Hmm...

We took a one week break from adventuring (one week real life adventure/travel) and returned to find that a lot has changed in our personal world.  Our clan shrunk a little and only had 2 online members today while our Group channel only had 4 members online (usually in the double digits).  The biggest change however, was discovering that one of out prime motivations to go adventuring, the Conella family, has decided to formally quit adventuring in Bristia (if not altogether).  They will be greatly missed.

Demonic Sedecram Dungeon

This tunnel has a modern look to it.
This afternoon, we visited the Demonic Sedecram Dungeon (Bounty Hunter Mission) for the first time as we were able to do so with our new family member from yesterday, Brigitte.
She got knocked out for this photo.
As she was the only family member capable of entering this particular Bounty Hunter Mission, all she could help out with is shooting bullets.
Can't tell how much damage she was inflcting.
Still, it was good that we recruited a range attacker rather than a melee one due to situations like the above.

First Mercenary Recruited

The new member is on the right
Tonight, we recruited our first mercenary, another Brunie Etienne.  It was an expensive and interesting story.  Awhile ago, we were convinced to spend our resources to obtain a family member that can participate in the new areas.  A friend of ours agreed to act as a middleman to a trainer provided that we give them the paperwork (character card and mercenary warrant) along with the payment (800 million vis).  Deciding on the character required some thought as we were limited to stock characters and characters who initial cards are tradable (ie. does not require a mercenary warrant to leave the family).  We were tempted by the martial artists but the only options were Gertrude and Gracielo.  Technically, we could have chosen one of the orange outlined characters but we didn't want to have any characters leave the family.

So after awhile, we managed to get the Brunie card from the same supporting family with which get obtained the Catherine of STR card a long time ago.  As we didn't have 800 million vis, we were subsidized by the middleman by 120 million.  After a few days, the new Brunie was ready and we accepted her into the family.  One could almost say that she's been around.
