Nitori Quest 2 - A Z-Machine Adventure
« on: October 30, 2023, 01:43:22 AM »
>YOU NITORI KAWASHIRO, GENSOKYO’S FAVORITE TINKERER! You are well known as a leading voice in  the field of technology in Gensokyo. Or at least you imagine that you are. You are also an entrepreneur, a necessary thing for funding your work and also keeping yourself fed. You are a respected member of Kappa society, as much as kappa respect other kappa; which isn’t very much at all. You are blessed to enjoy your work, and find your work enjoyable. When you are not actively inventing something, you’re generally restoring something, or maintaining something, or cleaning something. When things get too monotonous, you do enjoy a nice board or card game. You have a taste for music, and like most kappa you enjoy collecting the strange black music boxes that sometimes find their way in from the outside world. Sometimes you’d like to have one every one there is, but that seems to be a virtually impossible order. You’re half decent at sketching as well, if only out of necessity for some of your more intricate works.
>And, you have a project to return to. Perhaps your finest work to date, cruelly overshadowed by various events. Save for one exception that doesn’t really count, as far as you’re concerned, you were the first person to facilitate slipping the surly bonds of gravity and send a youkai into the realms of the heavens above. Not yourself, of course, you had to stay on the ground and do the launch; you sent up Patchouli. Patchouli will of course claim Scarlet Devil Mansion did this first, which is technically true but doesn’t really count when you think about it. …And apparently Yuuka got up there somehow, but that also doesn’t count!
>Regardless! You have finally gotten the baseline money, the time, and the drive to restart the project! Before you only managed to get as far as the Sun, but now, you’re going straight up there as far as anyone ever has! Not only as the inventor, but the explorer as well! …Once the Rocket’s engine is complete. And once you actually figure out a course. And maybe once you get a co-pilot of some kind in case things get nasty. There’s still some work that needs to be done, if you’re being honest. But it’s almost ready!
>You've been hard a work getting things set up for the launch. You've gotten materials you need to put the finishing touches on the rocket, you've scouted out a few prospective assistants, and you've arranged for Chimata Tenkyuu to guide and power the flight. As well, you've gotten into a contest with Scarlet Devil Mansion, who seems to have reignited their own interest in space travel. You've found your neighbors arranged for a festival, which is going on now, and no one told you. As well, you have indulged a worrying amount of money into a potion that has temporarily grown your hair out considerably longer.
>Things are coming together. You'll need to put in some more work getting the rocket ready and chart a course, but things should be ready soon. Currently you and Momiji are going through the festival, looking for something to eat.

> Follow that tengu!

>Momiji leads you deeper into the maze of stands and stalls. The crowds are fairly heavy now, youkai tend to be more active at night, but it's not so bad that people can't move around. You note a fair few tanuki in the crowd, a handful tengu, and and a few youkai running stands of their own. Soon you follow Momiji's nose to the grilled fish stand, manned by a trio of light-haired kappa serving a fairly large crowd with surprising efficiency.

>You vaguely recognize the fish grillers. You can't put a name or description to them, really, but you've seen them around. One or two of the tengu may prick at your memory, but they were probably just visitors from before. Other youkai you note include Utsuho and Parsee at a game booth, Mystia with her mobile stand, that nun from from whole religious war, a calico cat youkai visiting a shaved ice stand, and a tube fox running what seems to be a fortune draw stand, possibly claiming affiliation with the Moriya shrine?

> ...that  she hinted at side-effects,like she should it with any medicine,which is to supe-hair-grow starting from the longest natural hair-growth even if already cut besides affecting all the most external hairs...so if her "her tail is within that it is a better not" but if "indipendent or close then likely a minor growth"
