It is Likely that the Floating text is our Soon to be subsumed MorselDear Patron's Method of Painting the Medium while we look through her Light Devouring Look OrbsEYES so as to facilitate the communication of slightly more abstract ideas than might easily be conveyed through speech or ideas that do not directly pertain to the matters at Grasping Limb such as erroniously unfavourable opinions of antiques

An internal letter to Council Member Lordlyhouse,

What or who exactly is a "Dear Patron"? And what exactly is a grasping limb?

Apologies, I do not catch on.

I find antiques nice, and favorable.

Sincerly with sincerity,
fellow council member wilitngMyosotis.

Your POV separates from Aubrey's when she leaves the area.
This particular slice of In-Between has one interesting feature, at least.
The static fluctuates.

AUBREY
"Oh, sorry. Were you following my line of sight?"

She welcomes you back into her POV.

AUBREY
"First things first: I'm not going
anywhere near that door unarmed."

You feel Aubrey's tension as though it were your own.
The sight of the unguarded doorway stirs something inside her...

"I'd appreciate a weapon, Council."
"I don't want to be the only creature
wandering the In-Between that can't
kill. Not this time."

Tada! A beginners bracelet, perfect for lesson 101 of magics.
[Image: G0jPAXM.png][Image: 2FTsEHj.png][Image: pZrs4uB.png]
For simplicity's sake,we'll just use some standard crystals. Fire, Ice, and Lightning.
Just plug in the crystal to one of the three* slots, and tada, you can do a magic.
[Image: m3VOj6J.png]
Now, since the bracelet has three slots you can use all these at once, and even combine the effects of different crystals into one spell! Fancy. This can get particularly complicated and intricate with enough slots and practice, but that's why it's a beginners bracelet, not a mighty mage deluxe or whatever those new arcane practioners call them these days. But I digress.

Ahem. Using the band is quite simple. Point at something, and think of the element(s) you want to use. Then the bracelet works its magic... Oh, and as a beginners bracelet don't worry about misfires. It has a built-in safety due to certain incidents a few years back. Nothing to worry about!

*Normally beginners bracelets have four slots, with the fourth slot being very important for doing anything other than launch elemental bolts at wherever you happen to be pointing at the time. Unfortunately said bracelets are out of stock, so had to pull one out of the reject pile. The price of having products produced by literal chimps. I will, uh. Let you know if I find any other spare trinkets in there...

Hmmm. How about a staff? A staff would be nice, yes?

[Image: IMG_1652.png]

That little round thing in the middle is the strap! Easier to hold, isn't it?

I decided to draw those little braclets onto the staff, so it has magics as well! You can remove them if so you wish. You'll get a meelee weapon that way!

You created the Adaptive Combat Bracelet!
Your conflicting intentions produce... something... from multiple designs.

[Image: ada_rotation.gif?raw=true]

ADAPTIVE COMBAT BRACELET (Party Member)
The Adaptive Combat Bracelet is a free-flying multi-weapon with one directive: protect her owner at all costs.
By acting as a Party Member versus standard Equipment, 'Ada' absolves her owner of responsibility for bloodshed.
After all, the Elderly and Preschool Demographics appreciate a less violent heroine.


[Image: its_ada.png?raw=true]

Ada joins the party!
You can check the party's status with, aptly, the STATUS command.
Further instructions to come.


AUBREY
"So... what you're saying is..."
"I'm a P*kemon Trainer now?"

Aubrey gives Ada a tentative pet. The bracelet(?) hums affectionately.

AUBREY
"Well, okay. If it works, it works."

She pauses to think, nerves fading in favour of excitement.

AUBREY
"Should we find something to t̴͇e̘͕̦̞̲̬ͅs̭͖̩̰t̖̜̫̟̕ ̻her ̣̫̣͇̻̕a̮̠̹̞bḭ̯͜ĺ̳̘i̵̖̠̝t̰͔͉̜i̧͓̖̫̘e̸̹̘̗̯̲̞s̯̦̜͚͓ͅ on?"

>Hm. Seems our connection got a tad fuzzy there.
>Let me check what we have in stock.
Spoiler :
Oh dear. This won't do at all...
I had planned on picking out a nice easy enemy for practice with oh, a nice frowning slime. Unfortunately, Barnabas our Bonobo in charge of shipping these things sent the wrong package.
bad Barnabas, no bananas for you tonight
Regardless, we managed to find the file on what monster we shipped in.
The good news is it's a rather easy monster. A few tricks, but nothing special.
The bad news is we, that is to say, Barnabas input the wrong coordinates. So it should show up at some point in the future, but not right now.
The worse news is it's a tricky critter outside combat, generally making a creepy nuisance of itself. Running off with keys, sneaking up behind you and making loud honking noises before running away, that sort of thing.

Critter File
Spoiler :
[Image: uvSOXIR.png]
Honkit

Trivia
Vaguely modeled after a certain clown, the Honkit is a relatively weak target suitable for early-intermediate adventurers who know combat 101, and are ready for combat 102.
Strength/Weaknesses
Honkit's are fairly fragile, with no particular weakness.
Honkit's tend to travel in packs, if you see one Honkit you can expect several more to be in the area.
Despite their goofy appearance, and waddling motions, they can move with surprising speed.
Grace on the other hand, is not their strong suit. It's rather easy to trip them up, and neutralize them that way. They can't get up without assistance.

Techniques
Headbutt - Little to no damage, good odds of knocking targets over.
Honk - Other than being a particularly creepy honk, no effect.
Head Shake - Starts shaking it's head, flinging miscellaneous objects out of its hair. Such as banana peels, bicycle horns, circus snacks, and whatever else it may have picked up.
Additionally, Barnabas offers their formal apology and will ensure that this won't happen again. Won't you Barnabas? "ook."

Quiet. Good for an unusual opinion. Doesn't talk much.

" Individually, our ideas are strong. Combined, our ideas will be unstoppable. But yes, testing will be required. Never go into the field with untested equipment. If you must, find a convenient time to test it as soon as possible. If necessary, we can attempt to deploy some target drones to your location. "

( INTERNAL MEMO: Our science division is cautioning us against deploying so many random ideas at once. It seems our Visitor has a nasty habit of just cramming all the ideas together. This could lead to some very dangerous designs, if we are not careful. Council, how do you feel about this? Also we are requesting permission to deploy [TIER 0 ACTION FIGURES] for target practice. They are Unarmed, Unarmored Soft Targets that resemble humanoids with monitors for heads. We do not want to mobilize any sort of non-council units without permission. )

Internal letter adressed in reply to the letter of the Not-A-Bear.

I think I find ourselves in favor of deplpoying them! However, I feel as if maybe deploying items may be the cause of the brief static in Audrey's words. Perhaps we should lay low for a while? In any case, it would still be favorable to have decoys.

And perhaps before submitting anything to be brought in the world, do you believe we should hold a discussion first? Less danger would be wise. Similar to something like this discussion would be good.

I also agree to the action figures. Should be nice, safe target practice.

Plus, agreeing on one thing should let us see what happens when, well. we agree.
