- Mission Info:
- Name: Scout the Border
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. Personal Goal: Explore rumors to investigate where the missing children went, who might be responsible, and what the recent trends of beliefs in SwollenMan have to do with anything.
Kannagi had wanted no other partner than Hikari to assist on this mission. It seemed to be filled with problems from every angle and the rumors, lies, and fears had all but permeated the various travelers and nomads in the mountain regions. Caravans had reported missing children; a single trip through the mountain pass came with the strange kidnappings at nightfall. Kannagi had wanted to hear the story for herself in person, but Hikari was an expert at traveling in these sort of places. The blue haired kunoichi was adept at travel but for the bunny, it was as if he knew what was going to happen before it even did. She guessed it had to do with his ears but she had never been brave or callous enough to ask about them. There had even been a rumor of an entire group of Usagi children going missing as Usagi had neared the mountains, not even going into their depths! It made no sense... what use had bandits for kidnapping children? And if they had been killed... where were all of the bodies?
Recently, Kannagi had heard the people with missing children blaming some sort of mythological creature called "SwollenMan". It sounded utterly ridiculous and absolutely worth dismissing as a logical answer to the problems, but occasionally myths arose from truth and it wouldn't hurt to learn more about the creature's mythos on the off chance it might actually relate to information that she and Hikari could use. She waited near the mountains for Hikari, puzzling it over in her head. They had plenty of places to look, abundant peoples to talk to, and with any luck, ample clues to discover. She wore her dark blue skirt long instead of tied up, and her gray sleeveless top would offer enough mobility to make this patrol and travel easy for her. Her shinobi protector was in obvious placement at her waist, hoping the authority and seriousness of her rank might help her and her partner get the information faster.
