Alder: "The -alternative- here… is that we mop up the rest of you poor sods who're the spit at the bottom of the bucket, and you're all free men behind bars."
Chrysanthemum: "A long, long while, and ye're gonna have to learn t' work the land, an' fend for yourself- I've been to corners of th'world you can hardly imagine, babies, I know this'n's possible- but people're willing to trade good Gon and supplies for protection against the wilderness."
Chrysanthemum: "It won't be easy, but if you wanted an -easy- life, well, I'm sure that Mystic'll take you back if'n you crawl back with yer tails between yer legs."
Chrysanthemum: "An I don't recommend that."
PseudoGM: The Hundred scrunches up its face in thought, scratching at the side of its face. "…Y'reckon? Can't imagine them flimsey lil' things -" It nods towards Soahc, "Payin' us for nothin'."
Rudri shrugs. "They pay pretty well for it where I come from."
Chrysanthemum: "Hah! You'd be surprised. They'd rather stay home than fight. We're -made- for fighting, no sense runnin' from that! But we can choose what to fight and who to fight for, who t' protect. Can choose t' look after our own. Can be more'n just weapons."
Chrysanthemum smacks his belly with a loud CLONK for punctuation. "MY NAME'S CHRYSANTHEMUM THIRTEEN. Tha's more'n just a weapon, that's somethin' beautiful."
Chrysanthemum: "Remember 'at."
PseudoGM: "Huh…"
PseudoGM: "Well…"
PseudoGM: "…I guess we could try'n maybe move tha camp offa the road and maybe jus' hunt wild animals and bit and see how that goes… …if ya think you can keep the Knights off our tails if we promise not ta ransack their cities…?"
PseudoGM: A couple of murmers of reluctant assent from the crowd inside the camp.
Lyra: "Sounds like a good start"
Chrysanthemum nods and gives 'em a thumbs up. Soahc will be able to think of -something- on the human end of things. Someone else's problem!
Alder: "One last thing…"
Alder: "You didn't eat the dwarves, did you?"
PseudoGM: That DOES sound like a thing Soahc could do! He already bluffed his way into making the Knights think he was a Court Magician… And pulls out something to write with. Gunna send a note to the Knights saying the Hundred were subjugated, and a basic outline of what the survivers agreed to as long as the Knights don't come attacking them.
PseudoGM: "…Who'd ever eat a dwarf? All smoke, no substance."
Chrysanthemum giggles.
Chrysanthemum: (Well, okay, it's still more like a bass chuckle, but.)
Alder: "Well! That's good to hear!"
Alder: "We'd like to free them now, if you don't mind."
PseudoGM: One of the Hundred frowns. "…This is gunna mean we needta let tha' captive go, ain't it…?" "Haugh!" Sighs of dismay. "Loadin' them bows is so hard with claws!"
PseudoGM: A lot of grumbling, but it… doesn't look like they're going to stop you at this point, even if they don't have the heart to do it themselves. One of them procuded a key for the shackles and hands it over.
Rudri shifts. "I mean, you could try to -hire- some people to help you with that."
PseudoGM: Another Hundred squints at Rudri. "Y'mean… pay someone for slave work?"
Chrysanthemum: "Bet they'd be more'n willing if you were working to help keep their village safe. …maybe not those same ones, though, heh… hey! No more slaves. Our people, out of -all- people, should know better than that!" He groundstomps.
PseudoGM: "Huh."
PseudoGM: Judging from the reactions on their faces, it doesn't seem like that's a thought that's ever crossed any of their minds before!
Chrysanthemum: "'sides, y'all aren't Mystics. Chains don't really cut it on their own. One o' these days you're gonna have a bad time, goin' down that route."
Chrysanthemum: "But money! And food! And… CAMPFIRE STORIES? That's where it's at."
PseudoGM: "Well, we'll see then I 'uppose. Proally oughta give 'em a few week to cool off a'fore talkin' to anyone all nice like, eh?"
Lyra: "A good idea"
Chrysanthemum: "Yeh."
PseudoGM: The Hundred folds its arms with a nod, while most of the others seem to be gathering various things and preparing to move. Meanwhile, the free captives make a big show of thanking you all, before Soahc hands them a letter explaining the situation and sending the humans back to town.
Lyra: "Hrm… That's one issue resolved"
Alder takes the [Key Item: Shackle Key] and heads for the prisoner(s?).
Lyra looks at the party, walks up to Alder and looks at him for a moment, shakes her head "Either way, we should probably get going"
[OOC] Lyra: That was already part of the cutscene, Hachi!!
Alder pets Lyra!
Lyra !
Alder waits until they're clear of any potentially overhearing Hundred. "So…"
Alder eyeglints. "This is where we change history,"
Alder: "Convince the dwarves to join the effort early,"
Lyra: "What are you going to try, Alder"
Alder: "And forge a new, alpha timeline, correct?"
Lyra: "Hrm… At the very least, it would be a good idea to prevent the disaster the dwarves are about to cause"
Chrysanthemum: "Bold! I like it!"
Lyra: "We also need to track the original stone as well"
Rudri: "… Remind me what the dwarves are supposed to do?"
Alder: "Join together with the other kingdoms, and still get utterly squashed."
Lyra: "At some point dwarves opposed to joining hands with Mels will kidnap one of the princesses, the ensuing problem ends with major casualties on both sides"
Lyra: "That disaster will sour the diplomatic efforts sufficiently to delay Thon's joining the united front against Gudu by many months"
Rudri: "… Don't we have our own kinda major crisis we're supposed to be solving already?"
Lyra: "Well, we also know someone stole the same gemstone that brought us to this point in time"
Lyra: "We have no idea on the identity of the thief"
Lyra: "The idea with assisting with the Hundred problem was also so we could gather some influence locally to be able to gather information on that front as well"
Rudri: "I… kinda meant the whole thing where half of my country are kind of being villains?"
Alder: "Perspective."
Chrysanthemum reaches up and scritches one of Rudri's ears. "Gotta work up t'that, as I see it."
Lyra: "Hrm… The succession war?"
Lyra: "Unfortunately not my particular topic of study but it is also a point in which we could interfere"
Rudri raises an eyebrow. "I mean, Chry and me were sort of on our way to the lines…"
Lyra: "Given… This is previous to the invention of airship… Mobility might be a major issue, so I was mostly looking at what we can do at the local area"
PseudoGM: They don't even have automobiles! Truely a sad state of affairs.
Alder: "The bit of history oft forgot is that, allegedly, dwarves briefly stole the Jewel of Ancestry."
Lyra: "Given my understanding of our current place in time, Rudri, that shouldn't happen for another four centuries. Of course the cause of the dissidence in our time of origin could very well be here, at the time of their unification"
Lyra looks at Alder
Lyra: "I wonder if the kidnapping and the theft of the jewel aren't connected"
Alder smiles and spreads his arms wide. "Therein lies the diamond for which we shift through the rough."
Lyra: "As one can see, the Jewel is a very powerful magical artifact, and Mels has long since been at the front of magical studies so the involvement isn't implausible"
Alder: "With the Hundred here pacified, and the dwarven captives released, perhaps we can get some of the humans to offer up their time and effort to indulge us as to their knowledge on the subject, or liason with the dwarves themselves, now that they… should, bear goodwill."
Lyra: "One can be hopeful"
PseudoGM: The Hundred camp as right at the base of the mountain, so you're probably about halfway between the Mels village you were just in, and where the Thon one should be.
PseudoGM: was^
Alder: "Although…"
Alder smirks.
Alder: "Glad the rest of them surrendered?"
Alder: "I can't imagine everyone's in tip-top shape."
Alder: "How about we find rest and a meal somewhere, somehow, and continue the next day?"

Chrysanthemum pets Rudri's other ear.
Lyra looks at the road "So let's go already, then"
Alder: "Okay, so, maybe the question didn't go through-"
PseudoGM: The road's well travelled so it's not hard to find somewhere decent to camp out at least. Which, granted, doesn't get back into tip top shape… but it's good enough to get your stamina back for travel! And after a bit of trip that's vaguely defined in time units due to a combination of me forgetting exactly how far I said the trip was and SNES style world map movement, you eventually
PseudoGM: reach the tunnel leading into the dwarf city [Thak]! The sun's just set, so there's toarches lit on the sides of the caves, and two dwarves in armor and spears standing guard.
[OOC] Alder: ignore what I just said
[OOC] Lyra: It's okay Hachi, I know Alder can never, ever say what he means or wants by any means for any reason meaning he never gets his answers nor does what he wants to
PseudoGM: "Oi! Who goes there!"
Lyra: "(Figured we'd take this route…)" she'd been walking, she jumps on Alder's shoulder "Hello! We're travellers"
[OOC] Chrysanthemum: Fuck alreadyyy
Lyra: "Actually, we just hopefully dealt with the situation in the road, so we figured we could tell you about it"
PseudoGM: "Wh -?!" "It spoke!" "…" "…What's that word where you make it sound like sommat what can't talk is talkin'? Something with a V?" "Ventrillo…something." "Yeah, that. That makes more sense than a talkin' puppet." The dwarves nod to one another.
Alder smiles wide.
Lyra: "(… Annoying… Ugh…)"
PseudoGM: Then do a double take after noticing the rest of the party. "Strange groupa travellers, indeed!"
Lyra jumps from Alder's shoulder and looks away, ugh
Alder: "Indeed!"
PseudoGM: "You with that other cloaked fellow, then?"
Alder: "Hmm…"
Alder: "No, sorry, can't say that we are."
PseudoGM: "Ahah. Nature 'o your visit to Thak, then?"
Alder: "Although we're always glad to meet new people!"
Alder: "Ah, yes, we came to report on the release of dwarven prisoners further up the way, as well as to inquire about any rash of crimes- thievery, among them!"
PseudoGM: "Ah! Mercenaries then!"
PseudoGM: "Hmm…"
PseudoGM: "Well, there's probably always work for their lot, yeah?" "Bit late though." "Eh, send 'em up ahead to the Inn an' let 'em rest, and let whoever's on mornin' duty handle all the paper work." "Sounds good ta me!"
Alder: "It's well appreciated, my good fellows."
PseudoGM: The guards nod to one another, stepping aside. "First buildin' down the tunnel, can't miss it."
Alder nods graciously and continues forward.
PseudoGM: The tunnel's surprinsingly wide, all things considered. Probably because Thak is on the boarder, so they're more used to needed to facilitate foreigners. You don't even have to slouch to walk, Chrys! Though it's kind of close.
Chrysanthemum tromp tromp tromp! It's appreciated!
Lyra sighs once the party's moving, and goes to follow. This is really getting annoying
PseudoGM: Eventually you come upon a thick set of three (seems a bit excessive really…) metal gates sealing off further passage down the tunnel, with two buildings in front of them. The one closest to you has a large [INN] sign above it's door, with a small travellers shrine set up next to it.
Lyra: "Hrm… Makes sense…" she looks at the inn "Well, let's go get a place, shall we"
PseudoGM: Inquiring inside, it seems like it'll run you [10Gon] to [Rest And Fully Heal Yourselves] for the night, without much of any fuss. They're used to all sorts of strange people wandering in.
Alder bustles INNto the INN!
Alder pays the Gon with a smile.
PseudoGM: ~INN Music Plays~
