    Noble arrangements [job]

    Post by Eris on 23rd August 2015, 3:46 pm

    Spoiler:

    Job Title: The Fourth Musketeer

    Rank: C

    Player Requirements: C-Ranked Wizard(s) or Two D-Ranked Wizards. Light Guild / Alignment ONLY. No Wizard above C-Rank will receive the bonus XP reward. 

    Job Requirements: Thread must be 30 posts long. 250 Words per post. Must Defeat at Least Three Groups of Enemies and the Boss. After defeating three groups of enemies "STEALTH" becomes optional, and you may keep rolling; and avoiding the enemies that appear by hiding and using espionage within Townsend Mansion until the Boss appears. 

    Job Location: Earthland (Minstrel), LeBuque Town

    Job Description: 'Musketeers' that's what wizards are called in Minstrel. Charged with keeping the peace in the entire nation, the Musketeers are an ancient organization that accept only wizards into their Ranks. Unlike Fiore; they do not have an organization charged with keeping their Musketeers in check; rather, the Musketeers, protect the civilians of Minstrel and are the official lawkeepers of the nation. 

    However, there is trouble afoot in the elegant town of Lebuque. It seems; some Dark Wizards from Fiore have managed to break into the house of one of the most famous nobles in all of Minstrel. Sir Townsend. They have taken him, and his entire family hostage; and have laid demands of 1 million jewels down or it will mean their death. 

    The Musketeers are all to familiar with Dark Wizards, but felt it was best to contact the Guilds of Fiore for help against their own natives. 

    Your mission is simple; infiltrate the Mansion and free the Townsend family from the grasp of the Dark Wizards from Fiore. 

    The Musketeers have assigned three of their very finest Musketeers to make sure it goes smoothly. 

    Their names are Atha, Atma, and Portha. Blonde, Red-Head, and Brunette; respectively. These girls are REAL lookers; but don't let that fool you. All of them are extremely skilled wizards, fem fatales; and use both Gun Magic and Sword Magic at levels that far exceed this Jobs requirements. 

    However, they are personal friends of Sir Townsend and his family; and will stop at nothing to help you free him. 

    Meet up with the Three Musketeers at the location that the Musketeers organization has told you they'll be waiting for you. 

    Enemies:

    Weak: Wind-Make Wizard x2 - Goes down in one hit of C-Ranked damage, or two hits of D-Ranked damage. Will target Lightning, Water, and Projectile Users first.  

    Normal: Earth-Make Wizard x2 - Goes down in two hits of C-Ranked damage, or four hits of D-Ranked damage. Will target Water and Wind type opponents first. 

    Strong: Summoner Wizard x2 - Goes down in four hits of C-Ranked damage. Or eight hits of D-Ranked damage. Will target Darkness or Light type opponents first.  

    Boss: Teleportation Wizard - Goes down in 10 hits of C-Ranked damage. Or twenty hits of D-Ranked damage. Will avoid anything less than a C-Ranked attack with an instant teleport without even trying. Will teleport behind you and attempt to use melee (hands and feet) strikes in combination with his teleportaton magics. Also may grab an item and warp it above your head to fall on you; or other tricky surprises. 

    Reward: A Green "Musketeer" outfit to wear when you're in Minstrel, showing that you are always welcome in Minstrel and are considered an official wizard there, just like you are in Fiore. 15k Jewels. Equivalent EXP of THREE Jobs of your Rank. May only complete this Job once.

    Minstrel,  LeBuque Town Outskirts.  2AM, Night. 
    Townsend Mansion.



    The night was quiet in the sleeping town of LeBuque when shadowy figures came to a stop at the edge of the trees surrounding the Townsend Mansion as if waiting for something.  Silently watching as small bulges in the ground rose and out from which more shadowy figures rose behind the red-clad guardsmen and wrapping their around their heads, silencing them.  The bodies dropped in a muffled silence as the figures disappeared back into the ground with the bodies in tow.


    With their way clear,  the figures from the clearing dashed forward as silent blurs with a subtle gust to their step,  their feet making contact with the mansion walls and continuing their dash upwards along the walls with winds trailing at their heels.    The intruders paused, still against window sills and atop the roof.  A faint wind picking up and rustling the trees beyond the clearing as the moon faintly illuminated them.    And on the breeze carried a message.  Go.


    The invaders rushed through the windows with ease in pairs,  as though they opened of their own accord at their desire to enter.   Within,  only faint scuffling could be heard as guards, servants, and sleeping individuals were all silenced. Gagged. Tied,  and carried through the air behind them on cushions of air.  Making their way through the manor in trained unison sweeping the mansion of of life.


    In minutes,  there was one room left.  The master bedroom,  Townsend himself.   An intruder taller than the rest stood at his doors,  and in a visual distortion vanished.   The same appeared at the Nobleman's bed side,  the man's wife sleeping next to him.  Unawares of the danger.   The intruder placed a hand on the noble,  the two of them vanishing to the far end of the large room in a stone chair, another of the intruders behind it.  As the noble man made contact with the chair the intruder behind him made a fist and bands of stone wrapped around the man as he fumbled awake in confusion.

    The Black Sun:





    The wind, full of vigor and strength, brushing through Ardere's fluffy brown hair. Taking in a deep breath, a heavy sigh was let out. It was a cool night, not one he found himself often enjoying, let alone high in the skies. The fire mage was above Minstrel, a country to the slight southeast of Fiore. Normally he would not be alone in another country, but unfortunately duty called. He had been summoned to Midi, the country just below Minstrel, for a mission of sorts. The sense of nostalgia coursed through his body just at the mention of his home land's name. Unfortunately however, the mission did not sound like a fun one. It involved something long forgotten, in the dark abyss of his past. The more important thought on his mind, was the fact that he needed to refuel. Tapping the console, a pale hand ran across the back of his neck, rubbing it as another sigh was let out. It seemed he would have to refuel in the nearest town.

    Running his hands over to the navigation console, he found himself in a bit of a stroke of luck. The mage was close to a town known as LeBuque. It was actually a town he was familiar with, as the bottom of his feet were quite familiar with the landscape of Minstrel. Traveling throughout the country, he had made a few friends. I sure as hell hope Jacque is still in town. Taking a deep breath, he would slowly descend. The large wooden ship slowing down from it's flight, almost ready to land. The paper white sails still flapping in the wind, he found it strange to see the clouds so close. While as one of the up and coming mages in Fiore, aside from his fire magic he was quite well known for the ship that he commanded. It was not a battle ship, but it was equipped with quite the technology, and bore the symbol of both the Kasai clan and Sabertooth. Descending slowly towards the town, he heard the hum of his engines decrease.

    Townsend sat still in the stone chair unable to move in the slightest at the stone bindings that anchored him to the rocky throne in which he was held hostage.   Unable to move, but his eyes betrayed his horror as the invaders bound his wife to a similar chair,  not saying a word or giving any motives.  No reason to this invasion as his wife kicked and screamed through her gags as the invaders took extra care in seeing to it she was... comfortable.   

    His eyes were pleading for them to stop with the sound of tearing fabric.  Why.  They said nothing.  No ransom,  no victory speeches or threats,   only the the light of the fireplace casting the shadows that reflected their misdoings in a sinister elongated fashion up the wall.     They did not muffle her so handedly as they had him,  cries weighing down his heart even as his eyes closed to shut out the world.

    "Why my lord, don't close your eyes so soon. The fun is only starting!"  His eyes burned as stoney claws emerged from the bindings to spread his eyelids apart,   tiny points digging in slightly to the tender eyes themselves keeping them looking straight onward,   incapable now of the slightest movement save for the clenching of his fingers on the armrest while cruel captors laughed merrily as though this were just the fun part of their job. 


    In the mean time,  a woman with black hair and two short little horns sat in Townsend's office reclining in his high backed leather chair and flipping through book after book,  shuffling through papers and folders.  Golden eyes capturing the contents of each page at a glance,  burning through months of projects and paperwork in minutes,  searching.  Searching for clues,  to references,  locations.   Information.  She needed information,  but where was it.

    First the leaves would scatter, then the ground would rumble and shake as the Black Sun made it's landing at the air strip. Fortunately for the Fioran, air strips ran throughout the night, for all flights. It was not often that the people of Minstrel witnessed a ship with a design such as the one owned and ran by Ardere, though the people waving him in seemed to be excited. Perhaps they noticed the guild insignia, or the design of the ship as not native to any particular country, very diverse in it's design. With a loud rumble, the ship would then go silent, the purr of the engine slowing down to a halt. The only thing the men working at the air strip would see, was a red cloak landing in front of them. The men seemed a bit excited and scared at the same time, as if they were witnessing something they had only heard about. Ardere Kasai. Yellow eyes met the fire mage's orange eyes, and only a smile was exchanged from the two. Jacque my man, still working in this dump are we? The brown haired mage let out a smile, which would receive only a laugh from the yellow eyes man who bore a black beard. The two man walked towards each other, and shook hands, which quickly turned into a friendly hug. Ardere could not help but be happy to see an old friend, especially one like Jacque.

    What the hell are you doing out here? The man from Minstrel would pose the question, and the god slayer could not help but note how thick his accent was, as it always had been. Running a pale hand through his thick brown hair, Ardere chuckled a bit. Actually, I'm on my way to the home land. I was passing through and needed a refuel, sorry to catch you guys so late. While the bearded man was talking with the Fioran, the men working at the airstrip were too distracted by the ship, observing every piece they could get to. Oh it's no problem, I'll fill you up with no charge, for old times sake. Evadez-vous de cela et de retour au travail! (Get away from there and back to work) The yellow eyed man yelled at his men, with the guild mage standing there. Well, there's a coffee shop that is still open down the street. Go grab and cup and we'll get you filled up, enjoy yourself, it's Minstrel! Come back with a cup for me to, we'll catch up! Letting out another laugh, the red cloak would flap slightly in the wind. Sure thing Jaqcue, I'll cover it. Be careful with her, she's just been upgraded. Looking back up to his ship, he hoped that they did not wake his phoenix, Celica. She was the type to enjoy her beauty sleep, and he respected that. But for now, getting to that coffee shop was the top priority.

    Drawers and cabinets lay open with their contents spilled onto the floor with the black haired woman standing in front of one large book case with four books set in the air before her all flipping their pages while her golden eyes darted over their pages.    In the half hour she had been in this room she suspected she knew more about the nobleman's life than any other but himself,  perhaps even then knowing more than he here and there as she gleaned his persona and characteristics from his writings and the notes he left.  The way certain pages were folded or crinkled from use on certain subjects or in certain books.     


    As one book reaches it's last page it shuts and falls to the ground to be replaced by another from the emptying shelves.  The majority of all the books lay strewn about on the floor,  along with many stacks of documents and folders.  So far she had significant insight into Minstrel politics and noble affairs along with many business transactions.  By prying this deep into Townsend's private and official life she gained a spiderweb of information spiraling out to effect dozens of other noble families of the country and the Musketeer elite.  


    As the minutes past the last book finally fell to the ground,  the office walls and storage spaces barren with stacks all about the ground.  She had exhausted all the information present and what she had read only reinforced her belief that Townsend had what she sought.  But it didn't provide anything helpful.   She hoped she would,  but life wasn't so easy.   With a snap of her fingers she raised her hand and a man appeared in a ripple of space.


    "Tell your men to secure the hostages and tear this place apart.   I want everything inch of this place examined thoroughly for any hidden compartments, rooms or passages.   Any book, box, scrolls or similar objects are to be brought to this room."   With a short wave of her hand the man rippled away to see to the matter of spreading the command.   In the mean time,  Siren would pay the Noble a visit herself,  veiled in disguise as she was.

    Foot steps sounded through the hall, as Ardere exited the air strip, and made his way out into the streets. Minstrel was a beautiful town, different than his home but still grand. Each building had an elegant style that was not often found in every town, at least not in the abundance found here. Sliding his pale hands into his pants pockets, the fire mage took a deep breath of night air. With only the street lamps, and very few building lights to guide his way. Strangely enough, even if he had been back home he would have been up this late. It would not be a stretch to say he was a "Night Owl", or one that tended to stay active throughout the night. Fortunately for the town, this Night Owl could keep his cool and not make a ruckus at the time of night it happened to be.

    He was unsure of exactly where to go, and he didn't speak very much of the language in Minstrel, but he knew enough to figure out what a coffee shop sign was. Jacque was right, they were open this late. It seemed they were going to close soon, but he was lucky to catch them. Entering the coffee shop, it was a nice little place. With a fair size, and dark brown wood floors, he admired the architecture. The aroma of pastries and coffee hit his nose like a train hitting a brick wall, but in a much more pleasant manner. Hi, I'd like two cups of coffee please. To go. The man nodded, seeming to understand what he said. Ah, it's always nice to see someone from Fiore come in. It happens more often than you think, I'll have your coffee ready in just a moment monsieur. The man, looking to be in his early fifties, went to prepare the coffee. Ardere tapped his feet against the floor, waited for his return. Checking his wallet, he began sorting through his international bills. He hated how unorganized he could be, but he was able to find some of the left over money he had from his travels in Minstrel. If he remembered the conversion rates correctly, he had enough. Paying the man, he accepted the two cups of coffee, taking in their rich scent.

    When Siren entered the room she found her... employees,  hard at work demoralizing the noble.   She raised an eyebrow at the scene with a slight tilt of her head at the unclothed bodies tangled up in each other and the pained cries of their victim.  The stone chair had been abandoned and cast aside to move their abuse to the shaggy carpet of the bedroom in a violent display.  She stood in pause before she clapped twice.

    "Enough." She said harshly and the men came to their wits and stumbled with their state of dress,  startled and intimidated.   Walking forward, the men stepped back further from her as she knelt beside the woman and stroked her cheek with the back of a finger,  brushing away a tear while the woman looked shell-shocked staring towards her husband,  who looked equally furious and full of sorrow. 

    With care Siren eased the woman up into the stone chair, a short gesture of her hand making the hard surface soft and cushion-like.   With a flick the stone gags on the nobleman across from her crumbled away like ash on the wind.   Her arms wrapped around the bare woman,  bringing a silken sheet around her for modesty's sake as she seemed to hug her,  her cheek pressed against hers.    A sense of confusion from the two at the sudden humanity in the situation,  yet they were still bound. 

    "What do you want from us" Townsend said wearily as Siren's golden eyes glimmered like pools of molten gold while a smile grew on her lips as though he'd asked the right question.

    Ardere stepped back out into the fresh night air, and into the gorgeous streets of the town. Clutching the two cups of coffee, making sure he didn't squeeze them too hard or drop them. He began to make his way back towards the air strip, finding no one in his way. It was nice, to experience a foreign town this late. The sky was full of stars, and the town seemed to have a nice silence to it. Serenity, was the best way he could describe it. Though he did not want to spend too much time dilly dallying, thus he hurried to the air strip. Waiting outside of the main office, was the black bearded man Jacque. Smoke trailing from the cigarette in his mouth, he greeted the fire mage once again. Ah, many thanks friend. Handing the man his coffee, the brown haired mage stood next to his old friend. Two men, standing in front of the office with their coffee at around two in the morning. It felt just like old times.

    Being offered a cigarette, with a hand gesture, Ardere shook his head to turn it down. Taking a sip of the warm coffee, he stared off into the night sky. So how have you been, Jacque? The man just laughed, smoke coming from his mouth. Same as always, dealing with those lazy bastards. How about you Ardere? Last thing you wrote me was you joined that Sabertooth guild. What you need in your life is a lady my friend. Smirking a bit, he took another sip of his coffee. Already got one. A slight loud cackle was let out from the other man. You didn't mention that in your letter! You always were the private one. What's she like eh? Adjusting the straps on his red and white blade, which was wrapped in cloth, the fire mage answered. She's probably even smarter than I am. Actually she's probably more of a smart-ass than I am as well. She's got green hair and she makes me talk more than I normally wish to. But as for Sabertooth, I find the guild suits me more than the Rune Knights did. Sighing smoke, the man nodded. Treat her well then, and I never really pegged you as a man of the law. You always fight for what's right, but you do it on your own accord. That's what I always liked about you. Prompting a smile from the god slayer, he had shot through half of his coffee already.

    Taking her time to answer the question Siren lifted the woman's chin up to look at her, a finger under her chin.   She was so dazed and out of focus as she trembled,  but her touch relaxed her.   Siren kissed her forehead and the woman's eyes widened as a shudder passed through her body at Siren's kiss and suddenly she took a deep breath,  relaxed.  Smiling faintly even she seemed stilled while Siren took her place behind her to whisper in her ear,  eyes trained on the nobleman seated across from them and speaking loud enough he could hear. 


    "-Everything will be alright now.   All your husband has to do is give us the information we need...-" She gently stroked her neck as she spoke in the woman's native language,  causing her head to tilt to a side while narrow eyes stared at her husband with a bit of hopeful expectation as a blush formed on her cheeks enjoying just the simple touch of the pleasure devil at her side and Siren was more than happy to keep her in this state.


    The man's eyes were wide but confused.  As he stammered something along the lines of 'what',  Siren cut him off with her words. "Two things.  The Grand Lacrima you unearthed in your excavation efforts.  I need to know where you sent it.   I need names and dates.   Secondly,  I know you have seven pages in your possession from a certain Book of the Endless." Siren's hand came to a rest ominously at the throat of the mans wife, longish nails gently scratching the skin as though she were petting a cat while her other hand was still wrapped around her waist from her position behind the chair.

    Ardere exhaled deeply, his breath warm from the coffee. Standing next to Jaqcue, the two men were silent for a few moments, just examining the stars for a moment. It was not often that they could experience a night like this, thus he would cherish the moment while it lasted. Turning back to Jacque, who was putting out his cigarette, the man spoke. I'll have your ship filled up in no time, you should probably look into staying for the night. Just in case. The fire mage took a large sip of his coffee, and nodded. If it comes to it, I'll just sleep in the ship. Don't worry about me. Running pale fingers through his thick brown hair, the bearded man laughed. You always give me reason to worry. I'll be back shortly. The man would tip his hat to the Fioran, which would be returned with a slight bow. Then he would walk back into the office, towards the airstrip. Ardere chose to stay outside, and admire the city just a bit more.

    Standing there for a moment, he noticed a rather large building a couple blocks down. He could only see the tops of it, but it seemed almost like a large estate. From what he knew about this town, or at least from his last visit was that nobles either came through here, or had a home here. It had been a little while since he had been here, but it seemed he did remember a bit more than he had anticipated. After years of reading and studying, he made it a note to know a little bit about the places he traveled to. Finishing off his coffee, Ardere tossed it into a nearby trash bin. Wiping his hands, he slid them into his pockets. Hearing foot steps, a bit of adrenaline shot through his body. But as he turned to their source, a sigh of relief was let out. It appeared to be some people who were just out late, normal townsfolk. I'm too on edge. Rubbing his head a bit, the brown haired mage went back inside, for he needed to get some rest. Hopefully the men hadn't been screwing around with his ship too much, being awake this late wasn't good for him.

    Townsend's expression went from confusion and worry to one of a cold understanding and a taste of regret.  He knew what Siren wanted and his mind was quickly coming up with reasons and motivations behind her seeking these items out.  But it would change nothing.  Regardless of her motives she was here and he and everyone among his residence was at her mercy.



    His jaw was set in resistance,  teeth grinding in hate for her and the other captors and the decisions to be made.  What harm could it do?  Siren whispered in his mind.  Compared to losing everything in one night.   His expression faltered and he looked back up to Siren and his wife.  There was regret heavy in his heart as he looked at her,   Siren's nail slid slowly across her throat leaving a thin trail of blood only an inch long until he panicked.


    "Alright!"  He shouted.  "Alright.   The lacrima you want,   I had an offer.  The royal family of Pergrande sent their first prince himself with an offer I couldn't refuse.  I sold it to them weeks ago now.   It should have made land just days ago.  If you want it,  I imagine it would be on the road to their capital."   Siren's hand stopped and wiped away the bit of blood,  the woman seemed to be enjoying it more than anything.  Dazed and lost in a fog, over exposed to Siren's touch.  


    Standing up straight she rested both hands on the woman's shoulders watching Townsend.   "I'm going to need more information than that."  She said.  


    _____________________




    Hours passed as the night moved on and Siren held only five of the seven pages.  Two were missing,  meanwhile the sun was rising through the window as dawn broke.  The interrogation went smoothly enough,  but after removing one of his own fingers and his wife's arm from just above the elbow down,  she had determined Townsend had indeed lost the missing two.   Leaving Townsend a half-conscious mess cradling his wife's arm while she appeared to be dead,  she went to the office to search for the missing pages in the things she had requested the crew bring to the room.


    There was a ripple in the air behind her but she didn't stop to look at it as a man appeared. "Mistress.  The town guard have become alerted and have called in the Musketeers.   They are forming a perimeter around the grounds and are waiting for something."  Siren sighed.  She had hoped to be out of here by now.  She made a mental note to find an Archive mage or a diviner of some sort to help find things next time.  She rubbed her temple and considered the predicament.  
    "Tell the men to be on guard and secure the building,  keep at least four mages with the hostages at all times"  She said while pen and paper lifted off the desk behind her,  writing something down in all-caps with varied handwriting.   "Deliver a ransom to delay their push."   1 million jewels should keep them preoccupied.  It wasn't an exorbitant amount of jewels, especially weighed against Townsend's life.  She suspected she could have gotten away with at least a hundred million or far more if she leveraged his life with the right people at the right time.  But 1 million was still enough to delay the Musketeers while considering whether not to actually pay up.


    They should know as well as her however,  that ransom or no ransom things could go south in an instant.    The man rippled away with her message while she considered her options.   The ransom note threatened the lives of twenty six people.  The guards,  the servants,  a few relatives and much of Townsend's immediate family along with the nobleman himself of course.     Her ransom note gave them until 3PM to hand over the jewels.  Hopefully they'd be long gone by then with the pages in hand.

    Waking up to some footsteps in his ship, a loud groan was let out as Ardere sat up. Shirtless with his pale physique exposed, he rubbed the back of his neck. Damn I slept rou- Opening his eyes to a sword pointed at him, he sighed. You're coming with me. Go for your sword and this'll be the last night you spend on this boat pretty boy. Pretty boy? He wasn't sure who the hell this woman was, but she was blonde, and appeared to be in some sort of uniform. If he was correct, it was a Musketeer uniform. The only way a musketeer would be out here, was if some crime was committed. It was likely a big misunderstanding, but it was in the fire mage's best interest to do as she said. Get dressed. Letting out another sigh, he slowly stood up and slid on his red jacket. Now realizing she was actually a tall woman, with a good figure, she must be someone experienced in combat. Wrapping the bandanna through his brown hair, the blonde woman confiscated his sword. Hearing squawking, he went to move but met the tip of a sword just barely touching his chest. Where's my phoenix? The tip of the sword fell, and the woman motioned for him to follow her. As he stepped down to the ground, he saw two other women, one of which was holding his bird. Her beak was wrapped up so she could not speak, which made Ardere grit his teeth in anger. Come with us, we have some questions to ask you.

    ~Ten minutes later~

    The three women had taken him to some sort of office, almost like a Rune Knight office. He was sitting in a chair, with magic nullifying handcuffs, and his bird in a cage next to him. The fire mage had an irritated look on his face, which was not easy to achieve. But after a few minuted, the blonde woman would re-enter. What do you want with Sir Townsend? Arching a brow, he recognized that as a noble name. Nothing, I came to Minstrel to refuel. The woman slid close to him, with an intimidating look on her face. Don't play dumb with me, do you think it's a coincidence that some foreign ship lands in the town just as the Sir is taken hostage? Lives were taken, so don't play with me. Looking genuinely confused, Ardere slid back a bit. What the hell are you talking about? I've been at the air strip all night, ask Jacque! She seemed to be confused, almost as if she got the sense that he was telling the truth. Lifting up his arm, he showed her his guild insignia, blood red on his forearm. I'm from a guild called Sabertooth, if you know anything about Fiore, you've heard of it. My name is Ardere Kasai. I used to be a Rune Knight as well. The woman looked surprised at the guild mark, and quickly rushed back out of the room. After a few minutes, all three of the women walked back into the room, eyes narrowed on to him with a hint of curiosity. I looked you up, and my commander says your guild is legitimate. I've heard of the Rune Knights, you might be of use actually. So, Monsieur Kasai. Would you like to lend us a hand in saving a noble? Chuckling a bit at how ridiculous of a situation he seemed to have gotten himself into, he responded promptly. Of course. Though I'm going to need more details than that.

    Siren combed through the various chests and stacks of books the mages brought to her almost as fast as they could supply it,  having already filled the office more than halfway full, form the ground all the way up to the ceiling, taking up the far side of the room from the door with stacks of books and boxes as most everything not bolted down was brought to her.  Furniture that may house secret compartments,  dressers,  drawers,  locked cabinets,  everything.   It was all piled high and tightly packed into the large office space.


    Even she searched her mind's eye was full of the scene outside,  a large 3-dimensional map in her head.  The house itself was mostly a dark spot in her vision,  the mansion was almost entirely composed of wood,  but she could see the scene from the earth's perspective as her earth mages erected walls and outright battlements,   entrenching them in as though preparing for war.   The lavish mansion itself had been shelled in with thick stone slabs mirroring its appearance but making it look larger and as though carved out of one block.   Whenever the mages sought to move through,  they simply parted the stone before them with their magics.


    This fragile wooden luxury home had become a fortress.  The wind mages on the other hand were providing cover support taking out aerial scouts that they attempted to use to pry.  Siren wasn't personally concerned with matters at hand.  She could tell there were several blindspots in the defenses and in her own vision,  such as the cistern and sewage system below the house,  with the many metal mines and refineries in the region it was cheaper to use iron and steel rather than stone for their sewage along with all the pipework already needed anyway,  while the well could be a source of trouble as well,  attached to underground water ways,  and the earth mages had only walled the estate in while the wind mages were incapable of forming an actual dome or barrier to seal the deal.    There was no threat to her anyhow,  she only wanted to retrieve the last pages before things escalated too far.   She'd rather not go out of her way to cause unnecessary destruction of lives or property.  She was here for a purpose,  that was it.   


    Besides.   She had tea scheduled with Lord Townsend in...  four hours now.

    Ardere was uncuffed, and the other two women would enter the room. It seems all three of the woman were musketeers, attractive women too, but if his assumption was correct then they were quite fierce. The blonde woman would pull out a map of the estate, and it seemed that there were some markings on it. Well, their defenses are fairly tight, and every aerial scout we've sent has been taken out. The places is sealed off, and even if we could get in by air, they'd see us coming. For a couple of minutes, he stared at the map, thinking. There had to be a way to get in without being seen, perhaps some sort of cloaking magic. From what he knew the musketeers were high in number, they must have someone with such a skill. I assume out of the many musketeers you've got, at least one of them has to have the ability to cloak things. Like invisibility. Nodding, the woman would look at him eye to eye. That we do. Folding his arms, he peered up at the three standing before him. We'll take my ship then, if you don't mind. It seemed that had a plan, albeit a dangerous plan but one nonetheless.

    After retrieving his items, and freeing his phoenix, the fire mage led the women and the cloaking mage to the air strip. Barging in, without any greetings he went straight to his old friend. Jacque, is the ship ready? The bearded man sipped some of his coffee and stood up. Oui monsieur, we made our last checks on her. I made sure none of the men messed with her. But what are you- Then he would notice the three women, and tipped his hat. He presumably found them attractive, which was not incorrect. Ardere had known Jacque to easily be distracted by women, so he was not surprised.Unfortunately, we don't have much time for chit chat old friend. We're on a mission, I'll be back soon to refuel again. Barging past the man, he and the three women made it towards the air ship. The Black Sun did not seem to have been harmed in any way, which meant their journey should go smoothly, hopefully. As they made their way onto the ship, the men near it would clear the airstrip. Rushing over to the consoles, he started the ship up. After a few minutes of preparation, he began the take off. Not saying much, the engine made a loud engine revving sound as it ascended. Feeling the wind blow in his face a bit, the brown haired mage took a deep breath, and they were on their way. Soaring through the air, and towards the estate.

    Setting the ship to auto pilot, the flick of a button was heard as the ship now began to pilot itself for the time being. Walking onto the main deck, he re-sheathed his blade and tightened the straps. Celica was downstairs during the whole debacle, probably catching up on her beauty sleep. Once we get closer to the estate, I'm going to need the ship to be cloaked. I'm assuming you could do the same for the rest of us right? The man nodded, seemingly understanding the situation. We're gonna repel down one of the ropes I have. As much as I'd like to park the ship on the roof, they'd notice the sound. So I'll keep her parked above the estate, as low as I can keep her in terms of noise. The women appeared to be sharpening their swords, but listening intently to what he said. As long as we save Sir Townsend, that's all that matters. Biting the side of his cheek a bit, Ardere had to agree. He hated getting wrapped up in messes like these, but he couldn't stand back and watch as people were being held for ransom. He believed in fate, and they had lucked out that he just so happened to be stopping through when this happened.

    The morning was progressing smoothly enough so far,  the Musketeers had yet to try anything.   She could see the occasional warning shot fired off from one of her earth mages when the town guard would get too close to the fortifications,  mostly harmless seismic spells.    The search, however,  was no closer to finding the missing pages.  


    Frustration welled up within her though she remained calm.   Any longer and people were going to have to get hurt.  Outside of the obvious.   Impulse begged her to just put the entire place to a blaze,  damn the hostages,  damn her mages.  Burn the whole mess down.  The pages would remain untarnished,  or at worse everything would end up in hell where she could comb over everything at a leisurely pace.


    That option was starting to sound more tempting as Siren threw the last box roughly into the now packed office room and slammed the door behind her.   A scowl on her face making her eyes glimmer in the dim lighting of the hallway.    All the windows were sealed so the only illumination came from candles and early integration of electric lighting that was starting to make its rounds through Minstrel.




    The pages weren't in any of the stuff delivered to the office.   She was going to have to roam the manor itself and search for hidden compartments personally.  A procedure that would have been easy if only the house were made of stone or were it all a ground floor.   But.  A wall safe wouldn't be so forgettable.     She started to doubt Townsend's claims.    Throwing open the door to the master bedroom Siren lifted the nobleman off his wife by his hair and tossed him back into the stone chair, a slight gesture of a finger causing stone spikes to impale his shoulders, hands,  and feet making him shout in agony as she picked his wife up off the ground,   fires blazed in her free hand.


    "I don't think you've been entirely truthful with me,  my lord."   Her hand pressed against the woman's bare skin,  over her belly.  Flesh sizzled and blackened and the woman's deathly sleep crumbled away as her eyes fluttered open to a world of pain once far greater than before.  "I'm going to ask again.  Where. Are.  The pages." She kept her tone leveled but her voice reverberated through the chamber as the thick stone walls and her words were slow and forceful.    The room darkened and the lights failed or were snuffed out,  leaving only the dark flames at her hand to illuminate the three with harsh shadows,   her aura was thick and bled through the stone for any to sense.   An aura that tasted of death and shook the land,  tremors echoing for miles through the peaceful town sounding ominously in the air.

    Stepping back into the console room, Ardere folded his arms, gazing down at the holographic navigation system. Pondering how exactly this should pan out, he noticed they were getting closer to their destination. Poking a head out the door, he made a quickly hand motion. Start the cloaking, we're almost within range. Watching for a moment, as the musketeer began to channel his energy, then expand it around the ship. It was almost as if a veil of energy was placed around the Black Sun. To them, it would just look like a bubble of glass was surrounding them, but to the people outside, it would seem like nothing was there at all. Taking in some of the sweet Minstrel air, the fire mage tapped his foot. The cloaking field should last about half an hour or so, so we don't have too long. The one that will be placed on us individually will probably only last until we hit the roof. Nodding, he pulled out a small flask. It seemed they were going to have to be quick, which meant every second counted. Taking a sip of the warm liquid within the flask, he exhaled harshly. They were getting closer to the estate every second, and soon they would arrive.

    After just a few minutes, they had journeyed across town, and onto the grounds of the estate. From what he could tell, it had been walled in by earth presumably by earth mages of course. But he did notice that there were mages on the roof, if they were attacked that soon the hostages would be put in immediate danger. Directing the ship over the estate, he parked it in the air, high enough so the engine sounds would not be as impeding. Turning the engine low, he kept it on as such. The activated auto pilot could keep the ship in place until the fuel ran out, but that would not be a concern. Stepping back out onto the deck, he tied off a rope to the side of the ship. We'll repel down onto the roof, and bust into it as quickly as we can without being spotted by those guys on the roof. Handing the rope to the man, he would turn it invisible just as Ardere dropped it, so he could make sure that it landed in the correct spot. One at a time. Putting on the repel clip, and tying it off to his belt, he took a deep breath. It never ends, he thought.

    Allowing the man to touch him, he would be cloaked in a veil of invisibility the same as the ship. Repelling down the rope, he slid down towards roof, at a spot between where the guards were posted. One after the other, each mage would slide down. They left the man with cloaking abilities with the ship, just in case anything went wrong. Though he was quite sure Celica would deal with any possible intruders, being as territorial as she was. Landing down on the roof, their veil of invisibility would wear off in moments, prompting them to quickly enter the house. Seeming hesitant, the red headed musketeer sliced open the roof, creating a hole for them all to drop into. All four rushing into the room, but unfortunately for them it seemed they were not alone. He could hear a group of footsteps walking, as the inside door to the room whipped open. It seemed he could never get a break in times like these.

    Townsend was an incredibly intelligent and cunning man.   He wasn't one of the top nobles of all Minstrel for nothing.   He had delayed Siren for this long already.  He could only go so far however.  She could see through his deception now as he was confronted with it.  Defeat in his eyes as his wife came back to life before his eyes,  tormented.  The smell of burning flesh filling the room.   Siren's flames were made to torment.  The very fires of hell,  burning with pain far beyond the physical damage.


    Townsend, however,  was adamant.   Resolve formed inside him and Siren almost sighed in frustration.  He just resigned himself.   His eyes closed,  tears dripping, he made his choice.   "Go to hell." He said.   "I'll never hand those pages over to the likes of you." He spat before coughing blood and cringing in pain as another spike slowly emerged from the chair into his back with a forceful slow push directed by a beckoning gesture on Siren's part.


    Stopping before penetrating too deep and not about to kill the man,  Siren looked cold.   Dammit.  She thought. 


    "So be it." She said, before kissing the woman she had gripped.   Her burning hand trailing flames between her legs a stone spike shot up through the woman's body and up through her collar bones through her jaw and into her skull,  the spike growing the other direction as well to impale the ground and lift her off the floor as Siren stepped away.


    Unseen to Townsend however was the red hot finger that pushed its way through the back of her skull as a mercy strike at the same moment as her kiss,   ending her without further pain.   A touch of remorse toyed with her heart, like an annoying fly that wouldn't go away.   Townsend cried out at the scene,  lifting himself off the spikes of the chair and stumbling forward to crawl toward the body on weak limbs.    


    "Already been" She said coldly.

    Quickly unsheathing his blade, Ardere noticed how many enemies were upon him. There was perhaps an entire squad of them, several rushing from the other sides of the room, around to deal with the musketeers. But the men who came through the door in front of the Fioran, six men to be exact, focused their attention on the fire mage, seeming to take the offensive with no hesitation. He had no doubt they were told to kill on sight, and he would react in opposition to that. Only so many of them could fit through the door, so he would dash forward with increased speed. He was much too fast for them to make a proper counter attack, but chunks of earth were flung towards him, which he would slice right through. His blade slamming into the stomachs of two of the men, prompting a feeling of fear from the others. With his mage strength, even more so than the average mage of his rank, he easily knocked the two men aside with his blade, using a headbutt on one, and a punch on the other for added effect. They were sent into a wooden table, crushing it with not only their weight but the force behind it.

    Four men remained, summoning earth attacks to attack him. Quickly reacting to the men, who were a bit awe struck that their friends had been so easily disposed of, he called forth a shield of flames to block the attacks coming towards him. The barrier was large enough to both block the attacks, and blind the earth mages. Unfortunately for them, he could see through his own flames. Dashing to two of the men, and slamming his blade into their chests just as the flames dissipated, and spun his body around to perform a spinning kick which would send his heel across both of their faces to finish them off. These two men were flung just like the others, smacking against the wall with a rather large thud. It was quite the ruckus, probably alarming other guards, but he was sure they could deal with them as well. His main priority was tending to the family and the noble, though he had to make sure he didn't die getting there. Rolling to his left, he would dodge chunks of earth being flung towards him. Flipping up one of the tables near him, he would kick it at the two earth mages. As he expected, the table was nothing to them, and it was ripped to pieces. But it had given him a second to dash forward, putting their attention on the table, and slam the flat side of his blade into both of their faces, sending them tumbling across the floor. Looking at his clothes, they were slightly ripped up by chunks of earth that had just barely missed him. They were not strong mages, but they were a decent number. His main problem was trying to not blow up the house while fighting, luckily he had his trusty blade to rely on.

    "Already been" Siren said coldly.    After she had uttered this remark she placed her hand upon the man's head as he kneeled in front of the impaled body,  arms out stretched.   Stone seemed to roll off her body and encase him,  forming a shell around his body as though slowly petrifying him.  The purpose was two fold,  to keep him from doing anything stupid,  and in fact served to halt his bleeding.   


    Part of Siren considered that she had been too aggressive,  too rough.  But nothing was out of place quiet yet.   As the last of his body "Froze" over Siren could see four bodies land on the roof of the estate.   Musketeers,  she could tell,   and a fourth individual.  She watched one of the larger of the three women,  taller and more voluptuous,  carve through the stone shell her mages had formed over the estate before all three dropped out of her vision as they entered the wooden interior of the building.  


    She could still smell them however, and see the magic flowing from them in her minds eye as they took down mages on the inside.   It was time for Plan B,  though perhaps not quiet yet.   The Musketeers had made a move earlier than she would have expected but it was fortuitous timing.  She was done here anyway for now earlier than she had expected as well.   


    Rather than move into Plan B for the time being Siren wanted to make an impression.  Using a servants passage through the walls Siren closed in on the position of the Musketeers.

    Having finished off the enemies before him, Ardere rolled his neck back and forth, creating several popping sounds. Rather than sheathing his sword, the mage tightened his grip on the red and white blade. The estate was more than likely crawling with enemies, of which he would have to dispose of. The hardest part was restraining himself and not destroying the mansion, though he imagined at some point there was going to be a bit of major property damage. Letting out a slight sigh, he walked back into the other room with the three musketeers. The scenes was littered with bodies of mages, it seemed they tried to put up a fight, but the women were too much for them. His assumption had been that they were quite capable in terms of combat, and it seemed that he was correct. Let's get going, we need to figure out where the hostages are being held. Noticing that most of the furniture was gone, paintings were ripped, or spots were obvious that they were missing. It seemed that these guys went to town and had a friggin blast in here, taking whatever they wanted. He found it almost disgusting that they could show such blatant disregard for other's property, but they were criminals after all.

    The musketeers would sheath their blade, and cock their guns. They were ready for battle, and judging by the short work they had made of the men, it would not go well for the other side. Turning to what seemed to be a hall, he peered down it. There did not appear to be any enemies, but that could change quickly. Alright, the coast is clear. Taking his first few steps into the hallway, he could hear footsteps. Shit, he thought. The defenses in this place were unreal, either they really wanted that money or the noble had something they wanted. Though, perhaps that was just his paranoia, and they were rather professional criminals who liked to guard all of their bases. That seemed more likely, however Ardere could not help but be slightly skeptical. Keeping his blade up, he had a feeling they were not going to just walk through most of his estate.

    Siren was at their position in shortly,  walking rather unhurried through the inner corridors like hidden passageways, used by servants of the house to go unnoticed in their duties.   Right now it served that purpose in other ways as Siren came up on the Musketeer's positions.  Following casually as some of her mages met with them.    She watched indirectly,  her extended senses adding to the imagery their magic painted in her mind in order to play out the scene for her.   When the earth magic started flying,  an eye-symbol appeared nondiscript on some of the stone,  and Siren could see for herself visually as the last earth mage fell.




    A mischievous part of her tugged at her mind as the desire to toy with them was brought on by her hidden state.  There was no sense in ending things too quickly,  she could amuse herself before doing anything drastic.   Before the four could get out of sight Siren flicked her wrist and suddenly there was a tearing in the air in front of them blocking the hall with a violent fissure that blazed with heat and appearing to suck out the air from the vicinity.   Through the crack was another scene entirely,  fields of fire and stone,  rivers of lava and seas of bodies of twisted humanoid creatures,  dark smoke-clouds swirling like a sky and bolts of lightning illuminating a great red city in the background.  




    It appeared for several seconds before a large demon suddenly filled the view as it shot in from the side,  a gnashing of teeth as it surged forwards with blade-like arms and legs and a body shape comparable to an armored centipede.   It was fast,  and it's body dominated the hallway with just enough room for it's dozens of legs to impale the floor, ceiling, and walls as it rushed the musketeers with a huge gaping maw full of razor-teeth. 






    (S-ranked demon appears!)
