One day, while -insert what you were doing- you receive a letter from -insert something here- saying "Hey... um... Look, my name's Lexa and I need some help. I was checking around the Ancient Ruins after one of my jobs, and I found.... something. I can't go through the tunnels on my own because the enemies are a bit much. So if you'll assist me in taking them out I'd be sure to give you something!" ~Lexa Grimoire
Upon arriving, you see a girl around 5ft tall wearing a black miniskirt, a grey shirt with no sleeves, black fingerless gloves, and black boots extending to just below her knees. She seems to be 14->16 years old, but is actually 18. She walks up to you and your party, greeting you all with a generous smile and shows you a small black strip that looks like little more than a piece of metal. However, she then applies a bit of MP to it and the strip (as well as herself) begins to glow.
It is up to the players to describe the tunnel system, and the laboratory you go to. It is also up to on of the players to act as Lexa Grimoire as she will be an NPC if the real one isn't there.
NPC - Lexa G:
Weak: Circuit Covered Spider
These creatures are fairly massive, being 3 feet wide without their legs, and 6 feet wide with them. They're impossible to miss as their body is covered in circuits, and these circuits glow bright yellow in the dark. These circuits are defensive ones that make it so their body can never be harmed, however, they have 8 legs that have no circuits at all. These will take 1 hit of D rank damage per leg (8 D rank in total) to defeat. The spiders are able to jump around, climb on walls, and fire their webs at you to snare you in place. Their bite will cause you to take C rank damage, as well as inflict a poison dealing 3% HP per post, for 5 posts in damage to you.
Normal: Circuit Covered Dog
The breed of the dog is up to you, as well as its description. The dog is mutated, like the spiders, to be over 4 feet tall when on all fours, and is covered from head to toe in golden circuits. These dogs have the animal lover circuits on them, meaning they deal +50% damage to humans, but deal 25% less damage to animal. Beings like insects, dragons, aliens etc... receive normal damage. These are very fast creatures, able to run up to 40 mile per hour and require no time for accelerating to such speed. However, they require time to decelerate to stop. They attack for C rank damage, and take 4 D rank hits or the equivilant to defeat.
Strong: Circuit Covered Scientist
This guy has circuits all over his body, and is roughly 6ft tall. The rest of his description is up to the player (could be a zombie scientist, be shirtless, look like a normal scientist etc...). He attacks you with a scalpel, and a bone saw, each dealing B rank damage. It takes 10 hits of D rank damage or the equivilant to take him down. His circuits make it so he cannot be killed in 1 hit, and also make it so every other hit the damage is reflected back in the direction it came from, and 5x the speed. Additionally, he is immune to poison, stun, burn, bleed, stat reduction, and all other forms of Crowd Control.
After defeating them all, you come to a large room with suits of armour lining the walls, and something very disturbing... Several massive containers filled with liquid. Except one... one of them has a girl inside who looks every bit like Lexa Grimoire. Worse is, she talks, acts, thinks, and even fights like her too. The girl opens her eyes while inside the vat of strange liquid and her circuits light up causing her to disappear. She reappears outside the vat, and begins talking to Lexa, addressing her as "Big Sister" making Lexa believe she has a twin. After a small exchange of Dialogue, the enemy Lexa says "Unfortunately, papa ordered you dead." and her circuits light up bright gold as she begins her attack.
Describing her is redundant, she looks 100% like Lexa Grimoire. It takes 16 hits of C Rank damage (due to resistances) to defeat this version of Lexa Grimoire. She moves 30% faster than normal people, has a +35% Defensive Boost to magic and melee, deals +50% Damage to humanoids, can fly, and is immune to poison, stun, burn, bleed, stat reduction, and all other forms of crown control. Her spells are as follows:
Teleport - Lexa is able to teleport anywhere within 10 meters 1time every 3 posts
Shadow Burst - Lexa becomes a shadow and disappears, reappearing anywhere within 15 meters 1 time per 4 posts
Heal - Lexa heals herself for 3hits of damage immediately. This can be used 1 time per 5 posts
Blood-Rage - Lexa's circuits glow blood red, and then explode like a blown light bulb. Lexa attacks all enemies for +50% rank damage, as well has can move 30% faster. Lexa cannot use any of her spells for 3 posts, and this can be done 1 time
Dimensional Coffin - Lexa snaps her fingers and two portals open up above and below the room. A massive flurry of swords, spears, arrows, knives; any weapon you can imagine, flies through the portals at rapid speed. This deals 30% HP damage to all who cannot defend against it.
After this version of Lexa is defeated, she will say "I guess big sisters are made stronger..." before teleporting out of the room. Lexa will address you and the team, and throw a set of the armour from the wall at you, saying it's the best she could do to repay.
1x Strong Armour
2x D Rank XP
Access to "Act II: Adflictio"
It was early in the morning at the guild, Laughing Coffin. There were barely any clouds in the sky which was funny since it was just raining yesterday. The sun which has just started to peek out was giving the sky an orange color while the birds began chirping. Sebastian was laying in his bed in his room with one leg dangling over the edge. His hands rested on his chest as he stared up to the ceiling. He couldn't believe that he went from being homeless to joining a guild, even though it wasn't a legal one it still seemed to have function like any other guild. He lifted up and looked at his left hand, staring at the guild tattoo on his hand. It was dark red, like his own dark red eyes. He couldn't help, but smile at the tattoo. He just had an odd but good feeling about joining this guild.
Sebastian slid out of bed. He was wearing a short sleeve black shirt with black pajama pants with white stripes. He stretched his arms out and yawned before rubbing the back of his head. Today was a new day. Not as a homeless guy, but a mage in a guild. The white haired mage walked down the stairs to the hall of the guild. It was empty just like yesterday. He was told that there were other members here, but he had only met two of them. He sighed in both relief and sadness because he didn't know what to do if anyone else had shown up, but was kind of looking forward to meeting other people. "They don't even have chocolate pudding." he said with a sad tone before closing the fridge. Something then caught the mages eyes. It was a note on the side of the fridge. He could've sworn that wasn't there before. He looked left and right before taking the note off of the wall and began to open it. "I know I shouldn't, but here goes nothing." the timid mage said to himself before he began to read.
