Troubles, Troubles

Daisuke and his friends headed to Whitewall to enjoy a little R&R and speak with a soothsayer Piety spoke highly of. First stop of the day? The Bath houses.

The soothsayer had some kind of clawed hands and was a little wacky if not extremely knowledgeable. An extremely talented Gateway player, he had no idea what Daisuke was but referred them to his master in Nexus. His terms were that the crew managed to stop the Lunar that was murdering the villages outside of Whitewall and Daisuke agreed. He was attended by a thin girl who was a mystery in herself.

Afterwards, Ishiko took Daisuke shopping and bought him a beautiful Jade Small Essence Canon along with a new wardrobe of clothes befit a Prince of the Earth.

Staying at an upscale hotel, Ishiko met a well-to-do Water aspect formerly of the Realm that seemed to hold quite a bit of respect for Ishiko.

Daisuke approached the Lunar and found out the Lunar was attacking the local villagers because they were over hunting the land. Daisuke got the Lunar to agree to stop attacking the villagers if he could get them to pull back on harvesting the local fauna and challenged him to a duel to solidify his position of authority above the Lunar. The Lunar also mentioned a hearthstone that was stolen from him by the local villagers and asked Daisuke to return it.

Meeting with the local villagers, Daisuke revealed himself as a God among men and all of the village elders quickly agreed to stop over harvesting the land, though Daisuke acknowledged that they were trading game for other resources and told them they could still continue expansion, just not at break-neck speed like they had previously. The villagers informed Daisuke they sold the hearthstone for a few opals to a traveling merchant.

Tracking down the merchant to Nexus, Daisuke informed the Lunar the villagers agreed to back off local harvesting and that he intended to travel to Nexus to reclaim the hearthstone. Making their way to Nexus, the Solars and Ishiko were postponed when a handsome Air aspect stood blocking their path with a sign of peace. He was attended by 25 other troops, half of which were Dragonblooded while the other half were elite mortal troops. He professed his love to Ishiko and beget her return with him to the realm.

The One That Got Away

Piety attempted to keep things friendly between the group and educated Daisuke about the Unconquered Sun, spirits, and the Solar condition.

Group came upon village south of Puyo that had been plagued by weather phenomenon despite having a perfect climate, their crops were destroyed and they had to sell everything they had just to get by.

Village Elder told the group about a mysterious woman that came through 8 months ago and how people started going missing.

Group headed north where the last group disappeared and struck off into the shadow land where they encountered the reanimated villagers.

Battle ensued, the Abyssal showed herself but vanished before Daisuke could get to her despite having spotted her.

Yumiko and Nicholas (Undefeated Piety) explained the Abyssal was a former circle mate and mourned both the needless passing of the villagers and the loss of their circle mate.

Dukes hunted for food for the villagers and gave everyone a good meal, Daisuke gave all of his Resources to the villagers so that they could relocate.

Daisuke, frustrated with his inability to stop the Abyssal menace, suffered a lesson in humility and struggled to come to terms with his own limitations.
