You walk for some time and come across a vast mountain range stretching to the horizon. Separating you from it is a river whose waters reflect the shining rays of the midday sun. To your right lies a bridge to the other side and, beyond it, a forest.

Before forging onwards, you take a seat on a conveniently placed arrangement of rocks by the riverbank, enjoying the cool afternoon breeze. Your legs swing with glee as you sway, ever so slightly, to and fro, moving in tandem with the serenade of the wind. Where the wind blows, you have not a clue; but perhaps your travels shall reveal it to you in due time! Or it won't. Either way, walking is nice.

Let's take a stroll. On a side note, I ended up staying up all night composing a theme for the quest (/qst/ doesn't allow webms with audio so this will have to do):
https://voca.ro/14UmJsT6JICS

It's still WIP, about halfway done. Anyway, I'll get the next post out before lunch and take a nap.

>>5965492
Forgot to mention that the theme is called "Winds of Gondola."

You get off your comfy chair of stone. Nature's gifts are to be enjoyed, but you know you shouldn't indulge in one thing for too long. The view here is certainly pleasing, but you got a world to see! And that means more walking!

You head in the direction of the bridge, but rather than crossing it, you decide to continue strolling along the riverbank. The breeze seems to pick up in that direction, and before you know it, you spot some flowers. They flutter through the air, as if prancing on the winds. You continue walking; you got a good feeling about what’s ahead.

As a flower lands on your forehead, you spot two items being swept along by the river currents. One seems to be a wooden box with gold trimmings while the other one appears to be something wrapped in leather and secured with chains. Judging from their speed, you can only recover one of them; that is, if you wish to.

Gotta act fast! You scurry along to the edge of the bank and stretch your legs out into the water. A moment later, the leatherbound item lands securely in the hold of your two feet. You plop the thing onto the soft grass and begin removing the chains securing it. They seem quite old and so, fortunately, come off quite easily; no need for any fine, delicate motor skills here. Afterwards, you slowly unravel the leather wrapped around the exterior, curious as to what it holds.

It's a... book? How strange, you think to yourself. What's a book doing flowing down a river? Luckily, the leather protected it from the water, if not you would have just ended up with a collection of soggy pages. On the cover, also leatherbound, it reads: "Reflections." You flip through the pages. It looks like a journal of some sort belonging to a person named—you flip to the first page—Marty. Could he have lost it? That wooden box might have also belonged to him, but it’s long gone now.

Good afternoon (or morning/evening) anons, it's a weekday, so I'll probably only have time to make one post today. I'll begin drawing in the evening after getting some work done. Locking in the vote first.

First of all, you can't just leave this book here, so you use the chains from the water (after drying them, of course) and secure the book to your left leg before continuing your journey along the riverbank. During your periodic rests, you sit down and read through Marty's journal in greater detail. The entries, though separated by spaces, don't have dates appended to them.

"...I took a walk in the woods again. It really calmed my nerves..."

"...Being here—what greater joy could there be? To bask in the sun at midday, amidst the chrysanthemums who never cease their swaying in the wind..."

"...Collect some berries for desert later..."

These are some of the passages that stick out to you. One particularly catches your interest:

"The light through the trees' crowns—I saw it once more today. A splendid thing. I wish I could stay in those moments forever, walk amidst the trees, shifting through sunlight and shade...I shall treasure this moments alone."

This Marty seems like a nice guy. Smart too. You'd get along with him, you think. This place in the woods might also be interesting to visit.

Not long after, a little hut comes into view on the other side of the bank. Right in front of it, on both sides of the river, you finally see where those flowers have been coming from. There's a whole field of them, bright and fragrant! You stand on a bridge conveniently located here. It's arched, so it gives you a little be of height to better take in the scenery. That house over there, though. Could it be Marty's?

You head up to the hut and stare at the door as you muster up the courage to knock. A while later, you raise your unchained leg and lightly tap it once. A resonant thud sounds out. It feels like wood, alright. You tap it again, but to your surprise, the door opens slightly. Guess it wasn't locked. You're not sure. Peaking, through the gap, the hut looks completely empty, and the sunlight flooding through the windows makes visible faint clouds of dust drifting through the air.

The hut is very minimalist. There's not much furniture around, just a desk, some drawers, a bookshelf with a ton of books on it, and a bed. You open a few of the drawers. Some of them contain writing materials: paper, pens, ink, and the like, while others are empty, cleared out. There is a fine layer of dust on everything as well. It must have been some time since anybody lived here. Scanning the bookshelf more thoroughly, you stumble across a note. It reads:

"Dear Marty,

Hope you're doing well, old friend. I've sent this short letter to inform you that all is well back at home. I know that you...

...Anyway, here's mother's amulet. She always wanted you to inherit it after she was gone.

Love,
..."

Everything except the start and end of the message is smudged and unreadable. However, with this, it's highly probable that this hut belongs (belonged?) to Marty. Speaking of which, where is he?

Outside, the sky takes on a mild orange hue. Dusk is arriving. You ponder what you should do next.

>Take the amulet along with you. From the looks of it, it doesn't seem like he's coming back here. You can pass it to him, along with the note, if you find him. He can't be that far from here, right?

Marty surely read the note and recieved the Amulet. If he wanted it, he would've brought it with him when he left. It's not ours to take. Leave both here if he should ever return.

Well, Marty's stuff belongs to Marty. You're not sure if you can even find him, so it's probably best to leave it here. Who knows? He might return someday. Anyhow, it's getting dark; before you know it, the sky is a deep shade of obsidian black. There are few stars on this lone night, but the hooked moon hangs high up among the clouds, its silver light piercing through the window. You take a deep breath, sit down, lean against the bed frame, and shut your eyes. (It's not nice to sleep on other people's bed without permission, after all). A few minutes later, you drift off into slumber.

The following morning, you wake up refreshed. You suppose that's the end of this Marty saga, for now, and promptly leave the hut. You don't want to overstay your "welcome." There's a path behind the building that leads in the direction of the mountains. You follow it and come upon a fork in the road. The right path leads into the forest, while the left one seems to lead to a small hill.
