Sikaah's Adventure, Part 6!
      by Seppel

-> Sikaah, return to the jungle.

You make a hasty and dramatic sandy dustbillow trail back to the jungle with the Silent Protagonist in tow. It isn't long after entering the jungle that you almost trip over a sugar-glider on the ground! Shi blushes as you spy her wardrobe malfunction, which may or may not be relevant to the narrative at this moment. It certainly isn't, but if it were, you would have to say that it was due to the earthquake, and that it simply took hir three hours to get up. Maybe the jungle floor is comfy, didn't you think of that? Also, hir head is up there, thank you very much.

After a quick adjustment of clothing and a series of greetings, you learn that hir name is Kasim, and shi was away at the time of the rising. Shi's also heard of you. Everyone's heard of you. You'd better start getting used to it. It's really quite embarrassing that you haven't already.

"So, what exactly do you know?"

"Not much, I'm afraid. I felt the vibrations, and I thought I should go investigate, but I was preoccupied with a quest involving a horse demon rising from the swamp. Regardless, I've spent many days adventuring in this area, and I can tell you that I know of only one tribe that could have done this. Lots of foxes, lots of tentacles, lots of whispers. They distract you, and then they strike. You're better off staying away from them, that Cult of Kuushik."

"The Cult of Kuushik? I spent most of my day in this jungle, and I've never heard of them."

"I live in Panaway, and you've never heard of me, isn't that right?"

"Right... Panaway, about that..."

"What! Did something happen?"

You're not quite sure how to broach the subject. You sigh.

"Panaway didn't quite fully survive. Earth falling from the sky, buildings smashed. We can't just let more destruction happen. Do you think you could join us? Getting to the island is no problem; it's stopping them that I need assistance with."

"Ugh. I want to go check on Panaway, but I agree that the best way we can help is by stopping Kuushik. What's the plan? I've got all my gear on me already! Even if I'm just a distraction, I'll help in any way I can."

You recruited Kasim!

What now?

-> Continue through the jungle to gather information.

-> Take to the sky to confront the Kuushik.

Wait, what happened to Panaway and how did we find out about this?

I could honestly go either way on this one. Kasim is an extremely valuable asset to any group, at least in my experience.

I will vote "Continue through the jungle" since I am quite interested in what we can find next. And yeah, maybe it's wise to heed Kasim's advice to steer away from them until we can learn more, regardless.
