This signiture is hidden because it is a spy.
Evenos would rather eat his own arm than ever so much as taste another unicorn burger from Sir Spamalot's.
How close to death are you? Can you justify browsing around in the shops in a town that is about to be destroyed and is full of people who want to murder you?
NOPE KEEP GOING WEST
> Buy all the things. Quickly.
keto: Be the doomsayer. It is your path as the boundless noise, though you turned out to be bound.
Sound guy: Enter the store
Assuming a classic rpg equipment/economic system is in place, you have enough cash for very few items. I would recomend only buying a potion if you don't have to skip out on another peice of equipment to get it. Over time, a slight stat boost is worth far more then the price you paid for it. On that note(pun), it's time to compair your current equipment to any you can afford. Sound armor sounds awsome. Also, leave out the back door if you can.
Time beast: Follow the sound guy.
I doubt its a good time to stop for anything other than a warning to the other townsfolk. Otherwise, keep moving.
> Have keto warn them, everyone else just continues onwards. 'e can catch up with flying.
Canvas size upgrade earned!
If... town is about to be destroyed anyways, couldn't you just... sort of...
Run in... and...
You grab an armful of useful-looking stuff while the guy behind the counter is too stunned to react and quickly abscond. Keto scoops up some stuff in its wing and follows you. Tobias has no limbs so it just continues to ride on Keto.
You run, looking completely ridiculous, and Tobias watches behind you to make sure you aren't being followed. Running like this is a bit taxing on you, but you can still manage to keep it up for a bit without any serious negative side-effects.
You keep running all the way out of town...
...and onto the plains. You can really tell the Sound god has a lot of influence here. The grass is flipping blue. Nothing like the dainty white city grass, the kind that starts turning funny colors if you don't water it every hour. No, this is legitimate wild grass.
You can see the mountains in the distance. It's a bit of a ways away.
You could keep pressing on towards the mountains, or you could take a quick break to rest and go through the stuff you stole got.
No map because nobody is familiar with the area.
> Move out farther from town and then rest/inspect loot.
> Maybe you can do healing spells or something? Maybe there's meds in that pile of stolen goods? You are probably far away enough from town to try and get your health up. After all you don't know what lies ahead. Keto can fly up and get an idea of the layout of the land.
I think there is a good chance that the store owner was the only person who lived. He will be here in approxamatly 5 pannels if he is going to come by this specific spot at all. You are in the planes and he will see you from a large distance. Be ready to hand him all of his stuff and attempt to get him to pay you for you moving services. Don't forget your emergency fees.
In the mean time, discover that most of the devices have guard spells and that the really good items have sperits that refuse to recognise you as their master because of your crimes and current weakness.
Drink a health potion.

I immediately noticed that 95% of everyone on the opposite side of every argument were complete idiots. After a while, however, I started to realise that 90% of everyone on my side of every argument were also idiots. Then I realised that statistically, that meant there is a 90% chance that I am an idiot. And now I don't post on the Bioware forums anymore.
I have a name, you know. Are you just refusing to use it
because you're bitter about not getting to name me?
You're lucky I don't get offended easily.
Anyways, regardless of how bothered you may be by the people on the other side of the fourth wall, you have an inventory to sort through.
You have obtained two more staffs, of about the same quality and make as your current one. Nothing too special, but if you current staff breaks you'll have spares. You can also use the tuning forks on them as additional magic amplifiers for other purposes.
You also have obtained six health potions. Five of them are the standard Energy and Sound magic mix, Energy for strength and Sound for stability, labelled in purple and blue for ease of recognition. The top twists on and off, and the containers are airtight and reusable.
One of them, however, is in a gray container. You are not sure who would make a gray health potion container, and you are not sure what this means for the substance inside. It's probably normal, though. After all, it was out on the shelf.
Oh, and you really hit the jackpot here! Keto had scooped up a wingful of scrolls! One of each element, even!
Use a potion or scroll, or keep your supplies for later?
Evenos> Use a potion, and then continue walking away from the city with your renewed energy. If an hour passes and you still haven't found anyone for Tobias to bond with, bond with him yourself.
Sound guy: That store owner still has a high chance of finding you. There have only been three panelst so far. My estimation was five and the store keeper shouldn't be much farther behind then that, but it could be longer. Use an energy potion. You aren't exactly out of control with power yet so you don't need more stability. Save the sound potions for the time beast. In one hour and 27 minutes, there isn't the slightest chance you will have reached the mountains by normal means. Continue to walk in hope.
Btw, sound guy, I don't even know or care what random set of letters any of your fake names are. It's not important. By the time the story is over, I will know your name and worship your most likely epic feet anyway. If I wanted, I would use my masterful "not actually saying anyone’s names" skill that I have been using all my life and you would be none the wiser. Basically, it’s not a dig at you, don’t worry.
Time guy: If nothing is what has happened to you by 5 minutes before you die, screech like you are a 5 year old human and a dog just took your favorite stuffed teddy bear and ran away. If you are asked to stop, stop. Then start again if there is awkward silence.
keto: Just keep walking. Say nothing unless you know for a fact that you are right. Don't make eye contact. The sound god's boy might be dangerous.
Group: Enjoy the fireworks, or complete lack of light, whatever happens, behind you.

> Totally drink up that potion until your HP is maxed out or something.
Wow, how have I let this adventure escape me for this long.
Crazy plan incoming!
>Ask Tobias if he can get around the "need to bond within 1 hour and 27 minutes" can be worked around by his time travel ability. Probably not, I know, but it doesn't hurt to ask. I forget what happens if he doesn't before that time. However, it's technically already happened, so there's not too much to worry about.
>Go back and make sure the shopkeeper is chasing after you with guards. If you can get them to chase you out of the town, you might just save their lives. Then again, you might not have the stamina for that... On the other hand, you don't have to do it *today* if Tobias sticks with you.
>Ask Tobias for a vision of the future if you go to west to the inhabited place if you're really unsure, but be warned. The very act of looking into the future could change it--if you have a vision of them being hostile, they may only be hostile because you had the vision of them being hostile in the first place.
Do the bondy thing with Tobias; having a Time spellbeast around should prove useful.
Sounds reasonable enough. Since the potion in the weird gray container is on top in its inventory stack slot, you decide to just drink it so you don't have to take out all the potions.
Any scientist would tell you that if there is even a tiny chance that a chemical is mislabeled or unknown, you should not even THINK about drinking it.
You are not a scientist, nor have you ever spoken with one on lab safety, so you imbibe like there's no tomorrow.
The potion is not indigo like it is supposed to be. It is ridiculously bright green. This does not correspond to ANY of the magic elements!
But it tastes delicious and you can already feel strength flowing back into you so you don't worry about it.
You start walking. You guess you could bond with Tobias if you don't meet anyone else willing to... you are really apprehensive about Timebeasts. But he seems like a pretty chill guy.
If I can figure out how, the next update will be an [S] page.
If I can't, it will have buttloads of GIF animations.
Here's a game for you all- rather than suggestions for next time,
if anyone can successfully guess the surprise and/or
how/why the city is going to be destroyed,
free art request for any and all I deem close enough.
Yes, I can actually draw, and not just like this.
Stop looking at me like that.
