NPC Scheduler

Replacing our original NPC inbox, we are going to use an "appointment book" type set-up to help making NPC plotting and threading easier for everyone all around.

The following NPCs are available to be threaded with:
Rebbekah
Lindsy
Ledwika
Sergei
Feofan (Theasthai)
Sophia (Theasthai natively, though technically still in Verens)

Given the current low frequency of NPC threads, we are going to just keep all threads on this post! Be it network or log type, we can thread it out here unless requested otherwise.

So without further ado, fill out the following form. It's formatted in a "letter" type as that would be the only way characters can initially communicate and reach the NPCs.

[ KNOW WHAT, REBEKKAH? This is a humming call coming through, around lunch time, instead of the usual letter. Or hopefully around Rebekkah's lunchtime, if she even knows what those are in her busy life. Maybe he should've just gone for a letter as usual... but!!! ]

Rebekkah? It's Red! Uh, sorry if you were busy-- I wanted to arrange a time to meet you again! I've got some stuff to give you, and some big news! [ He can't help the sliver of excitement there, as much as he's pushing down on letting his emotions leak through. ] Do you have a time I can visit? A day?

[ ...if he sounds rushed, it's because he is rushing. ]

[ Success! And that makes him all the more buzzed, just the thought of the future meeting. Calm, Red!! Don't get ahead of yourself! ]

Alright! Is [ insert time here ] okay? I'll bring everything over!

[ The "everything", really, is less than Red made it sound out to be once he arrives and is allowed to go up to see her, even less than he'd brought to her last time with that long tube and the pieces of unused crystals from the quarry.

It's just him and a bag slung over his shoulder as usual, and a large envelope that looks bulky in its lower half, where something visually obvious not paper pokes against the walls. When Red sees Rebbekah, he beams a smile her way, jitters of nerves and anticipation both apparent on him. But he's keeping cool!! ]


Hey! Have you made any progress on your projects since I was last here?

[ It's a little nosy, but really, there's so much going on all the time in her lab that he wonders how much of really leaves the room. But then, that had been the case with Professor Oak, hadn't it? ]

[ Wow.

What else is there to think or feel than that? Other than a stunned feeling, where you know you're taking in a lot, but you yourself are paused of articulating how to take it all in. Just looking, gazing, before being pulled back into the reason of why you're here.

Which oh, wait. Nevermind. ]


Last time...-- Chrissie? [ Huh, what. ] That-- [ He can see 'that' from where he was. Was it in this direction, that one--? No, there it is, and he looks between it and Rebbekah in indication. ] That had something to do with Chrissie?

[ He watches his feet for surprise diagrams, but the coast seems to be clear... where he is. ]

--Oh, yeah!

[ Speaking about cutting her off, this makes a thought pop up. ]

Do you know if the crystals down there refuse to work for an otherworlder too?
gottacatch: (duh duh)

[personal profile] gottacatch 2017-01-16 12:15 am (UTC)(link)
I looked into the crystals around Shaarnath and Theasthai, but I forgot about that place! [ Dang, what a shame. ] You reminded me about it, saying how the crystals are likely the same.

[ As off the rails it might've sound, it was actually relevant, promise. ]

I wanted to know if the reason we couldn't use the crystals in the mountain had something to do with Simpathis, and how she's been keeping this place safe. [ The fact it might've been such an odd thing to ask though, he pulls a sheepish face. ]

I...had to get a new crystal recently, and I was curious. [ Anyway! ] But this means wherever Empatheias used to be below... it wasn't far from that mine?

But it's great news! You're getting closer to learning about the land your ancestors came from! [ His voice picks up the energy he'd taken from Rebbekah's sails previous, that long lost excitement returning. ]

I was starting to think those machines we found were imports after all. [ That was a possibility Rebbekah brought up before, wasn't it? ] Thras thinks Shaarnath used to be Simpathis's land in the past too, but when I used dunamis in the mines and outside the city in a test, they reacted pretty different.

Did you see what happens if something grows down there?

[personal profile] gottacatch 2017-01-18 04:54 am (UTC)(link)
Mm, that's it! It's the only time that's ever happened. Nothing happens around Shaarnath, so whatever's going on there... well, that'll need more figuring out.

[ And Rebbekah is the crystal person, not the land person. And crystals is what he has, remembering the envelope in his hold and coming closer,pulling out the flap from its tucked place. ]

This doesn't have anything to do with Simpathis, kinda, but I got some crystals for you. We found these near what looked like an old shrine... uhh, where would you like them? They're broken up, so...

[ He's looking for a clear spot, but at the same time, he'd rather wait to pull out the contents for an indication of where she'd prefer them than just dumping them anywhere. ]
gottacatch: (gotta be smart)

[personal profile] gottacatch 2017-01-18 05:11 am (UTC)(link)
[ There we go! Out comes a smaller envelope, and here he has to tear off where it's been closed, the pieces coming out in an array of colours as he speaks: silvery white, a dark gold, a muddied cream... ]

This was outside Theasthai, a few hours away-- on unaligned land! [ He looks away from the crystals at that, since is that cool or what??? ] Daimonia told her rep about it, and we went to check it out. There were camps too, and we even found a map of the area with locations marked out! But here, these-- there were more, but how old do you think these could be? Because the camps we found, they couldn't have been as old as the war!

[ Of course the lights make him steal a look upwards, and maybe he should think about them. ...but on the other hand, the lab should consider investing in better lights!

And really, he can barely contain his own excitement, though he does down to making it simply warm around him, as he takes out what else was in that envelope. Rebbekah's moved, but that doesn't mean he can't ready the charcoal images made by Shun for later, sheets of paper with picture-perfect copies of the ruined outdoor shrine (similar to this) by a shore, the set of camps lined. There's a map too, and letters written in a hand close to Thespian... ]


One of the letters talk about a creature that sounds like Daimonia from the description, and they mention the air balloons they used at the mountain. We asked how long they've been running them once we got back, and it's been around fifty years! With that and the notes on the map, it has to mean people have been living out there even without the Arehtei! Just think about what that means!

[ Or don't, since Red even touching on the thought that much makes the trolley before him bucks and nearly sends everything flying, until he slams his hands down onto it with a yelp. It doesn't stop him for longer than a second before he continues on. ]

We have to check it out!

[ Kyaa, she's so happy! ]

N-no, you're the first person I came to! You're the most official person I know! [ Sorry, but those lights--they're probably popping now. Rest in pieces because nobody cares right now. ]

Daimonia's people will take us there if we want to go again--and for free! [ Oh- ] Shun's going to talk to Daimonia, I'm sure they'll want to check it out too. But we can work together and investigate!

[ She would make a far better Daimonia-align, just saying.

But here, Red's going to pause on all this excitement on his end, eyes widening some. ]


Me? But... shouldn't someone else go? What would I say?

[ Isn't this really too important, Rebbekah!? ]
gottacatch: (pokket mons)

[personal profile] gottacatch 2017-02-04 10:31 pm (UTC)(link)
...has that happened before?

[ This is clearly not a normal question to ask, but.

From: Emizel | [personal profile] trademark_skull
Date: I don't even know anymore (12/something probably)
Message:

[There's no knowing if a telepathic message would make it all the way there. Instead Emizel would try with something simpler, physical. And regrettably slower. And less likely to get there--But he has to try anyway!]

I hope this makes it way towards ya. I just want to thank you for talking to Daimonia for me. Without your help I never would have been able to speak to Death, it really means a lot to me.

You're probably really busy, being a rep and all. But if you ever need anything I'm here for ya. It's the least I can do to return the favor.

trademark_skull: (F*ck yeah!)

[personal profile] trademark_skull 2017-01-21 07:37 am (UTC)(link)
[Wow Feofan, your handwriting is still so much better than Emizel's. Random inkblots aside.]

Feofan,

I would like that. You should come stay with us anyway for a night. I doubt Shun would mind. Although, maybe your council would. But maybe they would allow it being that it is with other representatives. Maybe that can convince them to let you go too.

But I think you would like Verens, it's different than Theasthai that's for sure. Even if big cities aren't your thing, there's still places like the parks and Lake Niras. Oh, and the Memory Tree. You can probably get to meet Peromei too. That is, if she's up for having visitors. She hasn't been feeling that well again...


[But that is a less positive thing to be talking about. Uh...]

But I would like to spend more time with you, regardless. Let me know when you're thinking about stopping by.

[The poor kid did come off as sort of lonely, having only an Arehtei to really talk to. So some extent Emizel kind of knew what that loneliness feels like, having actually friends now.]

[Have a letter sent by messenger bird!]

Miss Forsyth,

A couple months back I took a group to further explore Baizho. You may recall the items that I brought to you last time. What we found this time is significantly larger and more difficult to move, though I believe you may find it of interest. It appears to be a component of a generator found in the power plant where the pipes and cores were also recovered, and is in remarkably good and functional condition.

I apologize for not informing you sooner but circumstances prevented it.

The item has been placed in a storage unit which can be found (location given) and the combination to the lock is (combination here). Thankfully it was untouched from the recent thefts.

When you have the time to analyze it I would be very interested in your findings. I look forward to future correspondence.

-Obi-Wan Kenobi

OOC Questions:
The item in question is this from the Baizho excursion summary:
a truck-sized metal box, its outer casing warped and almost melted-looking but otherwise in jarringly clean condition, with great curled turbines and other complicated machinery visible through the distorted holes. Each one of these boxes exudes a sense of calm resignation not unlike the lighthouse near Theasthai, which may overpower the pervasive feeling of outrage if standing in close range.

Message:
Rebbekah,

Your findings are very exciting, and yet concerning at the same time. From what I've gathered, Sosyne's people met ruin by excessive amounts of calm. To think that they were generating this calm artificially, is a bit disturbing if it was directed at the people. Which I strongly suspect it was.

However, do you think it would be possible to adjust this device to generate a more healthy sort of calm? With Sosyne's imbalance toward anger, perhaps we could use this device to help her. Though I ask this conservatively as I would want to make sure it is safe first and foremost, and would not infringe on anyone's will.

I eagerly await your thoughts on this.

That is wonderful news, Rebbeka. I will also inquire of Sosyne to make certain that she is all right with this.

Please keep me updated on your progress.

Message:
Greetings Rebbeka,

I just wanted to check in on the progress of the generator. I had a conversation with the other Arehtei representatives and there are some misgivings about its use. Though it was agreed that tests would be good.

Have you had a chance to do any tests with the device as a whole?

Also, I am making plans to go back to Baizho and excavate more of these generators. I believe there may have been at least two of them. If these machines turn out to be beneficial, I believe we will need them. Can you be prepared to receive them?

Regards,
Obi-Wan Kenobi
