Title: Neo Quest
Post by: Neovereign on October 09, 2021, 06:50:33 PM
"A misspelling… Hm, that's fine.
You are… an invader, to put it literally. An outsider, not from this land, nor the outside world beyond it.
You've been sent here with a few objectives.


First, is to cause a significant impact in this world - Gensokyo.


Second, Capture and subdue a particular individual - henceforth known as The Target, for now. As soon as you begin, they will be somewhat aware of your intention towards them. Use that to identify them and their allies, if they have any. Capturing them will allow us to make this all easier for you, so do treat this with higher priority than the basic goal.


Third priority is to make an enemy of the strongest individuals. You may ally with a few we have observed, or regular individuals here, if you find yourself facing difficulty.
You will be updated with further instructions after these are all met.


The laws of this world require the use of predetermined attack patterns for settling disputes. The power of participants is leveled to allow fair chance. You are not required to follow this land's laws, of course, my orders are greater.
Should you need any assistance, advice, or are curious about something you want to try, you may call upon me.

Now, I wish you luck.


You… forgot who you are again? Ah… alright. I've got you.


You are Noe1, though you also go by the name Noel. Our home is a wonderful one, but I'll spare you the details. From being born there, the center of our beings is who we really are, and is tied with our ability. Through our lives, we've understood yours as 'Existence', or manipulation of it. It sounds grand, but that's what we, together, decided on calling it. The usual way you've used this is in influencing another's actions. Of course, if you realize better uses, we'll record them to advise you of later. We've already tried duplicating our world with it, with no results, so it isn't as great as its name yet. Though, it does allow you to easily exist without a solid body, so maybe it is.
Now, actually this time, I wish you good luck."


> You stand in the middle of a clearing near water. A few winged humanoids fly around here, in your more immediate surroundings at least.

"Ah, it seems you have a bit of familiarity with this world. Or at least, this version of it. Trust in that, then. It should help you out some - but don't rely on it. I'm sure things wont be exactly as you feel you recall.
> You examine yourself.
>> Visually, you are an average sized woman in figure - maybe a bit shorter right now - with a somewhat transparent body. No clothing of any kind adorns your figure, nor do you possess any fingerprint patterns. At the moment, your hair would be white if anyone could see you.

> Despite having nothing on you, you do feel something in you.
"That's my medium for there. Its part of you for now. We don't want to be causing a scene directly every time we converse or come to you. I can separate it from you, if you'd rather have it that way, but that would make all of this a bit less smooth.

> You don't remember anyone that close to you.
"Ah, it hurts to hear you've forgotten me too. If we could duplicate your memories and store them somewhere to give you later should you forget, I'd love to use that to help you out more."

> Disregarding the voice, you try to remember who you are.
> ...
> Nothing comes to mind aside from what the voice explained.
> You don't believe you can be classified under most species. You aren't a ghost, nor are you really a human... You're just something that can exist.
> You are sure you're from the same place as the voice, at least.

> You try to recall how to use your abilities and what else you can do...
> Your influence of others actions should be by forcing your existence on or through them. That's something harder to forget, at least. Just doing a bit should be able to give them the thought of doing something, while trying much more could give you direct control of them, as if you were them.
> You don't really... exist, very much right now. So you should be practically unnoticeable to anyone here. Doing the opposite and trying to exist as much as possible would probably be a bad idea, if you're to finish all of your tasks.

"If... you need me to talk for you, I can. It'd just cause confusion if you use my voice instead, though..."

Well, larger too. The other areas of her match just how huge she is, including her wings and long, green hair.

"I could come here myself if I needed. I didn't expect us to find someone who can notice me this soon though... Anyways, you still exist even when you don't have a body. Certain people back home could also notice your existence despite having almost no presence. There's yours truly, of course. Perhaps Evelyn, depending on what you do, and maybe Uni? Right. The primary objective is to cause a significant impact in this world. Do something big that won't be forgotten for a while, for example. The second is to capture and subdue the Target. This fairy isn't it, though. The third was to make an enemy of the strongest individuals. May sound a bit rough to ask, especially if you prefer not to be mean, but I'm curious of their limits and the lengths they'll go."
> "Or... Are they not your friend?" Daiyousei questions. "When you went into me, there was someone or something fused with you. I'm not sure if I could unfuse them, but I could try. Even though a few others did learn it, I invented fusion, so if anyone could do it, it's me."

a ridiculous claim - One I should explain..."

You can just know me as the Goddess of Fusion. Of course, not a literal goddess - they're another thing - just what many come to call me through my displays."
> "So... are you a human?" Daiyousei asks.
> "Well yes and no. I'm of few that have become skilled enough in their ability to- ah, no need to tell so much. Anyways, I shouldn't be out yet. We've got business to attend to. And you've already seen that you can't even separate or fuse me. Don't praise yourself for such an imitation yet"
> "Ah." Daiyousei listens.

"How could you call it something that reaches a similar result? It's like an insult to me. Don't you remember how much I could do? Don't you remember me? You know? Reina. "
> The figure is a tall maiden with long, silver hair. Maybe your partial existence appearance was taking after her a bit. A black top and skirt, but also a hooded capelet with a whitish ribbon connecting it. There appears to be a crystal or jewel of sorts just above her chest. Her sizes beat the fairy's, but her hair is just straight out, compared to part of Daiyousei's being in a side ponytail.
"Before you ask. It's a core. Not a crystal or gem. Not an accessory or artifact. Not my core that makes me function or something, but a core. For what? We'll probably see if you need my help more.

>> You are capable of transforming fully into a humanoid form - save for your eyes, and almost fully inbetween such and your building-sized Dragon form.
>> You are also capable of breathing fire, breathing a cool breath cold enough to freeze water, blowing strong air - not enough to cause any large disasters, but still strong, and spewing a darkness breath. Well, that last one is a lie, and isn't possible as far as you've tried, but Rumia said it'd be cool if you could do such.
>> You also have the previously mentioned Forbidden Knowledge. You believed before that it was your ability to see the future, but it seemed like it stopped at a certain point. You do have more information of the future as of right now, but other discoveries led you to believing that it's Forbidden Knowledge instead.

>> Yes. You think that might e part of your ability though.
>> It depends on the dragon. Most have a mysteriously larger stomach than normal humans, able to eat much more. In this case, the victim would maintain their size. It could be possible to spit them out, but extremely ill advised in humanoid form - their throat would get clogged at least.
>> Imitators, or those who just have the form of a dragon, who aren't actually dragons,  have their normal stomach when transforming back. If that's just that of a human, well... Better hope they're durable.

>> How do we feel about how we've grown?
>> Given we can change between a humanoid form and a dragon form, are we capable of altering the shape of our humanoid form?

>> Are we okay with the entity possessing us using us to pursue their target, and possibly doing whatever they're going to do to/with their target using our body?
>> Are we capable of resisting the entity possessing us?
>> Are we capable of forcibly ejecting the entity possessing us from our body?
>>How many people know we are a dragon or youkai?
>>Do we care?

>>What is the difference between a dragon youkai and a dragon?
>> The inexplicable meta understanding of yourself continues to evade you and stay autological. You cant explain why You've grown, just that you have.
>> You don't think its bad. Its something, but you were expecting more, if you ever grew.
>> Yes.

>> You don't plan to be used in the confrontation, and you have a plan should they show no intention of leaving you when you arrive at the shrine - that is, in a few seconds.
>> Only Rin and Rumia, and you suppose these two, know Youre a dragon. Reimu and maybe others know you're a youkai.
>> You dont care too much. Just a bit.

>> A Dragon Youkai can transform to a humanoid form with ease.  ... Well, you don't know much about Dragon Youkai... But you bet a Greater Fairy Dragon would at least have a harder time getting a humanoid body.
>> "Were here. This is your business, so you can continue on your own." You speak.

Not everyone looks like some one eyed creature, many are humanoid. And you can take a human form too, so surely you can change it!
