Well, it’s been an interesting few days to say the least, and to be honest, I don’t really know what’s going on. There’s all kind of fantastical displays of mana manipulation happening around me – I’m beginning to doubt that anything is truly real. Got a phone call, didn’t know who the man was (Jacob, was his name, never met him though), but he offered me a job without any description other than that it would be fun and dangerous, and so naturally I took it. Already it has taken several interesting turns, and I think my gut has steered me in the right direction on this one, despite still having no clue as to where this whole thing is going. Just the other day, some man, entirely made of magic, fell from the sky with terrifying velocity and force. I’m convinced that there is not a single fibre of his being which is constructed of non-mana properties. I don’t understand it, but it’s pretty intriguing to say the least. Even for a human, who often appear to me as small pink animals attempting to look like more than disgusting naked moles, this one is pretty good-looking as far as they go. Mal, I think his name is.
Also, for transportation, which I might mention was pretty unreliable what with all the unidentifiable gadgets whizzing around, the rest of the party made me believe we were going to be traveling via sturdy animals, namely mules. But no, they were MULES, made of many shiny materials that totally shit the bed, as the saying goes. Hopefully they take my advice next time.
Oh, yes! The rest of the team. Well, there’s some little man who goes by the name of Case, who is wanted for something, information which I am not privy to yet, and it’s just eating me up inside… Ooooh, was it murder? Piracy? Video piracy? I have got to find out somehow, and rest assured, I will. Seems to have some kind of “bigger-is-better” complex, what with his excessively large gun and constant jabs at how I should use two hands to use mine. Good kid, but needs a lot of help in the hygeine department.
Then there’s kraehee – don’t know much about her other than that she’s quite small, could probably fit in my money pouch… if I had one. Also, she is crazy sneaky. That could definitely come in handy when attempting to uncover secrets that are eating me up, perhaps certain secrets to do with a “case” I’m interested in… Oh, that was a good one.
There is also a mustachioed man by the name of Vaquero somethingsomething, also not sure what he’s like yet, other than that he can handle a great quantity of liquor and that there has to be some secret hidden behind is magnificent stache… I can’t wait to find out!
Finally, there is Mr. Cohete (spelling?), an endearing yet subtly patronizing fellow who ignored my belief that mules are better than MULES, but I think he’s learned his lesson.
Rest assured, there is a great deal of adventure and danger to come, along with a bevy of things that will undoubtedly belong in a museum.
