Imaginary Vision - The Red Stained Land
<b><span class="underline">Shinjuku</span></b> <i>[Heading into the Armory where Raidou seemed to be currently trapped in, she would see a few things of interest.]</i> <b>Bullets</b> <b>-Nerve Bullets:</b> May inflict Sleep upon target, putting them into sleep until further damage is done. <b>-Plutonium Bullets:</b> Damage done by Gun becomes Heavy. <b>-Sealing Bullets:</b> May inflict Bind on target, sealing their magic away. <b>-Magic Bullets:</b> May inflict Charm on target, stopping damage unto User and with a high chance of helping them instead for 2 turns. <b>Armor</b> <b>Kevlar Set:</b> [Resists Physical/Gun. Weak to Fire/Ice.] <i>A set of extra armor that goes on top of most clothing without occupying too much space or weight, quite simply Kevlar covering the important parts of the body. The modern world's knight set of armor, if those were real.</i> <b>Padded Set:</b> [Resists Physical/Ice/Wind. Weak to Fire/Dark.] <i>Although it looks like regular clothes, they are effective at fending off types of attacks. Conveniently, they seem to be done to fit the person who asks for one, so their normal clothing remains as such if they so wish it to be. It works against dumb and cocky enemies who would assault those seemingly unprotected.</i> <b>Duster Set:</b> [Resists Electricity/Dark. Weak to Light.] <i>Rough looking and closer to what a warrior from the desert would wear plus motorcycle protection armor, this set makes the wearer look like nothing but a scavenger with no sense of fashion, but pure practical survival.</i> <b>Additionally, there seemed to be a scabbard perfect for Penny's Espada.</b> <i>[The pair may take anything or nothing at all. On the other end, back in his respective vehicle, Punk would wait for Penny before they moved ahead. Penny and Raidou only needed to move towards their vehicle to confirm they were ready.]</i>
Imaginary Vision - The Red Stained Land
<b><span class="underline">Shinagawa</span></b> <i>[Archangel would walk closer to Ene and would kneel besides her, trying to comfort her with his hand, protected by a gauntlet.]</i> Archangel: &quot;It's not an easy thing to behold. It is horrible for use angels. Saddening for those who live on. Outright depressing for those old enough to know the world of old. This kind of pain lingers... like a scar. Do not lose hope.&quot; <i>[He would point towards the bay. A hazy figure can be made out in the distance, similar to a massive oil rig. The massive platform was high enough to rival the buildings of old, and some of the towers on it touched the clouds. They may even go past them.]</i> Archangel: &quot;The Cathedral we are all working to build. It'll be like an Ark to save us from this ruined city. A safe haven as we restore Tokyo to its former glory, and then go even beyond that. To purge the demons, and to purge the ones who brought the demons into this world, triggering this tragedy.&quot; <i>[He would look back at Ene.]</i> Archangel: &quot;Hang on to your goodwill and punish spite. Help us fight against the Cult of Gaea and save humanity. I am certain your friends would be glad to have you, at the very least.&quot; <i>[He would momentarily turn to Prima, as soon as he was finished with what she said.]</i> Archangel: &quot;I am grateful you decided to help us. Before, you asked about the son of man who I mentioned.&quot; Archangel: &quot;I am saddened to tell you that him, Yuji Yoshinaga, has died. Not too long ago, him, alongside a friend of his, a young man named Kazuya Yasuo, and our very own Lady Yuka Aoi passed through Roppongi. They were surprised by this powerful demon, Fallen Nebiros, who tried to attack Kazuya. Yuji, being fast as he was, and equally brave, pushed him out of the way and lost his life instead.&quot; Archangel: &quot;God himself was watching him. He knows of his heroic and selfless deeds. I am sure of it.&quot; <b><span class="underline">Ueno</span></b> <i>[Yoshiko would head into the Terminal room in order to register her COMP right away. Immediately she would be greeted by a large room with a very old computer sitting at the end of it, and every wall covered by strange tubes protecting the cables going everywhere, large golden orbs within those same walls, emanating a slight static. Then, comes the voice.]</i> TERMINAL: &quot;Welcome to the Ueno COMP transmission Terminal. Those with valid COMPs may access at their leisure.&quot; <i>[It would be a simple process, she would only need to stand inside the room for long enough for the computer to pick up on her device. In less than two minutes, the old-fashioned screen would go from &quot;Stand By&quot; to &quot;Complete&quot;. Once it's over, the Ueno Terminal appears as an option, but the rest of the list remains empty.]</i> TERMINAL: &quot;You have been successfully registered into the TOKYO Terminal Network. You may now access the Ueno Terminal from any other Terminal.&quot; <i>[Yoshiko having registered herself in the Ueno Terminal, she would find that the only thing standing between the pair and their destination was a large gate waiting to be opened.]</i>
Imaginary Vision - The Red Stained Land
<b><span class="underline">Shinagawa</span></b> <i>[Going up the stairs would be easy. It's just like leaving the subway after going a packed train, and equally packed station. Whether the actual place looked familiar or not to them, it would be unimportant compared to the sight that reaches them. At first, the gate being opened would make way for a blinding light, one from an actual natural source.]</i> Archangel: &quot;I suggest keeping your eyes shut and slowly open them whenever you reach the exterior. Humans always have their eyes by the light of the Sun. Let it not be permanent damage.&quot; <i>[Archangel would stop a few feet away from the main entrance, the Temple Knights keeping their guard up in case of any surprise attacks. Their feet become full of dust as the wind comes from the bay beyond and brushes their hair, passing through the collapsed train lines and bridges. Right through the buildings that once got in the way. There was no sign of life anywhere, and the only sound to keep them company would not be that of cars passing by, but the waves of the sea. Proud buildings reduced to piles of useless rock, and those who still remained up seemed like they had been cut in half; a great impact ruining them. Shinagawa was but a jungle of empty concrete husks. Tokyo was a wasteland, pure ruin.]</i> Archangel: &quot;It is hard to imagine anyone lives here, isn't it? The many you knew are but a fraction today. Look at the constructions humanity put up in decades past. All reduced to naught.&quot; <i>[There weren't any trees, no grass, no flowers. There was no life but themselves and whatever demon may be hiding in the rubble. If they looked hard enough, they may find crushed bones. The sky above was full of horrible clouds; the sun was a dull ball of light behind those.]</i> Archangel: &quot;To live outside is to die. To live at all is to fight. Such burden is too much for many. Because of that, the Temple Knight carry that weight They risk their lives in these wastelands filled with the enemy so others may rest easy, working to one day restore this land.&quot; <i>[Archangel faces the group.]</i> Archangel: &quot;The ideal of the Order of the Messiah is for us all to work together and create a paradise where we all may live and die in peace. You may know that as Eden, perhaps.&quot; Archangel: &quot;You, who saw the world fall into pieces long ago and still remain, are without a doubt sent by the Lord himself. In order to create a better future, we ask for your help.&quot; <b><span class="underline">Shinjuku</span></b> <i>[Punk is not able to find anything about the Terminal. No matter what he did, it would not respond to any input. Instead, it insisted a COMP was to be connected to it before anything happened. That all changes as soon as Penny approaches. It immediately recognizes a COMP. The screen changes to &quot;Stand By&quot;, and remains there for a few moments until the screen goes into &quot;Complete&quot;.]</i> TERMINAL: &quot;You have been successfully registered into the TOKYO Terminal Network. You may now access the Shinjuku Terminal from any other Terminal.&quot; <i>[Without much else to do, they would now have a chance to check out the Armory or go directly into the vehicle, being ready to go.]</i>
Imaginary Vision - The Red Stained Land
<b><span class="underline">Shinagawa</span></b> <i>[Akie would nod and lead her back towards the Entrance Area. Through the corridor of the Hospital and by the shops, the people would give her a quick bow as they pass, not finding themselves capable of uttering a single word. In front of their destination, she would speak to the guards.]</i> Akie: &quot;I spoke with that Temple Knight so they know to aid you with whatever you may need. Shinagawa is small, but we still work under various rules. He will spread the word.&quot; <i>[Finally, she would take Tot inside, revealing a large area with tables all over the place and a large screen occupying an entire wall at the end of it all. This area was used by the Temple Knights to await their calling, and go towards their duty when it comes.]</i> Archangel: &quot;If you wish to see the outside world, then allow me to show you what demons, Gaea and human weakness has brought.&quot; Akie: &quot;Ah! Archangel, are you taking them outside?&quot; <i>[Archangel would turn towards Akie and bow before replying.]</i> Archangel: &quot;Lady Higashi, these girls are of great importance. I was about to show them the sorry state of Tokyo. Their names are Primarina and Ene. This is a clear message from God&quot; Akie: &quot;A message from God...?&quot; <i>[It was clear the young woman didn't get it at first, she was confused, but somehow glad. She didn't have a single reason to doubt the words of this particular Archangel, not that any of them was going to prove to be a liar or a trickster. Her emotions and even thoughts incredibly transparent through her expressions, she would now and then smile at Tot.]</i> Akie: &quot;I can ask about this more later. For now, you should stay with them. Now that we are here, I need to prepare for the <b>Missions</b> of the day, and before then I need to rest myself.&quot; <i>[Soon after, Akie would excuse herself and move towards the corridors Prima and Ene had just been to. Archangel begins walking towards the exit of the Temple Knight Waiting Area and towards the exit.]</i> Archangel: &quot;You may come with me.&quot; <i>[To follow Archangel means to have a look at the outside world. However, the large screen on the back displays many different assignments ready to be taken at once. If they decide to remain and help that is yet another place to check.]</i> <b><span class="underline">Ueno</span></b> <i>[The bartender looks at the Quintus and Yoshiko pair, deciding it was best to butt in.]</i> Bartender: &quot;You mean the little miss doesn't even have demons yet? I can only guess that thing's all new. I haven’t seen similar models in years now.&quot; <i>[He would gesture his head towards the exit of the bar.]</i> Bartender: &quot;Make sure to register your COMP at the Terminal so you can move along the network. Since you're going to the Imperial Palace on foot, rather than coming back all the way, you could instead use the Ginza Terminal to come back here in the blink of an eye.&quot; <i>[He would then turn around and write on a small keyboard of his, updating the Contract Yoshiko had taken before to factor Quintus in as &quot;Gloomy-looking Dude&quot;.]</i> Bartender: &quot;It's a door to the right at the end of the stairs leading outside. You do whatever you want though.&quot; <i>[Such stairs leading toward the surface are in front of the bar itself, making it easy to come and go. At the end of them to the right is the &quot;Terminal&quot; room. Also, on the opposite end of the underground are the equipment shops and various corridors leading to residences. They may go wherever they please.]</i>

<b><span class="underline">Shinjuku</span></b> <i>[It wouldn't take long for the pair to reach a room labeled as &quot;Terminal&quot;, as expected. Going inside, they would find a large room with many, hundreds upon thousands of cables and metal pipes leading to anywhere and everywhere with strange yellow orbs connected to different ends of it all, surrounding the area inside. At the end of the room is a single old-looking computer on, waiting to be initiated.]</i> TERMINAL: &quot;Welcome to the Shinjuku COMP transmission Terminal. Those with valid COMPs may access at their leisure.&quot; <i>[So the mechanical voice says once they enter. The Terminal itself has an USB cable around it, ready to be used.]</i> - <i>[Raidou would check the armory and come to find the different bullets and even protection.]</i> <b>Bullets</b> <b>-Nerve Bullets:</b> May inflict Sleep upon target, putting them into sleep until further damage is done. <b>-Plutonium Bullets:</b> Damage done by Gun becomes Heavy. <b>-Sealing Bullets:</b> May inflict Bind on target, sealing their magic away. <b>-Magic Bullets:</b> May inflict Charm on target, stopping damage unto User and with a high chance of helping them instead for 2 turns. <b>Armor</b> <b>Kevlar Set:</b> [Resists Physical/Gun. Weak to Fire/Ice.] <i>A set of extra armor that goes on top of most clothing without occupying too much space or weight, quite simply Kevlar covering the important parts of the body. The modern world's knight set of armor, if those were real.</i> <b>Padded Set:</b> [Resists Physical/Ice/Wind. Weak to Fire/Dark.] <i>Although it looks like regular clothes, they are effective at fending off types of attacks. Conveniently, they seem to be done to fit the person who asks for one, so their normal clothing remains as such if they so wish it to be. It works against dumb and cocky enemies who would assault those seemingly unprotected.</i> <b>Duster Set:</b> [Resists Electricity/Dark. Weak to Light.] <i>Rough looking and closer to what a warrior from the desert would wear plus motorcycle protection armor, this set makes the wearer look like nothing but a scavenger with no sense of fashion, but pure practical survival.</i> <i>[Raidou may choose any or none at all, they are all free for the taking.]</i>

<b><span class="underline">Ueno</span></b> Louis: &quot;Humans are weak individuals. They would rather hold on to a safe, traditional environment equal to slavery than to overcome by their own power of will. There are, however, exceptional people who raise above.&quot; Louis: &quot;I'll be here, there aren't many places to go in this day and age. Be safe, friend.&quot; <i>[Louis chuckles as he keeps on drinking, completely unaffected by the alcohol, same as Quintus may realize, it truly was nothing but normal alcohol. How it was elaborated, it remains a mystery. Now that he was away, saying goodbye to the peculiar man, the screen with the contracts becomes clearer to him.]</i> <b>CONTRACTS</b> <b>1) For victory's sake:</b> <i>DB Hijikata. Recently, the Chuo Police Department, run by a rogue A.I. was deactivated by a pair of Demon Busters, shutting down the violent robots as well. There is a big chance that some kind of &quot;Energy Core&quot; was left abandoned, which would certainly help at creating new weapons to battle the Messians. Go and take it.</i> (Reward: Room for 1 person.) <b>2) Shinjuku's Demon Hive:</b> <i>Doctor Jun. The Shinjuku Medical Center is crawling with medical supplies we need soon in order to help the survivors of yesterday's assault, as them coming back at all is a testament to their power. However, the building is also crawling with demons. The more you bring, the more I'll pay. There is a high chance of Messians in the area. </i> (Reward: 9.000ћ x salvaged box.) <b>3) Incredible Power:</b> <i>Cult of Gaea. Strange readings are coming from within the Imperial Palace, and nobody knows exactly what this is all about. However, there are many reasons to believe these readings are being generated by the presence of an incredibly powerful object, some kind of armor. Go investigate before the Messians catch wind of this.</i> (Reward: 50.000ћ) ---Taken by Yoshiko Takenomi <b>4) Kinshincho Recon: </b> <i>Cult of Gaea. For some reason, we've lost all contact with Kinshincho, and we don't know if this has to do with the Messian or a powerful demon attacking the area. The objective is simple, merely go to Kinshincho and report back the findings. However, if the issue is resolved, the reward will be bigger.</i> (Reward: Rider set [Resistant to Fire. Nulls Dark. Weak to Ice.] + 60.000ћ if resolved.) <b>Note: You may join in with a Contract that has been taken and is yet to be initiated or pick another one entirely. You need the permission of the ones who originally took the Contract to join.</b>

<b><span class="underline">Shinagawa</span></b> Akie: &quot;Oh! You're from America! I hope getting here was not too much of a problem. I heard from survivors that your poor country was of the who had it the hardest during the demon war.&quot; <i>[She tries to find the words to comfort the girl, as she would probably need them, but decides to move on instead, beckoning the girl to follow her.]</i> Akie: &quot;Let's haste, time is of the essence these days. We all have our goals and jobs to attend to after all!&quot; <i>[Although she was very tired and it showed by the bags under her eyes, her Mana having been emptied out, she tried to retain her amicable smile as she moves toward the exit, hoping Tot would follow her.]</i> - Chief: &quot;If Archangel believes you are not chaotic, then you may leave. I will escort you all the way back myself. I must add too, that there was no lie in the truths you spoke of, even if unbelievable at first.&quot; <i>[The old man seemed to be in disbelief.]</i> Chief: &quot;Truth is, I was a child back then. I only survived because of the help of the Resistance. If you were a part of the same group, then I humbly apologize for it all, but you must understand our worries.&quot; Archangel: &quot;Indeed. We had a very harsh encounter with the Cult of Gaea and their demons for very valuable supplies. It is to be expected they will soon retaliate, and we are waiting for them to strike at our people, fueled with vengeance as they have in the past.&quot; <i>[The Chief would bow at the pair as a sign of honest apology, while Archangel pats Ene on the back, allowing her to relax first. He understands this kind of fear. He had seen it on other humans before. Without much more wait, once they had gotten back to their calmer selves, the Messian pair would lead the pair of girls back up. Taking an elevator, after a few moments they would be back at a series of corridors leading to a main resting area with a large screen covering an entire wall, listing different missions and the people assigned to them, as well as time of departure. Once there the Chief would excuse himself and walk out, and Archangel would speak up again.]</i> Archangel: &quot;Ene's mere presence should be an impossibility, but a welcome one. I do believe that someone such as her is nothing but a good omen, bringing us certain victory on our final aim. Miss Primarina, I get a similar feeling from you. That weapon you have with yourself; it shares the resonance of another son of man, one of great importance to us. It goes beyond that. It is your very heart which resonates with him, like a bond of some kind.&quot; <i>[Archangel would say, slightly confused even by his own words. Regardless, he would continue.]</i> Archangel: &quot;Which is why I want to ask for your help. The people who live with us are in their vast majority but everyday people, trying to live through the hell on Earth that is above. Us Divines and the blessed Temple Knights head outside and gather resources while fending off the demons, as the ones who are old and strong enough work on the Cathedral from the which we will begin anew.&quot; Archangel: &quot;Your help will be rewarded, of course. And you will have the freedom to choose however you will help us if you agree. You may agree now to help us or give it some time. I'm not sure if you have yet seen the current state of the world... but I would suggest you should. It may help clear out any of your doubts.&quot; <i>[Archangel awaits. You may agree to help Shinagawa or give it some more time to decide. He is also willing to show you the current state of Tokyo.]</i>

<b><span class="underline">Shinjuku</span></b> <b>Punk/Penny have accepted Request #1. Raidou has accepted Request #3</b> <i>[Captain Tsukasa would nod once everyone had made their decisions and move his hand towards a series of vehicles. The first one was a regular car from old, damaged but still working. Next was larger truck, and finally a pair of vans, the first one grey, the second one a pale green. In order, each one would take them to their respective missions and locations, from the first one up to the fourth one.]</i> Cpt. Tsukasa: &quot;If you've decided already, just approach the one that will take you where you wish to go. Additionally, I would suggest checking out the armory and registering yourself at the Terminal if you have a COMP. By registering in different Terminals, you'll be able to reach places in no time, the only problem being of course, you need to do that manually. Some notable places with such Terminals are Shibuya, Ginza and Shinagawa, although there's more too.&quot; <i>[The Terminal would be located in the underground, past the flower shop and past the stairs that lead deeper underground, where the supplies are being taken. Additionally, there's an open truck filled with different sets of armor, guns, and melee weapons for them to check out. If they were otherwise ready, they simply needed to approach their respective vehicle.]</i>

<b><span class="underline">Ueno</span></b> <i>[The man crosses one leg over another, pressing his thumb and index on his chin, curious about something, but not yet speaking about it.]</i> Louis: &quot;You're correct about something. For as long as all this conflict exists, for as long as the ideal of Law persists, no one can truly be free, especially if He still lives. Despite that, I find Ueno a relaxing spot.&quot; <i>[He reaches to his glass and finishes the drink, pouring some more for himself.]</i> Louis: &quot;I knew you were going to ask about something like that. That's why I offered you a seat and some of this magnificent drink. You may find you'll need it.&quot; <i>[One more sip from his glass before he adjusts himself on his seat. He stares at Quintus straight the eye, with a very subtle smile all over his face. His hands are together, his fingers intertwined, his thumbs tapping each other at a constant rhythm.]</i> Louis: &quot;Just in case. This dimension you speak of is a part of the Expanse. It was the Diamond Realm, a place with a spiritual energy so powerful only gods or highly enlightened individuals can ever access. Consider yourself lucky you ever aid your eyes upon it. Now... as to how things go this way...&quot; Louis: &quot;After the bombs fell over Tokyo, ordered by the followers of Law and the button itself pressed by the Americans, peace followed for a short while, the world believing the demons had been eradicated. But soon enough, they began appearing all over the globe, summoned by all types of people in many ways, even through secret government experiments. This sudden flow of incredible power at the hands of anyone that could use it led to a devastating war, of such scale that by the time the 2000s came, civilization as once known had but completely crumbled into pieces.&quot; Louis: &quot;Have you seen how the surface looks nowadays? You'll find that most of the world looks like that. It's a miracle some forests and drinkable water still remains.&quot; <i>[After each long piece of information, Louis would drink more to maintain his own throat clear.]</i> Louis: &quot;Since the bombs fell, it's been exactly 30 years. And for 30 years, Law and Chaos have battled for dominance in this city. Just yesterday, the Temple Knights raided one of the Gaean warehouses which housed many medical supplies meant for worthy warriors we cannot afford to lose. In the battle, the guards were completely overwhelmed, and almost no one was spared, not even the young ones, not older than 14. I heard the higher ups are cooking up a plan to get back at them in... two days from now. A lot of contracts today are focused on gaining power, after all.&quot; <i>[The man chuckles, wondering how he would take this much context to the current state of affairs.]</i> Louis: &quot;Welcome to the year 2022, friend.&quot; - <b>Yoshiko has accepted Contract #3.</b> <i>[The bartender would almost flinch at the girl's sudden scream. He would close his eyes and walk closer towards her, slamming the palm of his hand against the counter.]</i> Bartender: &quot;You don't need to yell here!!&quot; <i>[He then picks up a wet glass and dries it up with a small piece of cloth.]</i> Bartender: &quot;...You only need to report back here with proof you completed the contract. The people who make these have to write out very numerous and specific conditions as proof it was the case, so we'll always know if you are telling the truth or if you're bullshitting us. To put it bluntly, tell me you're done, and I'll pay you. It's pretty official.&quot; <i>[After that, and the other group staring at her like some kind of weird animal, they would all return to their routines.]</i>

<b><span class="underline">Shinagawa</span></b> <i>[Akie giggles yet again, Tot moving on to the last of the man's open wounds. It wouldn't take long for her to be completely finished with it however, as the gunk covering it was less so than the chest, even less than the cut off foot. Being ready, Akie directs her hands filled with a gentle light near the suffering man, using Posumudi to eliminate the remaining toxins within his body. It would take a few minutes at first, as it had extended all over the man's body, barely clinging to life thanks to the healing priest. The absolute focus would then turn into relaxation, taking a step back from the man. The priest would make their healing magic even stronger, not completely revitalizing the man who, were it not for the open wounds, would look like he had been given another chance. Akie takes a seat, exhausted and with her hands shaking. The nurse nearby would focus on bandaging the man now.]</i> Akie: &quot;I'm glad... that was the last one...&quot; Priest: &quot;Thank you so much, Lady Higashi. Healing over a dozen badly injured men is no small feat. You didn't have to... I wished we could repay you.&quot; Akie: &quot;It was my duty, there is nothing to thank me for. Instead, celebrate and rejoice with those around you, for the lives saved, and for the sake of those who are no more.&quot; <i>[Although other men were still clinging on to life, most were finally receiving their much needed treatment at the hands of priests, volunteers and even angels. It wouldn't take long for any of them to be stabilized. As such, the priest bows at the pair and moves closer to the wall, trying to rest and regaining their energy be they continue. Akie smiles, looking at Tot.]</i> Akie: &quot;I must thank you again, Tot. Working as a volunteer is no easy task... and I see that you have also had your fair share of struggle on the outside.&quot; <i>[She keeps her legs together, and rests her hands on her lap.]</i> Akie: &quot;I do my best to welcome any newcomers to Shinagawa, and as such, I would like to meet your companions, to give my greetings and bless your every actions. What is their name? If you don't mind me asking yet again. If you don't know where they are, then with their names, I can find them.&quot; <i>[She giggles again, moving a strand of hair behind her ears.]</i> Akie: &quot;Our little capital pales in comparison to the cities of old. We all know each other~&quot; - <i>[The Chief seemed confused, incredibly so. He knew Ene was telling the truth, but it was also that she said something completely impossible.]</i> Chief: &quot;That's impossible. No one reaches the old age in the Gaean territory, they are all dead before they hit 40, if they don't kill themselves past that. Is this some kind of trick? It must-&quot; <i>[His confusion grows as the Archangel raises his free hand.]</i> Archangel: &quot;This child...what was her name again?&quot; Chief: &quot;...Ene, sir.&quot; Archangel: &quot;I see. If that's so, then the interrogation has finished.&quot; <i>[Before the Chief can object, Archangel himself would walk towards the girls and undo their cuffs, allowing them to move freely. Right after, he would flip a switch, revealing the true image of what looked like a void room. At the middle, there was a desk with one chair for the interrogator to use, and behind them, a large mirror, which no doubt hides a room where all their words are being evaluated.]</i> Archangel: &quot;What she says is correct. I met a young child of blue hair and pigtails who alone made her way towards Ikebukuro, bravely so, in the height of the original demon infestation... 30 years ago, in the very same day the bombs fell upon this land. I do not know how she survived, but the lives she saved that day made even today's victories possible. They were the family of Lady Higashi, after all.&quot; <i>[He smiles.]</i> Archangel: &quot;It has been a long time, friend. Although I ignore how you saved your life, I'm glad you did survive. Surely, your return on this day is an omen of fortune and victory. A true miracle.&quot;

<i>[And so it happens once more, they are all called to one place, like something deep within wants them there, no matter what. This time, it was in the middle of Shibuya Crossing. The people were busy walking towards their destinations, and the cars wait for the red lights to end so they can get through too. In the middle of the street, there waited a man in suit and hat; his hair was a messy brown and he lacked a mouth. His posture, so calm and yet so still raised no worries. No cars would question him being there, and the people didn't even notice his existence. Indeed, Melbourne would not allow that to happen as he waits for his participants.

<i>[Their mind was set, they were to go back to the base and finally figure something to do in the incoming disasters. Some had gotten there first; such was the case of Rowan and the people he had saved back in Yongen-Jaya, but later on, Tatsuya and Raidou would get back with a group of injured people, including Yuka's father. Rowan had gotten there are around 05:30pm, meanwhile the other two had gotten there an hour later, at 06:30pm. It was now about 06:45, and the civilians were finally getting some quick treatment thanks to Yuka's father quick actions. It was interesting to note however, that only these three had made it back, with everyone else completely missing; not even some info had gotten back from them.]</i> So that's the situation on the others, we had calculated more or less when they were supposed to get back but...nothing, so we may have to fear the worst for now, as we must keep moving. <i>[Would say the Resistance Man. All three of them were back at the main conference room they were using to give their debriefing. While patients were getting treated, and Boss and his friends were finally resting and eating rations, a single mature woman would be crying awfully, with such desperation that it just became one with all the other people in grief.]</i> Still, there is one pressing issue and that's the fact that demons are gathering nearby. We've had some people scout the area and we've learned that a creature wearing a large, black robe and holding a giant scythe is getting them to do this... and interestingly, he's riding a horse, a quite pale one. If I didn't know any better, I would refer to him as some kind of &quot;Horsemen of the Apocalypse&quot;, and...at this point it may be just that. <i>[He would point to the North on the map.]</i> They are definitely going to attack, some weaker demons have come before and their numbers are increasing, so I can tell you now we will not survive a full-scale attack. So, our options are these. <i>[He would then point to the West, a specific way that may take them a place faraway.]</i> We will get civilians on trucks and only get within them a handful of soldiers to make guard. Meanwhile some of us will stay and get enough time for people to get ready, get out and get as far away as they possibly can before we get overrun. Still I believe we can win., no matter what. Our leader Yuka is with us and went off to deal with Thorman just 40 or so minutes ago with that kid Kazuya. I can believe we can do this because they defeated Gouto's forces. <i>[After this, he would take a sip from his beer.]</i> The operation will begin in 15, perhaps 30. We are already preparing and... The question now is… what will you do? You are certainly strong, but I cannot ask you to stay here and possibly lose your lives. That &quot;Pale Rider&quot; is certainly the main guy in that small army, but the most dangerous part of all this is the incredible number of demons around. Whatever happens, whatever you decide to do, even if it is going inside the trucks. ... Good luck. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- <i>[Tot and Penny had finally made it back to the Imperial Palace, which meant that they were something around an hour before they get back to the base. They had met not a single demon on their journey, and in fact the streets were getting cleaner, as if the demons, not finding any other humans, had turned to eating each other or even eating the rubble and garbage. The path ahead is still long, and it is possible they feel a tad more rested.]</i>
Imaginary Vision - The Pale Cloud Above and The Diamond Realm
<i>[Perhaps out of curiosity, clumsiness or a general desire to survive, you have taken the path of the &quot;Safe Escape&quot; at different spaces, and at different times. Despite this detail, they have all managed to get here at the same time. This realm, and different plane of existence entirely, is completely white with a light blue shade to it, with hints to a darker blue. The walls are made from a shining diamond, to a crazy extent. As they head inside, they feel a sense of inner peace. Of course this only lasts a moment, as they are reminded of the situation at hand.]</i> You've arrived, I see. <i>[A man in white robes, long hair and a large staff awaits them.]</i> Primarina, Spell Punk, &quot;Ene&quot;, Quintus. <i>[The room itself had nothing but one door at the wall to the front.]</i>
Imaginary Vision - The Pale Cloud Above (Night Mode c: )
<i>[A strange man is waiting inside of the underground mall of Shinjuku. He is reading a seemingly old book; looking closer, you may be able to tell the name of the book is &quot;The Alternative&quot; by a man of the name Lester P. Melbourne, a sort of strange set of words pull together. This man, too, is strange, for he has no mouth, and his eyes can pierce even that beyond the stars. The people are purposly avoiding this man, and there is no reason to question such actions.]</i> It's about time. <i>[He says with no mouth, and no one seems to be able to hear...but you, the chosen few, the newcommers, but most of all, the Survivors, the three sacrificial lambs. He sits there, waiting for the moment to come, in which they will all gather by their own free will, in front of him.]</i>
