Diary Entry 14: Village of Zoah

Paet's Request

I soon found myself in the great Village of Zoah. There were so many things to see and do, I didn't know where to start. I walked into an item shop owned by a man named Jared. He had just opened shop not too long ago and had many items to buy. Some books within his shop caught my eye and he said I could take some.

After talking to him for a while, he told me to go find a man named Juba who knows many things. He also mentioned an old man who wanted him to fix his gun. Jared wasn't too sure if he should fix it, since the man was so old and was in no condition to go out hunting.

I left Jared's shop and asked the gatekeeper for directions to Juba's. He told me Juba's wasn't open during the day and directed me to a blue door. To the right of the blue door I entered a brown house. Inside, I found the night gatekeeper named Abner. After talking to him repeatedly, he assumed we were good friends and asked me if he could borrow 100 Dynes. Being the nice guy that I am, I agreed. He better pay me back!

To the left of Juba's, I found a tunnel which connected to the back of town. It was here that I met a man named Aldo. He wasn't very polite, so I ditched him and headed off in a different direction. To the right of the tunnel, I found the back entrance to Juba's. It wasn't locked! I was inside an empty bar. In the back I found a girl named Jeal. She noticed the Verato Pipe I had been carrying around. She told me she was from the Village Verato. I happily gave it to her fulfilling my promise to Raul. I left out the back entrance and once outside, I noticed a path to the right of Juba's bar.

I walked a ways up this path and found another house to the right. Within, I found the old man Jared was talking about. His name was Radgam, an old hunter. Looking around his room, I saw a rare Ancient Age gun on a pedestal. It was similar to mine. I wondered how he had acquired it, was he also a dragon rider at one time? When I fixated my eyes upon it, he screamed, "Don't touch that!" I told him I was sorry and that I just couldn't help myself, because it was so rare. After talking to him for a while, he eventually became curious as to my knowledge about monsters.

He asked me a series of questions. I got them all right! He rewarded me with a Tri-burst gun part. When I left Radgam's house, night had already cast its shadow over the sky. Directly in front of me, I found a strange well. I entered it and emerged in a different section of town. I found a door. Inside, was a small boy called Bezer. He had been hiding from his grandfather. He gave me an Amikhan Ring for promising to keep his hiding spot a secret. It was now time to go see Juba, so I headed off to his bar.

Upon entering, I found a scary shirtless man hovering over a series of illuminated drinks. He wouldn't talk to me unless I ordered one of them, so I gave him 20 Dynes. It tasted horrible, but I pretended to like it and he gave me an Elixir Minor. I asked him about the Empire. He talked about a black ship that I knew nothing about. He also said the Empire was looking for the Tower, found on the other side of the forest. He gave me a picture of the Tower and said to go talk to a man called Paet, if I wanted to know more. He told me to go see him in the morning.

Morning soon arrived, and just as Juba said, I found Paet working on some ancient device towards the back of town. I asked him if he knew anything about the Tower. He refused to tell me, but said he might change his mind if I could find him some ship parts in a place north of the Forbidden Zone called Georgius.

I had no choice but to agree to his terms. Before venturing off to this unknown place, I returned to the caravan to let Raul know that I had found a survivor from the Village of Verato. He thanked me and gave me a reward of 1000 Dynes. He told me a story about his village.

The Empire had deemed it necessary to bring the border lands under control. Raul working as a mercenary for the Empire at the time, went ahead to warn his village of the impending danger. The border lands were located near the village, so it was also destroyed with no consideration for the villagers lives. Raul didn't make it on time and had to face the horrifying fact that his fellow villagers were nothing but ash. It was then that he found the Verato Pipe. After his sad tale, I said good-bye and headed off to my next destination, Georgius.
