    I'm sorry the only reason that I didn't get the orders in on time a the time is because last week I had to write a five page report on a really difficult subject. I'm really enjoying this please don't cancel it :(

    Yeah, I also had a glut of schoolwork this week. My absence was not due to disinterest.

    I also have school work but i'm procrastinating using your NES.
    Don't stop my procrastination, I don't want to do things that are important for my future!

    An interesting and completely incorrect view. I've actually just been fairly indisposed recently.

    In any case, Spy tries to get a view of the intruders, then kills one before disguising as it.

    If this is still alive...

    Komlin will ask some non-intrusive questions to Mrs Urksian, it is very doubtful that she will give any more useful information. Komlin then asks to look around the house,'if he is allowed he will look at the footprints with his travelling companion and mutter "if only there was some way to record them..."

    That vampire mentioned his friends on the outskirts, along with a hidden stash. Gems would be handy. Marina makes sure the vampires are gone before heading back to town and asking around about any other vampire hideouts.

    @Red, The Spy
    Spoiler 1-Up Robberies, 3 :
    You approach the strange group. You see that it is formed by strange creatures, some resembling turtles, some resembling mushrooms with legs, some resembling monkeys but with purple skin and a hand at the end of their tail, and one of them looking a lot like a really, really mean cat.

    (Body Medium, 3 Success) After a few moments of watching, you manage to disguise yourself as a monkey - the tail is really hard to do - and then you stab one of the monkeys, throwing it away before the others notice what has happened.

    You are surprised to see your companion managing to infiltrate himself among the incoming animals, even though he only seems to wear a flimsy mask. (Easy Body, 1 Success) While you do not know what the turtle-like creatures and the legged mushrooms are, you manage to identify the two others: several Aipoms and one Persian. You wonder who is controlling these Pokemon away from Kanto and Johto, but you don't think much about it. You just let Charizard out, surprising all of the creatures, some of which are clearly moving boxes around.

    What you can do now: Get the robbers to surrender, or fight!


    @Spymaster Komlin
    Spoiler PI Required, 6 :
    You ask a few more questions out of Mrs Urkian, but there is little else she can tell you, beyond her conviction that it is her ex-husband that stole her jewels. (Soul Medium, 3 Success) You manage to convince her to let you see the room where the jewels were stolen from, and also to see the prints left around by the robber, but she won't allow the man that brought you here to come inside.

    (Body Medium, 1 Success) The jewel room is small, with a window big enough to let anyone through, but the glass is intact. When you approach it, you see a few hairs next to the window, hairs the color of coal. (Body Medium, 0 Success) The footprints on the wall don't tell you much.

    What you can do now: see what else you can find from other witnesses.


    @Marina Lightyears
    Spoiler Vampire Sightings, 4 :
    You return to the town and tell the locals that you have killed most of the vampires. They rejoice at what you have done for them. You ask the town leader if he knows of any vampire hideouts beyond the ones you have already visited, and he points you towards the south. He thinks there might be a crypt in there with a hidden under-crypt, but he is not sure, since he heard about it from his grandfather. You begin to walk that way.

    What you can do now: guess it!

    Charizard, use Blast Burn on the mushrooms. I'm guessing they are grass or bug types, so they should take super-effective damage to fire type attacks.

    Shame Seismic Toss deals fixed damage regardless of, or I'd use them on the normal types.

    In the confusion caused by the Charizard attack, kill another one, still disguised.

    Komlin takes the small strands of hair and carefully puts them in a small cloth bag he has. He then goes back to Miss Urksian and attempts to convince her not to clean the room until the investigation is over.

    Komlin then goes with his traveling companion to Mr Markson's company to collect information on his business partners and who was fired recently.

    @Red, The Spy
    Spoiler 1-Up Robberies, 4 :
    (Mind Easy, 9 Success) You order Charizard to breathe fire on the legged mushrooms. Curiously, instead of burning up, the mushrooms jump and disappear as soon as they touch the floor. (Body Easy, 3 Successes) You sneak behind the next monkey and stab at its back. It drops to the floor like its partner.

    One of the tortoises raises its tiny hands, dropping one of the boxes. "We surrender!" the tortoise shouts.

    What you can do now: Find more about the robbers and what they were doing.


    @Claude, Megaman
    Spoiler Presidential Escort, 5 :
    "What are you mega-doing?" You ask, then get angry because the program you made got mega-deactivated. Must be because you mega-screwed up when you mega-took so much time to decide what to mega-do.

    (Body Medium, 2 Success) (Body Hard, 1 Success) You shoot at the President, completely pushing away the fact that you were hired to do the opposite. You mega-manage to push the President out of the mega-way and into the passageway, but you get mega-hit by some of the bullets. (-10 HP)

    "Come, Megaman," the President mega-tells you, pulling from your mega-arm. "We must leave. The traitor shall be punished in his own time."

    (Body Medium, 4 Success) (Body Hard, 2 Success) Before you leave, you shoot with your Megabuster, and you get grazed by it (-5 HP). You finally step into the passageway, which the President closes right behind you, leaving you stranded in the hospital.

    What you can do now: Megaman should escort the President, Claude should make peace with his god(s).

    @Spymaster Komlin
    Spoiler PI Required, 7 :
    You pick the hairs and put them into a cloth bag that appears out of nowhere, since you were not carrying it when you arrived here. (Mind Medium, 3 Success) You apply your willing suspension of disbelief to avoid going mad. Then you go to Mrs Urkian.

    "Ma'am, you should not clean that room until the investigation gets through."

    She snorts. "The police said the same."

    You nod at her, pleased that she will do as you ask, and leave the house, asking the driver to bring you to Mr Markson's company.

    What you can do now: Investigate further.


    @Marina Lightyears
    Spoiler Vampire Sightings, 5 :
    (Body Medium, 4 Success) You follow the direction the town leader told you, and eventually you find a small stone building you take it to be that crypt. When you open the door, it is empty save for a tomb. However, your sharper senses detect that there are scratches on the floor. You push it away and reveal a hidden chamber below the tomb.

    You enter the chamber and find that there are just two vampires within. They carry weapons with them, and seem a bit scared. (Body Medium, 2 Success) You jump at them and begin to hit them around, and, although you can't avoid being hurt (-5 HP), you defeat them in the end.

    You appropiate yourself everything they had with them (+100 GP, +2 Sapphires, +1 Strange Dagger, +1 Strange Sword) and carry the defeated vampires outside, where they turn to dust as soon as the sun hits them.

    You finally reach the town, and you are congratulated and thanked by the town leader, who gives you your reward (+100 GP, +1 Remedy). You then say goodbye and return to Nexus.


    Marina gets +10 XP for finishing this mission!

    @Yuuka:
    Spoiler History of Video Game Land :
    "Arrgh!" the Archivist screams when he sees you are drooling and still not moving, even after being hit by his sock. He suspects you must be suffering from a disease that makes you a completely lazy bum unable to move a finger save for those fleeting moments of intelligence that seem to have become extinguished like dragons at the end of the Age of Heroes. He jumps from behind his table and at you, with a large warhammer, ready to inflict some pain on you.

    (Body Medium, 1 Success) You manage to avoid the first swing, but not the next, which knocks you out. (-30 HP). When you wake up, you are in the middle of the street, with a note over your chest, saying that you should not count on getting a job from the Archivist anymore.

    What you can do now: look for another job.


    I am honestly surprised no one tried to get a better character. Some of these are not suited to the

    The one I'm putting here now is not going to be available at all, because then, what's the fun?

    Spoiler Surprise Character No One Thought About :
    Chell Freeman (Half-Life/Portal) / Milarqui
    BMS: 7 / 5 / 3
    HP: 90/90
    MP: 10/10
    Tech/Magic: -3
    Weapons: Gravity Portal Gun
    Inventory: Heel Springs
    Abilities: Mechanic, Smart, Likes Science
    Problems: Talks Little, Dislikes AIs, Dislikes Weapons
    Background: The daughter of Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance, she has been willing to follow on her parents' steps since she was tiny, and her parents taught her much about the sciences, both theoretical and practical. She was named after a young woman that had remained criogenized for several years appeared in the middle of the fields of old Kansas, whom her parents aided, and who also brought a strange weapon that could open "portals" between two distant points in space. Her mother managed to reverse-engineer it and include it in the Zero-Point Energy Field Manipulator, or Gravity Gun, she had given to Gordon when they met after he went missing for many years, creating a Gravity Portal Gun. When she became old enough, Gordon gave her the GPG, figuring she would find better use for it, joking that the combined smarts of him and Alyx could be enough to make her capable of facing any danger she might meet.

    Komlin goes into the company and attempts to get records on shareholders and high level people in the company as well as employees who have been fired recently. If he sees any one of those people he will compare his bag of hair to their hair.

    Sneak up behind one and put my knife at its neck before dropping the disguise. Then, interrogate him about why he was here.

    Hunt down the president and his protection.Destroy any getaway vehicles before they are able to enter them, and blow them up with the victims inside if possible.

    Claude will take by force what he wants. Because he can.

    I let my partner handle the interrogations, knowing that I could not exactly negotiate with my lack of speaking skills.

    However, I make sure to have Charizard intimidate the tortoise to make sure they spill the beans faster. Have him growl near him and flash his claws and fangs.
