Marine101 Arc 5: Ambersberg
June 2, 1800 Ambersberg
Episode 2: Getting into the heart of things! into Brückenstraße
Daniel was already up traveling in the street of Brückenstraße, this place was quite historical yet it did have its troubles to come with it. The pirates have ransacked this place heavily from a good distance, although this isn't the nicest thing to see he'll be able to handle whoever is doing this. After a few minutes of walking he found the mayor's friend standing quietly, Steven Emaurri looked up to find Daniel coming towards him softly. He breathed a sigh of relief knowing someone came to help out here, now they can get down to work with the task at hand.
|Oh, thank heavens! Someone came to help me out in this part of town, the pirates have brought those stubborn ravens again to do there dirty work now. But you better be careful about these dark birds of fright Daniel, these guys aren't your Wingdale ravens you fought in the other world. They are much harder to fight since they have a lot of vitality with them, however the ravens didn't come here alone to help the pirates I'm afraid. There is a new enemy here know as the Sandling Brutes who work out here with then too, so make sure you come prepared knowing this place very well. First off we've got to get some clue into who's controlling these guys, that is where your going to come into play Daniel boy. I know there are some Sandling Sword Slashers down the street not far from my location, go down there to see if you can find any clues on them. Once you do that come back to me I'll see what I can make out, maybe we can find this guy in this street quickly and quietly.| Daniel left to find some Sandling Sword Slashers.
This street was quite large from one persons perspective, Daniel isn't experience at all in Ambersberg from the looks of it. However that doesn't mean that Joseph Waterbane isn't experienced with this place, you see he was born here so he offered Daniel change in brigade order.
|Daniel allow me to be in the front in the brigade order, I was born here so I know this place like the back of my hands. Like always it may be a new change for you out in these parts, yet you don't have to be afraid of new things that come to you. Trust me this new enemy we have is nothing to play with right now, however we aren't that fast to every use the words giving up. Don't worry about the darkness that comes closer to use, with me here there is nothing you'll fear for some time.| Daniel placed Joseph Waterbane in the first column for the second in command.
Walking down the street it wasn't long before he found the Sword Slashers, they were stealing valuables from the historic housing here. Once they saw a marine they were furious at the sight of him, by the looks of these guys they were slashmen...Terrifying slashmen to be exact. These guys weren't like the warriors in Shailand from a long shot, they were much tougher and had more abilities as well. This wasn't going to be an easy battle for Daniel this time around, after an good hour he finally found something on one of them. It looked like a small piece of paper that had strange writing on it, however it was too small for even him to make out something of it. Going back to Steven Emaurri he wanted to know if he knew anything about this, unfortunately even he couldn't get anything it was too small.
|Oh seems to me like you've got a code to something Daniel, I'm afraid I cant make it out to you one bit. These guys might have more clues for you to find, yet they might have hidden some of the things there. Wait those numbers look familiar to me right now let me take one more look, there's secret house on far from here with these numbers on it. I bet there might be a good clue if we check that place out, you want be to be extremely careful when you do explore that place. I don't know what could be hiding there but it might be dangerous, these guys may plan to set a trap when you enter the secret house. So you might want to take your friends inside just in case, maybe we might find a clue or too inside. However we wont be able to do that if you just standing around, go an check the place don't worry I'll be right here when you come back.| Daniel left the area to find the secret house.
Daniel already had a bad feeling in his gut about going there, he thought there was going to be a surprise that he wont like one bit. Reaching the secret house he snuck inside to see if there was someone inside, sure enough he found some ravens inside waiting for him with their swords. They were guarding a clue in the corner of the room, whatever it was could be useful to them in his mission. Yet it seems like they wont be giving him this item easily by the looks, so he's going to have to fight them in order to get to the clue. After a good hour and a half he finally got the clue from then, he wasn't lying when he said that the ravens were tougher here than in Wingdale. After getting the clue he went back to Steven Emaurri to see what he knows, once he gave it to him he had a hunch that someone was hiding from their sights.
|Hmm if I was a gambler I'll bet that Jacob Baldovino is hiding from us, he's been doing so much trouble out here since the pirate came along. I wouldn't be surprised he got a job from the dark fellow in town, yet we don't know of his whereabouts are at the moment Daniel. This might be tricky but you might have to fight one more enemy, this time I saw some ravens near the south side of town causing trouble. Could you fight a few of them to see if you could get the clue to Baldovino, for once you do we'll be able to defeat him and clear the area. I can already see you had your encounter with some ravens, I told you they were quite fearsome indeed. Your going to have to be careful about thinking everything might be easy, trust me out here its not even the simple baddie can bring someone trouble if their guard is down. I know that will be another difficult task for a young marine, yet you wont be doing any good if you just stand there. Come on, Daniel! We're going to need those clues and so do you in that matter, go fight some ravens don't worry I'll be here waiting for you if I feel something is off.| Daniel went off to find some more ravens.
Walk for a few minutes he found the ravens doing some dirty work, they were quite intimidating from the looks of them. However he had to get a clue from them before they did something worse, so he took a deep breath and went to battle knowing he's about to get some good scratches. After another hour he finally got the clue they needed from them, heading back to Steven he knew they got the clue that would show them Baldovino in his hiding spot.
|Great work, buddy! You've found the hiding spot of Jacob Baldovino, he in a tower at the end of the street its not far from here. Be careful though he is a sneaky little rat, he'll do anything to defeat his opponents. In other words I'm saying this guy is a cheating coward that doesn't play fair, however you shouldn't have to much trouble with that guy. Just done underestimate him he can do things you marines cat do, while you are gone I'll be right here making sure nothing happens secretly. Once your done with him come back to me safely now, at least I know this place is well off from that dark fiend for good. Yet it wont get done if your thinking about how to take him down. you can do that when your in his tower fighting him heavily...Just be careful ok?| Daniel left the area to find Jacob Baldovino in his tower.
For a little place it sure has a lot of hiding spots for baddies, so Daniel kept a look out just to make sure no one ambushed him while walking. Once he reached his tower he went inside to find his men ready for him, Baldovino was standing with them ready to inflict pain on anyone who intruded on his plans. Daniel was also ready for him however he might destroy those plans of his, after a good hour and a half he finally defeated him in his tower. Going back to Steven he wanted to tell him the good news about Baldovino, breathing a sigh of relief the street was finally cleaned up. Even though Daniel cleaned this place doesn't mean he done just yet, for there are many streets in this place that has the same problems.
|Thanks a bunch for helping us out in this place Daniel, now that Baldovino is gone the street feel a little bit safer now. However I do have my feeling about this shadow five person out here, I know for a face that on of their henchmen might be behind all of this mess. Yet we need to focus on the other streets first my friend, you see you may have cleaned one place but there are many others. My friend Alexander Ekkrhardt is having a bit of trouble of his own now, he is in the street of Hahnenstraße that place has really gotten bad ever since that pirate came. Each street is worse than the last one so you want to be very cautious, however I'm not going to let you go there just yet Daniel. Its already night fall a swashbucklers paradise, going to fight now means you giving yourself a death sentence. Don't worry you can still get there tomorrow if you rest now, our street has a rest house you can use for tonight. So why don't you get yourself a good rest before heading out tomorrow, its in a way of saying thank you for helping me out here.| Daniel left to rest up and heal from his scratches.
Patrick closed the book on another chapter as he got ready for school, what will happen to Daniel is still hidden from our sights...perhaps waiting might be the best solution.
