(Shiki)Eiki Quest the 2nd - Text Adventure of Mystic Light
« on: January 06, 2011, 07:16:54 AM »
>You are Shikieiki Yamaxanadu, and it's been an awful past week.
>Lately you've been having these strange nightmares that consist of what is basically a multi-part The Reason You Suck Speech and Hannibal Lecture delivered by a mysterious, shadowy figure that looked like an Eldritch Abomination. Because of those nightmares, you've been doubting yourself, your position as the Yama, and how moral you really are. You haven't lectured anyone for the past week, which shows just how effective these nightmares are.
>And that's not the only problem. After the first nightmare, you woke up to find your Cleansed Crystal Mirror broken into little pieces. You don't even know if those can be normally destroyed. The day after that, your Rod of Remorse (see above link) was found destroyed as well. And the day after that, your ability to see deeds in black and white stopped working normally, only seeing shades of grey (figuratively). All of this came with a gradual reducing of your power. You're probably only as strong as Yukari Yakumo right about now, and it has no signs of stopping.
>You've been unable to carry out your job for the past week, so you've been hanging out with Komachi. That didn't help you relax at all.
>You have wandered around Gensokyo today, seeking answers to your problems. You have got Reimu to assist you with this. You have went over to Hakugyokurou, witnessed Youmu leaving Yuyuko, and Yuyuko joining your party. You have found out from Reisen about two rival fairy armies who are about to battle at the Scarlet Devil Mansion. You have went over to the SDM, and found out about Sakuya's forced compulsion to stab Meiling and found out about Sakuya's minor complaints about her master. (Say, you should go back to her to hear if Ichirin Kumoi knew anything about the fairy armies.) You have visited Eientei and talked to Eirin about your nightmares, and heard the voice in your head who you suppose is behind all this that it's ggoing to do something horrible to Koishi. After that, you visited Yukari. You told her about your nightmares, and have also found out about Ran's dislike of her master. Yukari then gapped you over to the Palace of the Earth Spirits, where you talked a bit with Satori about Koishi your affliction, but gained little from visiting there. After getting back aboveground, you visited Kanako to find out Koishi's whereabouts, and found that she was in the supposedly non-notable eastern western forests of Gensokyo. Over there, you found a field where several fairies were gathered, presumably one of the fairy armies Reisen talked about, "preparing" to invade the SDM. Yeah, this paragraph sounds like boring monotone with all of those periods, but it's certainly better than annoying exclamation marks.
>As Eiki, you are currently pursuing some footprints, who you think are Koishi's footprints.
>As Reimu, you are currently scouting the perimeter of the field for Koishi, not knowing that Eiki seems to have found her.
>As Yuyuko, you are currently being hugged by several fairies who sympathize with you due to the whole Youmu event.

>Note: Your actual name is Eiki Shiki (western order). Yamaxanadu is just a title.
>Any inconsistencies noted by the players will be fixed by the parser. This is my interpretation of the events of Maribel Quest, and my interpretation and the actual interpretation of locations, events, etc. are not exact.

>Deschampsia Dogger: Follow those footprints.
>You follow those footprints into the forest.

>"Koishi, is that you? It is very important we talk, surely you can feel that?"
>There is no answer.

Thought I replied to this.

>"Only vaguely, at best. To be honest, I was hoping that your talents may be of use to us. But, if you can not longer sense mental aspects, there's nothing to be done in that regard. Still, we hope to be able to do something for you."
