Hold my hand
Ooh, baby, it's a long way down to the bottom of the river
Hold my hand
Ooh, baby, it's a long way down, a long way down
If you get sleep or if you get none
The cock's gonna call in the morning, baby
Check the cupboard for your daddy's gun
Red sun rises like an early warning
The Lord's gonna come for your first born son
His hair's on fire and his heart is burning
So go to the river where the water runs
Wash him deep where the tides are turning

Maybe it isn't a pattern with an order. Perhaps whenever we put in one answer, it will always give us one answer? if we put in dawn, we might get morning again, and we will always get morning if we use dawn?

I actually think that the arrow here: >>840883 is pointing at the top panel because we're simply supposed to get the word "DAWN" to show up in the top panel.

Or maybe the dot in the middle of the door is a hint of some kind?

You'd better hope that when you look inside of that thing, it's not something that requires you to have 2 eyes! Because if it is, then you're outta luck!

Also tell everyone that there's nothing dangerous in here and they should stop hiding outside of the door and get in here already!

After a lot of yelling and cursing with your friends coming to check in on you afterwards the bleeding stops and eventually you can open your eye again. It feels weird though, everything seems much more in focus than before. You don't know how to describe it but your sight feels better!

Actually, just to cover all of our bases, unwrap your other eye to see if it's back. I mean, there's a machine here that can reset the world, so I don't think it's too farfetched for there to be a machine that can give you back your eye.

No, because she was born blind, so her eyesight wouldn't be restored.

But can it allow her to see for the first time in her life? Probably.

However, I don't think we should try that without asking her first. Or at least asking the Administrator if the machine can do that.

When you go to investigate the machine again the screen inside is no longer lit, there's no scanning or anything. It's too big to move or do anything with. You decide to move on with Issei and Troy to investigate more of the rooms but a lot of them are empty or locked. There isn't much to investigate on this level of the Cage so you decide to head back up.

The Administrator pulls his curtains back to speak to you.

Admin: So you opened one of those locked doors huh ? Sometimes people from previous games leave things in my cage and I'm too lazy to clean them out. A lot of the time's they are helpful but I've never seen any of them myself. The lower layers get shed away every time a world resets and a new one is added on top, so I just let the older rooms waste away.

You can maybe do one more thing before you'll go to bed.

>Uma and Hakim
They're talking in the main chamber of the Gilded Cage.

>Fiddler Imp
He's hanging out in the cage marveling at the golden walls.

>The Administrator
You're not sure he can move from that spot behind the curtains.

Well Flint isn't here right now so we can't ask him.

But, yeah, we should get on that real soon because if the world resets, then whatever info we're looking for about that guy will end up being erased!

>2 Priest Charms?
No, I don't think so. I think the only one we've got was the Priest Charm Knife we found in Barleyville in the safe under the abandoned house.

You decide to speak Hakim and Uma. You're a little hesitant to speak to guy who's ordered your death on multiple occasions, but you're sure he's harmless as long as Uma's here. The two are sitting on a bench off to the side of the chamber speaking to each other.

Uma:...There are 4 choices A.) 25% B.)50% C.) 60% and D.) 25%. What are the odds of you picking the right answer at random ?

Hakim:...50% cause there are two 25%'s right ? Or wait... maybe it's just 25% regardless ?

You: Hi Uma, Hakim. What're you two doing ?

Uma: Asking Hakim dumb questions to see if he get's them right

Hakim: I can't be 60%...can it ?

Uma: Did you wanna ask us something ?
>>
No. 841243 ID: 13fded

i was thinking about the voodoo community, what are they like and how should we approach them, but it all can wait. I love dumb questions.
Since both 25% and 50% are possible right answer you have 75% chance of picking a right answer by chance.
>>
No. 841244 ID: 3ce125

>>841239
It's 0%. None of the listed answers are right so you have to give one of your own, which isn't a random choice so it still counts as valid.

Ask how they met. And what voodoo is like.

No. 841274 ID: 9b80a5

we should probably put these on a to do list:

go get Ada,
Ada (and possibly their people) could be amazing help if they are willing to help us with their magic tech especially as they now have to pick a side or they will get wiped from existence soon and i HIGHLY doubt that they want to help the church

get the rest of the shadow men:
sense haikim is with us, and i don't think they actual hate or are that mad, as for the majority of the people they have sent after you you have let live, though issei may have objections to a few of them cause they may be corrupt

get resources and info on the church:
oh and we cant forget that troy had a lot of contacts, we could use that to get info on the church's movements, azerite, and also they could be a supplier of resources like weapons ammo and summoning supplies for going to full blown war with the church

tell me if im forgetting anything

No. 841276 ID: 094652

Honestly, you're wondering when they're going to screw you over. Sure, the odds of them defecting to the blue team of backstabbing self-righteous rubes is pretty low, but there can be only one Overgod, and Hakim's been playing the protagonist role in his story for decades. How long until he decides to take center stage by force? Well, you'll wait. And you'll be ready. Right?

Of course, you're not going to say any of this. You're going to pick E)Boobs.

841371

>How do you two know each other ?
Hakim: A while back I saw Gya rip apart a couple of thugs in a back alley, she showed up a few times in Itsdin doing who know's what. She seemed capable so I decided to hire her to help me despite her attitude. She stayed in our hideout

Hakim: The next day I checked in on her and it was like she was a different person, all of that murderous rage and childish sadism was gone. That's when I met Uma. I decided to keep Gya employed to make sure I could keep an eye on Uma, I had no idea what a prophet god was capable of doing to her.

>What's voodoo like ?
Hakim: It's not really as spiritual as Paganism seems. It's less religious and more a technique to tricking Lowa out of their stuff, sure you need knowledge in rituals and spirits to make it work but all in all its mostly talking, bartering, or cheating if you can get away with it. The voodoo community isn't as closely connected as pagans, lots of voodoo users keep to themselves or have small groups to follow them.

>Tracking the dead
Hakim: Well it'd be hard, I'm more used to tracking living people but I'm sure I could find a dead person if I got a belonging. But doing this will destroy whatever I use.

>Karas' Card
Hakim: A human mind soul and body trapped in a portable object ? Oh boy what I couldn't get for that! There are plenty of Lowa who'd kill for one of those. I can barter some important information out of them with that and maybe more.

>I'm sure I could find a dead person if I got a belonging. But doing this will destroy whatever I use.
Crap. Guess we can't do that then, we need the violin to summon Fiddler Imp. And I'm sure Fiddler Imp wouldn't want us to destroy the violin.

>Could do lots of stuff with Karas.
Well, he's a Priest and, according to Issei, he's rotten enough to deserve whatever happens to him.

But Flint still has Karas, so Hakim will have to wait for him to get back before he can do whatever he's gonna do.

I'd ask Hakim what kinda info he'd get? Locations of Azurite or something else that could help us out?

Let's ask Uma when she met Gya and how long ago that was?

No. 841390 ID: 13fded

For Hakim:
Can he tell us about that Lowa we saw? What are the terms of this deal he have little time to fulfill? What is he competing with Gallows? How can one of us be more just than the other if we have the same objective and are working together?

For Uma:
It's great to have someone intelligent around, but we hadn't many opportunities for mutant fish fights and she doesn't seem prepared for conventional fights. Does she want to keep risking her life with us or would she prefer to wait in the Gilded Cage?

Riddle:
As I was going to the fair, I saw a man with golden hair. He had 3 sons each with another one. How many people were going to the fair?

You hand Hakim the music sheet. You've memorized it anyway.

Hakim: ...Yeah this should work, I'll see what I can do but it won't work right away. You'll have to wait a little.

>Does Uma want to stay in the Gilded Cage ?
Uma: Well...It sorta seems like you don't need me outside, I can stay here if you want me to. And if you do need me later you'll know where I am.

>>841386
Hakim: Well probably not, we'll have to see how the negotiations go. I'm good but I ain't a miracle worker.

Hakim: They're just fine, in fact I still need to check back with them soon. Getting the Shadowmen situated here might be a good idea.

Would giving him a name help? If so, then I guess we can tell him we're looking for Mason Anthem and his pagan name was Mojo.

>And if you do need me later you'll know where I am.
Actually, there's still 2 things that she's gotta do. She should go visit that bug museum, because she might not get another chance to do so, and she should go warn her friends and family about the end of the world.

Obviously, we wouldn't send her out alone. So who should we send with her?

>Well probably not, we'll have to see how the negotiations go. I'm good but I ain't a miracle worker.
"If you can't locate all of the Azurite we need, then at least try to get a location on some of it or at the very least a location of 1 orb."

Maybe ask him if we should try looking behind that door he said he found in Itsdin?

>Itsdin Door.
Hakim: Of course we'll have to check the door, last time I looked though it was locked. We can go in the morning.

The Administrator opens the curtains to his cage again.

Admin: Yes that was a door I created for when the game started. I remember exactly where I put it too. Since you've already started the game I might as well unlock if or you...there.

Admin: I forgot what I put down there, but I'm sure it's something meaningful or else I wouldn't have made the room.

You feel like you've enough for today, it's time to go to bed. The Administrator points you to a free room for you to sleep in. Inside the room has the same golden color scheme as the rest of the Cage; there's a closet, a desk, and a bathroom in the back. The first thing you do is make a list of what you should do next. Of course you're going to look for azerite but gaining more resources will make it easier.

>Ada and the Unter
You're sure you can get some help from Ada if you show her what you found here.
