The Hunt For Ragn Valdr

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

The Hunt For Ragn Valdr

Post by MadMario » Sun Apr 19, 2020 4:52 pm

Part I

Previously...

Image
An old abandoned blacksmith shop, somewhere. Everything is silent, except some footsteps approaching...




Image
Protector: "Seems empty. He´s not here, like we assumed."

Ameeno Asyd: "Good. Let´s have a look!"




Image
The CSA scientist enters the blacksmith, after the Protector secured the room.

"He was here recently. And according to the amount of valuable stuff and tools he left behind, he will come back here as well."




Image
"Shall we secure the contraband? Take the transparent materials with us?"

"By no means. We have what we need. From here, we can trace the residues of the Maniac Beers, and this will sooner or later lead us to him!"




Image
"Leave everything as we found it. Let some of your men observe the place. We´ll follow the traces, and we already have our next target!"

"Yes, Ma´am."

Part II

Previously...

Image
Skirts of the wood, somewhere else. Again, approaching footsteps are the only sound.




Image
"Ma´am, if I understand you correctly, the traces of Maniac Beer led us here from the Blacksmith, but... this here happened earlier? Even before he possessed any of the Maniac Beer? How is that possible?"




Image
"You need to think outside the box. You are too stuck in concepts like time and continuity. The Maniac Beers can be traced forwards and backwards in what we know as 'time', because they are responsible for all Rekonnektions and Retkonnektions that ever happened."


Image
The scientist and her Protectores come to halt in front of a hastily dug grave.

"...and what happened here was a turning point in Valdrs life. Here he killed his business partner for base motives. That´s why the traces have very strong connections here. Now the traces of the Maniac Beers work like a spiderweb. If he moves somewhere, the 'strings' vibrate. And if we follow these vibrations, we´ll find him."




Image
"Your move, Ragn Valdr!"

The fact you managed to perfectly recreate my blacksmith had me checking my shelves to see if mine was still freaking there.

You scary ass genius. I have to up my building game and actually make something resembling an army now.

Oh, It IS yours. I put it back before you noticed. :warhead:

Better be quick. The CSA is hard on your heels... :srs:

We´ll see where this leads. Maybe post a sequel here, and we watch how Valdr and the CSA forge the fortune of the Maniac Beer storyline.

This was already an amazing storyline, but this... this is on the next level!
Going to someone’s house and stealing their builds just for a soap is a serious commitment and I really look forward to see where this will go
Keep up the good work

Time to get me a guard dog...Or five.

As for the CSA, if they keep sending cute scientists like Ameeno after him, Ragn really won't mind. For those less charming to his tastes, there's always measures like L-MO!

Story-wise I'll need a bit more prep time (hectic week) and brainstorming, but this is getting more fun with each follow-up.
