Rabbit was, yet again, on another shopping trip into the city. On this occasion she was being dispatched to a store she did not often have the occasion to visit, to acquire some books.
Aster had books, but he had acquired much of his library prior to Rabbit's arrival at the estate, and in the intervening time, he had placed most of his orders through the mail. For whatever reason, however, on this occasion the books he wished to purchase necessitated a visit in person to a physical store. Which meant that Rabbit would be sent, just so soon as she could be spared again from her other errands and routines.
Stepping into the store, she said, "Excuse me." Approaching the shopkeeper, she presented a list scrawled down onto a scrap of parchment, which Aster had written for her. "I am looking for the following titles. Would you be able to assist me?"
The Way of the Blade x1 Documented Codes of Honour x1 A Short and Collective History of Documented Magic Use x1 Meditation Scroll x1 Only YOU Can Help Yourself! x1 Fine Compendium of Riddles x1 A Basic Lesson in How To Swim x1 Wilderness Basics x1
Osamuchi looked up from his desk, where he was organizing a variety of very small books into... some sort of order. Or perhaps he was repairing them? He was usually so meticulous that you could never really tell one way or the other. The sight of a TROD was always a momentarily alarming one, with their ominous appearances, but not an uncommon one. As a result, he leapt up almost immediately to assist the customer. "Hello, hello!" He greeted as he was handed the list. "Ah, yes! I can easily help you with this!" He said, handing the list back. There were a lot of books on it, yes, but his memory was sharp. He darted across the shelf, collecting book after book until he had a sturdy pile at the front desk. Skimming down the spines, he quietly counted under his breath. "That should be... 305 credits."
She had not meant to startle the man, and now Rabbit held up her hands in a placating gesture, readying herself to say something to communicate to him that her request was not so urgent that he need distress himself. But it was too late, or perhaps the man was too fast. It reminded Rabbit a little of her namesake, jumping creatures whose ears were always held high on alert.
He had the books assembled in short order, and then Rabbit was quoted a sum. In that sense, it was not much different from any of her other shopping trips. Rabbit nodded, though privately she thought that she was parting with quite a great deal of credits in a short period of time. But she was not spending nearly as much here as she might have at the Traveler's Emporium, and at any rate, the question of budgeting was not something that fell to her to resolve.
"Will this suffice?" she said, counting out a measure of credits, then handing them over to the shopkeeper.
Tell me, you who is mine, Tell me, you who is mine, What can I do if I don't have you?
Osamuchi took a moment to count up the credits before nodding with satisfaction. "Absolutely! Thank you so much for coming today. These books are excellent reads- I do so hope you enjoy them!" He said, sliding them across the counter to Aster and putting the credits away.
Morgan: No one knows yet. But I did want to make it clear that the jar itself isn't used for lotine husbandry in any way. c:

Twilight-Claw: I'm only assuming that it does something similar like a Fungal Beast that infects a Leaf-scatter. (the one with moss and I think it was a pink flower growing on the head.)

Silver: I'll try it soon and we'll find out!
Jun 5, 2020 4:16:11 GMT -6
Silver: I don't think anyone knows yet!
Jun 5, 2020 4:16:05 GMT -6
Darky: What did the 'infection' do again?
Jun 5, 2020 4:14:43 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Thanks for this information, its really useful to know! <3
Jun 5, 2020 4:14:30 GMT -6
Morgan: The lolatic doesn't disappear after one use, and can be reused on the same lotine when it is allowed to 'infect' a lotine- to my knowledge.
Jun 5, 2020 1:41:37 GMT -6
Morgan: The only effect/thing that the jar can be used for is to open up into a lolatic. The jar itself has no use in lotine breedings.
Jun 5, 2020 1:39:52 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: and the jar is then gone, if with the creature I am more guessing with this the creature doesn't disappear and it has unlimited use.
Jun 5, 2020 0:17:55 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Something else I am wondering about with the Lotine breeding is whether one would use the jar the Lolatic comes from in the breeding, or actually the creature itself. I'm assuming with it if its the jar, then it gives people only one shot in a breeding,

Twilight-Claw: Then using it in my rps is definitely just for the sake of rp's and not for anything additional.
Jun 5, 2020 0:12:17 GMT -6
Renathan: Fish are unlimited use once bought though. c:
Jun 4, 2020 22:31:17 GMT -6
Renathan: There's no additional effect for adding a fish to a magical berry in a lotine breeding. Magical Berry is kinda it's own thing. Adding a fish for roleplay value shouldn't hurt, but it has no effect when used on a magical berry lotine breeding.
Jun 4, 2020 22:27:14 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: be just for the sake of rp, and perhaps seeing if it might lent a bigger chance to multiple offspring with unique pattern. X3
Jun 4, 2020 15:31:01 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: I think your right on it being unlimited use yeah, although.. *cough* I only found out a couple hours after I started writing that I had yet to buy the fish in question so used the one you could get for free as a replacement, it still was meant to mostly
Jun 4, 2020 15:30:59 GMT -6
Riku: From what I loosely understand about the fish is that it isn't one-use, whereas the berry is. I feel like there wouldn't be any consequence of 'using' the fish...which I'd think just ooc wouldn't be counted for whatever rolls or whatever it is that it uses
Jun 3, 2020 14:14:30 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Thanks for that piece of info Ren! <3 | But would it be allowed for the flavor of the rp if the berry wasn't filling enough for the Lotine?
Jun 1, 2020 6:09:21 GMT -6
Renathan: There is no need to double up on a fish and a magical berry (doesn't change the effect of the berry at all) in a lotine breeding.
Jun 1, 2020 6:02:21 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Does anyone know if it is possible to combine both a magical berry and a fish in a Lotine breeding? Or is you can only choose one of them? (right now writing a Lotine breeding)

Twilight-Claw: I am still interested in trading it for a green drake.
