Participants: Moon Village, Sun Village
Type: Group Mission
Reward: 25 EXP, 10 Ryo
Location: Within a village's region
Details: Just like patrolling the village is important, it is also important to make sure the nations borders are secure. Your task is to spend time roaming the regions borders and making sure nothing looks out of place. This includes roaming the main road, outing bandit camps or arresting thieves. While it can be boring at times, you never know what is going to pop up out in the wild.
Requirements: Each person must make at least two posts, totally to 800 WC.
"For better or worse; I got you!"
A small backpack stuffed with the essentials: clothing, food, and not to mention a first-aid kit as compliments of the village. Their hospitality knew no bounds for someone who was a stranger to the village just as he had been. However, after a number of missions, help with preparation, and finally a sound walk through the streets for patrol; they were nonetheless grateful. It was fortunate, or perhaps a blessing, that Hikari had garnered a particular interest in a certain assignment that was posted in the village of them checking the borders for security as something “feral” had been seen snooping about as of late. With the vigor and spirit of someone who was desperate, he would snatch the mission at the first chance...or at least try to with as much effort as a blind child could, and would insist that he would be on his way at once.
He had to dress carefully and move twice as carefully. Beneath his silken bright white Ofurisode Kimono, were bandages that squeezed his body tightly to secure him. It was a reminder of his carelessness as mere a few days ago while being on a mission with the other shinobi that had been with him from the Sun Village. The young rabbit would pat his chest,resentfully, as he would one moment be securing the straps to his shoulders and the next would be trekking from the office accepting the mission and would be heading out in a rush. The shinobi would insist that he wait for whomever his partner was to aid him in his patrol as the village was slightly baffled by the beast spotted in the wilds, but yet, Hikari would take matters into his hands.
“Please tell them to meet me there!” He would insist, “Whomever they shall be!”
It took quite a while to get to the Sun Spire Mountains, a place where the sightings of the creature had been most frequent. Hikari would walk about the area, eyes useless as ever, and would listen with each sound of his footsteps. The ridges were far and he would only end up in an opening riddled with stalagmites and some shrubbery growing in the shade of some of the rocky formations. The massive area was rounded and there were few columns of twisted rock that were eternally indecisive to whether they would fall or not. His lips would press tightly as he seemed uncertain.
“It is strange,” Hikari would say with a low tone as he began to weave hand signs. Carefully, he went through the motions preparing to listen to see if anyone had been near this area of the border. “Certainly...I thought I heard someone.” he would weave the signs slowly and surely as he was careful. He had survived the previous encounter with whatever had attacked, but yet, he did not want to take a chance the second time and lose his life.
