The Scribe

The Scribe

This one is as I once was… Insatiable for knowledge, and blind to its perils.

-Story-

Sleepless night after sleepless night, the Scribe is haunted by visions of the powers beyond our world. The light and dark alike call to her, and she in turn demands knowledge of them. No tonic, tincture, pill, nor formula can put her mind at ease, and with little other recourse, she seeks out the hamlet, desperate for any cure to her unusual ailment, and for what fantastic knowledge may be obtained in the process.

-Appearance-

The Scribe is of mixed descent, namely Chinese and British. She has an under-pronounced British riding coat, and Cheongsam qipao. Her hair is long and wavy, but not well-kept. Her eyes have dark rings beneath them from her ongoing sleeplessness. Using the Occultist’s animation framework (temporary), her left hand holds a book and her right holds a scroll.

Affliction: A close-up of her bloodshot eye fills the screen. Her eyelashes and the edges of her irises have the stress shape, while her pupil glows bright red.

-Dialogue-

–Battle–

Landing a Crit

  • The might of a focused mind.

  • Easier than poetry.

  • Let us be done here! I have books to read.

  • Mind over matter!

  • Darkness and light; at my fingertips!

  • A lesson learned the hard way.

Death’s Door

  • Do not cast me to that abyss…

–Consumed–

Becoming Consumed

  • Lm’n Ftagh! Ygrlol, kul’n fltn’att!

  • I will yet escape this ceaseless torment!

  • The destruction of my mind is unsealed!

  • Suffer the power of my knowledge!

  • I see through this false reality!

Special Infliction Counter

  • We enter the darkness together!

  • I will not fall alone!

  • You will die here, no matter the cost!

Attempt Companion Horror Cure

  • Try these pills. They tend to work for me.

  • Stuff your fears in your pockets for now!

  • Wipe those tears away. We have work to do!

Gaining Riposte and Mark

  • You cannot stand against its influence!

  • I accept your challenge. Ignorant wretch.

  • I shall conquer the unenlightened!

Party Member Attack Misses

  • They cannot be stopped this way.

  • Must you prolong this struggle?

  • You delay our progression!

Camping Stress

  • Fltag’n Kful’brtygurm, be unto us. Gyfulkrhn’v’ynhm…

  • Holy or wicked, I can feel their horrible power.

  • Do not ignore those whispers. They are real.

Party Member Getting Hit

  • You accelerate their plan!

  • Do not fulfill their deranged prophecies!

  • Your flesh impedes my will!

Refusing to use be Target of Camping Skills

  • What use is it? Our foe transcends our bodies.

  • K’taghn. Grylf’kt’nhaugn… Not again… Krhn Rhyltinagg…

  • Please, I must focus! Lest the Thing escape my mind…

–Final Boss–

  • My visions… Fulfilled.

–Glimpses of Oblivion Announcement–

  • I am… Drowsy…

  • I… I cannot stay awake much longer…

  • The fatigue is becoming too much…

–Glimpses of Oblivion Start–

  • A battle I have faced countless times.

  • These terrors I have come to know well.

  • I know this dream. I will surpass it again.

Town Events

-Scholar in the Streets-

(Scribe can now be found in the Stage Coach)

Those seeing knowledge will find it here in profusion. At a cost equally unfathomable.

“To those privy to greater insights of the world, a fair, wizened, young woman is offering great rewards of all sorts, from material to scholarly.”

-Meeting of the Minds-

(2 Scribes available for recruitment)

This abhorrent cesspit of an estate retains a sinister allure to it… For those craven to the welcoming embrace of madness.

“The growing stature of the hamlet has begun to attract those inclined to plunder the secrets of the ruins. Those with rare or valuable information are being promised fair payment!”

-Library Closure-

(Idle Scribes gain 1 Resolve Level)

An optimistic notion that there are worthwhile findings of these dated and dusty tomes. My scouring had been lamentably fruitless, as will theirs.

“The hamlet’s library is temporarily closed, as the sisters of study have blockaded themselves within, demanding utter privacy and silence during the course of their research. Denizens are advised to remain soft-spoken near the library’s windows.”

-Class Specific Encounters-

–Glimpses of Oblivion–

Unique Night Terror Event

The terrible nightmares of the Scribe will manifest themselves at night, lashing out at her mind. Countless bouts with these delusions have hardened her against them, but the same cannot be said for her allies. There are no rewards other than a quest-long buff for a successful fight.

Each encounter will stun (500% chance), stealth (2 rds), apply horror (10 for 5 rds, or until encounter ends), and apply -20 SPD (first turn only) to all non-Scribes on the first turn. All Scribes will gain +40% PROT, +20% DMG, and gain -25% Stress for the duration of the battle.

The backdrop will be a fusion of the Shambler fight and the Flesh Dungeon.

Defeating the nightmares will remove all horror and recover 25 Stress for the party. They will also gain -20% Stress and +10% MAX HP for the rest of the quest.

Ancestor Remarks:

At last, one who turns to face the truth.

Prophetic visions become tangible!

Ethereal nightmares, manifested!

Sanity ebbs. The facade of reality falters.

–Glimpse Enemies–

Various Eldritch-esque enemies will hold places in these scenarios. All enemies here will be of the “Insomnium” type, and will be Shambler-like reskins of existing animation sets. This can include a reskinned Drowned Crew, reskinned Shrieker, reskinned Siren, reskinned Collector, reskinned Gargoyles, reskinned Fungal Zombies, reskinned Supplicants, and potentially more.
