We dream of home, I dream of life out of here. Their dreams are small, my dreams don't know fear. I got a heart full of hope, I will change everything. No matter what I am told, how impossible it seems.

>>804614 Question, can the same thing be used for two things in a summoning? like The vangaurd needs something sharp and something used for war, A sword would fit both. Would that work or do they need to be separate?

No, the object described as Something "Blank" is the catalyst the summon sygil is drawn on and what the demon emerges from. The sacrificed reagent can't also be the catalyst object.

You make your way to the Inn. There are four men playing what you assume is the "Soul Poker" Todd talked about, the bartender is unoccupied. You approach the front desk.

>>804614
Check inventory to see if we have anything we don't need anymore. Also, we have multiple of the same kind of weapon (gun), so we cam sell one and keep the better one.

>>804633
That's a good question.

Another question is, can we use 1 thing to do 2 summons at once? For example: The Roaming Gluttony and the Aquatic Stalker both require Something Metallic. So if we had all the materials for both but only 1 Something Metallic, could we use the 1 Something Metallic to summon both of them or do we have to choose just 1 of them?

Gold coins are metallic and shiny, but drawing the symbol on the tiny surface is difficult.

Each summon requires its on ingredients, only one demon can be summoned from a catalyst object.

You head over to the gambling table.

Thin Man: Dammit! I'm out for today.

Big Man: Better luck next time Mak, come back when lady luck's finished screwin' ya!

Mak: Up yours Joel!

Joel: So whatcha lookin' pal you want in?

You: I'm not familiar with this game, what makes Soul Poker different from normal ?

Joel: Well the rules are all the same, its the Texas Hold'em style but the main difference are the use of Special and Soul Cards.

Joel: Special cards have different effects on how the games played: there's the hand swap card, the re-draw card, etcetera.

Joel points a strange statue on the table.

Joel: This here's called a Seeker Totem, it deals the cards and scans your soul to create unique cards. Depending on what sort of person you are it creates a Special card for the game.

Joel: So a game with different people means a game with different effect cards in the mix.

Joel: People think you bet with your soul, but we just use regular chips and money. So d'ya want in ?

Do want to play ? You've got 330 gold to spare.

You decide to play.

Joel: Alright then take a seat. First things first you've go to place your hand on the Seeker Totem to generate your soul card.

You do as Joel said and touch the Seeker Totem. The wooden figure begins to emit blue energy before a card materializes in the air above your hand.

To increase the randomness of the cards in the community hand, the dealer throws away every other card they draw. Those cards are burned and sent to the burn pile. with [BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE] you may replace a card in your hand with one of these.

These special cards sure are powerful...

I'm worried about Reset The World basically guaranteeing the holder of the card has a good hand, but this card is almost as good.

Let's check the 15. Once we see more of the community hand we can decide what card to exchange. The Ace we have is good enough to keep going, at least.
>>
No. 804788 ID: 031add

I think we are ignoring what the cards are telling us. One of these players is the embodiment of "Pass the Debt" a card that avoids paying, they might try to cheat or leave without paying. "Burn Down the House" could mean the player that summoned it is a psychopath, or maybe just a run-of-the-mill pyromaniac. This may also give us a hint as to their playstyle the Pass the Debt will likely be more reserved in their bets trying to get the best profit possible with the least risk whereas the Burn Down the House is likely less cautious or even aggressive in their playstyle.

Um, I think everyone is supposed to have to match the raise or fold, but okay fine whatever.

Check. We're still waiting for a good card, and trying to bluff will just result in whoever's holding the reset card to use it if he believes the bluff or to make us pay if he doesn't. Can't force someone with the reset card to fold.
The mere presence of that card really throws the entire flow of the game out of whack. I feel like we should stop playing after this round finishes.

There is only one Soul Card per player in the game, 8 other Special Cards are also included but are less powerful. Telling a Soul Card from a Normal Special tends to be pretty easy: Special Cards have simple names such as [CANCEL] or [SKIP], Soul cards have more complex names like [BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE] and [RESET THE WORLD].

There is no longer a [RESET THE WORLD] card since its been used.

ALL. IN. Not that it will do much in terms of the game, but if someone is looking from a distance and hears you say all in, and you take over half what you put in, all from the very first round of the game, it will generate respect. Respect you need to get a merc job.

Keep the card, you have a 95% chance of winning, and the 5% comes from outside factors.

Even though we don't need 2 guns, think carefully about which you should sell.

I say keep the gun that has more attack power and sell the weaker one.

No. 804908 ID: 3abd97

Keep both guns. It never hurts to have a surprise holdout.

Sell the gauntlet, though. We're not going to use it for its intended armor purpose, and we should be able to find cheaper reflective surfaces for summoning. (We could buy a few cheap hand mirrors, say).
>>
No. 804910 ID: 094652

Keep both guns, it takes time to reload and having a backup pistol can make all the difference.

Medi: Oh no you're right on time! I need somebody to help me organize my stock, I have a hard time getting everything together I'm so busy.

You and Issei could do this job in no time, but you also feel like drawing attention to Medi's low stock of books, it's hard to believe this place has stayed open for so long with such a limited supply. What do you do ?

Well, libraries don't need to turn a profit to stay open- they're often funded by the local government.

Still, yeah, ask if something happened. There are less books than you would expect!

Issei, do you like guns?

So, how much is the pay? I guess we could do it, but I got the feeling almost all of the books are stored somewhere else, and our time estimate could be wrong.

To be able to dual wield and not drop your accuracy you'll need to be pretty proficient (8 SKILL).

>>804923
(Issei: i've never been a fan of guns, i've never found much use in them.)

You: How much would this job pay ?

Medi: Well it shouldn't take too long, I'm only giving this job because my ladder broke and I can't reach the higher shelves.

Medi: For the work and time I can give up 100 gold for your time.

>>804916
>>804918

You: Are most of your books in the back ? there aren't a lot of books out here.

Medi: Yeah, well... something happened recently that's reduced my stock of literature.

Medi: The Regent Church did a random inspection on my library and found an "unauthorized" book in my possession. They confiscated it and deemed my entire collection heretical taking everything else, the books in here now are scavenged, donated, or bibles and scriptures sent by the Church.

Medi: I-I'm sure after they go through all of them and authorize my books they'll return them... I hope.

Knowing the lazy Regent Church you doubt they'll ever get around to returning them. Those books are gone unless somebody goes and gets them. The Regent Church station is outside of the city way past the jail, you can go there if you want to try and steal them back.

for now you get to work organizing, Issei grabs the higher books and you place them in the correct spaces.

Stealing the book collection comes back is a good deed. And we can pocket the heretical tome for ourself (it's just gonna get her in trouble again if we leave it).

Well, it's a good thing you've got someone as tall as Issei with you! Otherwise, this job would've been difficult for a midget like you! XD

>>804927
That's nice and all, but do we even have a way to transport an entire library worth of books? I'm pretty sure we can't stick all of them in our bag and carry them back with us, there's too many!

The days starting to run out, you'll see about stealing those books back tomorrow.
There'll be more time to think up a plan after that.

>>804931
Non of the books are really interesting to you, and a lot of them are so damaged they end halfway through. There was a library in Daesfield, the pagan town where you grew up, it was full of incredibly long and boring books that you were too young to get through; seeing this library makes you think of how much you miss Daesfield sometimes.

You finish up organizing the books and collect your 100 gold bringing you up to 615 G, now that you can spend some money without worrying about going bankrupt you head back to Todd's and pick up a Second Helchaim map for 300 gold bringing back down to 315 G.

Some people think that place is ground zero for the disaster that ruined Helchaim, you aren't sure if it's true or not but you've heard stuff gets strange the closer you get to that place.

>>804954
You swing back around to the general store for a Lantern, a Tent, and some Jerky for 65G bringing you to 250G. It's starting to get late, it's best you head to the inn to get a room.

Afterwards you head back to the Desert Cat Inn to rent a two-bed room for 15G and turn in for the night.

Does Issei need to sleep? Cause he might get bored waiting for you to wake up.

And since you're gonna be sharing a room with him, even though you got a room with 2 beds, hope you don't mind if he decides to suddenly come and snuggle with ya! XD

You: Issei do you even need to sleep ?

Issei: i don't really NEED to do anything but eat.

You: So you don't know anything about what you are or where you came from ?

Issei: oh i know where i came from...sort of.

Issei: way way way back i remember crawling out of a hole full of black water. i was very small, about a third of the size i am now.

Issei: i don't remember where i was born, but i do remember swimming for a long time before i found my first human. she was so nice, thought i was some sort of odd squid. she put me in a fish tank and fed me strawberries from her garden.

You: You don't feed squids strawberries ?

Issei: anyway, her house got broken into by bandits. they took me in a bag, probably to eat me, but they sure were in for a surprise when i was the one chewing on their bones. When i got back to her house she was gone... since then i've just been wandering around

Issei: at first i was looking for her, then i learned humans don't live as long as i do. so i've just been going around doing whatever comes up eating whoever deserves it.

So then how did you get that song written about you? I take it since the thief survived and met with someone who ate evil people he wanted to change his ways. Maybe he became a bard and wrote it?

No. 805072 ID: 3abd97

Sounds fair. There are lots of people who deserve to be eaten, probably. I'm glad the first human you met was one of the nice ones, though.

is there anything from your past you can share ?

You: Well, I lived in Daesfield for a good portion of my life, Pagan community built into the side of a mountain.

Issei: why is it called daesFIELD if its built into a mountain ?

You: guess nobody really like the name Daes-mountain. Anyway my life was pretty normal, even with the wraps I have to wear nobody really cared since pagan dress-code is pretty odd.

You: The person in my life that really made a big impression on me was my great-great-great-great-great-grandfather, tied his soul to a statue using an old pagan ritual, he used to tell me about how the world use to be lush with green trees and plants until the disaster.

Issei: i've heard of that too, so it was true ?

You: Yes, it wasn't peaceful but it's better than it was now. Aside from that my childhood wasn't anything special.

You: The one thing I remember the most were the potatoes, Daesfield grew tones of potatoes. Hell I should be sick of the things by now, but I always crave the damn things and I can never find them anywhere else.

Issei: did you get hit on a lot ?

You: Odd question but no, I was never much of a ladies man...

Issei: i meant by guys

You:...No? Why would you ask that.

Issei: i'm just saying you filled out that dress pretty well.

You:...

You: GOODNIGHT ISSEI
