Good Morning Star
The party purchased a custom iron ball. Daetta appeared before them, bearing a stuffed animal. Daetta claimed that the iron ball was actually hers and requested that it be returned, but it later became apparent that she was mistaken. Now that Daetta bore iron ball that matched those carried by the party, she decided that this made the party her “friends” and she joined with them in their travels.
The party dropped into a village and purchased some rare weapons that were shown to them by an antiques dealer.
Vyrn: Right, right! This iron ball was made by a famous workshop! We are pretty savvy shoppers, aren’t we?
Katalina: Ah. The works of Gauka are famous in that field. They are said to be very rust resistant, and the spikes don’t wear down.
The party was quite excited about obtaining such a rarity. A girl there glared fixedly at it.
Lyria: Hm... You know, I get the feeling that it’s watching us...
Vyrn: Huh? That girl? Hm... I definitely feel someone’s gaze.
Katalina: Hm? So that girl is carrying a stuffed animal... How very different...
Vyrn: Hmm? Is she coming close?
Rackam: What’s up, girlie? You need us for something?
???: That’s my iron ball! Give it back!
???: It would be awful if you did as you pleased with it, and turned it into a mace or something!
???: It is extremely rare in these parts! The very idea of you fools stealing my one and only iron ball!
Daetta: I have the receipt for it! It is inscribed with the same serial number engraved on the iron ball! Either give it back or get outta here!
Rackam: Hey... You haven't given up already, have you?
Katalina: Yeah. We would also feel pretty bad if this were actually stolen merchandise.
Katalina: I think we should return it to its rightful owner.
The party compared the serial number engraved in the iron ball with that written on the receipt that the girl had whipped out. But...
Daetta: It’s not the same...
Daetta: It’s not mine. I’m sorry for suspecting you.
Lyria: Hm... Is that girl all right? She looks so very sad...
Katalina: Let's move! We have to go after her. We can’t just leave her like that.
Lyria: Me too! Let’s help her look for her iron ball!
Vyrn: That's right! If we turn a blind eye to that it will ruin our rep! Right, (Captain)!
Vyrn: Hey! Hey girlie, wait! We wanna help you look for it too!
Daetta: Is that so... However, I have no idea where to look for it.
Vyrn: Leave it to us! If you have an inquiry about such things then the Knickknack Shack is the place to be! Siero knows pretty much everything!
Outlaw: Trip, my ass! Get off me!
Guard: Damn you...! Behave yourself! Thief!
Sierokarte: Ah, yes! You are the owner of the iron ball, yes! I’ll give it back!
Vyrn: Huh? It’s already been settled?
Sierokarte: And guess what! I took care of it. I acted like I was making an appraisal and then called for the guards.
Rackam: Whoa... As ever, you’re quite the clever one.
Sierokarte: Trust is the lifeblood of a merchant. I cannot be handling swag.
Katalina: However... How did you figure our that was stolen?
Sierokarte: Hahaha... There’s no pulling the wool over my eyes!
Daetta: You really helped me. Thank you.
Katalina: What’s wrong...? Why the long face?
Daetta: Um... There’s only one that I like...
Daetta: I thought I was so special for getting such a rare item... But you have one from the same workshop... I guess I’m not so special after all...
Lyria: But but... Is that such a bad thing? Yours matches your friends’ one! That’s pretty snazzy!
Katalina: Aren’t we? We overcame a difficulty together. I have no objection to calling you my friend.
Daetta: That’s right! Matching your friends is pretty cool!
Daetta: I’ve decided! I’m going with you! We will fight in battles with our matching gear!
Vyrn: Hey hey... Are you serious?
Choose: She looks promising.
- She looks promising.
- Travel by airship is rough.
Daetta: Leave it to me! I’ll rampage through your enemies with the iron ball on my receipt!Choose: Travel by airship is rough.
Daetta: Now this is where I wanna be! My answers also went on difficult journeys wielding iron balls!Continue 1
Vyrn: Haha. If it’s OK with (Captain) then I also approve! Welcome aboard, girlie!
Katalina: Well, whatever the case, that stuffed animal on your head is happenin’. I like its fluffiness.
Lyria: Haha, yeah, it really is pretty cute!
Daetta: Hehehehehe! Okay then, I will tell you where they sell such plushies! And then we can all have matching plushies!
Katalina: H-Hey! Let go!
Vyrn: They ran off... Shall we go after them? Eh, (Captain)?
Thus the young lady bearing a stuffed animal befriended our heroes and joined them on their journey.
The girl had joined the party for rather frivolous reasons, but with her brilliant handling of her iron ball she would prove to be greatly beneficial to the party.
Crew's New Star
The party listens to a traveling bard's song at a tavern inside an inn. Deeply impressed by the bard's performance, Daetta tries to imitate his singing. When Lyria notices her singing, Daetta hurriedly leaves the tavern. The party worries about Daetta when she doesn't return for a while. Then suddenly, the village is invaded by monsters.
The party has dinner at a tavern. A traveling bard sings a song beautifully, and the people in the tavern are moved by his performance.
Rackam: Whoa! I'm impressed!
Lyria: Yeah! It was such a great song! Don't you think so, Daetta?
Daetta: La la la la la!
Lyria: Hm? Is that the song the bard was just singing?
Daetta: Wha...?! I-It's nothing! I was just thinking about something!
Lyria: Ah! Oh, you liked that song? Me, too!
Daetta: Ugh!!! I-I forgot something in my room! I'll be right back!
Lyria: Hmm... Daetta's not back yet... I wonder what happened...
Katalina: She said she's going to her room, but... I'll go check on her.
They all search for Daetta. But there is no sign of her.
Lyria: Ohh... Daetta... where did you go...?
Rackam: Hey now... don't tell me she went outside by herself.
Man: S-Somebody! Come help!!
Katalina: Let's move! It's coming from outside!
Vyrn: Agh! Monsters?!
Rackam: This is bad! There's a lot of 'em! What have the guards been doing?!
Rackam: Geez! Hey! Daetta! Where are you?
Daetta: Why you...! Where did you all come from?!
Vyrn: There! Come on, (Captain)! (Captain)!
Crew's New Star: Scene 2
Daetta told the party that she would like to sing like to sing just like the bard. They tell her to give it a try, but she says she's afraid that they'll laugh at her lisp. She decides to try and sing after being encouraged by the party, but is interrupted by another monster attack.
Katalina: Well... Looks like that's all of them...
Rackam: What's with those monsters... You okay, Daetta?
Lyria: Hey! I was worried about you! You disappeared so suddenly...
Katalina: Are you all right? Did something happen at the inn?
Daetta: Oh... I...
Daetta tries to say something, but stops herself.
(Captain) and party stay alert for monsters as they wait for her to speak again.
Daetta: I have a bit of a lisp... so I envy that bard because can sing so beautifully...
Daetta: I want to sing like him... but I know I could never do it... And I just felt like going outside...
Daetta: Then monsters came out, and I ended up fighting them...
Rackam: I see... you want to sing like that bard, huh? Then why don't you give it a shot?
Rackam: Listen. I hear there are singers out there that have lisps too. They sing in a way that no one else can.
Rackam: Heheh... That's what my singer friend tells me, anyway. Well? Why not at least give it a try?
Vyrn: Haha! Now that's a good idea! Sing for us, Daetta!
Daetta: W-Wait a second! I've never sang in front of other people before...
Daetta: And I'm afraid people will laugh at my lisp...
Rackam: It'll be all right! You're the hero that fought in the front line for this village. Nobody will laugh at you.
Katalina: Ah. And besides... we wouldn't let anyone laugh at you.
Daetta: Okay... Then... I'm gonna try!
Man: S-Somebody help! Monsters again! There’s a monster!!!
Vyrn: All right! Let's take out these monsters real quick and celebrate back at the tavern!
Crew's New Star: Scene 3
With the battle now over, Daetta finally decides to sing in front of the villagers. The bard plays his instrument, and Daetta starts singing along. When the villagers hear her sing, they become captivated by her unique singing voice. Since learning the joys of singing that day, Daetta makes a habit of singing on the deck of the airship when no one is around.
The villagers are still pumped up after the battle, and so they drink and get rowdy despite their injuries.
As if to give praise to the people that fought so bravely, the bard sings a song about a valiant hero.
Daetta: Mister bard! Please... play a song for me!
Daetta: Also... I'd like to sing this one!
Bard: Sure, of course!
The bard strums his instrument, and a melody begins to play. Daetta hesitates only for a moment before she starts singing. The tavern quiets down, and all eyes turn to her.
Villager 1: Huh, she's got a really pretty voice. She seems so different from when she was fighting. Hey!
Villager 2: She seems a bit unsteady, but it only makes me want to root for her more.
Villager 2: Actually... it's almost as if she's the one who's rooting for me...
Villager 1: Woo! Great job! Hey, sister!
Vyrn: Whahaha! They love it!
Rackam: Hahaha! She got all worried for nothing!
Villager 2: Hey! Hey, young lady! Sing another song for us!
Daetta: A-Another one?!
Lyria: Yeah! I want to join in, too!
The tavern is filled with cheers and applause for Daetta.
She blushes as many voices from the audience request another song.
Daetta: T-This is too much!
Lyria: Oh no! She's running away! Daetta!
Rackam: Hey now... She better not go outside again!
Katalina: We'd better go get her... Let's go, (Captain)! (Captain)!
And so, Daetta learns the joys of singing and her night of trials comes to an end.
Since then, she could be seen singing on the deck of the ship at night when no one is around.
