First topic message reminder :

The exterior of this place is unimpressive. It appears as a simple cave with two entrances closed off by stone doors, though they lead to the same place. There's a plaque in between, but the ancient text is too faded to read. The interior however remains a mystery as it's ever changing.

Freya unslings her spear, holding it before her as she enters the hole, having to hunch over slightly in order to fit. "Lady Rosewind, please be careful, we don't know what lies ahead."

"Venturing through the unnatural hole in the wall, the group eventually finds the cause of the empty building. What Shannon was looking for! A single Shade!" A spotlight focuses on a single basic shade in the middle of the room. It looks fairly pathetic and weak. "Look, I don't exactly have the budget for hordes of enemies or large scale dramatic fight scenes, so just...work with me here..."

"Welp, a Shade's a Shade, and I'm not one to provide a boring climax! Let's go!" Shannon spins dramatically, unsheathing her daggers mid-turn and leaping into the air, doing a grandiose vertical spin with blades extended, spinning fast enough to resemble a sharpened whirlwind as she bears down on the hapless Shade.

I... Do I need to attack at all? Lady Rosewind certainly appears talented enough to handle one Shade...
She stands by, on guard regardless, just in case more appear.

"Aaaaaand...their differences have been resolved. With the previous occupants of this theater avenged, our brave adventures no longer have a reason to remain. So they went back the way they came, and left through the now open front door."

"Ta-da! We beat the... game? Story? Performance? Well whatever the case, I had fun! Maybe I'll come back later and we'll have another story! Shall we go, miss Crescent?"

"I think we shall, Lady Rosewind." She says with a noticeable measure of relief. "I think I would like for us both to see sunlight again.
She then addresses the Narrator; "I would recommend accounting for deviations and more than one person at a time. And perhaps have the Gungnir next time you imply having it."

"Okay, all cards on the table, I have absolutely no idea what this Gungnir is. I'm a storyteller, not a treasure hunter. Frankly I don't know what at least half of those rumors about this place are all about. Keep in mind I've been here since as long as I can remember. Oh well...you're free to leave. Now if you'll excuse me, I should prepare for the next potential intruder...now where did I put those notes..." Papers can be heard rustling in the distance.

"Alright, see you again!" A quick wave to nothing in particular, and Shannon is off like a shot back the way they came. A very graceful shot, mind you. Before long, the warm glow of the sun welcomes the duo back outside, a fact that Shannon takes great pleasure in, spinning around with arms spread wide, laughing, and generally having a good time. "That was pretty unexpected, but I kind of enjoyed it!"

Freya smiles, removing her hat to let the sun touch her face. "Well, your appearance is about what made it better. Before you arrived, that voice had me going every which way yet always ending up back at the start."

"That's what I'd figured based on that narrator's little rant when I arrived. At least it got sorted out though. So! Now that we're out of that situation, let me formally introduce myself. My name is Shannon Rosewind, also known as the Rose of Burmecia. It's a pleasure to officially make your acquaintance." A deeper, more dramatic curtsy follows Shannon's introduction, accentuated by the warm chimes of her ever-present outfit.

"I am Freya Crescent, Dragon Knight of Burmecia." She says as she gives a formal, knightly bow. "And it is an honor to officially make the acquaintance of a veritable treasure of our homeland." She smiles sincerely. "Talk of Burmecia seems solely centered around you, after all. We dragon knights have had a difficult time competing."

"It's because of you all and your shining example that the people are in good enough spirits to enjoy performances like the ones I do. This is the first time I've traveled outside Burmecia however, and I am traveling alone. I just couldn't ignore the heartfelt plea I was sent to lift the peoples' spirits abroad as well as at home. And all the better if I can take out a few threats along the way. The knives aren't for show after all."

"Clearly not, with acrobatics like those. Incidentally, how does Burmecia fare?"

"Well enough. Prosporous, relatively cheerful. I can freely walk the streets unmolested in my dancing outfit. Not that it doesn't attract attention, but so far none of the ill-intentioned kind. Hopefully that's the case in this land too."

Freya frowns. "Did you have those kinds of problems before?"

"Nah, not really. The streets of Burmecia are pretty safe, all things considered. The militia keeps things orderly and there are places for people down on their luck to go to find shelter and seek gainful employment. So actual crime is pretty low, and dealt with quickly. It's a good system, and makes for happy citizens."

"That's good to hear... It wouldn't do for our home to turn out like Sparalong. I don't think I've ever felt so unsafe in a bed."

"One of my managers actually came from that situation, actually.  She's really nice, it makes me feel kind of bad for departing so suddenly.  Oh well, they know I'm alright.  And now I've met a Dragon Knight!  That little tidbit ought to spread like wildfire once it reaches Burmecian shores.  I hope you're looking forward to being famous, Freya!"

"Well, think about it! A proud and noble Dragon Knight, traveling foreign lands with the Rose of Burmecia, righting wrongs in their quest for the legendary Gungnir? People will EAT. IT. UP. Guaranteed! And that's just if Gungnir ISN'T found. NOW imagine if you actually found it here! I might be the one riding on YOUR curtails to fame and glory!" It's clear that the energetic dancer is getting excited and worked up as she talks, bouncing slightly in place with glee.

Freya takes a moment to imagine the sort of celebration and spectacle that would surround such an event. There would be quite a festival, to be sure, and probably a grand parade. A joyous welcoming for the ones who retrieved Gungnir. Drinks and dance, exotic imports and excellent music. A fine sort of occasion.
"So you say we should search together... I think I'd enjoy that." She offers a small smile. "It's been some time since I've had a traveling companion in any case, so this might do us both some good aside from just making a story."

"I was thinking that too, and who better than another Burmecian whose quest is keeping the people's hopes alive? Don't worry, I won't be a burden on you! I'm perfectly capable of fighting AND getting us the best deals on supplies and lodgings."

"I wouldn't think otherwise, after the stories and the demonstration earlier. You have a remarkable way of getting on someone's good side, it seems. And considering how you handled that lone Shade..."
She tactfully leaves out the part where she intentionally antagonized the Narrator.

"I'm actually better at fighting groups than I am fighting man-to-man. Good thing it mostly just seemed like that narrator... entity just wanted us out." Shannon's smile hasn't faded a bit as she claps her hands together. "So! Shall we walk and talk? No Gungnir to be found in there sadly, but I bet there are other avenues to pursue!"
