Mission Name: A Ghost of a Chance
Required Participants: 2
Client: Boomer, via "Hakaitube"
Levels Needed: Will scale in accordance to the individuals who register.
Requirements: Must be an enlisted member of Hakainushi
Plot Summary: As you are minding your own business, a spherical gremlin with bat-like wings struggles its way through the window, hauling a television monitor as large as himself between both talons. He drops the device on the nearest table, as it is rather heavy, and urges you with a couple of expletive-laden remarks to pay close attention to the message encoded within.
The screen turns on in a fizzle of static noise, then focuses to reveal a dark silhouette, sitting intentionally obscured within an equally tenebrous room. "Members of Hakainushi: the time has arrived at last," the figure announces from behind severely distorted audio modulation. "You have received this message with my utmost confidence, as I have discovered the location of a settlement that will prove relevant to our agenda."
The television flickers again, shifting its displayed image to that of a strange geoglyph, one that roughly depicts some manner of aviary creature. "Local rumor suggests it to be haunted by an evil spirit which influences the former inhabitants to avoid contact with the outside world and engage in cult worship. My sources confirm that they are guarding that which we seek." The image on the monitor warps back to the shadowy presence. "You are to infiltrate and secure the parcel, by any means necessary. I encourage you all to deliberate amongst yourselves and determine who will be chosen to investigate this matter."
The ominous entity lets off a dark snicker before the transmission cuts out.
Due to the malignant influence of a spectral Digimon in possession of a cursed artifact reported to be connected to the Dark Spirits of Disaster, an unmarked settlement has suddenly removed itself from the face of the Digital World thanks to the presence of a supernatural darkness emanating from this relic. Only through the efforts of several underworld connections has the location of this little village been preserved,
To make matters worse, the town's former citizens have been all but completely reduced to a zombie-like state of existence, ignoring all attempts to communicate with them while droning monotonous chants of reverence for the creature responsible for their condition.
Ending the curse is not as simple as retrieving the totem, however: the party must convince the Digimon to undo its evil spell and restore the natural balance, or they must somehow discover a means to lift it without the creature's help. Regardless of what option is taken here, successful retrieval of the artifact will draw the mission to a close.
- Find and obtain the Dark Spirit. Defeating the phantom that is in possession of it is optional, as long as it is obtained. That's it!
- Lifting the curse is optional, but will certainly grant the party a bonus if they do.
Grace Period: None; participants may post at their leisure.
Reward Offered: 15 posts and 9000 bits. An additional 1000 bits if the curse is lifted.
