Sakuya Quest 7 - A Z-Machine Adventure
« on: January 20, 2017, 03:40:38 AM »

>You are Sakuya Izayoi, Accidental Chrononaut!
>After having a normal morning, an explosion at the mansion lead to you having some kind of accident while trying to freeze time and blacking out. You awoke in a strange forest, and after exploring and bickering with some faeries, eventually found a river, and then some fisherwomen. From there, you sent to their town, a little farming hamlet called True Glorian, and after a faux paus on your part, met with their leader, one Sir Kay of the Round Table. Sir Kay handled some of your questions, helping you figure out that you were in someplace still called Gensokyo. Following his advice, you went northward, over a sizable forest, and found an equally sizable town, larger than any you had seen before. From there, you went eastward after inquiring with a local youkai and found the Hakurei Shrine, and Reimu.
>You learned that you have awoken centuries into the future. Reimu has become a goddess, Scarlet Devil Mansion is gone, and the world has changed greatly, According to Reimu, there is a surviving member of the Mansion at the Myouren Temple, which seems to have been renamed the Hijiri Temple. After inquiring about things such as who is still around, and what had happened in the world, you decided to try to learn what you could, then find a way home. You have obtained a blessing from your old friend-turned-goddess, and her invitation to return whenever you need to.
>After some false starts, you made your way to the Hijiri Temple, and found Flandre had taken up residence there, as well as the youkai form of her old pet dog. She told you the story of the slow decline of Scarlet Devil Mansion, as as much about the fates of its residents as she could. You then convinced her to join you for a time. With Flandre in tow, you followed Reimu's advice and went to Bhava-Agra. There you encountered Miko, who had ascended to Celestialhood herself, and followed her to the Dragon Palace. You briefly met Tenshi, who seemed to have become the leader in the mean time, and then was taken to meet Ran Yakumo, who had ascended herself as a consequence of being a kitsune. >Ran seemed to have taken over Yukari's role, and after a somewhat rocky start, offered to help try to return you to your proper place in time, giving you a few items to seek out for her to do so: Rainbow Sand, an object that has endured between your era and this one, and echoes of the incident that brought you here.  She gave you a pendant to collect the last one with. Armed with this, you then went on to explore a new place that had sprung up since your departure from history: Apex.
>Apex was a riot of colors, technologies and cultures, almost too much to take in; loud, crowded, and alien. With Flandre's help, you found a tea house that Nue runs, and fulfilled an obligation that you made to Sir Kay. Along the way, you were also robbed by a youkai named Coyote, who helped you find your way to Nue's place. Nue welcomed you, and told you what she knew, suggesting that you seek out someone called the Rainbow Serpent to get the rainbow sand you need, then suggested visiting the central building, the Diet, to learn more.
>Taking this advice, you met Kanako and Sir Ector, father of Sir Kay, in the lobby. Discussing with them, you got a general idea of where the Rainbow Serpent might be found, and something of an idea of what to expect, as well as a little background on Apex itself. You then followed their directions into the Avalonian Quarter. Asking around led you toward a marketplace, where you met the somewhat familiar face of the Hell Raven, who was all too happy to help you find your way while talking about various things.
>With her help, you found the Rainbow Serpent in a public forest, and followed her on a strange journey that lead you through barren landscapes and speaking with a talking nautilus before suddenly awakening on the ground with the Rainbow Sand you needed in hand, and no sign of your benefactor, just a talking nautilus in the nearby creek. The hell raven then took you Hatate's place of business, where you managed to secure a meeting with the tengu, talk for a little bit, and obtain a picture of Flandre. Splitting off from her, you visited Shou at the Myouren branch temple and found Tojiko there as well. Afterward, you finally put Apex behind you and escorted Flandre back home.
>You set out to find Futo, and did so successfully. After a chat with her, however, you encountered a shinigami with orders to take you back to Higan. You complied, and found that Komachi had become the Yama in the intervening time, and convinced her to give you time to sort things out before being tried for apparently exceeding your lifespan. as an aid, she ordered the shinigami to take you to two places with her abilities. While on the way, however, things became complicated as Yuuka managed to reach into whatever distortion the shinigami causes while travelling and yank you out of it. Things were tense for a little bit, but the two of you eventually came to an understanding. You then met with a kappa in Kanako's service, who agreed to provide rapid transit to the other cities on the goddess' orders.
>You then returned to the site of Scarlet Devil Mansion, where you encountered a hostile agent of The Warlord, a local troublemaker, trying to excavate any lost items of power that may have been left behind. You defeated her after a brief but nasty fight, and took it upon yourself to explore. You found a wooden guardian monstrosity, and past it a hidden underground lair, where Alice has been hiding for heaven knows how long, attempting to perfect vessels for Patchouli and Marisa, both of whom had passed on. She has agreed to aid you in exchange for bringing her research back to her past self.
>After visiting the dojo that Meiling had established and was buried at, you visited the Hakurei Shrine once more for some ideas, then returned to the old human village to visit a museum in hopes of finding the last component you need to return home. Meeting with the staff gave you some hope, they have some old coins they are willing to part with for a high price or a equivalent trade. Using the vehicle that Kanako loaned you, you went to the netherworld in an effort kind of patch things up with Yuyuko. It is unclear if you really succeeded or not, but you didn't come away feeling sated at all. Afterward you picked up Nue, and had a rather awkward sort of date with the kappa driving the vehicle and crushed her heart. From there, you took Nue to meet with Sir Kay, who are apparently old acquaintances.
>From there you went to gather some digging supplies, and prepared to go hunting for the last piece you needed the old fashioned way! Along the way you met one Shuuei Spectre, who offered to take the tools off your hands when you were done. Returning to the ruins of Scarlet Devil Mansion, you worked you way up to the old stone bridge that used to be reasonably close to it, and found that faeries still liked to gather there. In particular, you found one of your previous maids, and quickly got drawn into dealing with a monster that has been terrorizing them. This monster, the Wumpus, turned out to be a savage and primative brute of a youkai who attacked you directly, and barely let up until you finally took her down in a drawn out battle.
>Afterward the maid, Dreamy Sky, showed you on old cache of toys and junk that a faerie kept in the mansion ruins, not long after you vanished from history. Securing it, and taking care not to damage the aged and delicate thing, you reunited with Mitsu and had a brief flight back to her home in Old Hometown. Dreamy did not take well to the flight, and is slow to leave, sitting on your lap as you sit in the vehicle's passenger seat.

> Is anyone holding onto that box?

>Currently, it is resting on Dreamy's lap. You have been keeping it in place while holding her steady.

>It's a bit of a struggle, Dreamy does weight about as much as a small child and your torso isn't quite better yet (though it is doing marvelously, from what you can feel). But you manage to stand up. She is more or less limp in your arms.
