You awaken. Everything sounds like you're underwater. Something is attached to your head and covering your ears. You're tied to a chair. It hurts. Your eyes are blurry. You don't know where this is. You can't remember how you got here. You can't remember anything. Trying to remember makes your head hurt even more.

No, seriously, why is destroying your clothes a problem in the first place? Is this a problem you have, or that people have in general?

It's a problem you have with the White Mage uniform. The outfit is volitionally made as complicated and difficult to put on as possible with lots of ribbons, buttons, and zippers connecting things that you can't reach. This is because the White Mages have a proprietary version of [Dressup] called [W-Dress] that lets you put on your outfit like a magical girl transformation. Evangate Official White Mage uniforms have some pretty powerful stat enchantments on them, depending on the tier. Historically, this made White Mages the victim of a lot of thefts by Rogues with said White Mage mostly unable to defend themselves against their attackers. In an effort to deter this, the White Mage uniform became more complex. The sleeves are separate pieces that need to be buttoned underneath the blue crop top, which, itself, must be threaded in and out of the bow in several spots like belt loops on a pair of pants. There are other issues too, but you haven't bothered to learn them all, and all of the complexity is ultimately hidden from view. But the enchantments do not function unless absolutely everything is put exactly into place, just right. In theory this makes it so thieves are unable to use the uniforms they steal. In practice, this just spawned a cottage industry of "White Smiths" who disenchant the uniforms and reassigned the stats to stone accessories. It's more of a pain to the intended users than to the Rogues.

For you, in particular, putting on the suit isn't the problem, but taking it off is. Due to an oversight, [W-Dress-R] counts as a self targeted offensive disarm spell. [Soft Touch] fizzles all offensive magic. You've complained many times about this, and even written your own patch to [W-Dress-R] to fix this issue, but it's been a little over a year and there's still no word on how long it'll take to review the change and put it in the main library so you can cast it from your PDA, rather than having to waste good time and money writing out scrolls every time you want to undress.

That dress makes you look fat. Have you ever tried a cheongsam with the bows around your thighs?

One thing comes to mind about your soft touch curse: have you ever considered the possibility that humans gain an understanding of restraint by breaking things and/or pushing them into instigating harm, and that by breaking this curse your every action for the first two turns would be sheer destructive power from the subconscious unguided force you can put into your daily life knowing that you are literally incapable of harming anything?
>>
No. 772338 ID: 3abd97

Well, your stats are absurd enough you could probably wear joke equips considering serious equips probably only return marginal gains. (Unless the stat bonuses are multiplicative rather than additive, but still, there's a point where added power stops yielding practical increases in utility, and you seem well past that).

So... next priority. Acquire footwear?

Oh that's just one of those work quests. They're practically advertisements. Spring Cleaning just means they're going to inspect your work station to make sure you're not hiding any pets on the premises or anything like that, and there's a prize they'll be giving out to whomever buys the most name brand sponsored sanitary napkins.

Great point! There are two articles of clothing missing to make this forgery into a facsimile. You need a pair of boots, and you need a hat. There are a few ways to go about getting boots and hats. You could head to the locker room and collect your clothes from your locker, or you could head to the armory and ask for a new set.

You should also find your hair tie and earrings. You look kinda goofy without your hair tie to make your massive cowlick look intentional. You're not sure where you left those items though.

>Good god why is the building designed like that?
I would guess form follows function? They do magical research here, the unique layout could be to mage harvesting magical energy from the environment easier, it could act as the basic spell circle layout for certain spells, it could be a containment system or seal for the experiments, or some combination therein.

Or maybe it's another set of propitiatory gobbledygook that defies common sense.

>You could head to the locker room and collect your clothes from your locker, or you could head to the armory and ask for a new set.
It seems rude and a little wasteful to ask for new stuff if you've got perfectly good stuff in your locker. Unless they need a wash or something. But you'd think general cleanliness utility spells would be withing your means, unless those erroneously count as an offensive spell as well.

>You should also find your hair tie and earrings. You look kinda goofy without your hair tie to make your massive cowlick look intentional. You're not sure where you left those items though.

>Domain border information

Domain borders are, as the name implies, borders of domains. Domains are a form of magic that applies an effect to an area. In the case of the Masseusery, the domain gives off a soothing and calming sensation, as well as a sweet scent. The border is opaque because the Masseusery doesn't want Harmy looking at them while he putts. Harmy doesn't want to look at them while he putts either so it works out well for both sides.

Reviving the dead is child's play for you, assuming they haven't been dead for very long. People who've been dead longer than three zun are much harder to revive for most people but still pretty easy for you. After a day or so, you shouldn't really revive people because they come back as Shamblers, and if you don't have a Kaiba stored of them, there's nothing you can do for them. Vita here couldn't have been dead for longer than the time it took you to get dressed and read through your quests though. Not unless Lisa's cold as ice, anyway.

You use the lowest tier rez spell you know, which brings people back to life feeling weak and sick. You really want Vita to learn her lesson here. She screams, as most inexperienced people do when they come back from the cold white. You give her a good talking to.

[Raise] is plenty bad. It leaves you so close to death that if someone were to walk over and slap her, she'd die all over again. It's only intended to be used outside of combat and in conjunction with other spells. Any worse and it'd probably count as offense, somehow.

>>774133
You interrogate Vita some more. You can't help but get a little angry at the explanation. Vita puts up some resistance to your scolding, but for the most part she's pretty passive in her weakened state.

She technically hasn't admitted any guilt, but you get the feeling she's learned her lesson. Perhaps not in a personality changing way, but at least she probably has enough sense not to kill herself while alone again.

Heal her up, tell her nicely to take better care of herself and not take stupid risks even if the place is filled with white mages and that if we carried on with what we were doing when we thought we were just doing yoga like we thought you did she could have been permanently dead if nobody noticed she was dead. it was just pure curiosity and paranoia that we decide to check if you were alive.

then just give her a hug and pat her on the head, no need to be overly cruel for someone just making a stupid decision. And remind her that "curiosity killed the cat" and touch one of her ears when you say that just to make sure the pun gets across. In this case that is actually true in a literal sense.

You decide you can't just leave her there on death's door like that, but you won't leave her without a lesson. You cast an old healing spell. The sort of spell one could cast but once, maybe twice a day. A Gloria Evangate original; short, unrefined, and vague.

This does the trick. Vita's strength is restored and the excess qualia dazzles her to no end. White Mages who use only the recommended, most up to date library spells often don't appreciate their own school and long for greener grasses. Figures Vita would be a script kitty.

You leave Vita with some parting advice and step through the domain border, into the Masseusery.

The triangular room with the accordion dividers is full of the smell of sweet incense. You just came from the left. On your right is the border to the locker room.

They're not labeled for privacy reasons, but it's not hard to remember 14 from the left.

While there are spells to unlock locks, they're subject to a lot of debate over the legal and ethical ramifications of their use, let alone their efficacy since every lock maker in the last decade is in a cat and mouse game with Puzzle Boxers and it's a real crap shoot as to which versions of which spells work with which locks and whether or not the locks are synced and up to date, and if they are, whether or not your combination is sniffable or not and it's just all terrible.

While it is the opinion of King Moncrefe that [Pick Lock] is perfectly okay to have on your PDA, the standard official version of that spell phones home to the blue mages on every use, so you don't want that anywhere near you. Too risky.

What seals is she talking about and are they in any way relevant to your massively overpowered and overleveled ass.

That or just recruit her. Well, if she'd like this issue corrected she can help push your patch for the undressing spell through the bureaucracy (she looks like she'd be good at that kind of thing) or she can help amend the dress code so you have an exception for this.

If she's not receptive just say "well, sorry, I'm not changing". She's probably not used to people just politely refusing to not follow the rules, so this may leave her flummoxed. Especially since there's not a thing anyone can do to force you to comply.

Seals? Well, I WOULD say she has a point but...I'm gonna go ahead and guess you've got special permission/some way around those that doesn't involve the hassle of the official uniforms, especially given the absurd mana pool you have. Otherwise the fake uniform wouldn't be nearly as useful as it is.
I'd figure point out your workaround that exists BECAUSE of your issues with the uniform. If she's not happy at that point just walk away and don't bother, because unless she can disenchant a GOD, she's basically asking us to constantly make scrolls of [W-Dress R] to use whenever it happens that we want to remove the thing.
Stupid Rouges...

Ask if that is an offer to provide you with an at least daily supply of patched [W-Dress-R] scrolls.

You attempt to reason with Peggy on why she should make an exception and turn the other way for you. Although she isn't interested in your problems, she goes silent when you mention how long it has been since you submitted the change to [W-Dress-R] with no upstream response.

If there's one thing Peggy dislikes more than people not observing the dress code, it's people not observing the code code.

Man, destroying an enchanted outfit a day must get expensive.

Well, this is awkward now.

Was there something you wanted to talk about? I'm assuming you weren't aware of my dressing deficiencies before you decided to pop in.

Can you add the standard enchantments (or at least some of them) to the zipper onesie without making it un-take-offable? You could discuss experimenting with that kind of modification, maybe.

If you succeeded, that would have the side effect of making it valuable enough to steal, and it'd be easier to steal than most, but I think you said the more complex standard uniforms still have that problem anyway.

Also, Peggy seems upset that someone else in the organization isn't following the Code Code, so politely following up with her about that might be a good idea.

You ask Peggy what she came to speak to you about. Peggy informs you that she needs your help to cast a new spell to make a pockmark to persuade some witch time to optimize said spell. However, as Peggy says all this, she realizes she has other things she needs to do before you can come with her, and she leaves.

With nothing left to do, you put on your boots and finish getting dressed!

Now, the question is, what do we do next? Should we head back to our office and make sure everything's tidy for the inspection, follow Peggy who seems to have an idea how to fulfill one of your long term goals, or perhaps we should do something else?

Classic example of Order fanatics being the bureaucrat's 8!+(#. Want raw control on paragon prefects? Just make a convoluted system on anything you don't want them to do and basic protocol for stuff you want!

Well, time to visit Miss Victoria. But limit your meeting to ten minutes.

Might as well change to your original outfit. You can discuss the higher ups on outfit management.

Isn't it a nice change when you're a participant in someone else's deal chain quest instead of running one yourself?

So... what now. We've got our clothes. Do we have work that needs to be done? Any appointments? Do we need to grab some food? (Well, starvation probably can't kill you anymore than anything else can, but it's not fun).

Not much has changed since you last opened your quest log. You need to pick up a tin of tennis balls and a gift for Harmy on the way home, but other than that, you mostly just need to do things for work. Perhaps you should add a quest to the log to follow up with Peggy and Victoria?

>>778412
Mika doesn't need your help to get around. You used to pick Heather up from school, but she's pretty independent these days and prefers to take the train to the temple by her school and get home that way.

>>778350
You have no food issues as you've long stopped getting hungry. You just eat minty things to keep your breath fresh from time to time, and flata root on your Earth Day.

As for work appointments, today's the first day of the year so it's generally pretty slow. Today's considered a good day to take on a bunch of projects to make excuses for future upper management requests you don't want to have time to do.

Nothing doing. It's much easier to ask forgiveness than permission.

Who's that back there?
You skipped over the "Meeting Maker" quest, what is that? Is that your "break God's Curse" quest?
Hmm, I guess today is JA 03. That means there's like two or three weeks left to do the job-related quests. No rush there.

Sure might as well.

>You have no food issues as you've long stopped getting hungry. You just eat minty things to keep your breath fresh from time to time, and flata root on your Earth Day.
Um. Do you miss food?

>figure out what Harmy likes before buying a present
Yes, that's probably a good idea.

>Today's considered a good day to take on a bunch of projects to make excuses for future upper management requests you don't want to have time to do.
Cool. What options do we have for projects? Do we need to sign onto existing ones, or can we make up a bunch of stuff and see what they let us get away with?

>Who's that back there?
That's Alice. She's ranked pretty high on the rental ladder. She's just getting dressed after a shower. Probably going to do a little paperwork before going home.

>You skipped over the "Meeting Maker" quest, what is that? Is that your "break God's Curse" quest?
It's just a stupid quest HPT put on your log to try to get you to stop avoiding time wasting meetings with time wasting doofuses.

>Hmm, I guess today is JA 03. That means there's like two or three weeks left to do the job-related quests. No rush there.
Today's JA01, which is the first day of the year. Either way, no rush.

>>779313
You add a quest to follow up with Peggy and Victoria, just as a reminder.

>Um. Do you miss food?
Not really. Food is sort of awful. White Mages aren't really supposed to eat anyway, although many still do.

>Cool. What options do we have for projects? Do we need to sign onto existing ones, or can we make up a bunch of stuff and see what they let us get away with?
Generally you make things up and find people to sign up with you. Peggy, just a moment ago, was trying to recruit you for one. Generally speaking, your options are to come up with something on your own, ask Harmy for work, accept work from random people who come to you, or wait a couple days until the QMs assign all unassigned people all the stuff nobody really wants to do.

Honestly, for lack of a better thing to do, maybe we should catch up with Penny and give her some help.

Hey have you ever tried dying and getting resurrected to break God's Curse? I mean magic doesn't usually persist past death does it? Vita mentioned [auto reincarnate], what was that exactly?

she's said she has been turned into ash before and she self resurrected simply from how much power she has. god's curse is clearly attached to her soul not her body.

Well we could go someplace where you'll bump into a bunch of random people, and see what work they're offering. Shop around.

Coming up with stuff on your own is tricky (since we're still asking and discovering basics about the setting, so it's hard to come up with an application you don't have yet, or a clever angle off something you do).

Did you have any of your own ideas you were already considering?
