Job Location: Sakuramori
Job Description: Remember that gingerbread that was running around going all cray-cray?? Remember how he kept raving on about the muffin man?? Well, a job board was recently placed out and it’s specifically for the one who actually decided wreck his poor little ‘sub-ordinate’:
“DEAR WHOEVER KILLED MY GINGERBREAD MAN! I AM SO ANGRY THAT YOU DECIDED TO KILL MY ONE AND ONLY THING! I AM GOING TO WAIT FOR YOU IN THIS WEIRD PLACE CALLED SAKURAMORI! I WILL WRECK YOU!”
Taking matters into your own hands, you decide to wreck the muffin man just as much as you wanted to eat the gingerbread man when you chased it.
The muffin man is no more than a baker who is extremely angry with the player who decided to destroy the gingerbread man. It will take 7 B ranked based damage before he goes into each phase by using his magic ‘dough-make’ Take precaution as in every turn, he will use this magic to try plop a humongous piece of dough on you to either attack you or let his cronies attack you. The muffin man deals B ranked damage. When all phases are done, he will then take 9 more B ranked damage before he is defeated.
Gingerbread men x 9 (first phase)
These gingerbread men deal D ranked damage before breaking into pieces, make sure you break them first by dealing damage in any rank. One thing to consider though, they run faster then a B ranked mage.
Cookie monsters x4 (second phase)
These cookie monsters are no jokes. When the muffin man makes them, he will make it so that they will try eating you for C ranked damage… literally. The cookie monsters take 2 C ranked damage before they go down!
Dough snakes x2 for number of players in job (2 go for each player)
The muffin man almost has had enough! He will make long lines of dough that resemble a 10m snake with 5m thickness to come and try strangle the player to finish them off. One of the lines will go straight for the neck while the other one will tie around their wrists together, rendering any type of magic that requires arm movement completely useless… how to get rid of the one on your wrist…?? EAT IT!
The dough snakes deal C rank damage for every post that it is wrapped around your neck and takes 2 B ranked damage to rip it to shreds and to move onto the final phase!
Reward: 10k jewels and C ranked EXP.
Peering down at the paper for the umpteenth time Rohma considered simply ignoring it. ’I mean, it’s not like the guy knows after all…and besides who the heck gets this fired up over a single cookie? It’s not like we stole it from the cookie jar or nothin’ so…not sure what his problem even is…’ In passing the mage mentioned the runaway cookie to one of the bartenders of her guild, sharing a small laugh at the anticlimactic way the ginger man met his end by the jaws of a roaming street mutt. Then this afternoon as he placed the plate of spaghetti before her, the gentleman reached below the counter and placed a paper next to the plate before wandering off to attend to another guild mate.
” ‘Sides it’s not like we actually…”killed” it. The dog did. Can’t blame him: was probably hungry,” she mumbled beneath her breath. Endlessly she looped pasta on her fork, twirling the instrument in circles until her mind occasionally remembered to actually eat and not just play with her food. Regardless of the real culprit in this case the man issued a challenge and obviously expected someone to answer the call. What would happen if it went ignored? Would this fellow eventually unleash a plague of sentient cookies upon the lands? Maybe he’d start bringing people’s food to life? Or…well Rohma’s mind couldn’t seem to escape silly things, but with a sigh she admitted they’d still raise public chaos to a degree. If left unattended this man could still cause some damage.
”But why should I have to answer this call? So dumb…” As if to silence her grumblings the fork jammed a mouthful of sauce-covered noodles into her mouth, cheeks bulging in some vain hope that might stymie her annoyance. ’If the guy doesn’t know this challenge might’ve shown up at other guilds…maybe someone will raise to the task? Though…why the hell the gingerbread man ended up here in Tera Ignis from someplace close to Rose Garden…does he have some sort of magical connection? How the hell does he know?!’ Frustration simply continued to build until the dark haired woman pushed the plate back, stomach no longer welcoming in lieu of tumbling thoughts. Cheek cupped in a hand, Rohma eyed the paper again and sighed, ”Wonder if Misayo got one too? I mean was kinda weird so wouldn’t be surprised if she mentioned a living cookie to someone…though who knows. Maybe she’d be willing to go along and convince the dude a dog enjoyed it? I mean it wasn’t killed just…eaten…as cookies should be…right?”
Though first she’d have to find the other woman. ’If I’m lucky she’s nearby…if I’m not then hopefully she’s at least somewhere in town even if not at the guild hall…’
