Mirai is a planet known for its highly advanced technology that nearly renders all the magic of Earthland quite meaningless. Well, just as those in Earthland can use the Wakusei Portals to travel through to Mirai, one such person has traveled through them to reach Earthland. Well not person per say. More like a robot…a highly advanced one that has a few bolts loose and has gone a little crazy with its programming. It wants to take over Earthland, starting with Fiore, and fill it with nothing but destructive droids and robots. A whole planet of nothing but wandering metal. Aliarey has been informed of such a thing happening, and for some reason has been convinced to take on the mission of ending the robot army. Having a temporary ally help out never hurt anyone either.
Reward: 50k Jewels and recognition for a job well done by the Magic Council. Also a droid core from the Mirai robot army. Can be used for study or to create a robot combat pet. Pet will be weak rank unless a pet slot has been purchased.
Earlier that day had started like any other when the blonde was in Talonia. She had left her room at the inn she normally stayed at and was busy hanging out with fellow mages in the lounge. Sitting at a round table with three others, Aliarey looked at the few cards that were in her hand. A simple morning card game. A simple morning card game that she was losing because she actually sucked at playing games that required a poker face. She was way too honest for it. During the game another mage entered the inn with some sort of paper and had been going through the room discussing what was on it and gossiping. She knew him and could have said hello and demanded to know what that was all about, but she was busy with
“You never do.”
“You’re a natural loser at this.”
“At least there’s someone worse than me for once…”
“You guys suck. I don’t even know why I play with you. Oh, by the way, Jonah,” she said, referring to the newly arrived mage to the conversation. Alia didn’t even bother looking at him as she raised a hand and materialized a pistol. “Here’s your gun back.”
“Wh-what the…Why do you have that?!” His eyes nearly popped out their sockets at seeing it in her hands instead of being stored away in her his requip pocket dimension. He took hold of it in a quick swipe and glared at the woman.
“I took it thinking I could make a trade. I was wrong so you can have it back. Enjoy.”
“Dammit, Aliarey! I thought you stopped stealing from people!”
“Stealing from random people. Doesn’t mean I won’t take anything from my friends and those around here that I know won’t send my ass flying to the next country when they find out about it.”
“Damn, girl! And here I was going to give you some information about a job too!”
Just as he began to walk away, Aliarey grabbed onto his shirt and pulled him back. “Hold up there! What’s this about a job?” She looked up from the hand of cards and blinked while staring at him. Add on an innocent smile and the man could only sigh instead of continuing making his way out the door. It had been some time since she had taken an interesting job, and if it was coming from that particular mage then it was going to be something big that was more talk than something that was actually official. Legal guilds weren't going to really find it posted on their job boards.
She was given the paper that had some detail on it as well as the verbal explanation of what he had heard. Apparently there was some major problem the Magic Council was trying to deal with, one that went as far as to include one of the planets that was connected to the Wakusei Portals. “Whoa, Mirai? Seriously? I’ve always actually wanted to go check it out.” More explanation to the point that her eyes rolled for a second. “Really, Jonah? Just because I use more tech-based magic you assume I have ‘Robot Dismantler’ tattooed on my forehead?” The job was simple when all the fluff was cut down and left only the basics: take out the leader robot that was controlling a giant army of them. Exciting and fun, but come on now. She couldn’t take out a whole army!
“No, but you do have that team or whatever you call it. You helped in those monster attacks with them, right? Maybe see if they can provide some backup. Either way, I bet there’d be a good reward. Doesn’t hurt to at least check it out.” And at that point he turned and left the table and card playing group. He was right that it wouldn’t hurt to check and see if some of her contacts would want to come with as support. Aliarey turned her focus back to the card game…the card game that ended. Her fellow players had taken advantage of her distraction and considered her forfeiting the moment she stopped playing. “Dammit, you guys!” Tables were flipped.
A few minutes later, Aliarey was walking out of the inn and down the streets with iLac in hand. First the magitech mage of her team had been contacted. It was the one Alia had worked with before on a few occasions and she liked that their magic had similar properties. They even kind of sort of got along and the requip mage had grown used to using her to keep her from doing anything too reckless. There was no answer. Next was the other holder mage, a celestial wizard. He wasn’t as close as the other was but dependable enough. No answer there either. “Jeez, where are those two? I finally take the time to add contacts onto this thing and they never answer….Ugh, are they really still pissed about that whole monster incident?” Honestly, they probably were. The magitech mage had nearly been magenapped by some ridiculous looking dog creature. That teammate scolded her for days after it was over, and never could get over that the first mention of her being called cute came from some sort of monster. The celestial mage had seemed a little more than angry with her too and had only been calmed down due to the monster girl that followed him around. They both had their reasons considering for a moment there they all thought they were going to die, but really it was Aliarey that was the one that got the ass kicking of a lifetime from some random masked psycho lady. They should have forgiven her by now!
“Aww, maaannnn,” Aliarey whined as her shoulders drooped in defeat and her head fell forward. “Now who am I supposed to convince to tag along on this robot beat down?” Sure there were a lot of mages she knew in Talonia, but she already knew none were going to even step up to the sign up sheet. If dealing with her wasn’t enough, then the job itself would. Well, seeing as there currently wasn’t anyone there worth recruiting that she was aware of, she went with the plan of just going solo and checking it out. Either she would run into someone along the way to whatever factory these supposed droids made, meet someone at the destination, or she could do the smart thing and find people once she scoped things out. It really would not be all that difficult. Supposedly. Maybe… Were her plans usually flawless? Actually…no probably. Details. Whatever the case, assuming people actually follow what’s going on around the world and know the super secret details the Magic Council tries to hide from the general public, there would be some mages aside from her circle that heard about it. That or they’d find out eventually just by running into Aliarey herself because at that point she probably would have taken a rabbit if she thought tossing it at the droids would make a good distraction.
