Let's Play Sengoku Gensokyo - Day 74

Spoiler
Show
Yuki: Ah, someone really weird is here.

Cirno: Ehh, where, where?

I meant you!

...Hmph, I'm the strongest, yet you call me weird!? I guess that means you're prepared to lose!

Prepared? I won't lose to some weirdo weakling like you!

Mai: ......*thwap*

Oww! Mai, what was that for!?

.........She looks a bit like me.


Ehh? Hmm, if you ignore the blue hair and the ribbon, there's nothing else that's similar. And what's in your heads are definitely different too!

.........*thwap thwap*

Ow ow owwww! Why are YOU getting mad~!?

...See, you're the weirdos.

**********

BGM: Black Tortoise ~The Seven Northern Mansions~

Mai and Yuki actually make a pretty decent pair. Yuki fights you up-close, while Mai sits back with her very high RNG and WIS stats (both have higher stats as bosses than as playable characters). For this fight, Mai's constant retreats make it hard for us to attack her for any significant amount. She closes out the fight with several strong ranged attacks, taking down Cirno and severely wounding the rest of our party.

Kaguya: Oh my, what cute little guests we have.

Yuki: Who are you calling guests...Wait, don't tell me you're...

Mmhmm. I am the master of this mansion. If you surrender and leave, I'll be happy to overlook your transgressions here.

Huh, is that so? Do you think I'll just easily agree to that?

I suppose that you were never going to exceed my expectations, indeed. In that case, I presume you're prepared?


Hmph, there's nothing that can beat me and Mai working together! Mai, let's show them what we've got!

Mai: .........*nod*

**********

BGM: Black Tortoise ~The Seven Northern Mansions~

Yuki and Mai have rather peculiar special abilities. Yuki's will raise all her stats when she's paired with Mai...


...while Mai's will raise all her stats when she's fighting apart from Yuki. I wonder what that says about their relationship?

This fight goes a lot smoother. While Mai is still difficult to hit from afar, we managed to sweep all the mooks (and Yuki) who were in Close range, giving Shanghai and Reimu the room to close in on Mai and just barely defeat her in time.



**********

Yuki: No way~, this can't be happening!

...We must escape.

Y-Yeah, we'll go back to Lady Shinki...


Kaguya: My my, where do you think you're going?

Guh!!

Eirin: It seems you did whatever you pleased here, hmm?

Reisen: Gah, the folding screens have graffiti scribbled all over!

Tewi: There's scrawls on the corridors too!

It seems you made some of our residents cry as well...Do you think you went just a bit too far, perhaps...?

...Run away.

Ah, Mai!? Don't just leave me here! You're so mean!

...I wonder who's the mean one around here...?

I-I'm really sorry!

...Should we not give chase?

They look so pitiful, let's not threaten them too much. I'll leave the tidying up of this place to you all.

You heard her.

I knew it...Fiiine.

Do your best~!

Ah!? You're not getting away!

**********

Only a single attack from the Makai Goddess Army this turn, targetting the Faintly Dark Road again.


We managed to win pretty easily (since they're just a bunch of mooks, even if they're rather high in level). However, we took a lot of damage this turn, especially from the first battle. This has caused us to actually run out of Ouki for healing. With a mere 180 Ouki remaining, I had to refuse to heal Shanghai, Alice, and Cirno in order to get everyone else up to full health.

We're going to have to decide how aggressive we want to be for a bit. Do we keep attacking to capture more territories to rebuild our Ryumaku, or hold on and try to store up resources? What's the plan here?

What shall we do, then? If we choose to keep attacking, where should we target next? Or would holding the fort be a better choice?
