Never split the party
In fact, yes she was! As hard as the goddesses worked to rid Lucernia from the pirates, they weren’t able to do it alone; A few rogue pirates offered to help, in exchange for a few privileges. The ones who went to jail would obviously take any chance they could to get back at them, but for now, Bleu remains as the leader of the Outer Rim Merchant’s Guild, one of the most influential guilds in the outskirts of Lucernia. What better position for an ex-pirate than a bank manager?
As for the second question, yes, it can. But we’re currently out of LP to use our magic!
Dias is just a butler bot, he can’t do those things… Yet. All he’s good for now other than punching things is helping with umm… Stress relief.
With all this chaos we couldn’t get them out! But we still have them on our stats, what’s up with that?
Don’t worry, the women will find their way to the tower, no one can resist the pleasure of indulging in the power of the Hearth! Now shut up and keep running!
Okay, we should be far enough now, let’s take a break and hatch a plan.
They’re right, we should leave someone behind to keep an eye on Bleu’s movements.
Hmm… I think I have an idea.
We don’t have any training facilities to change our minion’s classes yet, but we can certainly try to make them stealthy, let’s see…
Alright boy, stay here in the bushes and report back to us if anyone passes by, okay?
Don’t worry about that. No bankers, no debts, right? *wink wink*
I can’t even wink in this thing…
How far away are we? I really want to go take a look at the crystal you mentioned.
Yeah, right, I’d never seen one of those before, what’s up with that thing?
If it’s what I think it is, It’s a source of power, like the blue crystals that make the skyships float! Lucia destroyed most of them, but you can still find shards in the caves of the ancients. It’s amazing you found one that’s still in one piece!
She’s the reason we attacked the town? Not quite what I expected…
Well I’m sorry to disappoint.
Pipe down Ceres, that’s rude.
Okay shush all of you, my tower isn’t gonna rebuild itself! Let’s get going!
Great idea, let’s split the party! Ceres, have your mushminions escort the blue girl back to the tower while we go and find our wizard!
Yes sir! You heard the man, guard the girl!
Ummm are you sure it’s safe? I mean, they look cute enough but…
Ah, don’t worry, they’re lovely! Lily, these are the mushminions. Mushminions, this is Lily, you guys take care of her!
Daaawwww, I can’t be scared of something this cute. Okay, I’ll go with them.
One last thing, do you know where Egor is these days?
He got some tools with me before he left… Said something about an old temple in the mountains. Also, he had a really goofy looking girl with him.
Egor with a girl? That’s rare.
Oh no no, it didn’t look like they were *together*, I think she was a bodyguard or something.
Enough chit-chat, time to continue marching! Blue girl, the minions will escort you to the tower, just keep heading northeast from here, you can’t miss it.
And so, before the writer could procrastinate even more, the party split up. Lily was escorted on an uneventful trip back to the tower by Dias and the mushminions, while Ophi and the others went to the ruins to find Elgor, The Roaming Wizard.
Okay, I think this is the right place…
Weird, I feel like there’s something wrong here…
Gee, I wonder why.
Yeah… I’m not sure.
Shut up you two, there’s something coming!
I’m finally free of my bindings! Soon all life on Lucernia will share the pain I endured for the last hundreds of years!
Jhon! Long time no see!
Lars!!! Long time no see mate! What have you been up to?!
Ah you know, the usual. Stuck in an orb on some cave for a millenium, some girl shows up and now she’s wearing me like a piece of gear…
Damn, I feel you man, I’m on the same boat!
Are you guys friends with Jotariel too?! :3
