Quick choice this time folks.
You turn to address Nitori.
[ ] Ask her about Kanako.
[ ] Ask her about the Kappa.
[ ] Ask her about herself.
[ ] Ask her about the Shrine.
[ ] Let her talk.
You turn to Nitori and ask her to tell you a little bit
about herself. She looks like she was about to say something else, but
then stops. She thinks for a moment before answering.
“Well, I’m not very interesting, I think. I’m fascinated by the
machines that the outside world have produced. We’ve managed to,
especially now with the help of the Goddess and her shrine maiden,
re-create a great deal of items that they have on the outside, and
apparently” she gestures at the gun, “some things that they haven’t. I
usually spend most of my time working on my machines and my prototypes.
Hum. . . I like cucumbers. And the color green. And the number 3.14159.
. .” Nitori rattles off pi to the one hundredth digit. “But that’s enough about me, I want to know about y. . .”
“Ufufufufufufufu. . . If it isn’t Nitori. . . Hello, Nitori. How does this day such as this find the one such as you?”
Looking up, you see a girl twirling in the air, floating along next
to the wagon. She has green hair and an elaborately tied ribbon on her
head. Nitori’s shoulders slump and she doesn’t even turn around to
address the girl.
“Hello Hina. Go away, would you?”
“Ufufufufufu. . . How is that to talk to a friend such as me. We’ve known each other for a time that is so very long~”
All this spinning is making you dizzy.
[ ] Greet the girl
[ ] Ask Nitori who this girl is
[ ] Ignore the girl ask Nitori to continue her question.
[ ] Let Nitori handle Hina, Talk to someone else.
[X] Greet the girl
[X] Ignore the girl ask Nitori to continue her question.
She got interrupted, and she had something to ask...
You know, as much as Hina loves humans, I still can't help but
think she'll turn our luck sour if she gets too close. Which is a
shame, because I kind of like her. Give her a greeting out of courtesy,
but shift the focus back to Nitori.
You ask Nitori who the girl is.
“This? This is Hina Kagiyama. She’s the goddess of curses. Most
people around her experience misfortune, because she stores up too many
curses and doesn’t want to let them loose on anyone.”
“Ohoho? Is that any way for one such as you to speak about a
friend such as me? How have I ever brought misfortune to anyone other
“Let’s see, the last time you visited me, my house burned down.
Then I tripped on a rock, then. . .” Nitori continues listing things
for a while, even though Hina seems to have lost all interest in what
Nitori has to say.
“Ohhh? You’re a human aren’t you” Hina floats around the wagon so that she’s next to you.
“You should let one such as myself take away your misfortunes. . .
Ufufu. . .” Hina leans in close, and wraps her arms around your
shoulders. “I really think you’d enjoy it~ Ufufufufufufufu~”
Nitori is still busy listing off all the things that happened the
last ti. . . Holy crap, you can DO that with a llama? You glance to
either side, wondering if anyone else heard this, but decide to say
[ ] Accept Hina’s offer.
[ ] Decline Hina’s offer.
[ ] Ignore Hina and start talking to Nitori again.
[ ] Ask Hina to leave.
You stutter out an acceptance of Hina’s ‘if you know what I mean’ offer.
“Ufufufufu~ Excellent, excellent~ Unfortunately, ones such as us cannot do it in a place such as this~”
With surprising strength, Hina puts her hands under your arms and
picks you up from the bed of the wagon, and begins to float away from
it. For some odd reason, nobody else seems to have noticed the fact
that Hina has picked you up and is now floating away from the wagon.
[ ] Call out to the others
[ ] Remain silent, let Hina abscond with you.
Hey guys, guess what?
>Hina is the leader of the "Nagashi-hina
doll army." This refers to a Japanese ritual of transferring one's sins
and misfortune to a doll (a Nagashi-hina) and throwing it in a river to
be carried away.
Who else do we know that likes dolls?
Enjoy your torture.
I'd be against Hina's character for her to intentionally
harm a human. Also, according to the wiki just meeting her brings
misfortune. We've already taken the hit, so we might as well make the
best of it.
You really do think you should call out to your commrades, but for some
reason you keep silent while Hina flies away with you. As she floats
away from the wagon, she starts spinning.
“Ufu. . . You know. . . You really are quite heavy. . .”
Hina seems to be breathing hard. You make a suggestion that maybe
the two of you should move closer to the ground, given that your feet
are brushing the tree tops.
“Ufufufufu. . . Nonsense, we are almost to the pla. . . Oops.”
You feel yourself slip out from Hina’s hands and begin plummeting
towards the earth. You hit a couple of trees on the way down before you
land, head first on a rock. The world vanishes into black nothingness.
You open your eyes. Looking around, you see nothing that is
familiar. White walls, and a plain white ceiling. Trying to sit up,
your body screams in pain. Nearby a monitor beeps. Wait, Beeps? You
notice that there are electric ceiling lamps here too. Finally managing
to sit up, you realize that this is a hospital room. You look outside
and see that there’s another building outside the window. Your mind
swirls, you vaguely remember something with some girls, and fighting
and. . . There’s this horrible scene of bodies piled up beneath a girl
hanging from a tree. Your consciousness wanes and you fall back against the pillow. The darkness comes quickly.
I will live in Gensokyo. And I will marry a round Youkai woman and
raise rabbits, and she will cook them for me. And I will have a
wagon... maybe even a "jet pack." And fly from location to location. Do
they let you do that?
You open your eyes slowly, the room you are in is tinged in the colors
of the setting sun. Outside you hear a crow cawing. Ahou, Ahou, Ahou.
Your head aches. You move your arm up to see what’s wrong and see that
it’s bandaged. They seem to be fresh. Feeling your head, you feel
bandages wrapped around your head. Attempting to sit up, you find
yourself unable to do so. “Ah, you shouldn’t try to sit up yet.”
You hear a voice, but you can’t see its source. It’s not a voice
you’ve heard before. You can’t see it’s source, and you can’t seem to
turn your head. Your entire body feels quite tired. “You should rest now. I’m still preparing the medication and
rituals. It will be quite some time before they’re ready, so please,
[ ] Listen to the voice, and relax
[ ] Try to turn your head
[ ] Go to sleep
[ ] Talk to the voice.
Your mind is reeling as you body pours in the many painful
sensations, but you decide that it’s more important to find out where
you are and what’s going on. You ask the mystery voice what happened.
“Oh. You don’t remember? Hum. I was hoping that you could fill us
in. One of the tengu found you lying in the woods and brought you here.
You’re lucky your wounds weren’t more serious. I’m curious though, how
did you make it past the Kappa? Ah. . . But that’s not important right
now. You really should relax. I’ll be ready to treat you in a few
hours. So please, just relax until then.”
If one of the tengu found you, that probably means that nobody
from the wagon knows where you’re at currently. That can’t possibly be
[ ] Try to contact Reisen.
[ ] Ask the voice if anyone else was found with you.
[ ] Relax.
[ ] Go to sleep.
Closing your eyes and concentrating on the button behind your ear, you
feel slightly strange. Your head spins slightly before you think you
<AH! . . . Yo. . . . . . But. . . I. . . t>
You can’t quite make heads or tails of what’s being said. You reach
up to feel the button, and find that it’s half hanging off of your
head. Pressing it back on you try again.
<AH! THERE YOU ARE! YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW WORRIED I WAS! WHERE ARE YOU.>
You jerk involuntarily, even though you know she’s not physically yelling at you, the shouted thoughts are still quite jarring.
“Ah! Please don’t move. It’s not good for your. . . Condition. I
promise that I’m hurrying as much as I can. Please just continue
relaxing. It really will be done soon. I promise. . .” You try and relax again and concentrate on the button.
Reisen’s voice is much quieter this time < I was so worried about you. I thought that . . . that. . .>
Reisen falls silent, or at least you can’t hear her voice. Her
voice comes back to you, but extremely small, and sounding quite
scared. <The. . . The others went off to look for you, and none of
them have come back yet. . . I couldn’t help them look. . . I. . . I
should have noticed. . . I’m. . . I’m sorry. D-do you know where you’re
You try to send that you have no idea where you’re at to Reisen,
just that it’s some sort of house, and the style seems to be similar to
<Ah. . . Alright. . . I-I’ll let the others know that you’re alright. . .>
Is it a good idea to let them know about Reisen’s little trick with you?
[ ] Tell Reisen not to tell.
[ ] Let Reisen do as she will.
[ ] Tell Reisen to tell the others to continue on with out you.
[ ] Talk to the voice in the room again.
[ ] Go to sleep.
I want to say the Moriya shrine, since the voice mentioned we got past
the Kappa/Nitori. Nitori was under directions by the Goddess to keep
humans away from the mountain, so only a Moriya resident would wonder
why Nitori had failed.
But, if that was the case, the tengu intelligence department probably would have notified our group by now.
So, it's someone who was aware of Nitori's actions (there fore some
resident of the mountain) but not affiliated with the Moriya shrine. My
guess is Shizuha Aki and Minoriko Aki, the level 1 bosses.
>>16049 Well she doesn't show any outwards signs that she's using it to
communicate so it's still pretty private. The advantage is that should
someone other than Reisen need to talk to us they can use her as a
>>16047 >But, if that was the case, the tengu intelligence department probably would have notified our group by now.
Moriya knows about Reimu's rampage, so she may have called for a
communications blackout amongst the Tengu to limit the possibility of
Reimu picking this as her next target. If we are in Moriya, we have to
let them know that they're friends.
Nitori would probably be able to convince the Tengu, but with our
group in disarray, we shouldn't assume they'll make progress into Tengu
territory anytime soon.
