The Serpent spit flames at them. Its target was Alisa.
By just a hair’s breadth, Lutz was able to shield her from the flames with his mantle.
“Goddamned snake bastard!” Tyrone came in from behind and swung his ax, severing the Serpent’s head! (+1 COMBAT P, +50 MESETA)
“Lutz, you’re hurt.”
“It’s just a small burn. I’m not very good with physical labor,” admitted Lutz. (-1 HP)
“But you were great back there. A second later and she probably would have been toasted,” said Tyrone.
“It was just a fluke. Okay then, once we get through these woods, we’ll be at the village of Gothic.”
The group has returned back to the village of Gothic.
“Dr. Luveno, we wanted to meet with you because we would like to request you build a spaceship for us,” said Lutz, breaking the ice.
“Without being able to freely travel the three planets, we are unable to find La Shiec.”
“Very well. However, the cost of production will be 200 meseta. Are you able to pay?”
The group arrived at the village of Gothic.
(It is possible to get treatment at the local Hospital. Pay 10 Meseta for +2 HP)
They visited Dr. Luveno’s house, but it was so empty that not even a mouse stirred. According to the other villagers, the doctor was said to have gone insane and was thrown into Triada Prison.
“That seems really suspicious. Well, anyway, let’s try going to that prison,” Alisa said.
“The prison has two different entrances,” said Lutz, pointing to a map he drew in the ground.
Alisa used the polymeteral on the scrap heap. It has quite a strong effect; the scrap heap starts to melt into a pile of ooze and mud. Only things made out of Laconia remained.
“I found him! Do you think this robot is Hapsby?” Alisa asked.
“It’s not moving. Should I try kicking it?”
“S–stop that, please,” the robot suddenly stood up. “My name is Hapsby. I was constructed by Dr. Luveno.”
Thus, having recovered Hapsby, Alisa and the others returned to the village of Gothic.
(You can visit the village hospital. Pay 20 MESETA to increase HP by 5.)
When visiting the Doctor’s house, they received an introduction to the spaceship Luveno. Hapsby, the pilot-robot, joined the party. Now they can travel anywhere in the Algol Star System!
