I take objection to the idea that public health is "politics" just because some politicians don't listen to the experts.

I was only replying to the general sentiment of the last three posts before mine.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

The person you replied to specifically gave the example of "limiting the amount of people in a facility".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

This wasn't about "lock[ing] everyone in the country down".

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:57 AM)

All I'm saying is there are lockdown and anti-lockdown people and hashing it out in the shoutbox on a toy forum is dumb.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

You don't have to lock everyone in the country down to mitigate risks in one population.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Of course older people have it worse, but America is one of those countries where people ship their old people to homes far away from the action anyways.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

What ar you even trying to say, anyway? That we shouldn't complain about others increasing the danger more than necessary?

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

Frankly, there's a lot to say on this issue that can't be encompassed on the shoutbox and I really really don't want to have to deal with politics every single time I check the forums.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:54 AM)

To claim that this is about the people in the 20-40 range is also disingenuous.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:53 AM)

Essential workers and such are pretty fit on average which is an extra boon for them.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:51 AM)

It's not really a personal choice issue, it's a risk versus well, anything you want to do issue. Literally leaving the house results in potential exposure, mask or no. Overall, most of us who hang out here are 20-40, and our survival rate is comparable with some pretty out there statistics.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:39 AM)

Anybody who has to go out because of work or groceries or whatever can't just choose to avoid any potential disease-spreaders, for one thing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:38 AM)

Kind of disingenuous to frame this as just a personal choice issue.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:22 AM)

This whole "I can't handle people not me having the choice to not put on masks" thing's a bit much.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 March 2021 - 09:14 AM)

Hey, Florida is one of the most infected states, and we won't even shut down. We may use masks, but restaurants, clubs, you name it, those are still wide open. Also, what's limiting the amount of people in a facility again? :p

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 04:13 PM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

"Yes, this is the moth demon, Moscareina."

Nodding as the bug witch spoke, Kage saw the truth of what she said. Although he was still intrigued as to why she would even alert them to thus danger. Was it really as simple as not wanting any competition?

"Eneny of my enemy? Yee, i see what you mean. Unscrupulous mortals attempt to acheive ascension in a higher plane should not be allowed. Especially a Thief God.

Should we do this, i would like the answer to one question, Mossy. I want to know the root of your hatred. Not for us specifically, but the reason for your desire to take the workd away from people and warp it for yourself?"

At Destrons odd comment and clenched teeth, Kage turned his head to look at her.

"What do you mean by 'prevent a new goddess from rising', Lady Destron. To whom do you refer?"

"Had we lost instead of prevailing ... do you believe she would still be referred to as a demon?"  Destron's eyes soften as she looks from the woman to the man.  "Do not mistake my courtly demeanor for friendliness or flirtation Sir Kage, As a crowned Princess I am schooled in diplomacy as well as the blade."

Kages grin widened as he laughed, Destrons reference to their prior battle (and defeat) of the bug witch had indeed almost gone over his head. "You do indeed have a way with words, Lady Destron. Indeed, what a dark goddess Mossy might have been, had we not put a stop to it."

Looking down at Night Cap, he said.

"Not to worry my friend, had she the power to attack us, she would have done so. Mossy requires a host and a ritual to truly enter and affect this plane of reality. Both of which, we have prevented her from getting.

By the sound of it though, our demonic frenemy here is the lesser of evils today."

"Perhaps. However, let us not for a moment forget that a mutual enemy may only make for an alliance of convenience... should we fail, she will not weep for us... should we be victorious but if the battle to come weakens us -do not trust to good faith, she will set upon us - it is her nature." Destron again turns to the woman. "I wish to be wrong - but perhaps those impulses are but a remnant of Chur's memories playing at the back of my mind. She would wish better for you"

Nodding, Kage replied.

"This is very much a win-win situation for her. We win, one potential threat is dealt with. We lose, another threat is dealt with and the world suffers. You are right Lady, she would not miss us were we defeated. Whatever happens next, we must stay vigilant."

"I disagree with the assessment of not being a goddess. I wasn't trying to ascend--I was trying to cross over to your plane. Otherwise, the princess is quite right in that to ask me why I feel the way I do what I do is akin to me asking you why you breathe. It's in my nature. True, Tijuego has had an effect on me and loss has forced me to adapt but that's not important right now.

Your quarry is very much the muscular and hearty Viknadian. Not as fair skinned as the princess but of the north all the same. Boastful and cocky in a smug and self assured manner. In the event that you encounter Varian, I give you this as a sign that he should stay his hand and listen to a temporary truce."
Moscareina reached her hand into the coconut shell until it was all the way up her arm. She then pulled out a marble sized orb in a pale, speckled green. Her hand wholly dry despite her actions, she paused in confusion then looked at Beathra. "I believe you are the only one who I can give this to. For your sake, don't drop it."

Beathra raised his eyebrows with a enigmatic smile at her comment and received the orb, testing its weight in his hand and peering closely at it, before stowing the item away in his cloak. When his hand came out, it now held his long stemmed pipe.

 

As he filled it, he said, "A temporary truce, eh? Very curious wording, that."

 

Snapping his finger beside the bowl, it lit and he took a contemplative draw, continuing, "What are we meant to do with this man, once we find and forestall him? Clearly he's not meant to be killed, otherwise you would hardly be looking to us or offering a means to simply halt him. I presume you'll be watching, waiting for the task to be completed, so you may step in. I do wonder..." here he trailed off, leaving further contemplations for his own mind. "In any case, the sooner we can get started, the sooner we can have it done."

Voice low and cold, Kage snapped.

"So your nature is to be a hateful, manipulative witch, who will trick and deceive anyone she wants into helping rot the world into a decaying, festering mess?

Good to know."

With a deep breath, Kage controlled himself and moved back to the matter at hand.

"Hmm. So this 'Valerian' is to be stopped and delayed?"

"How amusing o knight. If you add in a 'Thou foul villain' or two you'll make me nostalgic. However, I believe you may have your wires crossed. You can kill your quarry for all I care, I just didn't think that was your style. 'Varian' is my champion, Varian Stalebutter, Champion Like No Other. I'd rather he work with you than get in the way.

And besides, I only deceive when it suits my needs."
During this conversation, Beathra felt that the orb was warm and slightly soft.

"Ah," Said Beathra, "My apologies... you had not mentioned a champion till now, so I assumed that was your quarry's name. We shall keep an eye open for them."

 

"If there is nothing else we ought to know, then I think it would be best for us to be on our way."  Here he began to turn, then stopped, "For the record," he added in a oddly earnest voice, "I believe you. I do not trust you. But, I believe you. And I think it would be in everyone's interest to see this task done."

 

Beathra turned and motioned to his compatriots, "Come Kage, Destron," he said with a smile, "Let's not keep the Goddess waiting. We have much to do and the day is waning. Unpleasant tasks are only less enjoyable the longer you put them off."

"Varian Stalebutter. Ah yes, your competitor from our contest for Howards food.

My mistake.

I'm not sure i'd call him a 'Champion Like No Other', unless you count serving you. Still, it will be interesting to meet again. And on the same side this time too.

'sigh'

No, death is not my first or second option. Though it does tend to be yours. At least, when you can;t charm your way into someones good graces. Regardless, we should probably begin our search."

Kage gave an exaggerated bow to the witch and said.

"Until we meet again, thou foul villain."

As everyone walked away from Moscareina, someone crashed into Kage and papers went flying. It was a brunette woman in her lower twenties with thick glasses. Flustered and nervous as she began picking up papers, until she looked up and everyone saw that it was Marguerite the sandwich delivery girl. "Sorry about that I was in a rush to visit some relatives and *GASP* it's you again. That was totally my mistake mister I wasn't looking where I was going but I'll clean this up. Hope I didn't hit you too hard but...do you work out? You seemed kinda strong when I crashed into you like you do sports like maybe fencing or rowing a boat.

...

You're not gonna sue me are you?"

Taken aback by Margurites sudden appearance, Kage was about to (kindof) answer her 'questions'. When her last words threw him off completely. Stooping to help pick up her papers, he said in a confused tone of voice.

"Sue you? What for? It's not like you did it on purpose."

"Well, some customers are less understanding than others. One threatened to sue because the pickles they ordered on the side touched one of their sandwiches. They didn't but is still wasn't a pleasant delivery. And it tends to be the richer customers who complain more about the small stuff so thank you for being a rich person but not like those rich people." Marguerite seemed relieved. She was also heavily blushing.

"Uh... 'cough' you're welcome Miss Marguerite."

Kage reached up to rub the back his neck, unnerved by Marguerites blushing and her (possibly?) unintentional reminder of her 'piratey dream'.

"Y-yeah, some rich people can be jerks. I mean, it was only pickles. I'd like to think i'll never be that picky about my food. No ever take out any frustration on the delivery girl because i'm too arrogant for my own good." Smiling nervously as he kindof rambled, Kage added. "I have... ways of making sure money never goes to my head.

'cough'

I, uh, don't fence and have never been on a boat. However, i do know how to handle a sword."

"Oh my. With you not having a peg leg or missing a hand or something you must be very coordinated with your sword. Rich, talented, and and and and..."

"I couldn't help but overhear and I happen to do a lot of sailing." Stepping right in front of Kage was a muscular, tanned, and shirtless man. His baggy, vertical striped trousers were held up with a thick black leather belt whose buckle had a stylized maple leaf similar to some elements of Dee's armor. With a bandana topping his head and a smug smile topping his expression, he said, "I'm sure I could take you on quite the fantastic voyage."

"Your voyaging has clearly never taught you manners," Kage snapped without thinking as the 'smug expression' stepped in his way.

Then he looked again. Tall, muscular, not a local, brash and loud. With a Maple leaf buckle.

This guy definitely seems like he could be our quarry.
The maple buckle does indeed imply a possible connection to Viknadia.
It does?
I said possibly. Look again though. The design does seem to resemble the aesthetic of our warrior Princesses armour.
So it does. Interesting.

Beathra stepped forward without hesitation with a beaming smile.

 

"Aye," he said jovially, "it is clear from your bearing that you have sailed many a sea!"

 

Here he gave a slight pause, seeming to bask in the man's glory, then continued, "I once knew a sailor - quite a worthy one at that - and he told me, though far and wide the seaman may travel, he'll always take, as he put it 'a bit-o-home' with him.  Some trinket or bauble to announce with pride his homeland. And I see that you possess a Viknadian leaf of remarkable craftsmanship and detail. If what my dear friend told me is true, you must have traveled far indeed!"
