    Well, it's nice to know that they'll have a supervisor. Who knows what Elan and V would get up to without Haley to help them?

    Well huh. Didn't see that one coming.

    Does this mean V's now 15th-level?

    Hey, the dagger was useful. That's kinda cool.
    I use black for sarcasm.


    Call me Rose, or The Rose Dragon. Rose Dragon is someone else entirely.

    If you need me for something, please PM me about it. I am having difficulty keeping track of all my obligations.

    Let's hope Roy understands the message... It's sidequest time! Sidequest that will hopefully advance the main quest, somewhere along the line.

    Guess V's plan was to alert Roy to their abduction. I anticipate that Roy will attempt to beat up the Linear guild to get his party back or he will explain the situation.

    First thought: shiny pink letters!
    EDIT: After reading it a second time, I have to ask; how does Haley know what the poster says?

    The improvement is that a paralyzed V and an unconscious Elan will not be alone and imprisoned in a strange country. Haley found a way to alert Roy while still protecting Elan and V.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    Can't some random NPC happen by and fancy a nice dagger and free poster?

    I suspect not, because of PLOT!

    I am simply bringing up it has a possible way to look at things. Because when a person decides what to believe, they should be aware of all sides of the subject. I don't care if you believe a giant pink rabbit created the universe, just be educated in making that decision.

    She is going to be just as incapacitated in no time.

    Haley made a mistake. Coming from being separated all that time in Azure City, its not without reason.

    She won't be incapacitated if she doesn't try to escape. She's going along with them specifically so they don't knock her out. They'll tie her up or throw her in jail or something, and she knows she can escape most bonds and pick most locks.

    It's only a mistake if it doesn't work.

    Well, Roy is happening by in an hour, and the streets seem abandoned (because it's the middle of the night).

    So, yeah...Plot.
