[[My internet’s taken a dive. It’s not off, just…So slow it’s dropping connections this way and that. This happened once before when I had to spend a day and a half downloading FFXIV on my PS3…And I just finished re-downloading Skyrim for 7 hours the other day. I can’t help but wonder if Verizon is throttling my bandwidth for some reason? As if it wasn’t slow enough, if those download times are any indication.
I really need to switch to Comcast already.
Anyways, I’m gunna reset the router in a bit and hope that helps. If so I should be back tonight! If not…Well, I’ll still try. All these posting failures are driving me up the wall though haaaah. |l’orz ]]
Visitors didn’t come very often, every once and awhile the ex-wife would pop by, obviously content with living her stint in the Da Chao Mountains, but he was fine with his solitary, knowing full well his sentence was less than two years. Then he would be placed on house arrest for the rest of his eternity, because— why would the state wish to provide for an immortal forever?
Those days he got visitors were far and few between, especially since solitary in Hainan had rules that only the Imperial family could bend. Of course, all his recent visitors had been on order from Her Imperial Majesty, Empress Kisaragi, herself. This person was different— and they had come of their own volition and it was not his former spouse asking what she wished to do with his surviving and very large estate.
No, this person had been his information exchange, and had been adopted within the Imperial family for security reasons. Of course, that explained the change in hair and facial markers. The older man watched as the guards lead the man in and showed him where to sit, a thick layer of plexiglass between the both of them. The professor was old hat to this, simply picking up the telephone connected to the wall, watching the younger man mimic him.
”You look like shit.”
[[oooops accidentally watched the entirety of the oscars w/ my mom, sorry folks. needed something to do while skyrim downloaded and its stiiiiill not done so i’ll be taking my leave early tonight. need to cut down on my bandwidth usage so it hurries the frick up. >T ]]
"You are tried with two counts of treason to your country, three counts of endangerment to the crown, and one count of terrorism towards the nation of Wutai. Hojo Iori, how do you plead?" It was commonplace Wutai, not that he could ever forget that language, the booming voice of his father still coming to mind at his age. But that was not the point— he was stood centre in the room, with his arms bound in front of the supreme court, composed of fourteen judges, the Empress, the Emperor, the Prime Minister, and the Empress’s right hand, with other members of the regalia elite watching with keen eyes.
A man with a red coat and tall hat with curled light brown hair greets you in a polite fashion and introduces himself as Gurdy, a traveler who is requesting your help…for a price.
"You see, I’ve written a new poem—an epic of sorts—and I request your help to solve its mysteries. Oh, often enough, these strange verses pop up in my head in sleep—nothing out of the ordinary for Gurdy! But they are obviously directions of some kind.
"I assume each stanza mentions a place, and to be sure, each of these places is dangerous! I’m afraid I’ve never taken well to sword…but you look like you are a warrior worth their coin."
He attempts to sell you these verses for the hefty price of 10,000 gil, and when it becomes obvious you aren’t the richest of travelers, he gives you an offer that’s hard to resist.
"Fair enough, stranger! We’ll make a deal. Whatever sort of treasure you find at the end of your journey in this—shall we call it—Scavenger Hunt, we’ll split it between us, four parts to one. That seems fair for all your hard work and my humble poems.
"Do you accept the luck of the Clavat?”
Our March event is here! This event requires your character to look through a dungeon to find a treasure at the end. It’s a very special treasure, although Gurdy doesn’t really appear to know that. The Scavenger Hunt is enrollment only, which means that you must let either FFU or the Moogle Workshop know your intention to join! Sign-ups end next Saturday, the 8th of March. Gurdy will give you the details then!
PLEASE NOTE: This is a two-part event. Due to the nature of the second portion, you may NOT partake in the next portion if you do not sign up for the event at this time.
