Happy Birthday Cutscenes
# Link Text

Happy birthday, (Captain).
This is my first time celebrating the day of someone else's birth. Those around me never cared for such things.
Of course I am aware of my own date of birth. Acutely aware in fact.
Date of birth and age are essential in determining how much usefulness can be reaped from my remaining years.
What? Do you find that point of view strange? How so? I am only stating a fact.
So you are saying that adding a year is proof that you are alive and not a countdown toward death.
Hmm...
That is how you people think. I see. I admit that is a profound notion.
Now I cannot get the meaning of birthdays out of my head. I will spend all of today with you in order to investigate what makes this day so meaningful.

Happy New Year Cutscenes

Happy New Year.
That is what I hear everyone saying, but why?
Ah, so it is a greeting that welcomes in a new year. Does that alone warrant attention? What significance is there to the start of a new year?
Hmm... I see. The cause for celebration is all the obstacles you and your comrades overcame during that time frame.
Some things cannot be accomplished alone, thus there are situations that necessitate cooperation from friends. Sound reasoning.
Happy New Year, (Captain). I will remember to use this greeting again next year. Please do not die before then.

Valentine's Day Cutscenes

If you are offering me confectionery, then I will not refuse.
Hm. Chocolates as you fossildwellers call it. Brown, sugary treats.
High in nutritional value and easy to eat. A sensible snack.
More importantly, you appear agitated. What is troubling you?
This is Valentine's chocolate?
Hmm... Then this confection has a ritualistic meaning behind it.
And what exactly would that be? Explain.
Wait. Where are you going? Why do you run?
Humph. Incomprehensible.

White Day Cutscenes

1

After receiving a gift on Valentine's Day, it is customary to return the favor on White Day.
This gift is in accordance with said custom. Take it.
Although it does not change how illogical the entire affair is.
Instead of giving a gift in order to receive a gift, the sensible thing to do would be to purchase the desired object yourself from the outset.
You are smiling. Does receiving confectionery from me make you that happy?
I do not understand. Though gifts may be identical in nature, emotions change at the point of delivery.
Curiously I do not view this concept unfavorably, regardless of how little sense it makes.
Hehe. Fascinating.
Understood. From now on I will participate in future confectionery gift exchanges.

After the Fall

Cassius needs provisions in order for his body to recover from its injuries, so Beatrix readily offers him the bread she gets as a stipend. Cassius finds Beatrix's actions to be highly illogical, but at the same time it piques his interest in skydwellers.



Cassius: ...
Cassius is seriously injured crash-landing onto Moon Sliver.
He agrees to follow the crew at their behest, but he's in constant pain from his injuries.
Cassius: (My body is damaged in multiple places. Luckily blood loss was staunched before it could exceed ten percent.)
Cassius: (Those emergency measures have stabilized afflicted areas. Now I can focus on recuperation. However...)
Beatrix: Does it still hurt?
Cassius: It's nothing.
Beatrix: Yeah, I don't know about that. Your face tells a different story. C'mon, you can be straight with me.
Cassius: ...
Cassius relents after realizing that he has unconsciously given himself away.
Cassius: I lack iron.
Beatrix: Huh? Iron?
Cassius: Proteins, calcium carbonate, silicon, lipids. Furthermore—
Beatrix: Wait, wait, wait! Let me get this straight. Iron and proteates? Carbonics? What do you need all that stuff for?
Cassius: Oral intake of the aforementioned resources is required to repair damaged tissue. I need to find these provisions.
Beatrix: What the heck are you talking about?
Beatrix: Oh! Maybe you're hungry! Is that it?
Cassius: Hunger is not a prerequisite for eating.
Beatrix: Haha! Getting your appetite back is a good sign! And I've got just the thing!
Beatrix rummages through her pouch.
Beatrix: Here you go. This bread'll do you some good.
Cassius: ...!
Beatrix: It's my pay from the higher-ups. Gobble it down and you'll feel good as new. Plus your injuries will heal faster. Try it.
Beatrix stuffs the large loaf of bread into Cassius's hands.
Cassius: I don't understand. Why are you giving your rations to a complete stranger?
Beatrix: Huh? Um... I don't like to ignore people who are down on their luck I guess.
Cassius: This arrangement imparts no benefit to you. It is a highly illogical action.
Beatrix: Excuse me? Life isn't just about profiting, you know.
Beatrix: Anyway, as long as you make a quick recovery, that's more than enough for me.
Cassius: I see.
Cassius hasn't lost his skepticism but accepts the bread nonetheless.
Cassius: Mm... Mm...
Cassius: (No hint of poison.)
Cassius: (Comprised of wheat and oils, and fortified with healthy quantities of nutrients. I can see how this will shorten my convalescence.)
Beatrix: Whoops, almost forgot the best part. It tastes even better with strawberry jam!
Beatrix again reaches into her pouch and pulls out a small glass jar.
Cassius: Strawberry... jam?
Beatrix: Oh, do you like it?
Cassius: Frankly this is my first encounter with jam. Luxury items are only awarded to designated individuals.
Beatrix: You're kidding me! It's only strawberry jam! And you've never even seen it before?
Lyria: Just where were you living before, Cassius?
Cassius: ...
Cassius: All I can tell you is that we are compensated based on our contributions.
Lyria, Vyrn, Beatrix: ...
Vyrn: Hmm... He really doesn't wanna give the deets about where he's from.
Lyria: Mm-hm.
You just worry about eating your fill, Cassius.
Cassius: ...?
Cassius seems intent on dodging this topic. Thus the conversation takes an unexpected turn.
Beatrix: So, um, I've got other flavors too! Like blueberry, tangerine, apple... Let's use all of them!
Cassius: Okay.
Beatrix produces jar after jar from her pouch and starts slathering the bread with preserves.
Vyrn: Whoa... That thing's more jam than bread...
Beatrix: Heheh. This ultimate sandwich can even unclog those pangs of guilt you get in your chest when you blow a mission!
Cassius: ...
(It has stress-relieving properties?)
Cassius stuffs the bread, which buckles under the weight of quivering jam, into his mouth without question.
Cassius: Very sweet.
Vyrn: I told her that was too much.
Cassius: No, this is acceptable.
Beatrix: I know, right? The best cure to a problem is a big dose of all the spreads! I've got honey too, if you want some.
Cassius: ...
Cassius's nod does all the talking for him.
Beatrix: Haha! We've got a heavyweight here!
Cassius: (On the moon, only provisions of the highest grade would have such high sugar content.)
Cassius: (So this is what is consumed by the upper echelons. Fascinating.)
The bread doesn't stand a chance against Cassius.
Cassius: (Elevated heart rate and rising body temperature confirmed. These nutrients must be given time to be properly absorbed. Focus on resting.)
And so Cassius closes his eyes.
Vyrn: Wow. Lights out right after the last bite.
Vyrn: You gonna pull through this, Blue? He ate your food.
Beatrix: Yeah. I'm used to going without a thing to eat!
Beatrix: Actually this is just like the time Zeta and I first met. Only she was the one feeding me, and it ended up in a fight.
Vyrn: Uh... How do you go from someone sharing food with you to having a fight? What happened?
Beatrix: I mean, the way she looked at me when she handed it over, anyone would take it the wrong way!
Beatrix: But that was then, and this is now. Consider it my way of making up for the past! Aaah, it feels good to get that off my chest!
Cassius: (To feel elation at giving away one's own sustenance is utterly illogical. I understand now why the higher-ups need to know about these people.)
Cassius: (They defy rationality with irrationality. They can defeat automagods.)
Cassius: (The people of Fossil are most fascinating...)
This is the last thought in Cassius's mind before his consciousness drifts away.

Highly Illogical

(Captain), Lyria, and Vyrn take Cassius to a ramen stand, where he proceeds to evaluate the worth of ramen in terms of nutrition and utility. He deems ramen to be highly illogical for sustenance, but for reasons he can't understand, he returns for more the next day.



Unable to find a way back to the moon, Cassius joins (Captain)'s crew in the interim.
The crew decides to try a famous ramen shop.
Vyrn: Holy smokes. Look at that line.
Cassius: So this is that "ramen stand" you were telling me about earlier.
Lyria: Yes. It's famous for its delicious food. That's why we wanted to bring you here.
Cassius: ...
Cassius: Highly illogical.
Vyrn: There he goes again. What's got your goat this time?
Cassius: I fail to see the reason for waiting in a long line as a means of satiating one's hunger.
Cassius: I spot no fewer than fifteen other establishments that offer immediate food distribution.
Lyria: Ahaha... Well, that just shows you how tasty this ramen is.
Cassius: Hmm...
Cassius silently falls into the line, though he's not entirely convinced by Lyria's reasoning.
Vyrn: So what's so special about the menu here anyway?
Lyria: Let's see. An extra-savory broth stewed from pork bones with extra-thin noodles to die for...
Vyrn: Nice. That's where that pork smell's coming from. I can't stop drooling!
Lyria: Heehee. I'm craving a bowl so badly! How about you, (Captain)?
(Captain) smiles and nods.
Cassius: ...
Cassius observes the small group of crewmates who can barely contain their excitement.
Cassius: (They even extract enjoyment from meaningless waiting.)
Cassius: Heh. Quite fascinating.
Vyrn: Huh. Guess you finally found something to look forward to.
Cassius: With reservations.
Lyria: Haha. It's going to be so delicious! You'll see!
After many minutes tick away, the crew members can finally grab seats at the counter.
Steam billows around them, and the aroma of ramen intensifies their salivation. Empty bowls line the countertop, ready to receive their bounty.
Stallkeeper: And your ramen is served!
Lyria: Oooh! It looks even tastier up close!
Cassius: Indeed.
Gleaning how to use chopsticks from his companions, Cassius brings the noodles to his mouth.
Cassius: Slurp...
Vyrn: Hehe! What'd I tell ya! Good, right? Now aren't you glad we waited?
Cassius: Hm...
Cassius: (Wheat flour is stretched into long, thin strands. Quick to heat, easy to prepare, and easy to eat. A sensible design.)
Cassius: (And the flavor is indeed pleasing. These "toppings" arranged in the broth ensure that taste buds do not become complacent. A wise choice.)
Cassius: (However...)
Cassius: (Where do I begin with its nutritional composition? One could say the ratio of salt and carbohydrates to all else is haphazard at best.)
Cassius: (The entire purpose of consuming nutrients is to sustain life. This meal fails completely by that logic.)
Vyrn: You look like you've got a bug up your butt. Ramen not your thing?
Cassius: I wouldn't say that. The flavor is agreeable.
Lyria: Hehe. I'm glad you found something you like, Cassius!
Cassius: (The fact remains that it is unreasonable to expend an inordinate amount of time for a meal of so little nutritional value. Thus I conclude ramen to be highly illogical.)
The meal comes to an end, and everyone returns to their lodgings.
The crew will be in town for a few days to wait for a client. Each member thinks of how they'll pass the time as they drift off to sleep.
Stallkeeper: Come on in!
Cassius: ...
Stallkeeper: Sir, you've come again! Take whichever open seat you like!
Cassius: (Why?)
Cassius: (Why did I come back here alone?)
Not grasping the meaning behind his own illogical actions, Cassius has a seat at the counter.

Highly Illogical: Scene 2

Consecutive days of eating ramen at the same ramen stand has thrown off the nutritional balance in Cassius's body. On his final visit to the ramen stand, the owner thanks him for his patronage with an extra helping of toppings for free. This generosity reminds Cassius of why he finds the Sky Realm and skydwellers to be so fascinating.



Cassius: ...
Cassius scowls at the face he sees in the mirror.
He's been going to the same ramen stand for days, though he still has no idea why. Now he knows what it has cost him.
Cassius: A blemish...
Using the mirror as a guide, he gently brushes the red bump on his face with his fingertips.
Cassius: Consecutive days of consuming ramen have upended the nutritional balance in my body.
Cassius: Regardless of the taste, in terms of health it is worse than the lowest-grade meals served on the moon.
Cassius: There is zero rationale to eating ramen. I will stop today in order to restore balance to my body.
Stallkeeper: Hey, good to see ya again! Come in!
Cassius: ...!
Cassius: (Why am I here? I am certain that all the previous bowls of ramen were enough to complete my analysis, but it appears my interest persists.)
Cassius: (I don't understand. I am clearly being irrational.)
Stallkeeper: Here you go! The usual, yeah?
The owner of the stand sets a familiar bowl in front of Cassius along with a smaller plate to the side.
Cassius: What is this? I do not recall ordering it.
Stallkeeper: Oh, it's an extra helping of boiled egg and roast pork. On the house.
Cassius: What?
Cassius: I do not understand. Why abruptly offer a product without seeking compensation? One would assume there is malicious intent involved.
Stallkeeper: Haha. Paranoid, much? Just wanted to say thanks for coming to my joint every day.
Stallkeeper: Gives me a smile knowing you like my ramen that much.
Stallkeeper: Well, didn't mean to be pushy or anything. You scratched my back, so I'm scratching yours.
Cassius: ...
Cassius: (Here too...)
Beatrix: You're a real weirdo. There's no tricks or anything.
Beatrix: Maybe you think we're butting in, but we're simply doing this out of kindness.
Cassius: Thank you.
Stallkeeper: Sure, don't mention it.
Cassius: ...
Ever since arriving from the moon, Cassius has encountered, in his eyes, many incomprehensible situations.
With conflicting emotions in his chest, he proceeds to finish his final bowl of ramen.
Cassius: (Why did I keep going back to that stand? I could not repress my deep interest in a food I deemed illogical.)
Cassius: (Illogical... Yes, that's it. It has been one mystery after another with this culture.)
Cassius: (That includes (Captain) and those individuals from the Society.)
Cassius: (Not only has flesh proven victorious in conflicts with automagods—some have even communed with them.)
Cassius: (Irrationality overturns rationality, spawning an outcome that is highly... illogical?)
Cassius: (Heh. I was right to find them fascinating.)
Vyrn: Oh, hey. You're back. Didja go for ramen by yourself again?
Cassius: Yes.
Cassius offers a terse response and falls silent.
Vyrn: Hm? Were you hoping we'd come with?
Cassius: No.
Cassius: I have concluded that fossildwellers and ramen are quite similar.
Vyrn: Huh? What's that supposed to mean?
Cassius: Heh. Exactly what I said.
Cassius returns to his room without further elaboration.
Vyrn: Oookay... So much for trying to figure that guy out...
The client that the crew has been waiting for finally arrives shortly thereafter. (Captain) and company prepare to leave town.
Cassius gets dressed, eager to encounter more enigmas as they present themselves.





(Captain) pays a visit to a Society-run medical facility to see how Cassius is doing.
Cassius, recovering in bed, props himself up on his elbows when (Captain) enters his room.
Cassius: Perfect timing, (Captain). I have a question for you.
Cassius: I've been wondering since my time at the Central Axis...
Cassius: How is it that the islands here remain aloft? The more I consider the problem, the more it baffles me.
Cassius: Gravity is clearly in operation here, so how can such heavy masses float?
  1. Good question, come to think of it.
  2. They float because they're light.
  3. What's gravity?

Choose: Good question, come to think of it.
Cassius: I see. So you've never even questioned it. Fascinating.
Cassius: Then the fact that islands float is so deeply ingrained in your people's consciousness that it never occurs to them to examine the physics.
Cassius: Which means seeking an explanation from any of you would be an inefficient use of my time.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 100!

Choose: They float because they're light.
Cassius: ……呆れたな。
非合理極まりないことを口にするな。
Cassius: If islands floated because they were light, then everything lighter than the rock and soil which comprise them would float straight off into the cosmos.
Cassius: I see I will have to look elsewhere for intelligent answers.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 50!

Choose: What's gravity?
Cassius: Gravity is the force which draws objects toward the ground—in other words, the reason why matter has weight.
Cassius: Are people here not familiar with the concept?
Cassius: Or perhaps a more logical conclusion is that you know the concept by another name.
Cassius: Fascinating, in either event.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 75!

: Scene 2





Cassius is sitting up in bed, reading a tattered old tome.
It appears to be an illustrated book on biology.
Cassius: Ah, (Captain). As you can see, I am studying your ecosystem.
Cassius: This book is all about the strange life-forms down here which are not found on the moon. It's fascinating.
  1. So what does live on the moon?
  2. Would you like to go see them in person?
  3. Can I read along with you?

Choose: So what does live on the moon?
Cassius: I regret that I am not authorized to share any information on that subject.
Cassius: What I can say is that my world is different enough from yours to make this book quite enthralling.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 75!

Choose: Would you like to go see them in person?
Cassius: A logical course of action. Certainly direct observation would yield more information than the mere perusal of secondhand accounts.
Cassius: I will gladly accept your offer once my convalescence is complete.
Cassius: Slimes... Goblins... And this wyvern in particular merits detailed study.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 100!

Choose: Can I read along with you?
Cassius: Why?
Cassius: I can think of no way for two people to simultaneously read a single book which would not be egregiously inefficient.
Cassius: If you wish to read it, you will have to wait. I will lend it to you once I have finished.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 50!

(Captain) drops by Cassius's room in the Society medical facility.
The captain arrives just as the healer is wrapping up Cassius's treatment.
Healer: That should do it for today. Make sure you get your rest.
Cassius: Understood.
Cassius: Oh. Hello, (Captain). Excellent timing.
Cassius: When I inquired, that doctor claimed he chose his profession of his own volition.
Cassius: I struggle to comprehend.
Cassius: People are subjected to an aptitude test at birth to determine the profession to which they are best suited.
Cassius: Personal preference has no part in this.
Cassius: Just as I was assigned at birth to be a soldier...
  1. So that's normal on the moon?
  2. So you were forced to fight against your will?
  3. Is there any other job you'd like to try?

Choose: So that's normal on the moon?
Cassius: Indeed.
I gather there is a different system in place here.
Cassius: So fossildwellers choose their vocations haphazardly, with no regard for suitability?
Cassius: And your society continues to function? I cannot fathom such a system.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 100!

Choose: So you were forced to fight against your will?
Cassius: I was assigned to become a soldier and raised to that end. That's all.
Cassius: I had no particular objections.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 75!

Choose: Is there any other job you'd like to try?
Cassius: I see. This hypothetical question is predicated upon the ability to choose a profession for oneself.
Cassius: Hm... I have trouble imagining myself as anything but a soldier...
Cassius: But the positions of scholar or researcher at Site Zero were not without their merits...
Cassius's curiosity rose by 50!

: Scene 4





Another day of convalescence.
Cassius pauses after the first bite of his meal, spoon resting on his lip. His brow furrows.
Cassius: This has been troubling me since my treatment here began...
Cassius: The meals here taste far too good. Why is that?
Cassius: Surely flavor has no impact on a meal's restorative properties. Why expend any effort on its taste?
Cassius: These luxury rations would better befit the upper echelons than a mere soldier.
  1. Should I ask them for something different?
  2. This food is nothing special.
  3. Better eat it before it gets cold.

Choose: Should I ask them for something different?
Cassius: That was not my intention. Please refrain.
Cassius: No, wait. You mean to tell me that a mere request would suffice to procure different rations?
Cassius: In that case... I would indeed like to try other dishes as well.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 75!

Choose: This food is nothing special.
Cassius: Nothing special? You consider this fare commonplace? Based on what metric?
Cassius: Are you telling me everyone here partakes of such high quality food on a daily basis? It boggles the mind.
Cassius: Heh... Heh heh... I am eager to see what manner of food I will be given next.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 100!

Choose: Better eat it before it gets cold.
Cassius: Mm. Indeed. This food's flavor is closely linked to its residual heat retention.
Cassius: Rations with such a narrow window of edibility seem an illogical choice... but their flavor is inarguable.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 50!

(Captain) pays Cassius a visit and finds him holding playing cards and a stringed instrument.
Cassius: Ah, (Captain). I was just conducting an investigation into your people's leisure activities.
Cassius: There really are an endless variety. Gambling, sleight of hand illusions, music... I find it fascinating.
Cassius: Moreover, it seems you all engage in these pursuits regardless of origin or social status.
Cassius: It strains credibility.
  1. Why don't we play something now?
  2. So no one has hobbies on the moon?
  3. So which hobbies caught your fancy?

Choose: Why don't we play something now?
Cassius: You'd be willing to help me investigate these behaviors? I was just considering a hands-on experiment.
Cassius: Let us engage in a game of poker using these playing cards.
Cassius: It seems there are a variety of card games, each with different rules. I wish to try them all in turn.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 100!

Choose: So no one has hobbies on the moon?
Cassius: Only those of high rank or social standing are allowed such frivolities.
Cassius: At my rank, I was only allotted a modest sugar ration and permitted to indulge in reading.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 50!

Choose: So which hobbies caught your fancy?
Cassius: Hm... A difficult question. It is gambling that most holds my interest, but music is also an attractive option.
Cassius: I initially assumed that theoretical knowledge would suffice, but the people here continue to betray my expectations.
Cassius: I've come to believe that firsthand experience of your behaviors is required to properly understand.
Cassius: Once my treatment is complete, I believe I shall make a thorough survey of these leisure activities.
Cassius: I would be pleased to have your cooperation in this endeavor, (Captain).

Cassius expresses a desire to see the sea, so (Captain) brings him to Auguste.
Cassius: So this is the sea.
Cassius: We have something called a "sea" on the moon, but it looks nothing like this.
  1. How 'bout a swim?
  2. Wanna taste some seawater?
  3. Well, time to head home.

Choose: How 'bout a swim?
Cassius: For what purpose? I am not yet sufficiently recovered to engage in physical training.
Cassius: For leisure purposes? With what objective?
Cassius: You claim the activity is enjoyable in and of itself... Swimming for pleasure...
Cassius: Hmm... No, I fail to comprehend.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 75!

Choose: Wanna taste some seawater?
Cassius: Heh... I was just about to do so.
Cassius: Slurp...
Cassius: I see. The salt content is too high for potability. This would not make a suitable reservoir for drinking water.
Cassius: Much like the meadow we visited the other day, however, it is a splendid sight.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 100!

Choose: Well, time to head home.
Cassius: What, we're out of time already?
Cassius: I was hoping to conduct a more leisurely study. Can we not extend our stay?
Cassius: Half an hour... Even a quarter hour would be sufficient. Will you grant me that much?

One day, Cassius asks (Captain) to spar with him.
Just as they are both beginning to break a sweat, Cassius lowers his spear.
Just as they are both beginning to break a sweat, Cassius lowers his spear.
Cassius: Hm. Let us end here.
Cassius: My injuries appear largely to have healed. My mobility has been restored almost to pre-injury levels.
Cassius: But I am once again reminded... You are uncommonly strong, (Captain).
Cassius: You exceed average capabilities for your age range. If you were to go to the moon, you could immediately be ranked alpha-9... No, higher. You might make omega-3.
  1. You're no slouch yourself.
  2. What does Omega-3 mean?
  3. I've still got a lot of work to do.

Choose: You're no slouch yourself.
Cassius: Heh. How odd.
Cassius: When we first met, you expressed your admiration for my abilities, but I felt nothing.
Cassius: Now I find it... not unpleasant. This is highly illogical.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 100!

Choose: What does Omega-3 mean?
Cassius: In broad strokes, it is the rank assigned to the moon's most capable soldiers.
Cassius: Supposedly only three moondwellers currently hold this rank. They are said to enjoy various special privileges.
Cassius: But I have nothing more to go on than rumors of dubious credibility. There are no confirmed eyewitness accounts of their existence.
Cassius: In the end, these soldiers may be no more than the stuff of legend.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 50!

Choose: I've still got a lot of work to do.
Cassius: So you remain unsatisfied even with such great power at your command.
Cassius: Interesting.
Cassius: Heh... Fascinating. Raise your weapon, (Captain). Let us go another round.

Cassius: I hear you experience a meteorological phenomenon here known as snow.
Cassius: I have only encountered it in books, so I am eager to witness it in person. Where must I go to do so?
  1. There's no such thing as snow.
  2. This is the wrong season for it.
  3. The North Vast!

Choose: There's no such thing as snow.
Cassius: What! Then the accounts I read on the moon were mere fictions...
Cassius: They described it as white and cold... and incomparably beautiful... I always wanted to see it for myself.
Cassius: ...
Excuse me? You were joking?
Cassius: Then snow does exist.
Cassius: (Captain)... Why would you lie to me?
Cassius's curiosity rose by 50!

Choose: This is the wrong season for it.
Cassius: I see. The phenomenon is linked to the time of year.
Cassius: That makes sense. Snow consists of ice crystals formed from atmospheric moisture...
Cassius: In order for snow to fall, the temperature must be low enough to freeze that moisture.
Cassius: Then we shall wait for the appropriate season to arrive. With luck, I will be able to remain here until then.
Cassius's curiosity rose by 75!

Choose: The North Vast!
