing to herself she looks up at the sky, having memorized most of the streets in the town, alleyways included. she continued to wonder eventually ending up at the pub, pushing her way in and up to the bar, it was rather busy and they didn't have any servers surprisingly

Hannah sees five girls busying themselves in the pub, whether that task is cooking or eating. These girls were once Adventurers, and like Hannah, they lost against the Dark Lord and took this offer. They were probably the only other people in this village.

"Hey, Han. So we heard about the chocobo farm." The silver-haired leader of the group commented. "Yeah, that'll be pretty useful. We just finished figuring out what we're going to do in the village:"

Skitts - Church
Aka Moro -Inn
Aleya - Chocobo Farm
Angela - Trade Post
Demona - Armor Shop


Aleya finished her food. "Say, Skitts, why is the sucky boss working on the town now? I mean, even if Ventasia's port is freed again, isn't Savag too hard for a Level 10?"

"True, but I'm guessing that the Savag Skip still hasn't been resolved." Skitts turned to Hannah. "What that is, you need to get lucky with a steal or drop from the Dododo-dodo Dodo called the Dream Egg, which changes your experience system from defeating enemies to hitting them, and then you have to play chicken with a Turtle King, one of the highest-level monsters in existence, and both can be found in Savag. That's pretty much a big boost in levels."

"The point is, we'll be getting some early if weak Heroes and their parties." Aka Moro concluded. "Even so, it's a day's trek from Portshore to here at the very least, so we'll have time to prepare. Do you think we're ready?"

"heya girls, how have you been' Hannah hums, waving to the group as she gives a shy smile to the silver-haired leader, a light blush tinting her checks. "hmm? oh, yeah we got that and a trading post up and plenty of room to build, we just gotta decide on what content we want" Hannah hums, grabbing herself a drink as she moves over to the group, nodding "that's good, I'm taking the item shop, a bit glad I don't got to fight for it" she continues with a light hearted tune, sipping from her drink as she listening to the conversation, nodding along "ah thanks, I've heard of it before, just never really knew what it was. I never did much in Savag when i was still adventuring" she contributes, stretching her arms above her head "as ready as we can be, beside we are still a new town, I would be surprised if we are even on the map yet"

BRRRRING!

Skitts fell out of her seat. "What the heck was that?"

Duskre appeared in front of them. "That was me, after finding out a Hero's on the way. You'll have about five minutes to get into position. I'm pretty certain you just stay in your shop for now, but if moving around helps you, go ahead. Well, I can't be seen, so see you later."

"See u-" Duskre already vanished. Skitts sighed. "Well, the Savag Skip's not easy, so I doubt many's gonna make it here. Hopefully it'll just be a tutorial for us. Let's get this over with."

The girls headed out of the pub, expect for Aka Moro who put away some of the dishes. She turned to Hannah. "Good luck."

Hannah Jumped slightly at the loud baring noise, looking over at Duskre with a curious expression, nodding in agreement to Skitts question "so that was a warning? dang, didn't think anyone would be here so soon" she hums, downing what was left of her drink before she stand up, helping skitts to back up "well, she said there was A hero coming, not hero's. so hopefully there is only one. though I'm sure we will be fine" she reasures the group, watching the group leave as she leaves a few dollars on the table. looking over her shoulder at Aka Moro, giving her softly closed eye smile "thanks you too, oh and if you ever need help don't hesitate to ask" she calls out before leaving the pub as she moves inside the item shop and behind the counter for now

Nitocris smiled happily at the offer ,, so a farm of my own that is partly funded by the dark lord? I cant say no to that. Finally i will be able to get in touch with the calmer parts of my soul." She pondered and then turned to see hannah leaving ,,Sure thing! I will visit you to buy some wares when im settled!" She giggled and then afterwards made her way to the chocobo farm.

Once Hannah was settled in her Item Shop, she checked over her inventory. And just in time as an orange-haired Hero entered the shop. He was pretty much alone.

Harold, the Basic Hero

He checked his inventory before heading to the counter. "Excuse me, miss? I'd like to get 5 Hi-Potions."

---

Nitocris found the Chocobo Farm. Chocobos were wild creatures at heart, so there were plenty of pens with open space. There was also a barn to store greens and to protect the bird whenever it rains. One part of the barn had an open window that served as a stall.

"Hey 'Cris! So I guess you got the Chocobo duty as well." Aleya waved at her as she petted a Chocobo. "Oh, I found a crate full of Whistles. I'm pretty sure they're used to call a big fella. Do you think we should give them to the Heroes, or reward it after a Quest?"

Hannah hummed a small tune as she did her inventory check from behind the counter, going over a list she had "lets see.... healing, check, mana, check, food..." she mumbled to herself as she went down the list. not really noticing the hero entering till she saw his boots out of the corner of her eyes, causing her to look up a friendly smile. nodding "of course, is that all?" she hums as she reaches under the counter, like a little animation, pulling them out of her inventory before setting them down in front of him "that will be 3 silver and 75 copper, please~"

Harold scratched his head. "Er, how much is that in Gold?"

Gold coins, or transmuted "gold", was the currency of Ventasia. Considering most Heroes start there, Gold became a world-wide currency. The second most-known currency was gold-silver-copper, as such metals have known values.

"course it gonna be cheaper, while transmute gold is popular, it doesn't hold much value outside of Ventasia, not many like fools gold" she mumbles to herself, slipping the coins into her inv

Nitocris felt the gras brush over her feet and the wind do so through her hair. It felt like a wonderful sense of freedom that she never had before. She closed her eyes for a moment and took a deep breath, enjoying the scenery. She was disrupted when she turned around to see Aleya. ,, Yes indeed, i couldnt help myself then to follow my passion." She answered while stepping closer, a light blush contouring her face. She reached out for the graceful animal, lightly brushing over his feathrrs before petting it as well.
It took a while for her to realise that she was questioned, but she answered fast nonetheless. ,, i think we should reward the m after a quest, helps us as well with the gaghering of materials"

...Now that Harold was gone, Hannah could do what she want. Take a walk, or check her stock closely, or decorate her store.

---

"I guess. Wonder what quest we should do..."

WARK!

Aleya almost stumbled when the Chocobo ran. The reason was from two Feral Fangs, wolf-like creatures, leapt into the farm. Aleya quickly ran at them, but forgetting she was a villager, one of the Feral Fangs simply tackled her.

Nitocris looked quite shocked, seeing the feral beast act iut of place seemed unreasonable to her. Yet she still saw it running away only to realise in shock that some feral fangs invaded the farm. She cursed her own powerlessness and screamed ,,HELP!! ARE THERE ANY HEROES AROUND?"
She however couldnt leave herself out, seeing that her friend Aleya got tackled by one of them.
,,Dont move! I will help" she said , turning around to pick up a few stones which she started throwing at the beast, hoping to grab its attention.

Hannah sighs, stretching her arms behind her as she slips into the back of the store "that was easy. well, lets see what we got back here" she hums to herself as she started to go through her stock. checking over everything carefully "health potions, mana potions, bandages, torches, food...." she mumbles as she goes through it all "...oh? whats this?"
