Times Silent Keeper
And the Lively Hallows!
Location: Battleon » Warlic's Shop » Quests » Barry Jotter! » Lively Hallows Pt. 1
«You»: (thinking) Ahhh! A quiet day in Battleon. Maybe a little too quiet?
«A messenger enters the scene.»
Messenger: «You», I've found you!
«You»: *sigh* I just had to open my mouth.
Messenger: Barry Jotter asked me to deliver this message to you!
«You»: Barry? Oh, Warlic's "nephew". *double sigh* I'm sure this is GREAT news.
Take the note!
«The note reads:»
I am having a picnic in the
Greenguard Forest and
it if you could join me
«You»: (thinking) A picnic? That seems simple enough. And I haven't eaten lunch yet. Sure, why not?
«You encounter some monsters on the way to Greenguard.»
8 BATTLES Barry Jotter: Hi «You»! I'm glad you could come to our picnic!
Full Heal after battles #2, #4, #6 and #8
«You»: Hey, Barry. And yeah, someone has to protect the forest from the results of your picnicking.
??? (Lemony): *SNORT* Hehehehe. You sure know our friend Barry!
??? (Lemony): If anyone is expecting a lighthearted frolic in the woods, they shouldn't. This won't end well. I predict a clearly unmitigated disaster.
??? (Henrietta): Be nice, Lemony!
Barry Jotter: It's okay, Henrietta. It's true, I don't exactly have a very good record with this sort of thing.
"Lemony": Hehehehe. THAT is a massive understatement. Remember the time you blew up the dormitory? It was an outright tragedy! Juan's poor otter!
Barry Jotter: I keep telling you, that wasn't me! I just was in the wrong place at the wrong time! Besides, she was not even in the building!
"Lemony": Then what happened to her, Barry?
Barry Jotter: There was this... vortex and....
"Lemony": Pfft. Yeah, blame it on the vortex.
«You»: Want to introduce us to your friends, Barry?
Barry Jotter: Yeah, of course! This is Henrietta Ranger. She is a Manger.
«You»: Isn't that a place for feeding livestock?
Henrietta: Barry means I am a Mage-Ranger. I combine the arts in simultaneous practice.
«You»: Impressive! How do you manage that?
«You»: Naturally. And your other friend, Barry?
Barry Jotter: Lemony Snicker, Magi-scientist Extraordinaire! With a wicked wit and an unmitigated sense of doom.
Lemony: Hehehehe, I wasn't always so glum. But when you are friends with Barry, you learn that things happen.
Hans: (simultaneously) That's sure true...
Aria: (simultaneously) That's sure true...
Lemony: But he does have a good heart!
Henrietta: If only that translated!
«You»: Have you considered contacting the Leprechaun Nation? Sounds like you need some fortuions.
Barry Jotter: We did! I'm constantly consuming fortuions. I need it to survive.
«You»: Then why such bad luck, Barry?
Henrietta: We don't know! Our best theory is that Barry might naturally generate his own misfortuions.
«You»: That certainly is... unfortunate?
Lemony: You're telling us!
Henrietta: At least we're never bored?
Lemony: That's true! Life with Barry is one big sequence of unfortunate circumstances.
«The scene fades to black. Several hours later...»
Aria: Unfortunately, I need to get back home. It's getting late, and I need to feed the animals.
Hans: This was actually quite nice!
Lemony: Yeah, I hate to admit it but it was really fun! I guess my prophecy of doom was overstated.
«You»: It was enjoyable. It was a pleasure to meet you, Henrietta and Lemony!
Henrietta: The feeling's mutual, «You». It's not every day you get to meet a Chosen of Lore.
«Everyone goes their separate ways after the picnic. As Barry, Henrietta and Lemony move along in Greenguard, Barry realizes something.»
Barry Jotter: Oh, no....
Henrietta: What is it, Barry?
Barry Jotter: Oh no oh no oh no--
Lemony: *SNORT* Hehehe! I told you it was too good to be true. What terrible disaster have you wrought upon the world today, Barry?
Barry Jotter: I lost my bag of Gertie Motts Multi-Flavor Beans!
Lemony: Is that all? Seriously??
Henrietta: Come on, Barry. We can get you some more when we get back to Frogwartz.
Barry Jotter: But what if some poor animal eats them and gets sick?
Lemony: If that is the worst disaster we have today, I consider it an absolute miracle!
«The scene fades to black. Back at where the group had their picnic, Juan enters the scene with his pet Gween, which quickly starts munching on the bag of Multi-Flavor Beans left behind by Barry.»
Juan: Barry Jotter 'as bin here berry recently. The time shall soon come for justice.
Juan: Barry Jotter, I am Juan Mongoose. You keeled my otter. Prepare to die!
Juan: Wat 'ave you found, my Gween... oh no... candy!
«Back at Battleon, Hallows can be seen running rampant, some hiding in the bushes.»
Barry Jotter: They're everywhere! There is no way we can make it back to Frogwartz now! Juan has gone off his rocker!
Henrietta: That happened a long time ago, after the dorm--
Lemony: *SNORT* Heheehe! I just knew it; this will be an utter travesty!
Barry Jotter: Don't you mean an otter travesty?
«You enter the scene.»
«You»: Oh no! What's going on?
«Aria enters the scene.»
Aria: We have a problem - my shop's been overrun by Hallows!
«You»: What? Who would feed Gweens candy?!
«A pebble flies across the scene and hits Barry right on his face.»
Juan: Barry Jotter, it is I, Juan Mongoose.
«Juan enters the scene.»
Barry Jotter: Ouch... Yes, I know who you are, Juan.
Juan: You keeled my otter. Prepare to die!
Juan: I will 'ave my vengeance... when next we meet, Barry Jotter!
«Juan takes a leap and exits the scene.»
Lemony: Barry! Go get the lemon juice! I'll prepare the Mega-Saturator!
«Barry rushes off to get lemon juice.»
«You»: Lemon juice?
Henrietta: An idea Lemony and I came up with. We need to negate the sugary effects of the candy on Juan's Hallow. That SHOULD return them to their normal Gween state.
«The scene fades to black. Over at Warlic's shop...»
Barry Jotter: (thinking) Not enough? Hmm.... Well, here's some sweetened lime juice. That's like lemon. It should be fine if I mix them....
«The scene fades to black, and the To be continued... message appears. The Lively Hallows shop then opens. Once you exit the shop, you are returned to Battleon.»
