Cannoneer Recruitment Quest
Location: Near Kyoto

1.Fight Alone?

Oh, you're finally here!
You're the warrior who's come to save me, right?
...
I've been waiting for so long...
I heard that you were a gruff warrior carrying a big cannon... You're not quite what I expected.
...
You... you don't know what I'm talking about, do you?
Oh, no... I don't know.
You're not who I was waiting for, after all.
...
No, I couldn't possibly ask for your help.
It's too dangerous.
~
Hm... All right. I will approve of you if you have at least 50 Fame. If you don't have that much, just go away.
...
I want to be alone...
Mission: Earn Fame Points (50/50)
Mm... You meet my minimum requirements.
But that's not enough.
Reward:
  • Experience: 30,000
  • Gold: 30,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

2.Necessity of Magic

The threat I face is not human. They are horrifying evil monsters and goblins.
They act and talk human...
They hypnotize others and make them into their followers.
Not even the strongest warriors cannot stand up to them.
Part of [Shogun Castle of Death] has already been taken by the goblins.
You might not believe it, but it's true...
They simply shrug off normal attacks made against them.
If you are just an ordinary warrior, you'd better move along.
This is a very dangerous place...
~
*Sigh*... If you insist on helping me, then I have one condition.
Prove to me that you're not just an ordinary passerby. Show me that you have the ability of magic.
Come back after using magic more than 50 times.
Mission: Use any magic (50/50)
Oh...
I suppose you're not ordinary, are you?
This is... nice.
Reward:
  • Experience: 40,000
  • Gold: 40,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

3.[Party] Army of Ghosts

Where should I start?
Shogun Oda Nobunaga is famous here in Kyoto for conquering Japan's many feudal lords.
...
But... In fact, behind Oda Nobunaga, there is a force that isn't human.
I'd heard this rumor before, but I never believed it...
Until I experienced it myself, that is.
...
There really is something inhuman in that place.
~
First, do me a favor.
If you go to the [Bloody Moat], you will see evil monsters that look like people hiding inside the [Shogun Castle of Death].
Get rid of their leaders, the [Goblin Generals].
Mission: Kill [Goblin General] x30
Oh my! I knew you were no ordinary person, but I didn't know you were this strong.
You really can help me.
Reward:
  • Experience: 50,000
  • Gold: 50,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

4.Where Was I Born?

I don't know whether you will believe it or not, but... I'm not actually from around here.
My name has the meaning of [Bamboo Princess]. My parents found me in a bamboo forest when I was young, so they gave me this name.
But... In fact, I came from the moon.
When the full moon comes next, I have to go back. I was worried about my parents being alone, so I'm staying here until then.
Even though they were two strangers who found me in a [bamboo] forest, they treated me like their cherished daughter.
Even though these are difficult times... I can't abandon my parents.
~
...
You were paying attention, of course. I don't need help from a person who doesn't listen to me.
What type of forest was I found in?
The type of tree behind my back is the answer.
Mission: Answer [Where Was I Born?] Question => Bamboo
You are right...
That's why my name is Bamboo Princess.
[Kaguyahime], that is.
Reward:
  • Experience: 30,000
  • Gold: 30,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

5.Training, training!

As you already know, the place I'm sending you is a difficult, dangerous place.
I know you're strong, but I still feel uneasy about it.
~
I can't shake this feeling... Please, take a seat while I pull myself together.
Mission: Sit (Shortcut X)
That's better. Sorry. I'm just worried about you, I guess.
Reward:
  • Experience: 30,000
  • Gold: 40,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

6.[Party] Ninja's Marble

I've heard that many of [Oda Nobugana]'s ninjas are in the [Shogun Castle of Death].
However, the inhuman creatures are controlling some of the ninjas.
The war may have left everything in case, but I still don't know how the dark families could reach their evil hands into humans.
It is really... the end of the world...
~
Those ninjas who are controlled by the inhuman beings carry [Ninja's Marbles] in them.
Bring as many [Ninja's Marbles] as you can after you kill [Ninja Drones], [Delusional Ninjas] and [Controlled Ninjas] in the [Garden of Withered Flowers].
They won't be easy to find, since the ninjas don't always carry them.
Mission: Ninja's Marble x40
Thank you.
Perhaps these will give me some idea of how to return everything to normal.
You did a good job.
Reward:
  • Experience: 50,000
  • Gold: 50,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

7.The Secret of Goblin Castle

Huh...?
I found something mixed in with the [Ninja's Marbles].
~
Oh, my...
This is a secret letter from the leader of the Imperial Investigation that reports directly to the emperor.
Read this.
Mission: Read [Secret Letter of Shogun Castle]
Status Report on Shogun CastleI've discovered something strange while spying on Oda Nobunaga, and everyone I've sent to investigate has started suffering from hallucinations.
The cause still eludes us, but one thing is certain: there is an inhuman presence in the Shogun Castle.

Our intelligence indicates that there is a giant goblin somewhere inside Black Keep.
We cannot be certain, but it looks as though this goblin has dominion over Oda Nobugana as well.
I am the last surviving member of the Imperial Investigation.
Whoever finds this letter, please deliver it to the Imperial Palace.
- Hattori, Leader of the Imperial Investigation -
Oh, oh... The imperial family sent a team here to investigate it, but they all died.
So that's what happened...
Reward:
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

8.Hurry, Tell Everyone

I see. So, Shogun Castle is under the goblins' complete control.
I didn't realize this before.
I've received many marriage proposals lately. I didn't feel like I could accept any, however, since I'm from the moon.
...
So, I gave all of my would-be suitors challenges. I said that if someone could overcome them, I would marry that person. No one could.
Until recently, that is.
The man who overcame my challenges looked human, but I sensed something evil in him.
~
Oh, I think we'd better tell people about the situation in the Shogun Castle of Death.
...What? Similar situations are happening not only in Japan but all over the world? In that case, promise me you'll share this information with the everyone you meet!
Input the number of the correct answer.
1: I'll do my best!
2: No. Knowledge is power, and I want all the power for myself!
Mission: Answer [Hurry, Tell Everyone] Question => 1
Spread like this, the information should reach the emperor. Good job.
Reward:
  • Experience: 40,000
  • Gold: 30,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

9.[Party] Strange Barbarian Gorillas

The situation is getting disturbing.
Anyway... I asked my suitors to bring me Buddha's stone begging bowl, a branch of jade adorned with jewels, the legendary robe of the Chinese fire-rate, and a jewel from a dragon's neck.
All of my requests were the stuff of legend, beyond the reach of most humans.
These items were unattainable, and yet he lay them all before me. He said they were sent by his master.
...
He referred to his master as the huge goblin Ohokina Obake, or [Obake] for short.
~
Come to think of it, the creatures of the castle are not only controlling human beings.
That wretched suitor was riding a huge monkey. I believe he called it a... [Barbarian Gorilla]
If we investigate the animals in the [Garden of Withered Flowers], we might find some clues.
Mission: Namman Banana x50
Oh, what's this?
A banana...? It looks strange.
...
If I eat this, will you get angry?
Reward:
  • Experience: 50,000
  • Gold: 50,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

10.Kaguyahime's Anger

Anyway... I couldn't marry a goblin, so I sent a letter to the imperial palace.
...
I got an answer after a long time had passed. They would send a strong warrior here to put an end to the chaos.
I couldn't remember his name, but... The letter said that he carried a big cannon.
It also said that anything hit by the cannon, human or monster, would be reduced to dust.
But... The first and second day passed, and the warrior never showed up. I've been waiting here for over two months.
...
You can imagine how confused I was.
~
You don't know how hard it's been. Why, I've resorted to giving silly names to everyone who walks by just to keep myself from going mad with boredom.
Why don't you give it a try? Rename one of your mercenaries. I'm sure they won't mind.
(You can rename a mercenary from their stat page in your inventory. You'll need a Blue Quill.)
Mission: Rename a Mercenary x1
Thanks, warrior.
I hope you aren't angry about my unreasonable requests. But, a woman sometimes asks for unreasonable requests.
Reward:
  • Experience: 30,000
  • Gold: 30,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

11.The Hidden Ruler of the Garden

Anyway, based on what you told me, I think the beasts you killed were not the same [Barbarian Gorilla] I saw.
The creature I saw was huge, and terrifying.
~
Mm... Huge creatures like that might be kept separately somewhere, like in a [Hidden Garden Room] in the [Garden of Withered Flowers].
It must be in a secret place. Kill it and then investigate it carefully.
Mission: Kill [Southern Gorilla] x1
Good job.
I knew I could rely on you.
Reward:
  • Experience: 50,000
  • Gold: 50,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

12.Another Beginning

Hmm... No clues here.
...
What can we do? They must be somewhere in the [Shogun Castle of Death].
We have to find another way.
~
I brought the [Crystal of Light] when I came down from the moon to here, but I lost it by mistake.
Will you find it with this map?
Mission: Crystal of Light x1
Was it hard to find?
Thank you.
Reward:
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

13.Black Keep Basement

I might be able to find something if I illuminate the inside of the [Shogun Castle of Death] with the [Crystal of Light] you brought me.
Wait here a little while.
...
...
...
Oh... I discovered the [Black Keep Basement] below the keep.
Right! It's in the [Black Keep Basement].
Go through the [Black Keep]. Go, go there!
~
You have to remember where you should go.
Where do you go after you go through [Black Keep]?
Mission: Answer [Black Keep Basement] Question => Black Keep Basement
Right. The [Black Keep Basement].
You have to go through it, then you can get to the huge goblin.
Reward:
  • Experience: 30,000
  • Gold: 30,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

14.[Party] Let's Catch Their Leader!

But you can't just go to the [Black Keep Basement].
There are magic bindings that will stop you if you don't assimilate with them.
~
In order to do it, you have to go to the [Hidden Keep], and then gather materials for a secret medicine to sneak in.
Gather [Monster Seeds] from the [Cursed Soldiers] and [Onimusha].
If we have them, the door to the [Black Keep Basement] will open.
Mission: Monster Seed x40
It won't be easy, but...
I won't forget your efforts.
Reward:
  • Experience: 50,000
  • Gold: 50,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

15.Clatter Clatter

We need just one more item.
It's take some work to get. If we get it, we'll be ready to go to the [Black Keep Basement].
~
It will require many materials and a heavy workload, but...
Will you make 10 [Hearts of Darkness]?
...
Please...

(Hint: My Info - Skills - Quest Crafting)
Mission: Craft [Heart of Darkness] x10
The end of this long journey is in sight.
You did a lot of work.
Reward:
  • Experience: 50,000
  • Gold: 50,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

16.Secret Vial of Darkness

Now everything is ready for us to reach the [Black Keep Basement].
...
Of course, it won't be easy.
~
Before you go in there, you have to use this.
We can't risk you falling under the goblins' control, can we?
Mission: Use Secret Vial of Darkness x1
Here... Everything is ready.
Reward:
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

17.[Party] The Goblin Princess

First, go into the [Hidden Keep], and then find the [Black Keep Basement].
There you will find [Onihime].
~
Kill [Onihime] in the [Black Keep Basement], and then bring me [Oni's Stone].
Please.
Mission: Oni's Stone x1
Oh... You survived!
It can't have been easy!
Reward:
  • Experience: 70,000
  • Gold: 50,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

18.Secret Vial of Oni

Even if the warrior with the big cannon had come here, I doubt he would've done as good a job as you.
...
If you hadn't passed by our town, how long would I have been in this despair?
~
First, use this secret medicine.
...
This is all I can do.
It's not much, but it will protect you from that evil monster's strange power.
Mission: Use Secret Vial of Oni x1
Why do I have this feeling a warrior like you doesn't actually need this medicine?
...
Haha, my mind must be playing tricks on me.
Reward:
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

19.Are You Ready?

Here, the time for battle is getting closer.
We have to prepare perfectly.
~
You must be ready to face a strong enemy.
Come back after you and your comrades fully recover your health.
Mission: Fully heal your characters.
Wow! I can always count on you!
We don't have to worry about goblins with this much strength on our side.
Reward:
  • Experience: 30,000
  • Gold: 30,000
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.

20.[Party] Beat Obake

The only thing left to deal with is [Obake].
You've worked hard.
~
Beat [Obake] on the [Roof of the Hidden Keep].
...
You have my trust.
Mission: Kill [Obake] x1
Warrior! The goblins' screams filled the whole town. You are great.
I can spend the time I have left caring for my foster parents. Thanks to you.
Oh, I mentioned earlier that we were expecting a warrior with a great cannon, right? He finally made it here.
He got angry when he heard you killed the goblins.

"Who killed the goblins that I was supposed to kill?"
He gave me a written challenge to pass on to you.
He told me that if you killed the goblins, then he needs to fight you, too. Haha!
If you use this, he will run to you, anywhere and anytime.
Anyway... You did a lot for us. We will never forget your efforts.
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.
Then... Goodbye.
Reward:
Think about your time with me when the moon is beautiful at night.
