Episode 4: Sharpened Danger! In Moltkestraße
Daniel was already in Moltkestraße ready to report to Sergeant Swiftwillow, they had a lot of work to do since Richard Hawkeye was close now. They were near the port so that meant that their ships were there too, yet they weren't alone Angus Bartholomaus knows this place pretty well so he wanted to help them out. Sergeant Swiftwillow knows for a face that this place is well guarded, so there was no time for them to play around they started quickly.
|Good you've made it out here at an early time Daniel, now we can get to work out here near the harbor. For a start Angus Bartholomaus has told us that there is a secret building at the end of the harbor, that might be where Richard Hawkeye might be hiding for the moment. If we can get there we'll be able to give him a good message to give to the other members, but lets not get ahead of ourselves Joey Eggert is who we need to focus on first. To get to him I have no clue what must be done out here, so you'll be speaking to Angus Bartholomaus himself for getting to Joey. Don't worry I know that he will give you some great tips on how to fight him, just be careful I don't know for what he has planned for us.| Daniel saluted as he went to speak to Angus Bartholomaus.
Daniel saw Angus Bartholomaus already standing on the front on the street, well there was no time for him to waste so he hurried quickly.
|Don't worry my friend I know this place like the back of my hand, you see to get to Joey we have to do a few things to get their. There are mechanical gates blocking his tower at the end of the street, the only way to open it is to press a combination in the correct order. You'll find the combination button in each secret house you discover, first we need to find the map to tell us which place to go to press each switch. The best way to find this is to fight some monsters to find it, I happen to see a few of them coming from the corner just then. They are those nightly slashmen that have been causing trouble out here, they might have the map that can show us the write order we should go in. Yet we shouldn't get to happy Daniel I know their tricks, they might not have the full map that we need so be careful. If we do happen to get pieces of it we'll have to do some fighting to obtain the others, trust me we don't want to deal with all of that hassle. Well you better get started there is no time to waste now, don't fret I'll make sure no one comes to attack you from behind.| Daniel left the area to fight some slashmen.
Daniel walked down the street looking very cautious at the time, they weren't friendly when it come to their attacks they use. It was quite strange no one was around at the moment, then on of the slashmen almost attacked him from behind while he was walking. Luckily Chun-Hu manage to catch on to them before Daniel was hit, this wasn't going to be an easy battle since they were able to move that fast. After a good hour and a half Daniel did indeed find something on one of them, unfortunately it wasn't what they wanted to get right off the bat. It seems that Daniel has gotten only a piece of them map that they needed, he was hoping that he would get the full one yet it was better than nothing. Going back to Angus Bartholomaus he knew that this wasn't good news, so he looked at the little piece as a start to their work out here.
|Well I guess you didn't the full map I wish we didn't get a piece, but its better than nothing so let get started with the secret houses. The first place you should go is the third secret house down the road from me. Now when you go inside there is a switch on the end of the floor my friend, one you see it step on it to activate the lock to put it into the gate. Be careful there will be enemies there waiting for you once your inside, so make sure you have your friends with you at all times. I don't know what who can be hiding in them but they can be good for us, now when you hit the switch come back to me I tell you want to do next. You better get going there is not time to waste right now, don't worry I'll make sure nothing attack you from behind quickly.| Daniel left the area for the third tower.
This is where things are about to get tricky for him, there is an order to this place that can be tricky. Going to the third secret house this place looked very dark from the looks of it, yet there was no time for him to see how it looked from a distance. Going inside he saw that there were enemies waiting, although Daniel didn't want to meet with them it was unavoidable, so he was ready to fight them so he can touch the switch After a good hour and a half he finally hit the button to the gate, now with that done he went back to Angus to tell him about this.
|Good work you've hit the third button that was the first one, now we've got three more to go before we get to Joey. Now your going to have to fight some Sandling brutes in order to find the second piece of the map, they are bulky so save your attacks when you need them the most. If your lucky you might get the full piece of the map minus the first piece, but I don't expect that to happen one bit so bring me the second piece. Just be careful I don't know what waits for you in this street, yet I do know that Richard Hawkeye is in a secret area here waiting to strike at you. It's best for you to get going to the next area my friend, don't worry I'm make sure no one hurts you out here.| Daniel left the spot to find some Sandling brutes.
This was now getting really hard that the missions are getting longer, yet since he's been doing this he'll get used to it soon. Walking down the path he spotted a brute looking around, yet once he saw Daniel he called over his buddies over to come. This wasn't going to be a good fight for him since their so defensive, yet there was no time for him to think about things he needed to get some clues. After a good hour and a half he got the second piece of the map in his hand, however it wasn't the full map that he wanted from this. Going back to Angus he gave him the second piece, although it wasn't the full on they were making some progress.
|Although this isn't the full map were making some progress, now that we have the second piece we need to head to the second tower in this place. It says here to go the tower number one I bet that will be the second switch to the gate. I don't see any more monsters out here so there might be a piece inside that place, go look around to see if you can find this piece were after my friend. Just be careful for anything in that secret house when you go inside, you know full well that Joey's men wont take to kindly to you when you enter this tower. Once you get the map piece come back to me so we can get to the third switch, however let's focus on the second tower for now Daniel. You might want to get going my friend we don't have much time to work with, don't worry I'll make sure you don't get hurt from anyone trying to sneak up on you.| Daniel left the area to get to the second tower.
This wasn't going to be fun since those are strong henchmen, yet there was no time for him to complain he needed to get there now. Once he arrived he checked to see if there was a switch inside the place, going inside he nearly for cut from a flying dagger coming his way. Fortunately Chun-Hu was able to catch it before it hit Daniel since he was not quick enough to react, fighting the people in here wasn't going to be easy yet he needed to find the map. After a good hour and a quarter he finally defeated the people inside, now that he has this piece there was only two towers left to deal with. Daniel went back to Angus to give him the map, but not before he activated the switch on the floor next to him. Doing that first he quickly raced off into the street heading back to his location, Angus knew that they were about to get to Joey quickly.
|Great you've gotten the second building cleared and got the lock too, well now onward to the third place my friend which is the last one number four. You gave me the piece of them map although this isn't the easy way of getting to them, well after this tower there will be one more left to unlock. I know that Joey is scared out of his mine knowing you're doing this with my help, yet he wont be easy to beat since he like to be quick about his moves. However let's not stray away for the tower business were in my friend, we've got to get to Joey quickly I don't want Richard Hawkeye escaping justice the he so deserves. Well you better get a move one there is no time for us to wait and talk, I'll keep an look out for someone that tries to hit you from behind. I'm a retired Marine that knows all about pirates my friend, trust me they can do anything sneaky.| Leaving the area Daniel headed for the next to the last tower on his list.
There was something dark about this Joey person in Daniel's mind, sadly he couldn't picture it that this person was quite scary to deal with. Yet Daniel didn't have time to sit and think about how Joey was evil, he was already at the tower ready check on its surroundings inside. Going inside quickly and quietly he was able to get the enemies by surprise, unfortunately that doesn't mean that the battle is going to make it easier. After nearly two hours he finally beat the bunch who were protect this place, hitting the switch he got the piece of the map and headed back to Angus. Now with one tower left I think Daniel knew he was going to be told something different this time around, so he went off to Angus to get the last of the instructions.
|Great you hit the third switch to the gate Daniel, now there is one more tower for you to deal with now. Yes this time your friend Swiftwillow will accompany you to the large building that Joey's hiding in. Once you hit the switch go to Joey's place quickly, I'll tell your friend that your already fighting him. Once your done with that you'll meet up with your higher rank Sergeant Swiftwillow, although you'll be done here it will be a bit too late to deal with Richard Hawkeye then since he is a swashbuckler. He will rip you to shreds since he is able to move so fast in the night, yet let's not shy away from the mission we have right now. Well all I can tell you is that you better get to work my friend, I'll tell your friend about the work you've did here.| Daniel left the area to get ready for the fight with Joey.
He got to the last tower quickly so they wouldn't get spotted, reaching the tower they went inside again to give the people their a little surprise. Sadly they were ready for Daniel so this plan was a small failure, yet they had to unlock the gate to get to Joey and there wasn't any stopping them. After a good hour and a half they finally defeated them, hitting the switch the gate opened allowing them to get to Joey's hideout. Quickly going down the street they entered the gated area to find a large building near the port area, this was Joey's place so his brigade went inside his place quietly. Joey knew they were there so he was already prepared, Daniel didn't like this guy since he was indeed a swashbuckler and their attacks cant get serious. There was not time for him to run away now from this battle he was in, after two hours they finally defeated Joey Eggert with a few scratches. Going back to the spot Sergeant Swiftwillow took the place of Angus, he did help them out a lot and deserves to rest for a bit.
|Well done, Daniel! Now that this place is secure we can get to Richard Hawkeye, he probably still thinks Joey is still doing his work out here. He'll probably leave tomorrow night so we can surprise him by morning, I know you want to fight him but its too dangerous for you to go there now. Richard Hawkeye will crush you with his abilities and he wont even try that hard with you, so you better rest for tonight you've earned it from me. Once morning comes meet me at the docks so we can get started, I don't want to waste any time getting to Richard Hawkeye with the opportunities we have. Yet for the meantime you get some rest you've earn it Daniel...Dismissed!| Saluting Daniel left the area for the rest house.
Patrick closed the book on another chapter since he was in bed, what will happen to Daniel is yet to be seen from our eyes...perhaps waiting might be the best solution.
