Job Title: How do you say Love?
Player Requirements: 2 A rank's or 1 S rank, 20,000 words total for thread
Job Requirements: Stop the Kitsune from ravaging the Forest.
Job Location: Any landform
Job Description: Recently there has been trouble in a certain area with a Kitsune that seems to have been driven to madness. One day? No one knew the beast was even in the area, that anyone was anywhere near a kitsune's territory, some even say the maddened beast is one that used to help travelers in the area get through safely during storms or dangerous event's! However, now he's clearly upset and corrupted in some manner, his power has become a real threat to any people in the area to the extent any mages beneath A rank are just not allowed in the area period until he's dealt with! Even higher ranked mages are advised not to travel alone and to come with a group if they intend on dealing with the problem.
Upon arrival, you will quickly find that the trouble extends beyond just the beast himself as he's caused massive damage to the environment, upsetting everything normal and supernatural that lives in the area.
Weak: Fires, Broken Bridges, Fallen tree's, etc x 10
A variety of obstacles await those undertaking this job before they really even get the chance to fight. From fires caused by camper's who abandoned the area in a hurry or travelers dropping torches to giant ditches formed by the power of the beast, the area is entirely unsafe. Actually, it might be best to also deal with the hazards before telling the council it's been dealt with, the place looks like a war zone.
Normal: Frightened/Angered Animals x 20
While a good number of creatures fled when his ramage started, other's were trapped inside the barrier cast to keep out weak mages and humans, thus resulting in them being extremely frightened and aggressive, all beasts from mice to elephants are fair game. It's even remotely possible humans became trapped inside if they chose to stay after his rampage started.
Strong: Frightened/Angered Supernatural Being's x 5
Hey, maybe they aren't even so angry as much as they don't want to leave and see you as a threat alongside the Kitsune or may even be trying to protect an ailed friend. Anyway's, these pack much more punch in battle than the other oppents prior, are more intellegent and often all use different kinds of magic.
Boss: Corrupted Kitsune
This is a male kitsune whose appearance such as coloration is decided by player's, though he is always in 'beast' form as the corruption eating away at him makes him incapable of maintaining a human-like form. When facing off against him the player's have the choice to fight him to his death, attempt to seal him forever somewhere or the hardest option, trying to bring back his mentality and purge the corruption from him. When fought he utilizes a moonlight sort of glowing magic instead of fire magic, meaning he has no weakness to water or such as his attacks aren't flame based.
Reward: S rank exp and 50,000 jewels
Note: this is very purposefully extremely opened ended and vague, so that this can be taken as anything from a mission to calm the whole place to a mission to kill the whole place or anything in between.

He decided to discuss the issue with his guildmates as he went out, but before he took a step, a flyer covered his face. “Umph,” he coughed as he grabbed the flyer and took a brief look. It mentioned a call for help as Crescent Island - the island northwest of Fiore with the shape of a crescent moon - was in a state of emergency due to a huge fire. It also mentioned a ravaging kitsune… and as soon as he read that up, the paper suddenly began to emit sparks until it burnt away. “N-No, wait, what…!?” he commented all confusingly, “… Okay, what in the world is happening?”
Kyuken and Zirconis couldn’t but spectate the worried shaman as they spoke:
“Quite a cold he has…”
“That’s not a cold, you dimwit. It’s obviously connected to that island… didn’t you see the-“
“I’m pretty sure that catching a cold does the same thing to him. You know, magic and all-“
“L-Listen, you know him better than I do, right? Isn’t he one of those… uhh, what were they called again? Onmyōji?”
”O-Oh, yeah, that’s right! He’s the Onmyōji… what does that have to do with the case?”
“… Frankly, I’m not sure, but let’s ask him.”
The dragon ghost would fly over to Mura and suggest: “Your magic is being weird, right… try and focus. What exactly triggers all of this? What thoughts and feelings are playing with your powers…?” Mura glanced at him then understood immediately - focus and calm thoughts were where he was at home, and if there was something that he excelled at, then it was to focus (to some extent). Closing his eyes, he let his magic flow freely, brainstorming today’s thoughts and duties that he had… maybe it was because of the confusing feelings themselves… maybe he was forgetting something important, and his magic tried to remind him- nope, as soon as the kitsune from the paper came to mind, his magic brightened up.
“I think that I know now…” he spoke up as confidently as ever, “Zirconis, pervert, we’re going to Crescent Island. Now.”
Alright, black-orange gi - check! Harusame - check! Futsu no Mitama sword - check! Short cloak with tomoe - check! Headphones - check! With that, he managed to gain entry to a large boat that was preparing a rescue mission to Crescent Island. The boat needed manpower and wizards, and Mura was far from alone; wizards from Fiore and Ca-Elum were gathered in the boat, approximately 7, and whilst Mura was steering the sails with one hand, he knew little of the exact identities of his companies…
