The party accepts a job from the guild with a request from a young chef named Ellis. She gives them a brief introduction and a request to hunt Golden Geezers, an important ingredient she apparently doesn't have the time to grab herself. The party, having never heard of these peculiar birds before, venture off to complete a suddenly odd contract..

|Sara||We're running out of travel funds, so I went and got this job assignment from the guild...|
|Lippy|| Ah, it's for a restaurant! Perhaps they're in need of cooks? |
And if so... I do believe I'm more than qualified! I would be happy to be of service.
|Sara||I'm guessing that isn't the job.|
|？？？||Excuse me? Are you the adventurers that the guild sent over?|
|Sara||Yep! That's us.|
|？？？||Aha! I thought so! It just hit me like the piquancy of Minstel-grown black peppercorns!|
|Lippy||I take it, then, that you are our client for this job?|
|Ellis||Ah, right! I should've introduced myself. I'm Ellis! A pleasure.|
|Sara||Hi, my name is Sara. It's nice to meet you.|
|Ellis|| I guess I should explain a little about the job. |
I need you to acquire a certain ingredient for me.
I had intended to get it myself, but there are too many other ones I need, so I called for help.
|Lippy||I see. What sort of ingredient did you have in mind?|
|Ellis||Yes. Golden Geezers, specifically.|
|Lippy||Golden... Geezers...? What are you talking about?|
|Ellis|| It's just a type of geezer! They're at the lake to the East. |
Brutal and short tempered. Oh, and with a mouthful of sharp teeth. You have to be cautious of their jaws.
|Sara||Umm... can you be more specific? Without more details, we might bring back the wrong kind...|
|Ellis|| Uh, sure. They've got shining golden scales and whiskers that are as long as whips! |
To be honest, I wanted to go catch them myself, but they're pretty dangerous. I can't afford to get hurt!
And now I have to get back to work! Sorry! And good luck!
|Sara||Wait! Hold on a minute! Aw, dang it. She's gone. What are we gonna do?|
|Lippy||We have already accepted the contract through the guild, so we have no choice but to fulfill it.|
|Sara||Yeah, I guess you're right. Come on, (user). Let's head East to that lake!|
|Sara||Oh... so a geezer's just a type of fish?|
|Lippy||Whoever named them thusly certainly has an unusual sense of humor.|
|Sara||I guess those whiskers do make'em look kinda like old men.|
|Lippy|| Good gracious. The imagination of you humans never ceases to amaze me. Ah, incidentally... |
There seems to be some unusual power dropped by that monster we fought.
I have analyzed it with my smartphon, and it appears that it could be upgraded to create a powerful weapon!
|Sara||Really? That's quite a material!|
|Lippy|| The geezer appears to be just one of a number of unusual monsters here. |
This material may be the result of some mutation that has occurred within this most peculiar food chain.
|Sara||If it looks like we can make something out of it, we should give it a try! But first, we need to get back to Ellis.|
|Ellis||You caught one! That's fantastic!|
|Sara||Happy to be of service.|
|Ellis||This is just perfect! I might actually be able to win the cooking tournament now!|
|Ellis||Yeah, they hold one twice a year in this town.|
|Sara||Really! That's pretty neat.|
|Ellis|| Every year it ends in a tie between me and the same guy. |
But this time, I'll finally be able to send him packing. And it's all thanks to you!
|Sara||Wow. Well, I wish you luck!|
|Ellis||You know, you should come! You can try my masterful menu!|
|Sara||Your masterful menu?|
|Ellis|| That's right. All my most innovative and of experience as a chef! |
Customers who have eaten it have been so invigorated by its deliciousness that they've fought off monsters bare-handed.
|Sara||What?! They fought off monsters? Bare-handed? Because of its flavor? I don't even...|
|Lippy|| I had no idea that this world was capable of such potent cuisine! I have so much to learn! |
Hmm? Why are you shaking your head like that, Great Savior...?
|Sara||Well, uh... I guess we'll be there.|
|Ellis||You won't regret it!|
|Lippy||We've managed to save a considerable amount of money in the week since we completed that task for Ellis.|
|Sara||Yeah! Once this last job is done, It'll be enough to hold us for a while.|
|Lippy||But first we'll need to locate the client for the job.|
|？？？||Are you guys from the guild?|
|Lippy||We are indeed. And who might you be?|
|Hodd||My name's Hodd. I'm the one who sent for you.|
|Sara||It's nice to meet you, Hodd. How can we be of service?|
|Hodd|| Let's discuss it in the restaurant. |
Sorry, but part-timers like me aren't allowed into the kitchen before business hours.
So all I can bring you is water.
|Sara||Thank you very much.|
|Hodd||Well, let me get straight to the point. I'd like you to acquire a certain ingredient for me.|
|Lippy||Dear me, Lady Sara. I have a bad feeling about this.|
|Sara||*Sigh* So what is it you're after?|
|Hodd||I want a morron. A big fat morron, ideally.|
|Lippy||I gather this morron is another one of this region's fancifully named fauna? You chefs certainly seem fond of such creatures.|
|Sara||I'm sorry, can you be more specific about what these "morrons" looks like?|
|Hodd|| You've never heard of morrons? Well, they live in the woods South of here. |
They love carrots, and have deer-like antlers on their heads. Their wings are silver. Oh! And they're nocturnal.
|Lippy||I see. Do they have any other distinguishing characteristics?|
|Hodd||Well, they eat meat, and particularly enjoy human eyeballs. I hear there are a lot of one-eyed morron hunters around.|
|Hodd||If you open up their stomachs after you kill them, sometime you can find—|
|Sara||Enough! That's enough!|
|Hodd||Huh? Oh, okay. So... Good luck, I guess!|
|Sara||Sorry. I couldn't bear to hear another word of that.|
|Lippy||These morrons sound like truly ferocious creatures! Let us proceed to these woods with the utmost caution.|
|Sara||Yeah. Keep an eye out, (user). Oh no... Did I really just say that...?!|
|Lippy||We finally got one!|
|Sara||It may be big and fat by morron standards, but I'm surprised at how small these creatures are.|
|Lippy|| Indeed. I was expecting something much worse from the description. |
Incidentally, the tree in which the morrons lived seemed permeated with powerful magic.
I analyzed the materials from it with my smartphone, and it appears they could be upgraded to create potent weapons!
|Sara||Really? Then we should continue investigating the trees and terrain in this region!|
|Lippy|| I suspect there are more trees like that one within these woods. |
If the opportunity presents itself, we should collect more materials and attempt some weapon creation afterwards.
|Sara||Sounds good to me. But for now, let's get this morron back to Hodd, (user)!|
|Hodd||Wow, that was quick work. Thanks!|
|Lippy||You can confirm that this is a morron?|
|Hodd||Oh yeah. That's a big fat morron, just like I wanted! This'll win me the cooking tournament for sure.|
|Sara||The cooking tournament? You mean...|
|Hodd||I'm tired of that sassy little chef getting in my way every time! This tournament's gonna be my time to shine.|
|Lippy||Ah. I take it you're a regular at these cooking tournaments, then?|
|Hodd||What? You didn't know? I was wondering why you didn't seem more excited. You've never tasted my cooking, have you?|
|Sara||I'm afraid not.|
|Hodd|| That explains it, then. You need to come to the tournament! |
Every moment I've suffered over the last several years—it's all led up to the ultimate menu I've prepared.
|Lippy||An ultimate menu, you say?|
|Hodd|| The combination of flawless ingredients chosen at their peak of flavor, and my perfectly trained culinary skills... |
...could only result in a meal of ultimate quality!
It will be so delicious that all who taste it will believe they've visited the great beyond! You won't regret it!
|Lippy||Heaven, you say? My curiosity is piqued. I was not aware that fine cooking could open the gates to paradise!|
|Sara|| Wow, that gave me chills. But... which of the two possible "great beyonds" are we talking about here? |
You have a bad feeling about this too, (user)? Maybe we should decline Hodd's offer...
|Hodd||Hmm? What?! You speak of declining?! Will you be too busy to attend? In that case, I'll cook for you now!|
|Sara||Huh? N-No! That won't be necessary!|
|Hodd||But I must show you my gratitude! I don't have time to make a full meal, but I could at least make an appetizer.|
|Sara||No, it's okay! Really! We'll come to the tournament!|
|Hodd||Oh? Well you've made the right choice! It will be a meal to remember!|
|Sara||Oof... I tried, but... he wore me down. Sorry, (user).|
|Host|| At long last, the cooking tournament has begun! |
The fated battle is upon us! This tournament's longest running struggle!
Will this be the day one of these culinary warriors emerges triumphant?
It's Masterful Ellis vs. Ultimate Hodd!
|Sara||Looks like Ellis and Hodd are already hard at work.|
|Lippy||An impressive show of vigor! But... What are those ingredients they're using?|
|Ellis||This is gonna be the day! I'm not tying with you again.|
|Hodd|| You're right about that part! You'll have to find yourself a new nemesis, because I'm finishing strong! |
The meat in my morron soup is perfectly stewed! Now I add the mandrake root!
And then a dash of powdered mithril! I've got gunpowder in my spice mix, and magic heating runes on my pot!
|Sara||Wait, what? Does that sound odd to anyone else?|
|Ellis|| So what? My unbeatable masterful menu is just about to receive its kick! |
I'm frying up a mix of finely chopped geezer and rice.
Next comes my secret spices from the far, far, far East—meteor powder and ouroboros pepper!
|Hodd||You're brassy, but you got talent. That scream speaks to the freshness of your ingredients, at least.|
|Ellis||I can tell you're a man who appreciates freshness. I can feel the liveliness of yours coming right out of your pot!|
|Ellis&Hodd||But I'm the one who's gonna win!|
|Sara||What is going on here? What is THAT?!|
|Lippy|| Dear me! |
According to my smartphon, their recipes are replicating a monster summoning process used by a famous sorcerer!
|Sara||Wait, WHAT? We've gotta stop them!|
|？？？|| Over there, look out! |
I'll have to use an arcane arte! Thunder Sword!
|Sara||All of a sudden, there's monsters everywhere! Yikes... Thank you!|
|？？？|| I was invited here to act as a judge! How did I end up fighting monsters?! |
Well, whatever. Are you guys okay?
|Sara||We're fine. But there's more monsters to deal with!|
|？？？||I'll get rid of them somehow. You guys flee to safety.|
|Sara||No, we're joining this fight. Come on, (user)!|
|？？？||Wow, you guys are great fighters! I'm kinda shocked. Who are you?|
|Sara||I'm Sara, the sprite there is Lippy, and that's (user).|
|Lilith||My name is Lilith. I'm one of the tournament judges... Or I was, before it all went sideways.|
|Lippy||Well, if there is any consolation, it's that no one seems to have been seriously injured.|
|Sara||Well that's a relief!|
|Ellis||It sure is. But how did this happen?!|
|Hodd||My... ultimate menu... It... It... Oh no...|
|Sara||We know you didn't mean for this to happen. But, um... maybe you sorta...|
|Lippy||Perhaps you two should take this opportunity to reflect upon the choices that have led to this.|
|Lilith||Well, at least we're all still standing. All's well that ends well, right?|
|Hodd||We are... unworthy of your forgiveness. You're very kind.|
|Lilith||I'm used to this sort of thing, thanks to my brother. But do make sure you reflect upon this, like Lippy said!|
|Ellis||I promise. I'll think long and hard. But, wow, Lilith... You're so strong!|
|Hodd||You're certainly no normal civilian! To fight so effectively with a ladle and a frying pan...! Are you a chef?|
|Lilith||I'm no professional or anything, but I'm a pretty decent cook, yeah.|
|Ellis||Wow, a great fighter and a good cook. That's so inspiring to me as a woman!|
|Lilith||It... It is?|
|Hodd||Very much so. I believe you may be the teacher I've been searching for.|
|Ellis||I respect you so much, Lilith! Please, accept me as a disciple!|
|Hodd||What? She's mine! Great teacher, show me the path of culinary mastery!|
|Lilith||What? What's happening? I can't... I don't want this!|
|Ellis||Master Lilith! Please, wait!|
|Hodd||I will follow you to the ends of the earth, Great Teacher!|
|Sara||They don't lack for spirit.|
|Lippy|| Nor fortitude. I bet either one could emerge unscathed from a pit of monsters. Hm...? These readings...! |
The materials we obtained from those monsters contain some unusual power. According to my analysis...
These special properties would make them particularly suited for weaponry. Perhaps we should attempt to upgrade them?
|Sara||Maybe we should! But first... I'm exhausted, and I'm starving! You wanna go eat, (user)?|
|Lippy||That certainly sounds lovely to me. Let's do just that!|
|Sara||But just like... a normal burger or something. Nothing fancy, right...?|
