Today is the 19th day of the The Height of the Season of Great Heat in the 137th Year Since the Wall Fell.

The past few days' calm has given way to a storm.

Sometime in the dead of night, the poor baking princess was carried off by a dastardly and brutish beast! Whether to be eaten, ransomed or merely admired as a piece of treasure, no one is quite sure, though at least one shopkeep was heard muttering about the consequences of princesses wandering off alone. No one can deny that it's all fantastically exciting, and most are eagerly waiting to see how this tale will unfold. Will the battle mage save the princess from the clutches of the dragon sisters? Will they both be burnt to a crisp? Will the cynical prince find either (or both) of the white mages? Will the mysterious white forest continue to grow? Is it sabotage that's ruining Mary's lettuce patch, or rabbits?

And of course, most importantly, will one of the daring rescuers win the heart of the fair princess?

The weather is due to be perfect for questing, whatever that means.

[Liara appears over the orb, looking harried and paying more attention to what appears to be a notebook of some kind than the orb itself.]

Yuan, I'm leaving very shortly, but we need to speak.

Ryo, Kotoha, if either of you have time, some help in the mountains would be nice.

[She turns a page over.]

Shin, we should catch up. Let's talk about when you might be available.

Gunpei, I have something I'd like to ask you to do, also.

[A pause, and then she looks into the Orb.]

And has anyone heard anything in the rumors lately about why dragons might act out now? Has anything changed that the locals have noticed? River, weather, other countries, other towns. Anything at all?

And is there someone willing to speech with the King?

[Somewhat dirty, a little worse for the wear, Peeta looks into the orb, face drawn with anxiety. The background is smudgy and dark, possibly a cave or a tunnel of some sort. There's a smudge of dirt on his right cheekbone. When he speaks, it's hushed and nervous.]

This is becoming a pattern, isn't it. I'm sorry for contributing to that.

[He glances over his shoulder, then back at the orb.]

I'm in the mountains. I'm not sure where exactly, but I was trying to get blueberries when--

[The background lights up in a spray of orange and Peeta ducks, covering his arm with his head. Once it passes, he looks back up and continues, in a rushed half-whisper.]

I think I've been kidnapped by a dragon. There's no way I'm getting out of this by myself, so...if you can help me out, I'd really appreciate it.

Today is the 17th day of the The Height of the Season of Great Heat in the 137th Year Since the Wall Fell.

More disappearances are the whisper of town today! It would seem that the Baking Princess has gone missing! Of course that's all that can be agreed upon, as the rest of the rumors range from the Princess being kidnapped in the middle of the night to him having wandered off in the middle of a loaf at the call of the birds. Others say that it's just too hot to be baking and he likely just went off to find some shade and what's all this squawking about anyway, really.

But isn't it just awful? First the little White Mage falling under a magical sleep, then the heroes disappearing... aaa, what's to become of the Kingdom, if there's no one to defend them? They might have to actually do something themselves!

...or look into some other ways to summon heroes. That's a much better idea.

Today is the 16th day of the The Height of the Season of Great Heat in the 137th Year Since the Wall Fell.

More titters about the mysterious disappearances in the monastery echo through the town today. Sadly, it's too hot for anyone to go see if any of them are true, not that anyone would bother with that to start with, but some say it wasn't just Tom who left, but half the monks as well! And the little White Mage was taken with them! Rumors are varied if the boy was awake or not, and in the end, does it really matter? After all, there was that hero White Mage as well who'd been taking care of--

...oh, he's gone missing too? Or is it that he's just refusing to see and heal people? Either way, quite a scandal, don't you think?

Today is the 15th day of the The Height of the Season of Great Heat in the 137th Year Since the Wall Fell.

Even in the quiet of Great Height, there are still rumors. Lazier ones that take a longer time to spread, much like the regrowth of the White Forest, which is looking quite lovely towards the center now. Such find birch trees, quite splendid! ...where was I. Oh right! Rumors!

The latest whispers say that there's been a sudden vacancy in the monastery. Tom, the monk who always watched over Kori and kept him in line has gone, with the abbot's leave. Something about a mission of great importance. To go traveling in the Great Heat, it certainly must be! Though it does seem odd that the man would leave the poor comatose little White Mage behind...

[When Selene appears on the Orb, there is no sign of the trauma that she exhibited the last time she spoke with anyone over the orb, and the way she acts as she begins to speak, it's as though it never happened.]

I don't suppose anyone knows the approximate value of three head of cattle? I'm afraid I might have been somewhat responsible for lessening the herd of a local rancher or whatever they're called in these parts, and I should probably correct that.

[She leans back a little from the orb, a smug little smile settling in on her face.]

Also, does anyone know of someone who sells jewelry? Something fine, not trash. It wouldn't do to send a half-rate gift if I'm a princess, one would think, and I certainly wouldn't want to anyway. I'd love to find something with a fine silver chain and sapphires. Or lapis, I suppose. Oh, I know the others are blue and everything, but I think Selenite would be wonderfully appropriate, all things considered. Does anyone have any ideas?

[After a moment, she sighs, and begins looking a little uncomfortable.]

Yuan. Um. Your Highness, and all of that stuff I'm not sure about, I'm guessing you have a horse and everything. Hmmm. How...um. Happy are you with it?

Today is the 13th day of the The Height of the Season of Great Heat in the 137th Year Since the Wall Fell.

The calm feel continues, the unpleasantly warm days of Great Heat driving people inside to seek the shade. There's been chatter about the heroes poking around the regrowing White Forest but the heat has kept them from approprately stalking-- I mean, following the heroes actions. Far easier to just make up stories, don't you think?

The weather forecast for the next few days continues to predict dry heat, clear skies and an atrocious lack of shade.

Today is the 11th day of the The Height of the Season of Great Heat in the 137th Year Since the Wall Fell.


The kingdom has been eerily calm the past few days. The White Forest continues to repair itself, obscuring the white tower in its center. The King's audiences have resumed as they were before, the streak of seriousness that had plagued him no longer anywhere to be seen. Even the New Moon past by without a peep from the forest... very strange. Perhaps the balance of the world is righting itself again? Or maybe just the heat of the day is making everything lathargic. There haven't been any new reports from the Thorns either. Very strange. But not anything bad!

Today is the 8th day of the The Height of the Season of Great Heat in the 137th Year Since the Wall Fell.

The growth of the White Forest continues, the birch trees creeping ever steadily outwards from the center. Maybe some mage from the other side of it got tired of the charred twigs and decided to restore it? Well, whatever the reason, it's a nice change!

Speaking of nice changes, the weather has decided to behave today! Sunny, warm, clear blue skies...! Perfect weather for a romp in the fields, eh? Eligible heroes may find themselves being accosted by young maidens [and strapping young lads, depending] seeking their romantic attentions for a walk in the fields. Aaa, youth~



[[This day will last from 3/20 to 3/24. Due to holidays, there won't be a post for the next day change, which will run from 3/24 to 3/27.

Today is the 7th day of the The Height of the Season of Great Heat in the 137th Year Since the Wall Fell.

The weather is expected to be an annoying mix of warm, humid and overcast. Most people are staying inside until it clears up.

Rumors are a bit scarce today, but there seems to be something going on in the formerly White Forest. Patches of it seem to be regrowing... Nothing near the edges, of course, but towards the center, the thin tall birch trees are reappearing, spiraling out from the center of the forest....

Today is the 6th day of the The Height of the Season of Great Heat in the 137th Year Since the Wall Fell.

The weather is expected to be hot, muggy and overcast. Bah! At least it's not going to rain, right?

...oh wait, it is? Well. Guess that's to be expected. Great Heat and all.

Might be time for the annual migration to port town. Weather's always nicer by the sea side! And the capital's gotten awful quiet lately. All those heroes whisked away to the corners of the map..it's almost as if someone wanted them to else where! As if there were Great Deeds to be done outside of the Capital!

...oh wait, there are? Well that's not especially ideal now isn't it. How on Earth are the heroes to be followed on their Great Deeds if the Deeds don't happen in the capital? Bah.

[Your handsome prince is a bit peaky-looking as he addresses the orb from a horizontal position. A bit green, too. Still, there are things that must be dealt with.]

How many of us have ended up somewhere unfamiliar, precisely? Are any of you who've been relocated in trouble? I hope I'm not the only one hearing odd voices in my sleep, either.

[A grimace. One eye cracks open.]

And. Fennel. Please.

[[Again, the orb shows only shadows, all sounds muffled, though this time, footsteps can be heard, soft and faint. This voice this time is subdued. There's less swaying and less of the wispy floating tone, replaced by something more resembling sorrow. Still it cracks and changes, unsteady and almost seeming unsure of what it should sound like.]]

I was told once, that these towns were already here when people arrived... the grand castle already starting its slow decay. And already the same signs return... houses empty, shadows outnumbering the living...

Will we leave behind only these shells yet again as we are pushed and pulled again and again?

Today is the 5th day of the The Height of the Season of Great Heat in the 137th Year Since the Wall Fell.

Despite the clockmaker's assurance that nothing's wrong with the clock, the town is still grumbling about something being wrong with time. General unrest is rising, especially with the disappearance of more heroes. Thankfully some have been located, though how one wound up in the mountains and one in the Old Capital has caused no end of speculation!

Speaking of the old capital, rumor has that the heroes are looking to set up a headquarters there too! Whispers of what may have caused the heroes to want to flee the capital are wide and as varied as the people sharing them, though the quietest whispers are that they must have found out about horrible secret of the Totentanz mansion and are fleeing it.

Whatever the case may be, the heroes may find the towns people either shunning them inexplicably, or begging them not to abandon them in their time of need.

[Liara appears in the orb, looking a little distressed and out of sorts. Behind her are trees, pine mostly, and no sign of civilization which can be seen. She purses her lips for a moment, and then frowns.]

Bakura, there is a bag of sweets in my room. I would strongly urge you not to try one. Also, I'm not sure where I actually...am...right now. So I don't know when I will be back.

[She lets out a heavy breath.]

I'm fairly confidant I am in the mountains somewhere. Does anyone know if they are supposed to be as dangerous at the forest? I have no idea.

Today is the 4th day of the The Height of the Season of Great Heat in the 137th Year Since the Wall Fell.

There's a strange feeling like something's just not quite right. The clock maker has been called to check up on the large clock in the middle of the town as locals are pausing to frown at it more and more. Seems fast somehow. Rather distressing really! You get caught up in a good gossip about that tea party and the strange effects that seem to have come from it and then the next you know it's the evening and you've lost half the day!

...maybe instead of tea parties, the heroes should be looking into that? Yes, that seems like a proper idea! And maybe they can get through to the King too!


[[OoC: Sorry it's late! This day will last from 3/4 til 3/9. (Note the change in day length! We are now at a 1:5 ratio!) (Calendar | Moon calendar )

Today is the 3rd day of the The Height of the Season of Great Heat in the 137th Year Since the Wall Fell.


All the town is still a'buzz at the Knight's Tea Party. And not only because of the lavish display everyone so quickly managed to put together! There was something truly magical about the whole party and it's lovely refreshments that were simply, and quite literately enchanting!

Though the source of the most gossip was the strange appearance near the end of the party of a giant footed snake! Some say it even had horns just like that horrible demon of the Cursed Shack, leading to much speculation about it being the familiar of said horrible demon. It certainly had a touch to match the foul creature!

Much more hushed rumors speak of a Prince who did not believe that the King existed! Simply scandalous! Perhaps it is because the Heroes do not believe in him that the King has gone into hiding once more? Really, it's such a dreadful situation!


The weather is expected to be... hold on, that can't be right. Hot, sunny, yet cloudy and raining, windy, yet still and cool? Clearly someone's been tampering with the poor forecaster's crystal ball!


[[OoC: This day will last from 2/27 til 3/4. (Note the change in day length! We are now at a 1:5 ratio!) (Calendar | Moon calendar )
