To Chief Ledwika Alers:

In regards to our numbers rising in regards to those of us who are not native to this city, I have come with a proposal. Many of us are capable of using artes, magic if you will, which could pose a danger to all of us. There is also the fact that there still appears to be apprehension between the two factions, which is understandable given the circumstances.

My proposal would be to find a way to create a system that would promote peace, but also create a law over those of us who are not of this world or dimension. While not disclosed to the masses here, I know the policies of running a country as I am king. Though before anything were to go through, I would like to request an audience with you to find a way to obtain peace and work in harmony. This would be in benefit for both the factions here.

Leadership is absolutely necessary for us and I would take the reigns on this. However, I also believe that your cooperation is necessary.

Gaius - King of Reize Maxia

Chief Ledwika Alers,

My understanding is that you've communicated previously with one alleged king by the name of Gaius with regards to a proposal for establishing a separate government and system of order for arrivals from other worlds. I'd like to understand your side of this, because this whole proposal is alarming on several levels.

Sincerely,

I have prepared a manuscript detailing a number of theoretical advances in biology and physics which are known to my world, but which I can find little if any mention of in local books. While this document may be of some use to you, I must be of the opinion that nothing in it should be treated as gospel. Basic laws may differ between our worlds, and without confirmation, I can at best offer a possible explanatory framework. There is also less practical engineering information than I would like to be able to share-too much of what I know is either missing intermediate tooling needed to create it, or my own knowledge is too incomplete to provide much of use.

I would also like to discuss something else with you, under strict conditions of confidentiality.
OOC Questions: Jacqli might bring up the subject of EXEC_METAFALICA, a spell from her homeland that requires a human sacrifice to create new land, similar to island expansions writ large. She is fairly certain the locals don't need it, but she wants to judge their reaction to the topic before she discloses what she knows about it.

Message:

Dear Miss Cartwright,

I hope this letter finds you well. In regards to the crystal reactions from the night of Daimonia's appearance, I have found six otherworlders in total including myself who experienced the same reaction. Nearly all agreed that feelings of joy or grief were what they felt most often over all other emotions, although one was uncertain and confessed he had not paid much attention but would do so in the future.

Each reported that their crystal grew warm and glowed pink, which is what alerted them to the reaction in the first place.

I did not ask about specifics regarding which emotion they felt aligned them with Daimonia, but most seemed to indicate they had grieved deeply. However, two also mentioned they were able to find many joys to balance it out.

I do not know if asking them for more detail on their experiences would help, considering how personal it would likely be. If you think those details are necessary, I would be willing to ask if anyone would volunteer the information for research purposes, but I do not know how reliable it would be unless everyone participated.

I will write again if I find any others or get any other information.

Sincerely,
Shun Aonuma

To: Lindsy Cartwright
From: Shun Aonuma | [personal profile] x_ed
Date: 4/8
Message: Miss Lindsy Cartwright,

I am sorry for the wait between letters. Although I have attempted to research the Arehtei further, there has not been much luck with the volunteers who agreed to try keeping journals and focusing on certain emotions. This may be due to having only a few willing to test it; I may look into putting up a job posting in the near future.

However, I have observed a few things about the Arehtei during their visits, and I wondered if you would have any thoughts on them.

Firstly, each of the Arehtei we have seen so far seem to have dark markings on their bodies, almost like some sort of corruption. Considering how different their appearances are otherwise, it seems strange for them to each bear the same mark. I believe this may tie into the fact that each time they appear in this state, they seem to cause feelings of negativity in Otherworlders associated with them. For Daimonia, it was a sense of grief, and others have reported feeling rage when Sosyne appeared, as well as hatred with Elios. In Sosyne's case, it was also reported that the Otherworlder's crystal glowed dark purple; I suspect it was meant to be Sosyne's color, but the negativity caused it to appear darkened.

Another Otherworlder has mentioned that he heard the voice of Peromei asking for more hope, and that she sounded as though she were in pain. These reports are leading me to believe that the Arehtei may be full of negative emotions, and require strong positive emotions to create balance - which is more easily obtained from us Otherworlders due to our crystals.

But so far, it's only a hypothesis. If you have any thoughts or ideas of how we can learn more, I would be interested in reading them.

Sincerely,

Shun Aonuma

I'm starting to become concerned that my crystal is somehow damaged, defective, or otherwise not functioning properly -- between it failing to exhibit any particular characteristics that others do and the fact that this island reacts extremely strongly to me, I can't shake the feeling. Could I ask for a more thorough analysis than usual this month? Saber has offered to come with, since her crystal appears to be completely functional, for comparison purposes, if that would help.

Message:

Dear Mr. Sergei Taciyon,

[ Oh boy oh boy, she's contacting a person of authority...! How nerve-wracking already. She hopes she's doing this right. ] You may not know me, but I'm writing to you first to apologize for what I have recently done. I have contacted the Arehtei known as Peromei two weeks ago. I have invited her here to take my completed amulet. [ She was helped in contacting Peromei with someone else, but the idea was her own so she thinks she should get all the blame in this. ] I wasn't sure what to do at first, and I thought that nothing bad would happen because all I wanted to do was to share my hope with her. Then someone brought up how Peromei could also cause a lot of damage, and I realized that I made a mistake in contacting her since she might hurt those here.

I believe that she is on her way, but I do not know how far away she may be. She seemed to be completely preoccupied with someone else's despair on this island before I offered her hope, and she is currently in a state of despair herself, so maybe we still have time to prepare. I believe the best way to prepare for her arrival is to gather more hope and send it to her.

I am very sorry for calling her.

Sincerely,

Sanae Kochiya

Message:

Sergeant Taciyon,

Greetings. My name is Lu Meng, a member of the Auxiliary Enforcer reserves. With regards to the potential arrival of Peromei, the Priestess Kochiya mentioned two matters that have attracted the Arehtei's attention. Of the issue on her full crystal and the provision of hope, a course of action is already being carried out. But it is on the second issue that I have concerns on, as the identity to this despairing individual remains a mystery to us all.

If a crystal of one filled with hope is a creamy white, as such is the case for the Priestess, then it stands to reason that one filled with despair would have a crystal that is coloured a murkier shade of white, perhaps even grey. And so I humbly propose that the emotion collection records be opened to inspection by the proper authorities, to locate the person who carries with him or her such a crystal.

OOC Questions: Nope!

Those records are confidential and sealed like every other medical record. It's going to take more than an "assumption" to open them like that.

However, since this is a matter of security, I will conduct an investigation about this. See if you can figure out who it is and get me more concrete evidence in the meantime.

Date: 6/12, after Lu Meng tells her about Junko and plot
Message:

To Commander Sergei Taciyon,

Lu Meng has informed me of the one who is responsible for delivering a great amount of despair to Peromei. He has requested my assistance in preventing her from providing more despair. I believe I have a solution to this, but I believe it will need to be under your review.

[ Well, she might do it anyway because desperate times comes for desperate measures, etc. etc. ]

Progressive Apathy Syndrome is caused by apathy parasites, Exterobus apathes, which from a remote location may consume a human's emotions. Consequently, the individual may neither experience emotions nor have emotion drops formed within their amulet. I believe that extracting the toxin E. apathes secretes and utilizing it to induce apathy into Junko Enoshima will function as a means to inhibit her emotions. Inhibition of her emotions will cut off the primary source of Peromei's despair. With enough time, I may be able to attenuate the toxin to specifically despair, sparing Junko's other emotions in the process. If nothing else, this may be only a temporary measure until after Peromei arrives.

Sincerely,

Naomi Kimishima

Dear Ms. Forsyth

This moment I have set myself to contact you regarding studying the large crystal that floats over this city. The gentleman Gordon Freeman informed me you are the one whom to address concerning matters. Pray forgive this unbiddem introduction. I am Victor S Court. My home, the Duchy of Eternia, houses a similar structure we call the Earth Crystal. I was charged with studying the means to unlock its use for humanity. Like yourself, I became quite the expert over the years. It could very well be I could be of help to you and the city should I be permitted to conduct independant research.

I am not forgetful that I cannot proceed without any sort of consent. I must write you a line or two and see if you would accept my support upon such an endeavour at this time. Upon my soul I cannot think of nothing more honorable than that.

Please reply at your earliest convenience.


Yours sincerely

Dr Victor S Court



OOC Questions: Victor's intending to do honest research, but his real intention is to uncover a means to bring Victoria into Verens. He's deluded, as evidenced from his canon point, and exhibits signs of instability. So if his work on the crystal comes out, more so when, or his role becomes known, I believe Edea wouldn't feel comfortable having Victor around the crystal. So she might say/do something depending on her player. Of course, anything drastic won't happen without approval and discussion. But if there's small scale stuff he can get away with for his 'true research' that can fly under the radar for a while, that'd be grand!

Also if there's anything you'd want to handwaive, please let me know. If Rebbekah would approach Edea or someone from Victor's world for a reference, feel free. It might be a good way to get the "hold up this isn't a good idea" thing out there. whatever works.

Hey Victor!! Sorry about the delay, but it's just CRAZY up here with Chrissie still not wanting to cooperate with us. She's a really stubborn crystal.

But what kind of research did you do back home and what ideas do you have in mind?

OOC: Rebbekah is more trusting of the Otherworlders than she probably should be (and probably gets yelled/lectured at a lot) so she would probably be okay with Victor doing some research, for better or worse. Fortunately, she really would have to do a background check because protocol and whatnot, so she may indeed have to contact those who know him.

Hi, my name is Red. I remembered a while back you put up a task board job looking for help with the crystal when it stated making those symbols around it.

I asked one of the members about letting you take a look at it and she said it was fine. (Her name is Milla by the way)

The only problem is that it's in a language we can't read, but if none of us can figure it out then maybe one of the arehtei will know.

So this isn't an attempt at IC contact, exactly, but I figured this would be the best/most relevant place for this? Astor is going to be doing his spy thing and spending a few days each discreetly tailing Ledwika and Sergei and probably also Rebbekah some time later once it starts sinking in how important emotions really are around here. So basically I'd just like to know how easy/difficult a time he'll have with it and if he'll find out anything particularly interesting in doing so. o7

Hey there! Sure you can inspect! We are totally stumped about ol' Chrissie. She just really doesn't want to give up her secrets. The fact that she might not even be just made of normal crystal is also new for us! Recent data and research is definitely pointing that there's more to this thing than meets the eye, but if it does have tech properties to it, it's none that we're familiar with. We've always known she's old, but to think she could be an actual relic from the past—and still working!

...Well, was working. Still, it's so impressive!

So yeah, feel free to stop by. Just, you know. Don't break it ;)

Hi Rebekkah!

I'm helping to put together a trip to the surface of the world at the end of the month to see how well focusing our emotions into the land will work. I know it's not likely to keep, and I know it's been tried before when Elios took people down below long ago to see what they can do, but I thought now would be a good time to see how it goes to find out if there's anything different!

[ Does this kid ever stop, no he does not. ]

Do you know if there's any research departments who would be interested in what happens to put on file? I'm hoping we'll have people aligned to every Arehtei present. Maybe some people from Empatheias should be present too? I've got a few friends helping me out, but I thought asking you would be a good idea.

Greetings Miss Forsyth,

I have something that might be of interest to you. On a recent excursion to the surface, my companions and I discovered what looked to be a power plant within an old city.

I've brought back some samples, and I'm hoping you might be able to tell me a little bit about them. If it's all right, I'd like to meet with you at your earliest convenience.

Sincerely,

Hey Rebekkah, it's Red! How are you? Is your research going okay?

I wanted to ask you about our crystals. I suspect you or someone you know has done research on our crystals compared to the crystals of people born in this world, but have you ever been given a completed crystal to keep for studying?

Thras thinks there's something special about us, and recently I went to different areas that used to be the domains of the Arehtei to test the land and how hard or easy it was to get anything to grow with our emotions. I found out that while Daimonia and Thras both have cities of people aligned to them, nothing actually grows around them. Except when we took that trip to Elios's old lands, we found small plants growing there.

Life grew with emotions near Daimonia's city, but not Thras's. I think it might have something to do with us, but I'm not a hundred percent sure.

That's why I wanted to know if you've ever had one of our crystals to study. If you haven't and you think you could get something out of having one, I can give you my spare. You can break it or whatever you need to do. Daimonia's said before they contain our "essence"?

Dear Sigrun Eide,

I'm doing okay. Dai left to go up to the island to visit her family a few weeks ago or so and she hasn't come back, so I think she might have business with some of you up there. I know Emizel wanted to ask her something... Anyway, I've been sort of busy because of that, especially since I have to think of what Dai'd want and what she'd say...

It isn't that hard? I know her almost as well as I know myself most d mos most days. She does throw me for a loop sometimes, but she has faith in me, and I would never want to spurn that...

Your elk looks friendly. I met a nice fish when I went to the lake the other day.

[ There is a drawing of a fish included with this—it's actually a very good one, with stripes running along its side. There's some lines sketched out from it to indicate that it glows. ]

I asked the council about it, and they think the local firefly fish population might be changing. They don't usually have stripes like this... I don't think it's a bad thing.

I don't know if I can come by sometime. I asked the council and they said no, of course, and Dai told me we'd talk about it when she got back. This month and the next are probably going to be very busy for me, since Boreas's Sorrows is next month, but maybe I could ask about the month after? I would like to meet your elk, even if you can't meet my fish.

May Daimonia watch over you,
Feofan Katsaros

Message:

Sigrun Eide,

Thank you for the trinket. I don't know when "December" or "July" are, though the beginning of "December" reminds me of "Deca," which is the tenth month on our calendar, and the beginning of Notus. If it helps, I have written an easy way to remember the months:

Ena = First. If you wrote "one" backwards and replaced the "o" with an "a," you would get the word "Ena."
Dua = Second. It's similar to the word "dual," meaning "two."
Tria = Third. A tricycle is a child's toy that has three wheels.
Tessa = Fourth. It sounds like it only has four letters, thanks to the double s: tesa.
Penta = Fifth. It has five letters, and it is the fifth month.
Exi = Sixth. Similar to Ena, if you switched six's last two letters and changed the "s" to an "e," you would get the word "Exi."
Empta = Seventh. There isn't a very easy way to remember this one, so try your best to do it on your own. I have faith that such a stellar captain such as yourself can manage that.
Ochta = Eighth. An octopus has eight limbs, and "Ochta" sounds similar to that.
Ennea = Ninth. The beginning of this month sounds similar to the first letter of "nine," but try not to mix it up with Ena. I know it is easier said than done.
Deca = Tenth. A "decade" is ten years, and "Deca" is the tenth month.
Endeca = Eleventh. It's the tenth month plus one (Ena), so it's Endeca.
Dodeca = Twelfth. The "do" part is similar to "dua," which makes it the tenth month plus two. Hence: Dodeca.

After some thought, I have also decided to give you an easy-to-remember version for our seasons as well. Keep in mind the calendar seasons start while the actual seasons are in full swing, rather than when they actually begin (as I hear it usually starts to get colder at the end of Boreas, despite Notus not starting until the next month).

Zephyras = A word that feels refreshing and like a gentle breeze. It brings to mind flowers in full bloom, though inside Theasthai, we are able to coax that response whenever we wish.
Eurus = A word that is still light, yet gives off a stuffy feeling. It's a season that you wish to spend out with other people due to the warmer weather.
Boreas = Mild and boring, hence Bor-eas. I hear the colors of the trees used to change during this season, but there is not much to see at home in regards to that.
Notus = A chilly, dark word that inspires the sun's early set and the stars' early rise. Like Eurus, you want to spend time with other people, but inside, where the cold will not reach you.

May Daimonia watch over you,
Sophia Katsaros
