Miss Fixit's Letter
<Character>: *Reads* "Dear <Character>..."
<Character>: *Reads* "Please meet me out..."
<Character>: It's weird, I've never thought about how much trouble random letters left with Ash tend to get me into.
<Character>: Maybe I shouldn't be so quick to run into the woods at the request of strangers. Nah, what's the wo--
<Character>: *sigh* ...worst that could happen?
<Character>: Thunk?! Thunk's NEVER a good noise.
*You are hovering over a pit.*
<Character>: I'm standing over a pit arn't I?
*You fall into the pit.*
Some Time Later
<Character>: I should have realized that was a bad idea. What's the worst that could happen? Seriously?
<Character>: That's like saying "What Dragon?" ASKING for trouble.
Aelthai: Oh! A Victim!
Aelthai: Sorry, I meant specimen. You aren't hurt are you? Thank you for volenteering for the experiment!
<Character>: Experiment? What experiment? Who are you? What's going on?
Aelthai: I'm Aelthai, or Miss Fixit if you like, and I'm sorta responsible for making things fun. It's hard to explain. Better if you don't think about it too much.
<Character>: Sorry, I just happened to fall IN A HOLE!
<Character>: That I don't see any way OUT OF.
<Character>: And it seems you're the one keeping me PRISONER!
Aelthai: Not a prisoner...just running a bit of an experiment. Thanks again for your help, are you ready to begin?
<Character>: Don't suppose I have much of a choice, huh?
Aelthai: We're going to put you against some newly...er... trained? monsters and see how you do.
Aelthai (to self): Yes, trained will raise less questions then coded. Right choice.
Aelthai: All of these guys have key to the next room. All you have to do is defeat one of them. Good luck!
*Battle specially coded Sandstones that can run away.*
If a Sandstone runs away:
Aelthai: Didn't see that coming, did you?!
Aelthai: These beasts start trying to run when they're hurt. What can we do to fix that? Try again!
Once you defeat a Sandstone:
Aelthai: Alright! Good job. Lets see how you deal with the next challenge!
Aelthai: Oh! This one's fun. If you kill him too fast, he'll fully recover his health. Wear him out for 10 rounds or you'll lose the fight in the end!
Aelthai: If you want some advice, I'd wait until I was in the clear before I started to unload damage on him.
Aelthai: Good Luck!
*Battle a specially coded Boulder Elemental that won't die unless you wait ten rounds.*
If you kill the Boulder Elemental too quickly, this message appears:
"The monster recovers and becomes enraged!"
Aelthai: I have a feeling that you mages won't like this guy.
Aelthai: Don't suppose the Warriors or Rogues will either to be fair. If I were you? I'd not use any mana.
Aelthai: Best to slug it out on him and be done. Trust me. Good luck!
*Battle a specially coded Sandstone that fully heals and becomes stronger if you use MP.*
If you use MP, this message appears:
"He didn't like you using mana. He has become Enraged!"
Aelthai: And finally, for now, lets say hello to this guy. I've started calling him Frank.
Aelthai: I've discovered they respond better when you identify with them.
Aelthai: I'd pick the gear you'll take into battle carefully, because Frank doesn't respond well to changes in gear. Even pet changes might spook him.
Aelthai: Good luck! I know you can do it!
*Battle Frank who gains more HP and becomes stronger if you change any items.*
If you change any items during the battle, this message appears:
"Frank does not like that. He has become enraged!"
Aelthai: Well now, that wasn't so bad was it?
Aelthai: I should expect to see these newly trained monsters starting to show up in quests soon!
Aelthai: Thunk? Thunks NEVER a good noise! Look's like Frank, er, got better? And he looks MAD!
Aelthai: Might want to bring some friends in on this one!
Invite Friends by ID!
After defeating Frank:
Aelthai: There now, that wasn't so bad was it?
<Character>: You mean I'm done? Really?
Aelthai: Yup. I'd call that experiment basically successful! Thanks for all your help!
Aelthai: But what about Frank coming back?!
Aelthai: BASICALLY a success!
Aelthai: Anyways, feel free to leave whenever you're done!
Aelthai: What do you mean how? I left the door open you could have left whenever you wanted-
Aelthai: Wait. Humans. You can fly right?
Aelthai: Uh... no?
Aelthai: Right...Well then, here you go!
*A ladder is lowered below, allowing you to climb out of the pit.*
