You shut your compacuter. Might as well explain why you're here, while you're at it.
You're in a lowblood district, taking a detour to get to the green zone. You expected to run into trouble, but you know how to handle yourself.
You are a gortesan, after all.
==> Take his phone.
Whose phone? You don't see anyone around, though you did hear something...
==> Be Cedras.
You are now Cedras and about to pull your mace back out because maybe there are more thugs.
You stop when you realize it's a highblood.
She raises a hand at you.
Well hello there, ma'am. Are you here to get a piece like them, or do you need my services?
I've no desire for a fight. Nor does it appear I'd go unscathed if I did.
Are you lost?
No, I was just on my way hive and taking a detour through this district.
Just happened on some trouble, as you can see.
Not too much to handle, it appears.
The newcomer walks over to the pile of unconscious thugs. One is dead.
No, I've certainly taken on bigger and more experienced than them.
They'll bring more if not properly attended to.
Best we keep this between us, I think.
What was that you just did there?
You raise your eyebrows.
Well, that's certainly some talent you have there, Miss..?
And you, miss?
Well, I've had more people ask for my name tonight than in a long time. I'm Cedras Maenad.
Pleased to make your acquaintance.
Do thugs regularly inquire as to your identity before attempting to mug you?
And no, they usually just take a look at me before trying me on.
Comes with the profession, I suppose.
One must learn to protect themselves, as I see.
Indeed. So, Miss Murmax, what brings you to this part of town?
You seem like you should be more where I spend my days.
I'm not much for the highblood courts, myself.
Too much of a wandering soul, I suppose.
I'm looking for someone. Multiple someones, actually.
Oh? Well, I've known quite a few someones in my time. Perhaps I could help you?
One is a goldblood. Usually seen in a legislacerator's uniform. Rather hard to miss if you have met him.
Goldblood, hm? Can't say I've had the pleasure of knowing many legislacerators, they're usually too busy with their work.
I'm afraid I don't know this one.
Can't say this one would be much different.
There's also an indigo-blood. Young, a bit of a vagabond.
Makes woof noises when he's nervous? Kind of cute, too?
Yes, a bit canine in nature. Almost like a houselusus, really.
Why yes, I just met him earlier tonight.
Yes, he said his name is... though now that I think about it, he may have actually been a girl. Either way, their name was Evelsn.
Yes, that's the one.
Why're you looking for a young troll like them?
The people I'm looking for possess a unique set of skills.
They all may be rather unimpressive at first glance, but they have their capabilities.
... not unlike yourself, if I may say.
Well, thank you for the compliment, Orthas.
Do you need some way to get in contact with the pup?
It would be quite appreciated, yes. Also where did you last see them?
His trolltag is curiousCanid, and I think I ran into him somewhere in one of the neutral zones.
Thank you, Cedras.
What's your trolltag, if I might ask? I might run into this goldblood of yours in the future.
She reaches into her coat and withdraws a gold caeger.
I was just about to ask for yours, for the same reason.
This is all unofficial, so contact me at axioAnarchist.
Fair enough for me. Unofficial works best for me and my coworkers. I'm on twirlingBacchant.
And this is for your time.
You catch the coin she flips your way.
Since I've taken your attentions and time away from your work it is only fair that some compensation is in order.
Thank you for being so thoughtful. Most people don't give me money for such things.
You're quite welcome.
I should attempt to pursue the lead I have before the trail grows too cold, but I do trust we'll meet again.
I hope we cross paths soon. You're quite the pleasant person to talk to, and it's not often a highblood comes to me just to talk.
And you likewise.
Do be careful in the rest of your journey home.
Pickpockets and thugs may be the least of your worries. There's word of some wild beast loose in the streets.
I suppose its someone's lusus gone rabid.
Oh, that does sound dreadful. I'll keep an eye out, then.
Farewell, Miss Maenad.
She gives a slight wave and leaves.
You nod back and decide to leave as well.
==> Recall what happened to you. Also, find a safer place to sleep.
You weren't sleeping!
You were just caught up in some color gang violence, nothing new. You were going through a blue district when the highblood "Bloodist" gang rolled in, looking to beat up some bluebloods. Apparently, you were blue enough to qualify.
You passed out after they beat you up, but thanks to your lowblood body, you've already healed quite a bit.
Although some of you still really sorta kinda hurts.
==>Check out the sky.
You can't see a lot of the stars because of all the lights coming from the city, but you can see the moon.
You stare at the moon for a while. It's a really nice moon tonight.
mustnothowlmustnothowlmustnothow- oh, forget it.
Aw hell, what if someone heard that?
>Covertly and secretly GTFO.
> Deploy woofbeast to run with you.
Adventures I am advertising but are not mine.
After your scramble, you stopped for a bit to clean yourself up so that you wouldn't get into any more trouble.
In the goldblood district, anyone with any reason to be thought of as suspicious ends up having a nice little "talk" with the legislacerators, and you've had enough beatings for one day.
You wander down a minor road, passing a small shop with a glass storefront.
Suddenly, the corgi barks and runs off into an alleyway. You've got a bad feeling about this, but you'd rather not lose the corgi. You turn the corner.
>Greet your lusus???
