"What is important, is that we can not fight this. We've left the era in which we could."

A large, round table sits in the middle of a grand hall. The walls are lined with portraits and banners of the kings and princes of generations long past. Dim torchlight is all the room has to illuminate the shadowy figures who sit at the table.

Some of them eat food, some of them whisper amongst themselves, some of them are observing the peculiar features of the other members at the table. Everyone continues to share the somber mood.

"The barrier was down around the town for, five minutes? How many were lost in that time?"
"Over two-hundred, sire."
"Two hundred people, lost. In such a short amount of time that the guard wasn't even aware that it was happening."

"I believe it was the Guard Captain's duty to drill the villagers every week on what to do if the barrier went down."
"Yes, but the drills mean very little when demons are bearing down on you."

The bickering continues, the room steadily increases in volume until the two officials at the end of the table are merely a tiny whisper in a hall of voices.

A larger figure at one side of the table stands up, the room immediately falls silent at his presence.

"It's clear we must be proactive about this problem. We need something to bring the fight back to the them as they appear, we cannot be their prey any longer."
"That's easy to say, but even a hundred fold increase in guard strength would be merely a light snack to the caliber of monster we're facing."

"As you all may know, the method of times past to fight this threat was to summon a hero from a world that runs parallel to ours. This hero is rendered immune to the effects of the barrier collapsing, and thus isn't affected by demonic energies. In my kingdom's vault, I have found a relic that was used to summon these heroes."

"I must ask, how is a hero-summoning relic going to protect all of our nations at once?"

"That's simple, I have six of them."

You toss and turn, the rays of sunlight illuminate the surface of your eyelids. Now is not the time to be sleeping.

You sit up, and take the time to look around your humble abode. No one else is in here except for you. Standing up and looking outside, you see

>Rolling blue waves that gently rock the vessle you call home. Calm seas like this are a good day to hassle merchant ships.

>Forests of trees and bamboo, the cicadas hum at an impressive volume. It's unusual that sensei is no where to be found.

>An interior garden decorated with marble statues that freshly lines the outset of the courtyard, your father's servants and maids scramble about to prepare breakfast.

>The edge of a cliffside, on the face of the rolling mountains that protect the monastary that your clan has called home for generations. You can see the adults performing martial arts drills.

Har! The seas are calm, the winds are in your favor. Today is a good day for fun, and profit. Your boots slide out from under your bed with a flick of your ankles

You throw on your overshirt and pants, lace your boots, and tie your scarf on tight. No doubt the captain has already set sail for the nearest trade wind. You can hear the sound of footsteps and voices above, yelling at one another and barking orders. It's time to get on the job.

Walking upwards out of the quarters, you spot the ol' Quartermaster. The one who never liked you.

He just shouted something, something about being lazy, and good for nothing, sleeping half the day and forgot you even existed yar har har etc.

You should be amazed that he even remembers your name. He's shouting it at you now to get your attention.

"KNAVE!" He shouts, being named 'Jack' has its downsides, that nickname will haunt you forever.
His white whiskered beard bellowing with his row of wooden teeth. "MAIN DECK, OR I WILL FLAY YE ALIVES, I WILL"

He may have never had good teeth, well-structured face, perfectly straight legs, a functioning left ear, or any of your stunning good looks; but in their place, he had a terrifying howl for a voice that could turn milk into curds.

Walking out onto the main deck, you can see your crewmates scurry back and fourth as a bearded man near the front continues to yell orders at each and every whelp on deck. He points a stern finger at you.
The pathetic rats scurry back and forth with ropes and lengths of chain.

"Knave! Yer on sails! Get yer lazy ass to it!"

You take your post next to the Sail Master, pulling at lengths of rope and cord, knotting them off at the posts and tying the loose ends into knots.

It takes only a moment for you to realize that you're not heading toward the trade routes at all. Instead wheeling the ship around to face the nearest land mass.

"Hey! Are we headed to port!?"

The Sail Master was always the nicest person.

"Aye! Capt'n orders! He claims a storm is near!"

The skies are blue, the water is calm, and the wind is in your favor, but you know better than to distrust the Captain. He has a sixth sense about these things. Your shoulders weaken, and resolve leaves your body.
This ship was already docked in port for several days, or at least long enough for you to make new enemies with the patron gamblers at the bars and whorehouses, which is another thing that you are remarkably talented at.

Maybe you can spend the next few nights hidden away from the drunken rabble that no doubt wants their money back. You would prefer to keep both of your hands.

>Continuing to write

>>33758162

>> No.33758678

>>33758297
The sails are lowered, the customs officers are doled out a nice big 'tip' for their hard efforts. The crew slowly starts to file off the ship to the welcoming arms of merchants and peddlers who await with their wares off the edge of the docks.
And as the Captain predicted, the sky has started to grey, the surf has started to chop, and the wind bellows cold and unforgiving. A storm is approaching, and it is no ordinary storm.

None of that interests you though, what does interest you is finding the nearest place to hide and staying there for as long as needed. You grab anything you don't want stolen from one of the many hidden holes you've made for yourself throughout the ship. Including a great captain's coat that the Captain himself once gave to you to 'hold' during once of his active nights at the pub.

And he would nail you to the hull if he found out that you were still holding it for him.

Stuffing it away. You gather the captain's coat, some of your winnings (got to start somewhere), and a small deck of (maybe marked) cards to take with you to the shore.

Slipping off to avoid the watchful eye of the officers. You quickly notice that your original plan of sticking with the Quarter Master to frighten the grifters has quickly sunk. Him and the Captain are no where to be found.

You continue along the docks, hoping to at least find a shadowy place to enter the town. Soon you are walking along the shoreline as the sun sets and thunder rumbles in the distance. The city chief is beginning to set patrols out further past the docks as dusk settles. The first drops of rain start to fall from the sky, accompanied with thunderous flashes.

On the shorelight, illuminated by the setting sun, is an animal of some kind. Tide is starting to wash away, yet at the same time, it continues to sit and watch. It remains completely still as you approach it.

It's...
A small Fox. That's strange, Foxes are not native to this land. Which means it must have been dropped off or escaped from one of the peddlers at port.
What's more strange about it, is the glossy yellow coat that it sports. You've seen foxes before, or their skins at least, you know they should be a healthy shade of red or light brown.

This one doesn't even move, instead it sits completely still, patiently watching you on your approach.
You expect it to turn around and bolt away soon. Step by step, you walk closer and closer to it.

You are now within arms reach of the little fox. It continues to sit and patiently watch you. It cares not that the rain is starting to come down harder, or the lightning that is coming down. It only seems to sit, and watch.

You quickly notice something, there's something in its mouth. A rolled up piece of paper that seems completely unaffected by the downpour of rain that is now coating the both of you.

It stands up and presents the paper proudly. It elegantly unrolls the parchment that stretches all the way down to its paws. You kneel down to read it.

Lots of unfamiliar runes and letters dot the page. There's some part of it near the bottom that looks like a very elaborate signature.

"That's, er, nice little guy, but how does this-"

GGarrrgghhh.

That's the last time you go drinking.

"Hey!"

A voice is calling out in the darkness.

"-h G- Di- I do i- wr-ng? S- s-rr- s-rr-y!"

You're not amused by the mumbling, if someone is talking to ye, they should speak clearly! Otherwise they don't feel you are worth their time.

"Argh, SPEAK UP! I can't hear a thing that ye are saying!"

Speaking of which, it's clearly night by now. You're not sure how long you've been out, or where you are right now. All that you can tell, is that there is inky blackness with the faintest hints of voices occurring somewhere off in the distance.

"HEY! I'MS TALKING TO YOU!"

"H- on I- y- st- don- mov-"

The mumbling will drive you mad before the darkness will!

"ARE YOU OKAY? OH GODS I THOUGHT I SCREWED UP THE SUMMONING SPELL BUT THEN YOU SHOWED UP AND-"

"That's enough!" you yell, scraping pieces of- something plant like- off of you.

You finally get a good look at your attacker.

She stands shorter than you are, while clearly being younger. Her outfit is some kind of far-off outfit that you occasionally see the rich people from the far east wear. You had always wondered how they managed to stay clothed when all they wore was a glorified blanket that they just tied around their bodies.

Yet, here is one right now, shamelessly clutching the blanket she calls clothes close to her and stammering.

Strangest of all, though, is that she has green hair.

Wait, something behind her just moved, is there someone hiding behind her?

"G-Greetings! I'm Keiko Canele. And I am from the Biscotti Special-"

IT MOVED AGAIN, Something behind her is moving back and fourth really quickly

You can't stand for this!

"Lady, please! There's something behind you!"
"Eh!?"

She spins around, and suddenly, the large thing behind her is now waving around in front of you. It's clinging to her back!

The fuzzy monster continues to wave back and forth, inches away from your face. It may even be considering you as its next victim!

THERE IS NO TIME TO WASTE

Putting your best brawler skills to work, fist after fist flies at the wayward menace. Each blow stopping fraction of an inch away from the girl's back.

It dodges, and weaves, and snakes around each of your fists with brutal accuracy. It dances and bows with each whiff.

Scurvy-ridden landlubber, IT'S MOCKING YOU!

Your once light pace of blows and punches turns into a flurry of punches, slaps, and pushes as your hands look for anything to attack, anything to get a good hold against the ravenous mass that continues to flee from your stalwart fists!

"RAH RAH RAH RAH RAH RAH RAH RAH RAH RAH RAH RAH RAH RAH RAHHHH"

Suddenly, your right hand connects, balling around the 'fur' and into a fist you throw the beast into the path of your left fist. Making a circular motion with your shoulders, your fists amp up until a steady barrage of punches! Each one connecting with more deadly force than the last!

-pomf- -pomf- -pomf- -pomfpomfPomfPomfPomf-

AND HERE COMES THE RIGHT HOOK THAT ONCE PUT A 40 YEAR OLD BRUISER ON PERMANENT SHORE LEAVE

-POOOOOMMMMMFFFFF-

The beast spins around, behind her again as it makes an arcing motion around her waist, she spins around to face me.

AND THE MONSTER IS NOW INCHES FROM HER NECK, SHE'S TREMBLING AT THE DANGER HER LIFE IS FACED WITH!

"I SHALL SAVE YOU, YOUNG LASS!"

HERE IT COMES AGAIN!

The fuzzy mass swiftly dodges out of the way, and my right knuckle makes bare contact with her cheek.

Hmm?

"uuuuUUUUUUUU- I'M TELLLLLLING!"

She immediately turns to flee, her entire body snaps into action as it makes a quick trail of fur as she sprints ahead of you. She's already several paces ahead before you realize that you should probably follow her.

"Wait! Young Lass! That parasitic fur-worm has gouged its claws into your spine!"

In the distance, you can hear a faint "Kyaaaaaaaaa" noise. It may be too late for her.

You chase her off the stone monument you were standing on, down the pathway that leads to it, and into the woods that surround it. She fades from sight with the monster in tow. Leaving you alone in the woods. Birds chirp, some kind of insect buzzes, and the warmth of the noon day begins to soak into your clothes.

No, you can't give up on her just yet, there could still be time. She's too young to have all of it taken away from her.

Your footsteps increase in pace and volume. The woods speed by at a blistering pace as the trees start to thin, making way for a small river that runs parallel to the path.

Up ahead on the path are two figures, the young girl, and a taller girl. The young girl is clutching at the waist of the taller girl.

They both come into clear view as you approach. The younger girl, Keiko, hides behind the taller girl.

This new girl looks older than you, but only by a few years. She's every bit the image of elegance that you could picture a foriegn beauty to look like. She wears the same blanket as the younger girl, and on her back

IS THE SAME PARASITE AS BEFORE!

"You two! Watch out! they-"

She approaches you, as the younger girl stands back.

"Hi." she says

"Hey?"

THWACK.

You've been thumped on the head before. It's not exactly an uncommon occurance for you. Usually it happens when the lads get in a fight, when the quartermaster is having a bad day, or just when you swindle people out of their money in general.

Never, ever have you been knocked in the head by a girl, especially one that is as high class as this one.
It feels humbling, but at the same time, mildly exotic? You're not sure how to describe that feeling.

She moves her hand back to her side.
"Don't do that." She says, the green one now clutching her waist.
"Do what?! But. The fluffy monster, it's like!"
"They're tails, you buffoon, T-A-I-L-S."

You don't see the resemblance at all. They're more like bags of fluff then they are

"I.
Uh.

Walking toward the shrine with the two girls, you notice the foiliage start to decrease. Replaced with well-trimmed grass and intricate structures

You stop outside the shrine, the yellow-haired lady shooing the green-haired one inside. Something is bugging you about all this.

"Whar is this, and why am I here? Which way is the dock?"
"You have been summoned to protect the kingdom, of course"
"That doesn't answer anything! What kingdom? Britain? Fran-"

"Stop."
Her tone becomes stern for a moment, she whistles a very high-pitched noise that echoes throughout the woods.

A bird, not any bigger than your fist, looks up from where it is pecking at the ground in front of the shrine.

And it starts walking toward you
And gets bigger
and bigger
Until it stands almost twice the height that you do!

Atsuko pets it on the side of its neck, as if it was a horse. Then she feeds it an apple, whole.

Except he isn't really, is he. He is retaining names and the fluffy tails, but otherwise he's completely perverting the tone and ethos in service of "Gotta make it serious, gotta up da stakes!" bullshit.
It's not quite outright fixfic, but it is exhibiting the shitty 'I'm going to do it better' attitude.

Because it was dressing, it was plot that were thrown out as motivation, that only existed for an episode or two and never actually came to a head. It was there but it didn't violate the tone and make things un-fun.

He started off with a meeting between heads of state about two hundred generic villagers being killed. Granted, that doesn't speak of ha ha funny, but he didn't start with a description of how each one was eviscerated and raped either.

>Only because you don't know how it will work out.
For every five minutes you spend having fun and not doing hero stuff, demons could be slaugtering innocent people by the hundred. But please, continue to enjoy yourself with the tweenage princess and her loli advisors Mr 18th century pirate.

The meeting was clearly discussing how shocking the mere two hundred people dying was, I doubt hundreds are dying every minute.

You act like we're going to ignore things that are important when the biggest decision we've made so far was "I wanna be a pirate" and "Holy shit something completely out of my experience is freaking me out."

Well, we've barely done anything yet, so I can't be sure how it's all going to pan out. But I do note that in the OP it discusses shit happening when a barrier went down temporarily, which would mean that this stuff only happens in specific locations for short windows, and so it doesn't matter at all if we have time doing R&R so long as we run off to wherever the problem is as soon as we get notified.

The opening was not meant to set the tone, but rather the prologue of the story and the main plot that we will be dealing with as the story progresses. I doubt we will be having demon attacks every fucking day, since the Opening post made it clear that this is an extremely rare occurrence that has now alarmed the world leaders.
It will likely be the distant storm on the horizon, not the everlasting dark cloud that shrouds the entire Quest in it's menacing folds.

Alright, I don't trust the quest, but you do make a fair point. I'd still like the other guy to run his version, but I will contain my bitchiness and give another couple of threads a chance.

Wow this exploded overnight

Please don't think that much of '200' people dying. I'm not going to grimdark the quest or the setting. The show mentioned people dying in demon attacks frequently, which is why the special squad was made in the first place.

Also please sage from here on out, I wasn't planning on continuing today.

And adding to this, that's why Yukikaze from the show didn't have a family and was living with a demon hunter, her entire village was lost to a demon attack.
