QUEST: MYSTERY INCORPORATED
Its a perfectly normal day in Keterburg. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and people are going about their business with the usual hustle and bustle. The same can be said for you, right up until you hear it. Music. But music unlike anything you've heard inside FATE/Online thus far. In fact, it even sounds familiar, like something from the real world.
Almost without meaning to, you find yourself following that jaunty tune, curious. Who, or how, or why could such a song be playing here in Keterburg of all places? Was it another player perhaps? Had someone somehow opened a way out onto the wider internet?
Alas, it would be none of these, for as you would round a corner you would find yourself in an open square. From a posting board situated near the center you would hear the music playing, and would get your first glimpse of its source. A cartoonish, low graphical setting skull of some sort that seemed to be playing a trumpet of some sort. You're all set to to sigh at these antics and leave when you realize that for all the racket such a thing is making, nobody else seems to be paying attention to the skull.
You also quickly realize that you and a few other people can see it, and that all of you, down to the last one, are players. Not a single NPC seems to be paying attention to it. In fact, they might not even be able to see or hear it!
Thinking this warrants further investigation, you step forward, and as you do so the trumpet skull spins once before dooting its horn at you, sending forth a colorful wave of words that hang in the air.
”NICE JOB FINDING MY MYSTERY SKULL, LOSER. IF YOU CAN HANDLE SOME SPOOKY SKELETONS, THEN YOU'RE PROBABLY UP FOR THE BIG LEAGUES. MEET ME IN THE RUINS OF AVALON TONIGHT. AND BRING FRIENDS. WE'RE GOING GHOST HUNTING.”
At the bottom of the words is the name ”TSK”, and upon inspection, this creates a popup in your UI of a white haired player going by the same name, information for contacting her, and coordinates for your destination.
”P.S.” the message reads, as the skeleton doots out one more line of text. ”I'LL PAY YOU IN ROCK CANDY IF JUST DEALING WITH SOME SPOOKS ISN'T APPEALING ENOUGH. GOTTA FUCKING LOVE THE CAPATALIST HELLSCAPE.”
A player by the name of Tsk has asked for your assistance in trying to locate a ghost in the ruins of Avalon. Who knows if its possible, but hey, what have you got to lose?
