    "Drinking coconut juice. Maybe doing some target practice?" Sappeerel suggests as she starts shimmying up the coconut tree again. This time around she swipes her sword through the whole cluster of coconuts, sending them all thumping into the sand. Once they're free she hops down. "We could explore the island a little bit? Or just relax on the beach. Or I guess I could send some invites to some of my siblings? Do you have any friends who you could invite to the quest?"

    It's also possible that someone might suddenly pop in all on their own.

    Honestly...

    Lapis is kind of glad that it takes this long to find five Aspirants for a quest.

    That means the Nexus isn't crawling with people like her.

    Which... maybe it's wrong to think that's good but most of the other Aspirants she's met so far haven't been very nice. Especially the ones that didn't go through apotheosis.

    Most of them treated people like things instead of people and that just doesn't sit right with her.

    "I had about ten seconds' notice that something bad was going to happen. I'm sure your eyes are good enough to know I'm not exactly in shape to be fighting off much of anyone with muscle even if I had a club on me." Codebreaker barks back at the vampire.

    "Maybe? I don't know, it's just what my uncle has taken to calling it." Arthfael shrugs. "Could be. We're vampires, we already have at least one celestial event tied to us. I wouldn't be surprised if this is, too." He shrugs again. "Anyway, it's this thing that happens every few weeks. My sisters suddenly get really hungry for blood. Like, 'oh my gods I am literally starving' levels of hungry. I'm not exaggerating; we've all had the experience of starving almost to death, and from what Siana tells me, it's almost exactly like that. They aren't actually starving, though, it just feels like they are. Very painful, very frightening, very unpleasant." He scribbles something on his sketchpad. "So, yeah. My sister probably tried to take a bite out of you to alleviate the pain. Nothing personal; I get the impression she actually likes you quite a bit. Like a chill uncle or whatever."

    "So you're saying this is...cyclical? Consistent?" From his tone, the implication is likely obvious.
    If it's consistent why the heck didn't anyone think of this when a blood-having mortal offered a room?

    "Cyclical, yes. Consistent, no." Arthfael replies unhelpfully. "There's a couple days' variance in there, makes it a little difficult to keep track of. I expect uncle Kyrie thought there was more time between the last Blood Moon and this one than there really was. Not that I blame him; we've only had to deal with three so far." He taps his pen to his chin as he thinks about this. "As for your fusebox... that sounds like the kind of thing Owena would do. She knows you can see in the dark better than any of us. With that kind of advantage, it wouldn't be too hard for you to escape, or at least avoid them until help could arrive."

    "Yeah, but that doesn't help when Siana is ten feet away and can hear me just fine because I have no cardio." Codebreaker groans, slapping his forehead. Why couldn't she have just tripped Siana? It wouldn't have been that hard since she already has one bad leg.

    "I wouldn't worry about that." Arthfael shrugs. "This is usually a one-night thing. And once my sisters are back to their senses, they'll talk my uncle down. Besides, if he really was set on killing you, going to a hotel wouldn't help." He says this with a tiny smirk, apparently finding that little detail humorous.

    Codebreaker shrugs.
    "Yeah, but that was a clean teleport. It'd take him at least an hour for him to track me down even with magic. And then I'd have Atreyu here. I'd like to see Kyrie get past him."
    Even if it would probably be pretty great to see a vampire werewolf knight fighting a regular werewolf druid, he'd rather not instigate any deathmatches today.

    "Contemplate our place in the universe?" Arthfael shrugs. "You're asking the wrong guy. I just live with the crazy people." He glances over at a and has an idea. "You said you needed quartz for your friend here, right? I'll just go and grab that for you real quick. If you could, ah, tell me where it is, that is. And if you don't mind the possibility of having an angry werewolf-vampire-knight following me back out here."

    Selekhael keeps drinking the coconut juice and waiting. It's nice and warm here, she wouldn't mind just sunbathing for a while. She lies down on the warm sand and closes her eyes. "At least it's, uh, a nice place to wait." Of course if nothing happens, she might end up falling asleep here.

    There's a pop as someone else turns up. Pretty sure neither Lapis nor Selekhael has met them before, but I might be mistaken. She appears as a half-elf, with brown hair and skin the colour of polished oak. Her eyes are a deep green. She's wearing denim jeans and a black shirt, but she's barefoot. She's wearing a fair bit of jewellery; there's a ring in the side of her nose, and her pointed ears have mismatched piercings as well. She waves at the other two.

    Alas!

    It looks like Selekhael's nap just isn't going to work out.

    She tried! But then the queue found someone else hunting for a quest.

    Sappeerel perks up immediately when another aspirant appears!

    "Oh, hi! Wow your rings are really pretty, I love them!" she says cheerfully, waving back. "Mishnehel? Oh! You haven't even got any guns yet! Did you jump right into a quest without doing the tutorial first?"

    Is that bad?

    "Don't worry too much that isn't bad! You can learn stuff as we go! But we'll need to get you some guns first!" the seraph says as she hops to her feet and goes running down the beach to retrieve-!

    The coconut crab that had fallen on her face earlier.

    She comes jogging back, the wriggling crustacean in her grasp.

    "Sorry Mister Crab but Mishnehel hasn't got any guns yet so we need your help," she explains to the crustacean as she sets it down in front of Mishnehel. "Killing critters can get you items and things like guns, but it's kind of mean so mostly I try not to do that much. I was kind of thinking about trying to eat this crab anyway so..."

    Poor Mister Crab.

    "But before you do that you should pick a class! You'll need one of those for the quest."

    Selekhael sits upright quickly. "Oh, uh, hi?" She gets to her feet in time to see Sappeerel saying that Mishnehel should kill the crab. "Is that really the only way to get more guns outside the tutorial?" That's also where she got three of her talent points she spent for upgrades. Killing animals for them just seems needlessly violent.

    "I mean, I didn't really have any lying around. I was going to go to the curio shop and buy some. But I did have plenty of salt at home. Salt is crystals. Some of sand, too actually. But just giving Them sand doesn't seem like a fitting offering."
    Of course if it was urgent they could probably break into the shop but it seems like a will be fine for a few hours.

    "...Salt." Arthfael frowns. "So you're saying any old crystal would do?" He reaches into his pocket and pulls out a ring pop, still in its wrapping. "Such as, say, something like this?" He found it a little bizarre that candy would provide a compelling tribute for a spirit of a's apparent caliber, but he was thinking that as a vampire that was the offspring of a demigod from a dying world, so maybe "bizarre" is a bit of a relative term.

    ”…That’s not a crystal. That’s sugar molded into a fun shape for children. My patron surely has some standards here.”
    Though he is happy Arthfael can have candy at least. He wasn’t sure with vampires.
    He can certainly relate to not being able to have things.
    He still despairs about losing the ability to have chocolate.

    "Whoo-hoo, look who knows so much." Arthfael grumbles. "Yes, of course it's just sugar molded into a fun shape for kids. But if you were willing to consider salt for its shape, sucrose should also be acceptable. If you gotta grind it down first, I'm sure there's a couple good-sized rocks you could use." Thankfully, Codebreaker hadn't asked him why he had a ring pop in the first place; he was getting a little too old for novelty candy like that, at least in his own opinion.
