[ZA] Where did it go?

TS: ULYRIS, Era XXV

The Principality of Moonstone has recently received word that strange behavior has been reported in a nearby forest. The region is phasing in and out of existence, and the area in which this is occurring is reportedly expanding. Investigate and solve the issue if possible.
 


There wasn't enough information back in the garden at that time, it was probably because there wasn't enough people gathered there so early in the morning.

Where do people gather information about a disappearing forest? The gnome asked himself. There were several answers to this question and Sima was on his way to check one.

The Pub.

It was where adventurers go and in his experience, where information about disappearing forests should gather.

Sima climbed a bar stool and ordered himself a pint of ale. There wasn't many patrons in the place for obvious reasons. There were a few drunk patrons on the floor... they could be drunk or already dead, the bartender didn't really mind.

He took out his tarot cards and started shuffling as he sorted thoughts about the investigation in his head. He took one card from his deck.

"The moon?" He stared at the card for some time as he reflected on what it could mean.

Summer. It was time for Alphonsus to return to his own job in Medonia, but as chance had it, he decided to visit a pub to find out more about some disappearing forest. It might be worth investigating, especially after exploring a glass forest not long ago. It might all be connected

As he entered the pub, he quickly noticed a gnome. A gnome in a pub didn't really interest the elf, but a gnome playing with cards alone that interest him. Maybe he could play a hand or two before while waiting for more patron to appear. That would be good.

He was about the greet the gnome when he saw the cards were tarot. That interested him even more. "Serale friend. What does the future holds?"

"Shrouded in illusion. We fear that which we cannot comprehend." Sima said as he showed the moon card to the elf who approached him. He looked up and looked the elf with his perpetually sleepy eyes.

"Serale." He greeted the elf as he returned the card back to his deck and started shuffling his cards.

"I don't expect the investigation of the disappearing forest to be easy and I guess the card is giving a fair warning." He said to himself then he laid the card on top of the bar counter and reached for his ale (both done while he was seated, he added length to his hand so he can reach the stuff he needed to reach.)

"What can I do for you? Here to get your fortune told?" Sima asked the elf.

Alphonsus looked at the card. Yes. It was a moon alright.

"You are also looking at investigating the disappearing forest?" He asked in a surprise. He hadn't thought a tarot reader would be interested in such a mystery. On second thoughts, the tarot reader should be interested in the mystery of the vanishing forest.

"Hmmm... my fortune? I rather not have my future lock in the cards, but why not." The elf chuckled and extended his hand to introduce himself first. "Alphonsus."

"Sima." He wasn't really sure why he would entrust his name with an elf he just met, his name just came out of his mouth.

"Don't think of the cards as locks, this is just your chances telling you choices. Whether to heed the card's advise or not is a choice." Sima said to Alphonsus as he started shuffling the cards.

"The moon for example is but a question of whether we should let ourselves be distracted by the unknown or a challenge for us to bring that which lurks in the darkness into light." He continued his explanation as he continued the shuffling, maintaining eye contact with the elf.

"In connection with that which I seek at the moment, the moon serves both as a warning, a challenge, and a chance to reflect and illuminate the darkness." Sima then stopped shuffling.

"'Also', does that mean you too are after the mystery of the forest that's been phasing in and out?" Sima asked.

"Pick a card."

Alphonsus listened to Sima's explanation on the meaning of the moon card and nodded.

"Yes, it means I am going after the mystery of the phrasing forest. Do you have any idea what is causing the mystery?" He looked at the deck of shuffled cards and picked the one right on top.

"The one on top."
