Let's Play Sengoku Gensokyo - Day 54

Spoiler
Show
We attack twice on the Clock Tower, and are met with mere fairies both times. SDM, I are very disappoint.


The fact that we can't even capture them makes it even more boring. Oh, how I can't wait for the difficulty spike that comes with the endgame...


Almost done with the Clock Tower. Here's hoping the SDM Top Floor is more of a challenge.


Won't anything more exciting happen?

**********

Kaguya: Hey Eirin, hasn't it been even more boring than usual lately?

Eirin: Has it? I have been quite busy with many things myself.


No one has come to us even after we joined that youkai's game. It's far to much tedium than my lone self can contain.

Is that not a good thing? The best times are when there's nothing going on.

Since when did you become such a pacifist? I was hoping something would happen, but so far, joining that youkai's game has been meaningless.

I was against joining it from the very beginning, if you remember. So, what would you like to do, princess?

Hmm...If no one wishes to come to us, then we should go to them.

Are you serious, princess?

Of course I am. What are you trying to say?

Defending ourselves from invaders would be a just and worthy cause, but attacking them first wouldn't be quite the same.

I know already. Why do we need to be so reserved?

I believe it could make us stand out in a particularly bad way...But if you are so insistent, it shall be done. Tewi, please come here for a minute.

Tewi: Uh huh, you called, master?

Please go to the shrine and hand this over to the people there.

Understood. I'll be off then!

You were prepared for this, weren't you?

That is my duty, after all.

**********

Tewi: ...So, that's how it is.

Marisa: What's how what is?

Reimu: It's a war declaration. From those people who hid the moon a while back.


So, now that we've discussed matters...Do you choose to...receive this letter?

What are you talking about? Didn't you bring it here?

I might be able to accidentally forget about bringing it here with a little incentive~.

You're looking for a bribe aren't ya, you swindler bunny?

How mean, I don't think I said anything that wasn't beneficial for you all~.

You're still taking advantage of the situation...Don't be silly. If they want to throw the first punch at us, we'll hit back three times as hard!

That's how it is, then. We accept the war declaration.

My, I see. Master also told me to tell you all to make sure your necks are ready, cuz they'll be on the line~.

Tewi then skipped at high speed away from the area.

That bunch hasn't learned at all from the incident they caused...We'll just have to put them down again!

...Ya know that's how she wants ya to react, right?

"Eientei Forest" - War has been declared.

Early update because of Thanksgiving and all.

It struck me as odd that Eientei would send Tewi, arguably the most unreliable and untrustworthy person in Gensokyo, to deliver the war declaration. Why didn't Eirin select Reisen to go, since Reisen is a whole lot more reliable and dutiful? But then it hit me: Eirin doesn't want to participate in the war! She'll humor the princess, but she'll also select the person more likely to conveniently "forget" to deliver the war declaration.

Regardless, I'm willing to spend thousands on defense, but not one Ouki on tribute!
