Quest - Witch's Lab Edit

1.The Busy Professor Edit

Welcome! I see that the advert I placed with Messe has proven quite worthwhile. I hadn't expected that my new assistant would come from so far away, however. Hm? You're not my assistant? Well, little matter. Perhaps you haven't come to work under my employ, but you have the look of someone in search of a job. So? Have I the right of it? Let's not dawdle, then. I do hope I'm not too forward, but I have some tasks for you. ~ As a matter of fact... I was in the middle of the most fascinating experiment, when quite unexpectedly, my spiral measuring cylinder and levitation beaker flew right off the table and into the wall. Of course, I have just the spell to mend it, but I find myself short on the necessary materials. Might you be so kind as to fetch me some Ashen Crystals?

Mission: Ashen Crystal x5

~

Well done. I suppose you find it peculiar that such a trifling misstep should require so much glass to repair. Hmph! You should take care not to get the wrong impression. Take the amount of glass I had you gather as a measure of the importance and danger of my experimentation. Even when I fail... fail like... Oh, never mind. Anyway! Thank you. Hm.

Reward:

  • Experience: 7,000
  • Gold: 10,000

2.Burnt Books Edit

To be perfectly frank with you... My errors may seem perfectly disastrous from the outside, but to me, they're naught but minor setbacks. Oh, don't look at me like that. I've nothing to hide. You seem eager to get on with things. I suppose I've prattled on long enough. Fine. This should be a simple enough task. ~ During today's earlier mishap, I seem to have burnt some of the library's books just a touch. Fortunately, no rare or valuable books were damaged. Please fetch me 5 Books: Mana Drain [I] They're elementary texts we use to train young witches.

Mission: Book: Mana Drain [I] x5

~

Hm, thank you. Ah. My experiments have been failing with increasing regularity of late. It's quite vexing. I've searched for the cause, but my duties as head librarian and magic research professor have kept me quite busy. It wouldn't do to continue failing in front of my students, now would it? I've dismissed them for the time being. I had been hoping an adventurous, reliable assistant such as yourself would appear for some time now. ...sorry? Might I have sent my students away for their own safety? Well... Hm, well, it is a possibility. It's not really that dangerous, I assure you. For someone such as myself, these missteps are quite petty, I assure you.

Reward:

  • Experience: 7,000
  • Gold: 10,000

3.Late Introduction Edit

I suppose I should formally introduce myself. My name is Rose. I have been charged with managing the Magic Library of Night Shadow and studying the high magic here. The students here view me as one of their professors. I study all of the magic that the witches here learn, and make it more accessible to outsiders. Were it not for my efforts, there wouldn't be nearly as many witches in the world as there are today. You may call me whatever you please. You are simply my guest, and your work here is temporary. The Magic Library of Night Shadow is a vast collection of magical knowledge, and one of the world's foremost centers of magical research. The books here are not available for just anyone to read, and the experiments are open only to the most qualified. I think we can make an exception for you, given your unorthodox position as my assistant in this matter. ~ Use this Library Card. It will allow you the access you'll need to further assist me.

Mission: Use Library Card x1

~

Alright, fine. Well done. The card I just gave you can sense if the user is not qualified to be in this library. If you felt nothing, we may proceed. Oh, and if it had so happened that you were not qualified to be here? You would have been tossed from the library like a common rag doll. Perhaps it seems callous of me to eject the unwanted so forcefully. But how could I allow weak persons who could not even endure the my experiments to remain? Rather, should I not make sure they are removed from the grounds forthwith? Don't give me that look. We have greater things to think about than the comfort of the weak! Hmph!

Reward:

  • Experience: 7,000
  • Gold: 10,000
  • Item: Library Card x1

4.Unhelpful Servant Horse Edit

Enough idle chatter. We must continue my experiments immediately. The essence of my current project is not difficult to grasp. I'm developing magic that might allow us to view specific moments in the past. Thus far, we've only been able to conjure up vague, blurry images of past events. That simply won't do. We must be able to clearly see, hear, and feel whatever we scry! It should feel as though one was literally stepping through time! Of course, I've heard reports of mysterious time leaps throughout the land. I will be the one who develops this magic through research and experimentation, and I'll develop it for mass use! If we can manage to get clear results, this should cause quite a stirring in the academic world. Oh, I do seem to have gotten carried away. Anyway, I was conducting a similar experiment before I began to look into time warps. If I use my old findings as a sort of guidepost, perhaps my next experiment will find more success. However, I haven't heard from the magical servants I sent to retrieve my thesis. I've become so busy cleaning up after my mistakes that I can't even keep track of my own servants! I haven't the time, so I shall leave this matter to you. ~ If you have the right reference, you can find any book in this library easily. Take this reference. Go to the small library near the Magic Library of Night Shadow. If you use the reference there, a sluggish Shelf Cleaner Imp will pop out. He will have the thesis that I want.

Mission: Rose's Thesis No. 231 x1

~

Yes, this is the thesis I was looking for. Let me see... Yes, yes. I should prepare a beaker of purple mandrake enzyme no. 32, then raise the density from 0.32 ppmn to 0.33 ppmn... Hm... And I should examine the solidity of the S81 refractive transilluminating crystal ball more closely. I would love to get my hands on an actual S82, but the budget is... Ugh.

Reward:

  • Experience: 8,500
  • Gold: 35,000
  • Item: Magic Thesis Reference No. 42 x1

5.To See the Past Edit

I suppose I could let you in on why I'm so eager to see the past. You know Vivian, the Grand Magician in charge of educating the young witches here, don't you? She is actually my younger sister. Yes, yes, I'm well aware that there is little family resemblance. Anyway, I've discovered that my sister was in a bit of trouble. It seems this had been going on for quite some time, mind. I'm dying to know what is troubling her, but I can't seem to swallow my pride enough to ask her myself. Now, I'm not just doing this to protect her from further pain. Hm. I have resolved to look into Vivian's past and put an end to whatever is troubling her. Frankly speaking, her unending depressed expression has been an endless source of irritation for me of late. And as her sister, I suppose I'm somewhat worried, too. The history of witches may be rooted in melancholy, but that doesn't make it any more tolerable. ~ Let's gather our tools, shall we? Given the particular subject matter we're investigating, I do have one other excellent assistant. If you look over there, you'll see Cheshire. He used to grin like an idiot constantly, but since I've put him to work he hasn't had the time. Please get a Dimensional Clairvoyant Crystal Ball from Cheshire.

Mission: Dimensional Crystal Ball x1

~

Hm, great. Very good. Cheshire did well in making this crystal ball, and you did well in delivering it safely to me. With this in hand, I should be able to do without an S82 crystal ball. Now, I shall use this crystal ball to peer into the past. Please take a step back.

Reward:

  • Experience: 7,000
  • Gold: 10,000

6.Failure Again! Edit

... What went wrong? Am I doomed to fail yet again? Oh, you saw that? Hmph. It's not a complete failure. I was able to view the point in the past I was looking for, and watch with some difficulty- No, I mean, with ease. Vivian was seeing a handsome magician. I could tell from the way she looked at him that she had strong feelings. As they were talking, she burst into tears. I tried to take a closer look, but the magic reversed itself on me quite suddenly. Perhaps I was too hasty. I should take this one step at a time. But... but. Hm... is it alright? Oh well. Had I pushed forward, I might have been dragged in... ~ Since I touched the very fabric of time and space, an invisible distortion has appeared in the area. No need to worry. With the right materials, and a touch of magic, I can set it right. Please bring me some Earth Element Shard.

Mission: Earth Element Shard x200

~

Very good. You needn't worry about the repercussions of our meddling with time and space. I have it under control. And, we've learned something interesting from this latest experiment. Vivian was having a hard time winning her love. What a girl.

Reward:

  • Experience: 7,000
  • Gold: 10,000

7.The Result of Intensive Research... Edit

However, we still don't know any of the details. I need to quickly complete my theory in order to firmly grasp the past. Hm. However, I see no logical error in my hypothesis, and the materials used seem to be more than satisfactory. Perhaps it is time to look beyond the scope of my own research. Someone else may have discovered something useful that we can use. ~ There are many other magic scholars in our world... Of course, none of them are as good as I am. Surely somebody out there is studying this. I should refer to their theses. Take this Exchange Certificate. Find Messe and return with the the Latest Magic Thesis Collection.

Mission: Latest Magic Thesis Collection x1

~

Good work. Messe is always so reliable. Okay, let me see what we have here.

Reward:

  • Experience: 7,000
  • Gold: 10,000
  • Item: Magic Thesis Exchange Certificate x1

8.Oh, This Is It! Edit

Now what have we here? So that's where we went wrong.. Wait a second. This reagent... Hmm, the budget is a little... Oh, don't you worry. No matter what we face, I can find a solution! Now that I think of it, today's error occurred because I moved forward only looking at my plan, and not the realities of the experiment itself. With some small adjustments, we should be that much closer to success. ~ We'll need some additional materials, I'm afraid. I've got almost everything I need in the lab sideboard. Please bring me some Magical Feathers from the Magic Owls around the west end of Berne.

Mission: Magic Feather x30

~

There we go. I do hope I haven't put you through too much trouble. I do hope Messe doesn't take offense at us capturing his fellow owls.

Reward:

  • Experience: 12,500
  • Gold: 45,000

9.Time-Space Assist Edit

Now that I've made some corrections to my plans, I think it would be best to find a strong assistant. I can most certainly manage this by myself, but the need for clarity and precision makes me think an assistant would be useful. I must write my thesis. ~ Oh, I don't mean to hire another person to help me along. I need a magical being that can help stabilize time and space while I do my work. Cheshire will know what I'm talking about. Please ask him to find a magical being with the ability to cross time and space.

Mission: Gremlin's Egg Pouch x1

So, these baby gremlins are to assist me? Very well. I shall loose these gremlins in the gap of time and space. If they're from Cheshire] they should be effective.. These baby gremlins and I will gather information for a while. Please wait!

Reward:

  • Experience: 7,000
  • Gold: 10,000

10.It's Complicated Edit

Oh hoho. Very good! Success, at last! The baby gremlins and I succeeded in gathering information on Vivian from back then. ~ Please, take a look at the results of my experiment. Read this Note. This is just a brief summary. Please read it.

Mission: Read Vivian's Tormented Note

Vivian's Tormented Note>

Vivian was fascinated with Merlin. His magic skills surpassed hers, he was charming, and he had a level mind. While they were on a trip to find materials for their magic studies, Vivian could no longer hide her true feelings.

Vivian, weakened by the sad fate and history of the witches, decided to depend upon Merlin. However, Merlin was not ready to reciprocate, and he felt overwhelmed by her blind love for him.

Vivian's love became bitter passion, and bitter passion changed to obsession. In the end, she kidnapped and locked up Merlin. Merlin escaped while Vivian was mired in her own confusion. He hid somewhere where Vivian could never find him.

However, he didn't have to. Vivian already felt the weight of guilt for what she had done to Merlin. Her love for him only made the pain so much deeper.

~

Are you finished? It's such a sad story. Before Vivian ever had a chance to apologize, the handsome magician died of an unfortunate accident.

Reward:

  • Experience: 7,000
  • Gold: 10,000
  • Item: Vivian's Tormented Note x1

11.It Must Be Nothing Edit

The solution is obvious. I shall simply revive him and return him to Vivian. Reviving the dead is no difficult task. I'm left to wonder why my sister didn't think of it earlier. ~ The fact that he's been dead for so long complicates matters, but that shouldn't prove too difficult a hurdle to overcome. Your assistance will once again be necessary, as my materials will need to be fresh. Make some Pink Aroma Base. I'll give you the recipe for it.

(HINT: My Info > Skills > Quest Crafting.)

Mission: Craft Pink Aroma Base x50

Very good. Now you may stand back and enjoy the spectacle of the dead returning to life! ... That's odd. How could so simple a spell fail? I suppose you think reviving the dead isn't so simple. Of course, that's what most people think. Such a task is a simple matter for one such as I! I must find the cause of my failure. Let me see... Oh. I've never seen a soul that had so thoroughly lost its will to live. What could have caused this?

Reward:

  • Experience: 9,500
  • Gold: 35,000

12.Let's Change the Past! Edit

However! Hope is not yet lost. It is time to play my best card. I had hoped to save this for my ultimate thesis. I shall change the past itself! I developed a theory on how to change history as I was writing the note I gave you earlier. I'm sure you're wondering what exactly I plan to change. It's a trifling matter, really. I shall simply prevent the accident that claimed the life of the man Vivian loved. This way, she will have the opportunity to apologize to him. She won't have to live in such agony. Ah, did Cheshire warn you against this? We've nothing to worry about. I'm not trying to change the flow of history, I'm simply preventing a single death. ~ Shall we begin? The baby gremlins are already in place, and I've prepared for any distortions in time and space that may crop up. Still... I find myself daunted. No one has pushed magical theory to this point before today! Of course, I can do this. If you wouldn't mind, I'll go on your mark. I'll begin when you say Start.

Mission: Answer Let's Change the Past! question > Start

~

... Ugh. Why isn't it working? Have... have you been here this whole time? How long has it been? What? It's been only a few minutes? How peculiar. I found myself adrift between time and space for several hours. The moment I found myself at my destination, I tried to cast recovery magic to stop the accident... And then the space around me distorted, and here I am.

Reward:

  • Experience: 7,000
  • Gold: 10,000

13.Why do I keep failing? Edit

The fact that I found myself so far off course likely means that the time reversal and distortion may be more serious than I had initially supposed. Methinks I should repair the situation before it gets any worse. I suppose now is the time to mention that this... is a big deal. ~ Element Shards were all we needed before, but this time I require a more complete material. Please fetch one Earth Element as soon as you can.

Mission: Earth Element x1

~

Thank you. This should let me repair the fine distortion that has opened across the planet's crust...

Reward:

  • Experience: 7,000
  • Gold: 10,000

14.What's this interruption? Edit

I'm certain my theory was perfect this time. The experiment procedure was perfect. I've already been to my destination once, and the young gremlins' power is without question. Even if causality is at fault here, the reaction was far stronger than normal. Perhaps Vivian has put some mechanism in place to hinder my progress? I do feel badly for my sister, but we must press on. I may be the manager of this library, but it is not as though I can read Vivian's documents freely. It shan't hurt to take a quick peek, however. ~ This Reference will allow you access to more private theses. There are no doubt guardians in place to protect my sister's thesis, but don't hesitate to use force if necessary. You will find her thesis on the Bookcase near the Cheshire cat.

Mission: Vivian's Thesis No. 3 x1

~

Good job. You needn't worry yourself about the guardian. I shall restore it later. Hm. Why must she be so obstinate in keeping her pain hidden?

Reward:

  • Experience: 8,500
  • Gold: 35,000
  • Item: Secret Thesis Reference No. 8 x1

15.Taking Care of the Gremlins Edit

...Oh my. Hm, this complicates things. I seem to have made some mistakes. Vivian's thesis makes it clear. For now, we should halt our research into traversing time and space. I'll explain once we've taken care of the baby gremlins we loosed earlier. As we're done interfering with the flow of time and space, it won't do to leave them be. ~ We should enlist the help of Cheshire to expedite things. Please ask him to clear out the baby gremlins.

Mission:

Oh, you made it back. I trust the baby gremlins have been taken care of? Thank you. However, it's a little too late. My sister Vivian discovered what we've been up to.

Reward:

  • Experience: 7,000
  • Gold: 10,000

16.Caught Edit

I suppose it doesn't matter how perfect my theory was. My experiment can never succeed if I'm trying to change the past. Especially if it's something to do with my sister. Causality is only part of the reason why. Vivian's involvement is more important. Poor girl. Still, she needn't have been so hard on me. Oh yes, she was quite angry. She came to visit me while you were gone, and she already knew everything. She told me I had no business digging up her past. It was then that I realized my mistake. And yet, I couldn't show her my true feelings. As her big sister, I can't help it. ~ She handed me this Confession Note and left. You should read it, too. Hmph.

Mission: Read Vivian's Confession

Vivian's Confession>

I don't want to bother Merlin anymore. Though he died before I coud express my love for him, I don't want to end my sadness. I don't want to be that selfish. The heartbreaking pain and memories of him are dear and precious to me.

That pain carried me through as I brought up our lovely young witches. It was a sad but beautiful love. Even though it still causes me pain, I don't want to change my past. Even if I have the power, I don't want to alter the history that so many people and creatures now share.

So I placed a kind of arcane lock on it... No one ever knew about my problem so far... I feel a little mad at my sister who tried to find it out. Please, I'm asking you. Don't play god with time and space for such a personal reason.

~

Hm. I suppose I'm a little sorry. As I've told you... My goal is the exploration of time and space... There, I said it. As a matter of fact, my magnum opus was supposed to be this thesis on time-space. Helping my little sister is nowhere near my only goal. I was only thinking of my research... Hm.

Reward:

  • Experience: 7,000
  • Gold: 10,000
  • Item: Vivian's Confession x1

17.To Apologize Edit

I won't hide it any longer. Certainly, I did do something wrong. Even though it is part of my research, I should not have interfered with the flow of time. However, I do want to at least summon the soul of that handsome magician and make up with my sister. That won't damage her precious memories, will it? Summoning his soul won't have any impact on the flow of time, and I doubt she's placed any sort of lock on that magic. ~ Summoning a soul that passed so long ago is no simple task. However, it is an order of magnitude easier than manipulating space and time. As my assistant, please aid me in this matter. There's a dream demon called Succubus in the Prison of Night, deep in the Devil's Forest. The Piece of Nightmare she has should prove helpful.

Mission: Piece of Nightmare x1

~

Thank you. This will be vital in not only summoning the magician's soul, but in cleansing the nightmares and broken hearts they still experience.

Reward:

  • Experience: 12,500
  • Gold: 45,000

18.The Last Experiment Edit

Fine. This shall be my final experiment. It's not very complicated, but it's never been attempted before, and I can't find any research thesis on this. The target of this enchantment is a strong magician's soul, and it's attached to powerful witch, Vivian. Moreover, he will be resistant to any summoning as he's lost the will to live. And I'm a stranger to him, a third party looking in. Hm, this should prove a very interest topic of research. I've only one task for you to do. Please prepare one material for me. I'll give you the recipe. ~ Gather the Grudge Tears from the Young Minotaurs and Sage Minotaurs in the Cretan Labyrinth,  and the Sad Soul's Breath from the Alloy Dolls in the Bran Castle Jail.  Then make a Secret Vial of Soul Retrieval by mixing them according to the recipe I've given you.

HINT: My Info > Skills > Quest Crafting.

Mission: Craft Secret Vial of Soul Retrieval x1

~

Very good. The effect will be temporary, but hopefully it will be enough for me to clear up this misunderstanding on behalf of my sister. Please wait a moment. ... Oh my. It seems I was a little late. I just met him... He told me he's been watching Vivian all along. However, he wanted to hide it from her, so that she would keep her resolve. Hm, perhaps this was yet another mistake. Oh well. At least I was able to gather some interesting data, and I've got the beginnings of a new thesis, so it was not for nothing.

Reward:

  • Experience: 10,500
  • Gold: 45,000

19.Painful Love Is Still Love Edit

I've felt a lot over the course of these last experiences. I was arrogant in trying to contradict causality, even if it was for research. I suppose it's a law of nature that shouldn't be broken, even if I have the power to do it. Now I think better of my sister Vivian. I think she has been able to become a Grand Magician by turning her heartbreak into an even greater love. ~ The witches Vivian is rearing possess great power. Of course, they are beings that should be protected with Love. As Vivian always stresses, I should remember her attitude. You must remember it too. What did I say the witches should be protected with?

Mission: Answer Painful Love Is Still Love question > Love

~

Yes, that's correct. Love.  Whether it is mesmerizing and exciting, or sad and dim, it is still love. Alright. If you have any of the witches we taught, please don't forget to give them Love. Please.
