[001.6] Patrol The Makaran Border

Reverence Core City
3rd Month, 1116



Dear Adventurers,

Thank you for assisting us with the expedition to Makara!

As you know, the Makarans are generally suspicious of non-Makarans, but as a lot of their resources are being re-allocated to help with our expedition, His Majesty King Slough has allowed the ECR to deputise any adventurers willing to patrol the Makara/Sumiregusa border while we get our plan to approach the Eye ready. Just be sure to behave and watch out for any bandits or smugglers - we don't want an international incident on our hands.

Good luck,
Fidaran Maran
Sergeant-At-Arms

[001.5] Obtain Waterproof Gear

The Palace Beneath The Water
3rd Month, 1116

Adventurers,

First, let me thank you for assisting the Kingdom in our quest to defeat the Eye once and for all. We hope you can help us with our tasks and prove to us once more that our trust in the ECR is well-placed.

The boffins at the Oceanic Guild have designed some rather ingenious waterproof outfits. Although no true Makaran would wear them, His Majesty believes that this would greatly benefit you in your perilous journey. Your local liaison has been handed the location of the Oceanic Guild outpost. The Guild is willing to supply you with the gear provided that you are in turn willing to go there to obtain it.

Difficulty: *
Components: Non-Critical
Completion rating added: 0%

Prerequisite: Combined Atk & Sp. Atk of 5 * every batch of 10 suits collected
Brief: Sielba (a Carracosta) - a member of the Oceanic Guild - has invented waterproof garments that can stretch to fit any size Pokémon. The Outpost is a little out of the way but the Guild is willing to donate as many suits as possible as long as there are volunteers able to bring them back to the camp.
Risks: No great risk, although the location is fairly out-of-the-way and navigation may be difficult.
Mission Particulars: This mission can be done with any number of teams, as long as the total Atk + Sp. Atk meets or exceeds the prerequisite.
Next Steps: Comment on this letter stating your intent to do this mission. Once this event begins, you will receive your first art prompt relating to this letter. The prompt will give you details to help you with your submission. On completion by all participants, this mission will be considered finished and the completion rating will be added to the total on the Camp phase journal.
Deviation requirements: Any type of work submitted, guided as above, in any format

[001.4] Get Food Rations

The Palace Beneath The Water
3rd Month, 1116

Adventurers,

First, let me thank you for assisting the Kingdom in our quest to defeat the Eye once and for all. We hope you can help us with our tasks and prove to us once more that our trust in the ECR is well-placed.

As per orders of my King, we have opened up our supply depot to allow you access to our food rations in preparation for your journey. Please feel free to take as you need; however, frivolous hoarding of our supplies may force us to take appropriate action.

We here in Makara believe that there must be discipline in generosity, therefore we ask for your assistance with us in this regard.

Nesmer of the L'Azuli High Guard


Submission Information


Difficulty: *
Components: Non-Critical
Completion rating added: 0%
Requested by: Nesmer
To: L’Azuli Supply Depot
Prerequisite: Eight Pokémon
Brief: The L’Azuli, Makara’s national army, are willing to support their King’s cooperative endeavour with the ECR. To that end, the L’Azuli have opened their supply depot to the adventurers in order for them to secure food rations for the dangerous journey ahead. While collecting rations is simple enough, the quantity of required rations may require more than one team of Pokémon to complete.
Risks: No great risk; however the L’Azuli, like most Makarans, are not openly trusting of those not of the Water egg groups and thus some care must be taken around them.
Mission Particulars: This mission can be done with any number of teams, as long as the total number of participants meets or exceeds the prerequisite.
Next Steps: Comment on this letter stating your intent to do this mission. Once this event begins, you will receive your first art prompt relating to this letter. The prompt will give you details to help you with your submission. On completion by all participants, this mission will be considered finished and the completion rating will be added to the total on the Camp phase journal.
Deviation requirements: Any type of work submitted, guided as above, in any format
Mission Bonuses: When completed, this mission will reward each participating team 100 bits.
Date of Completion: Once a prompt is issued, all works must be submitted before the countdown hits zero on the front page.
[001.3] Secure Fuel

The Palace Beneath The Water
3rd Month, 1116

Visitors,

Visitors to our land welcome! We write to you as urgency strikes Our Kingdom. A disaster of legendary proportions looms over Our subjects, and your assistance is most appreciated.

We have been informed that a supply of fuel must be secured to guarantee that Our fleet can support the trip to the Eye and back. We understand that Our neighbours in Sumiregusa possess the necessary fuel We require to power our fleet. As an international organisation, We believe you hold much sway and therefore We would request that you ask the Council of Sumire to supply us with the fuel in the quantities we require.

Slough R.M.


Submission Information


Difficulty: ***
Components: Critical
Completion rating added: 30%
Requested by: King Slough
To: Council of Sumire, Sumiregusa
Prerequisite: At least one adventurer of the Field egg group.
Brief: The best fuel in Gram is located in Sumiregusa. Although Makara’s neighbour has been in friendly relations for the past century, tensions can occasionally run high - news has reached the Council that Makara is busy building machines designed to confront some threat, and both the council and the upper nobility are understandably cautious. Travel to the capital of Shanna and secure enough fuel to allow as many submersibles to depart from Makara to the Eye.
Risks: While the Sumiregusajin are diverse and delight in visitors from foreign lands, care must be taken to observe traditional customs where they exist.
Mission Particulars: This mission can be done with any number of teams, as long as the total Atk & SpAtk of all participants meets or exceeds the prerequisite.
Next Steps: Comment on this letter stating your intent to do this mission. Once this event begins, you will receive your first art prompt relating to this letter. The prompt will give you details to help you with your first submission. On completion of the first submission by all participants, the next prompt will drop, to help you with your next submission. On completion by all participants, this mission will be considered finished and the completion rating will be added to the total on the Camp phase journal.
Deviation requirements: Any type of work submitted in two parts, guided as above, in any format
Mission Bonuses: If completed before any of the other “Critical” missions, each team in this mission earns one Cu-Pon.
Date of Completion: Once a prompt is issued, all works must be submitted before the countdown hits zero on the front page.
[001.2] Acquire Propulsion Engines from the Maritime Corps

The Palace Beneath The Water
3rd Month, 1116

Visitors,

Visitors to our land welcome! We write to you as urgency strikes Our Kingdom. A disaster of legendary proportions looms over Our subjects, and your assistance is most appreciated.

The Maritime Corps, a research company whom We have bestowed favour in the past, have developed a propulsion engine that We understand can assist greatly in bringing our fleet to the Eye whilst traveling underwater, preventing the storms altogether and preventing harm to Our subjects.

Slough R.M.


Submission Information


Difficulty: **
Components: Critical
Completion rating added: 40%
Requested by: King Slough
To: Maritime Corps Headquarters, Desmer’s Overlook, Makara Shallows
Prerequisite: Combined Atk & SpAtk of 30 * number of engines to be retrieved
Brief: Located at a section of the Shallows overlooking a drop that leads into the Makara Depths, the Maritime Corps are a semi-independent technology company that specialises in underwater propulsion. The King has heard tell of their newest generation of engines, and asks as many as possible to be donated.
Risks: Only the relatively calm waters above and the water pressure around the headquarters below prevent the hardiest of adventurers from reaching the area and retrieving the engines. The engines must be protected from harm - hardy as they may be, damage to them must be mitigated where possible before the mission.
Mission Particulars: This mission can be done with any number of teams, as long as the total Atk & SpAtk of all participants meets or exceeds the prerequisite.
Next Steps: Comment on this letter stating your intent to do this mission. Once this event begins, you will receive your first art prompt relating to this letter. The prompt will give you details to help you with your first submission. On completion of the first submission by all participants, the next prompt will drop, to help you with your next submission. On completion by all participants, this mission will be considered finished and the completion rating will be added to the total on the Camp phase journal.
Deviation requirements: Any type of work submitted in two parts, guided as above, in any format
Mission Bonuses: If completed before any of the other “Critical” missions, each team in this mission earns one Cu-Pon.
Date of Completion: Once a prompt is issued, all works must be submitted before the countdown hits zero on the front page.

Onward

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 18, 2015, 5:48 PM


Annoyingly, it's taken a year for me to update this journal. Probably because I was a bit too preoccupied by a few things:

  • We got married (:devyenakiachi: and I got married in August)
  • We went on honeymoon (across south east Asia)
  • We started collaborating on a large offshoot project of The-IPL
  • We've been enjoying married life.

Married life is strange. All the stuff being married is supposed to do to you isn't really kicking in, and taking care of my wife really hasn't been any more different than taking care of her when she was my girlfriend. We're still bestest friends to each other, with the added benefit of seeing each other every day. The only real change I've noticed happening is in the language - 'we' is becoming more pervasive as a pronoun, because I'm usually thinking for two.

Having said that, I'm every iota as nuts as I was before being married, and instead of being suppressed, the craziness has more or less amplified. This can only be good. Yena-Kiachi's about as insane as I am, and her cockamamie geekery just gives me the freedom to be as geeky as I can around her (this can also only be good).

The year has ticked over quietly - we've been visiting my mother-in-law's place south of Sydney over the last six months and I've used the peace and quiet to brainstorm and plan ahead for the year. Spending the Easter long weekend out in the country, being able to pray in quiet contemplation and move ahead.

So, a year after the last journal, things are still on the up and up. I've taken the perspective of trying to savour the wonder in everything, even the hard things.

Onward we go.

(I used 'we' again. Dangit.)
