Midnight's Journal: Constellations

by Midnight Erebus

"Yoke has been an interesting place. In ways it's almost a parody of many of the things back home. Still, it's an enjoyable sort of place. Still, haven't had a whole lot of luck with the Adventurer's Guild ever since I told them about my connection to Gibbet. I would like to explain that more clearly, but it's best I not let my true feelings get back to them. So for most of the day I just hoped they would adjust to my presence and someone would be brave enough to talk to me, even if it would be simply to rant about whatever their issues are. Knowing what Gibbet has done would be valuable information in my efforts in itself."
"Thankfully things seemed to pick up. I noted a rumbling off in the distance and went to check it out only to see this MASSIVE giant. The same apparently the Captain and her group messed up with. An opportunity to prove myself. I got on the radio to let everyone know I was going to check it out and if they wanted to come along, they were welcome. Little bit of initiative to clean up a mistake we made. This thought got caught short as I heard about other going ons. Quet and Isaac being hired to track down some books and Adli being threatened with arrest to get one in particular. Wasn't particularly happy about that last bit. What did ae do to be threatened with such a thing?"
"Anyways, first things first was to look into the small amount of clues we had. Just a name. Cursive. Not much, but well, I've worked with less. First thing to check in a situation like this is where such a name originates usually. Typically gives a hint on where a person might be from or their origin. Maybe you get lucky enough to find people with that name. We got sidetracked saving a child to the point where I forgot to ask the rather irresponsible caregiver that then abandoned the kid, but it worked out. We circled back to the library and met a rather interesting fellow who knew where we needed to go and gave us a quick way to travel. Could have done without being clubbed on the head, but still. Unfortunately we had to leave some powerful items as collateral. He also left a business card for a place in the Folded City? Perhaps my curse can be dealt with there in the long run if things don't pan out in Yoke. It is curious how the entire library seemed interested in my presence. So much so that my presence brought utter awkward silence. I seem to be having that effect on people."
"Back to the point, turned out Cursive lived in the area the giant was stomping around. Convenient. We tracked them down and while I would have loved to chat, we had to deal with things quickly to avoid the risk of the wagon being damaged. That chisel of mine absolutely can NOT fall in the wrong hands. We got to the manor and found the giant. Upset about not being able to take a nap apparently? My mind immediately went to Ceylon's music lessons. A lullaby that we were taught that it turned out I was rather good at and decided to sing for the giant while the others went to look for the book. Isaac cast some spell on the way in that I'm not entirely sure what it did, but I suspect it helped. The giant was very enamored with my song, lifting me up to a high rock to hear me easier and then wanting a story."
"A story.... what could I tell the giant? It was obvious after a moment. Who else could I tell him about but my old friend, Notroc Giantheart. One of the fiercest and strongest people I ever knew. The story of how we met and how we became close friends...."
*silence falls upon the recording other than background noise and a few loud sniffs before Midnight continued*
"Anyways... he seemed confused by my meaning at first, insulted even and attacked me. I blocked his attempt to toss me away using a vial of the lippy drug and my transformation ring but still took a powerful hit. Nearly broken by the strike, I forced myself to the feet and stared the giant down, asking simply if he wanted me to continue the story or not. I'm not sure if he was impressed with me, curious, or what but he let me continue, to clarify my meaning. Eventually he fell asleep. The others soon came out with the book and well, we were on our wa-.... I wonder if they checked for the other books that were asked for... we kind of wanted those particular books too afterall. Maybe I should ask Quet."

First Day on the Wanderpus

My home is lost to me. I don't know what happened in the Chaos Wood to create one of these "Rifts" but the odds of me getting back are low. It's still hard to believe. Still, I have to count my blessings that I am still alive. By all rights, I should have...

The Results of Midnight's Final Exam

The Fight (11) Fighting was very much one of Midnight's specialties however this new world made many of his usual strategies more difficult as he was used to more control over his shadow magic. This world's rules however made everything flow a bit diffe...

02:32 am - 08.05.2022

To Luminal's Moon

Quite an interesting mission to say the least... to traverse the Rift between Luminal and it's visible moon and discover what awaited us there. A perfect test flight for our new airship. To be honest, flight is definitely not a favorite of mine. Too much...

11:14 pm - 23.05.2022

After Action Report: Destruction of the HTTP Wanderpus

My knowledge of what occurred on the mission is limited. A strange flower-like object was brought on board that demanded study. Observations were made by various members of the crew. For my part I attempted to ascertain that it wasn't some plant-based liv...

Midnight Erebus's Bestiary, Page 5

I have earned three silver earrings in my life so far. The first was from the Ice Banshee hunt. The first earring is a sign of a full-fledged hunter, so every hunter that survives to be a member of an unsupervised party has the one. All that come after ar...

Midnight's Old Journal, 12/23/3540

[i]An excerpt from Midnight's journal, left behind in Meterra[/i] My father got me this journal and insisted I write in it. "A great hunter should keep a record of his life so all can learn from it," he told me. To be honest I don't see the point as I ...

Midnight's Old Journal, 05/11/3541

Been a while since I made a new entry. Honestly in part it was because of a recent incident that resulted me not being allowed in the house for a few days. My own fault really... mostly. Nilly really didn't need to go as far as she did but she proved her ...

11:38 pm - 11.06.2022

The Storm

The explosion of the submarine has seemed to have lead to a massive storm. Signs of it appeared immediately following the explosion but I didn't imagine it spreading like it has. It's definitely a nasty one. There will be a lot of repairs to do once it's ...

After Mission Report: The Floating Island

Our away mission to the floating island deep in the river of clouds was a fruitful one that I hope will make our unexpected long term absence more forgivable. To start off with we were guided by one Tsoki Chatterfang towards a floating island that was ...

03:52 am - 19.06.2022

Midnight's Private Journal: After Legends Rise

This mission today was an unsettling one if I'm perfectly honest. So much about where we were reminded me of home. A squirrel-like race of people with a hero worship culture and impressive technological skills? If it were not for the great chasm and the f...

05:42 pm - 19.06.2022

Midnight's Private Journal: After The Pot & Kettle

Midnight's Private Journal: After The Ascension

Can't believe I missed out on a vampire hunt... I never actually got to hunt down a vampire before. Will say though, the world we ended up was quite strange. When the nightmares first came, I imagined he'd be dealing with an attack on our town. Instead...

03:10 pm - 16.07.2022

Midnight's Private Journal: After Ante Up

I don't like when secrets are kept from me. Not at all. Mission started simply enough. A travel through the desert with Officer Krieg leading the way. He's not a bad pathfinder. Got us to the nearest town without any hassle at all. While overlooking th...

02:37 am - 17.07.2022

Midnight's Private Journal: After Teeth

I think this is the first time the crew has seen my darker side. Last night we had a party to celebrate the completion of our new ship. A worthy thing for a party. I drank more than I have in a long while. Celebrating with everyone I could, convincing ...

Midnight's Journal: After Hello Tomorrow

So ended the day naked in public and smelling like lemons. At least I feel cleaner than ever. Guess that slime stuff isn't so bad after all if the formula gets adjusted a bit? Either way, the burner that had the remnant of it has been passed along to the ...

03:22 am - 24.07.2022

Midnight's Journal: After Pretty Little Things

So apparently we're on hole digging duty... not exactly how I expected to spend my day. Didn't go all that great at first as apparently the cats don't really know what they're doing and ended up causing a collapse. Not exactly the most pleasant experi...

03:20 am - 25.07.2022

Midnight's Journal: An Interesting New Sword

So one of the more recent missions apparently resulted in the team bringing back some pieces of a magical weapon. Not particularly an uncommon occurrence in itself. What is more uncommon is that this weapon has ended up in my hands. Looking it over, I can...

09:19 pm - 04.08.2022

Midnight's Journal: After R.Y.L.A.H.

So another mission. We decided to finally take action against that storm the explosion of our previous sub caused. Not something I expected to be much help with so I stuck around on the new sub while the airship and away team went ahead. It was pretty ...

A strange day to say the least. We went through the rift to explore somewhere? Then went to some giant worm eating itself that apparently had a library inside? Probably one of our strangest trips. Not something I would question had events not played out t...
