The ship that weathered the torture of the elements to bring everyone here has definitely seen better days, but all aboard appear to be safe and sound! ...Outside of potentially feeling terribly ill and being soaked to the bone. Filing everyone off the battered boat, Bon moves ahead to address the Aetherians before the base of some very tall and intimidating looking cliffs.
An angry squeak announces a Surskit and Venonat before they emerge from a nearby patch of tall reeds growing near the base of the cliffs.
The frog starts with sure steps towards the cliff, and Nicholas lifts a brow in curiosity before following, the bug sisters as his side. As they reach the cliff-face, he’s able to see the narrow rock path zigzagging towards the peak, and he whistles low under his breath.
: Only if you want to get captured. The best thing for us to do is head for the rendezvous point your father told the others about. Hopefully they’ve figured out how to escape by then, and it will be a happy reunion for all.
Head to the rendezvous point by the guild headquarters and meet up with Alaric and (hopefully) the other group members. The guild headquarters is in Yagami’s house (in the center of the town by the harbor), and he will be expecting you, ready to welcome you with open wings.
To get there undetected is the main priority - and luckily, you have Bon and his farming friends to help. First, head to the rice field farm on top of the cliff, after climbing the rocky path; there, you will receive some farmer outfits from the workers. (Note: they are all Bug-types). Make sure your character is wearing these outfits at all times, since being seen by a guard without one will result in your capture.
Then, Bon, Aoi and Kyo will lead you (and Prince Nicholas) to the town, under the pretense of helping them deliver some rice to market. You will accompany them in a train of wagons, passing through several guard checks. No sudden movements or suspicious behavior; otherwise, the guards will notice and (you guessed it) end up putting you in chains. As you’re going through the guard checks, you might hear some gossip about the other warlords of Sazanami... This could be good intel for the future, especially since your original goal is patch up relationships between them. (See references on Aoi and Kyo below for more information. Your character can hear and/or discover the gossip described in any fashion you choose.)
Once in the town, Aoi and Kyo will depart with the wagons for the market while Bon takes you to Yagami’s house and the headquarters. Show your character arriving - but go no further, as Part 3 will pick up from there.
Bon has updated his map to give a general idea of the path you'll be traveling to reach Yagami. You can find it here!
Don’t forget, this mission is only available if you chose Bon’s path for Part 1! Happy sneaking, everyone!
