[ERROR] No.25040872 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

You are Maro of Jin, whispered as 'Maro of the Lightning".

It has been two days since you left your school in disguise as a mendicant monk. It has been one night since you have arrived at the house of white tiles in the city of Shen Jiao. It has been the better part of a day since you fought off thugs working for the crime boss Lao Len and in the spirit of the request your master Ren Zhao, it has been the better part of a day since you told one to deliver a message to Lao Len, that Maro of the Lightning will strike her organization down.

It has been 10 hours since you were told that Lao Len has your sister Pan, through the proxy of Flame-Lily, while investigating the corruption present in the house of White Tiles.

You have decided that you will cast down the crime syndicate of Lao Len and that you must rescue Pan at all costs, but you are at an impasse as to how to proceed. You know that Lao Len has likely informed her whole network of thugs and informants to keep an eye out for you with the description that was likely provided to her by the men you throttled in the market for harassing a farmer. You also know through inference that the master of the House of White Tiles (a man named Zhao Peng you have later learned) has enough ties to Lao Lens organization that you could probably find out the things you need to know from him.

It is the morning after the tea ceremony with the graceful Flame-Lily, a skilled conversationalist (though somewhat naive) and an artisan of tea-ceremonies - she did not lie when she said she was the houses best tea ceremony girl.

Your possessions currently include : An unnamed guinneapigbat with a piece of cloth around its stomach, 10 flame koku (that would conflict with your disguise as a monk if anyone were to see them), 15lbs of jin tea leaves (you gave 5lbs to Flame-Lily), a Khakkara staff that used to belong to your mentor, a teapot that used to belong to your mentor, a letter from home penned by your tutor Rokan with a sketch of your family also done by Rokan and a self sketch done by rokan.

>> No.25041078

Officially it's not a brothel, it's an 'entertainment house' much like geisha houses were, if you played your cards right you could get laid, but that's not an 'offered' service - offered services include tea ceremonies, singing, dancing, conversation, a place to stay the night and food.

The house policy about 'strange guests dressed as monks but obviously not' is 'keep our mouths shut'... but the house is corrupt, so you cant say what would happen. Flame-Lily seems to trust you though and would keep quiet if asked to do something like get one of your koku changed down into smaller amounts, or buy some different clothes for you.

>> No.25041085

Our cover is already kinda messed up in this town, what with us beating up some schmucks in the middle of town and giving our name, and I truly doubt that Flame-Lily is planning on going around spreading word about us.

We're already staying at a brothel and Flame-Lily isn't going to say anything, sleeping with her or not sleeping with her would not change any possible harm to our rep, so we may as well.

A koku is an amount equivalent to a persons worth of rice for a year, they're gold. If broken down into silver it would be enough for a moderate sized pouch.

Your families holdings in Jin were worth something like 250 000 koku - mostly because of the tea production. Rokan made sure you had a firm understanding of the value of your properties.

You ask the serving-man to have one of the houses newer girls brought to you. He nods quickly and informs you that he will bring you Snow-Lotus.

The Guinneapigbat you seemingly adopted a few days ago sniffs around the plate of food until it finds some fruit which it digs into with a gusto.

A few minutes pass and a blue eyed and dark skinned girl steps into the room.

"My name is Snow-Lotus, sir... Would you have me sing for you first, or would you have me dance... I am learning poetry and I could recite some of that too if it would please you?"

" White trees and mountains€”
Plum blossoms and winter snow
in a single gaze" Snow-Lotus finishes, and gives you a challenging glare.

You immediately recognize these words as belonging to the water tribe sage Tak Ool... they were reportedly his death poem and a lament about being unable to return home to die. You know that this poem would normally be considered in *extremely* poor taste, and that this girl would be risking a beating later if this was said in the presence of one of the other girls.

"I am not sure what would ever make you think to utter that in the presence of a guest, Snow-Lotus... but it so happens that I am incredibly fond of that poem"

You exchange a few more poems with her, and most of her material seems to be chosen with the intent of reminding you that she is a stranger here and longs for home. She's very good at her recitation... but her material seems to be what gets her in trouble.

You take two cups from the platter that was brought to you with breakfast, and with the boiled water brought in, you make and pour some tea with your personal stock of leaves, for both yourself and Snow-Lotus. Snow-Lotus is beside herself, you have seriously breached protocol by pouring for her.

"Drink, and tell me about your name... It does not sound like any water tribe name I have ever read about" you hand her a cup.

"... I hate this name" she says as she begins to tremble.

"Is it not your given name?"

You see tears forming in the corner of her eyes, it seems this subject is upsetting her.

"... How bad is it Lan Se?" You ask with concern.
"For the girls who fall in line, not so bad at all, for the girls who act out? He beats them mercilessly, there is a room deep in the complex where the sounds cannot get out. I have been fortunate in that most of what I do flies over the heads of its recipients" she states in a detached matter-of-fact manner.
"What is the worse that's happened?"
"One girl just a bit newer than me said something terribly wrong to a patron one night... Zhao Peng was furious, with her and dragged her off to that room, we never saw her again".

"Are you suggesting that he beat her to death?" Fire sparks in your eyes, but fortunately Lan Se fails to notice it.

"I think that may be what happened..." the guinneapigbat has crawled over to Lan se lap and is happily presenting its stomach to be rubbed, it seems to cheer her up a bit.

Gathering up your staff and the guinneapigbat you grab a single koku out of the pouch your master gave you. You decide to leave everything else at the inn temporarily.

As you exit the room you track down a serving man and ask him to bring flame-lily to you, he quickly complies.

"Master Maro... what can I do for you?"
"I would like you to come shopping with me" she beams with the biggest bubbly smile and begins clap happily almost immediately - it seems she's quick to leap to conclusions "I am a monk and I am not supposed to handle money or purchase things... but I can get around that technicality if I have someone else handle it for me" you say as you hand her a single koku... and she goes from exuberant happiness to wide-eyed astonishment.

"I didn't know you were so rich Master Maro... I think we could get me a portable tea set with just a portion of this... oh and so many fine clothes and tea's too!". She's almost spinning in circles as she imagines the things she can buy with your money.

"Excuse me. Flame-lily, you're supposed to be helping *me* shop, not the other way around" she deflates somewhat visibly as you say this.

"... Oh. Right... I guess we need to go to the moneychangers first."

She quickly collects her things and you set off to the nearest moneychanger without effort... It's clear flame-lily is no expert with money matters, but you don't get ripped off too badly with the exchange. You now have a pouch of 250 silver bu.

You leap into a stance you've practiced many years, with a quick movement that interposes your hand with the bolt of fire you draw in its heat and then negate it, exhaling steam from your nostrils.

You cant say that you didn't expect lao len to send retribution, you just didn't think it would be quite this fast. You see the man who shot the bolt of fire at you, and two others in similar clothes beside him. People are clearing out of the streets quickly, and flame-lily has scurried off to the side in apparent shock at what you did.

One of the first things you were taught at the temple of centered flame was how your bending can heat and cool metal... in an extrapolation of the principle, you somehow know that your lightning can be used on metal.

Taking the same stance and slow practiced movements you made when you traded lightning with the sky, you gather energy with flowing movement.

"What the hell do you think you're doing firebender?"

You ignore the earthbender, you've gathered enough energy, you touch your left and right hands together and step forward with your right leg, your right arm thrusts forward and there is nothing but blinding white lightning.

The earthbender tries to shield himself, but he's still holding onto the staff, and you were aiming at the staff not him. Lightning travels up his arm and through his whole body, he drops smoking, you don't think he's alive anymore.

You step forward and retrieve your staff. What was once a street of people selling food is completely vacated, and honestly it looks like a warzone, you extinguish the remaining fires, drawing their heat in and exhaling steam and smoke out.

The guinneapigbat returns to your shoulder and flame-lily runs up and asks "What the hell was that, I mean i didn't even know you were a firebender... but that was something else".

Before you can answer a woman wielding a guan-dao walks around the corner and scowls at you, it seems she's upset over something, but it doesn't look she'll attack.

Honestly, the way I see it is that water and firebenders are situationally powerful (full moon for water, celestial movements for fire), whereas earth and airbenders are generally pretty consistent in their power.

I second this for next thread.

Firebenders have the additional strength of being an insubstantial bender. They don't need a source.

Airbender- Insubstantial - consistent power
Earthbender- Substantial - consistent power
Waterbender- Substantial -Fluctuating power
Firebender- Insubstantial - Fluctuating Power

Interesting power, eh?

Yes. Lightning is just higher Firebending.
