Journal Compendium 1 - 7/13/2028
Yay! I finally figured it out! Well, I know these Demonic Compendium Memory thingies are supposed to be used to record information about the demons I captured or what not, but meh, that's booooring. So I decided to use this as a memory device, kind of like a journal instead! Much better don't you think? Anyways, I just got my demon buster license and was on my way towards Arcadia, where I heard cool things were happening. However, on my way, I ran into a group of other demon busters, scary looking ones in red robes and all of that stuff. I heard them talking about stuff like, taking over, or freeing the people, or liberating something or other I wasn't quite sure, anyways, the next thing I know there was a puff of smoke, and they were gone. I hope nothing happens during my stay there in Arcadia! That would make me a very sad fish. Anyways, I'm.... going to go now! Just wanted to share all that stuffs! BYE!
Journal Compendium 203 - 10/31/2028
Things have been going absolutely crazy this halloween. I honestly have *no* idea why we celebrate this ancient decrepit tradition when we know that there are such things such as ghosts, wizards, and stuff like that, but oh well, sometimes it is fun to dress up as ourselves! I have now been here in Arcadia for a few months and I have to say, I've absolutely LOVED it! It's a wonderful town with some really cool people. Sure it has its problems but what town doesn't!? Anyways, all this blah, blah, blah I want to get to what I really wanted to record about. I have to be honest, I almost completely forgot about the whole Gaian incident not too long about, but I have noticed recently that a couple of people have been missing recently. Both UnluckyOrpheus and iHanamura two people that came to Arcadia around the same time I did, have recently gone missing. I have tried to search for them absolutely everywhere, but I just can not find them! I hope that this isn't tied to what I heard earlier about those assassins, though I fear it is. I did notice something extremely odd about iHanamura's house, it seemed... just plain odd, but yeah I think I already said that didn't I!. Now I've been into iHanamura's house plenty of times before, but I saw a lot of weird demons in there, they saw me and left pretty quickly but I wonder what that was all about. I mean they didn't attack me, maybe they lost their owner? True I never did notice iHanamura's demons, but STILL! I don't know, maybe I'm making something out of nothing. Or maybe I'm making nothing out of something. Or, maybe I am making nothing of nothing but how do I not know that there isn't something about nothing that could actually be something you know? Yeah, I think I just confused myself. Whatever! I need to rush over to the town meeting though. I was told it was veeeerrry important. So like, I've got to cut this short and not talk so much. Okay! Well, bye!
Journal Compendium 205 - 10/31/2028
I just got to the meeting and it looks like the head speaker is going to start! I'll let him talk and see if I can record it on this machine!
*Bang bang* Order! Order! Quiet down everyone!
*ahem* You're not the judge here...
Oh... right... sorry... um... here you go!
Thank you all for coming today! I wanted to call this meeting because I was informed recently by a private informant that something dastardly has taken place in Arcadia! Some of you may have noticed the disappearance of UnluckyOrpheus and iHanamura, I can confirm with you that they did not leave on their own accord! Something evil has been done to them and I know for a fact, that the people that are responsible are in this very room!
*overall gasp in the room/shock/horror*
Now, let us remain calm. To some of you, this is just confirming your suspicions, to others, I know that this may have been very shocking for you. To the final batch of people, you are the very ones responsible. I will offer you one chance to come clean!
"I saw Skylore08 down on iHanamura road!"
"I didn't do anything! If anyone you should look at, you should look at Glocker! He's everywhere!"
"Are you guys blind? It's obviously MichiruSenko! Look at how she has been acting!"
"Yeah! That's right she has been acting weird! I bet she's the one responsible"
"No! It wasn't her it..."
*unable to tell what else is being said throughout the commotion*
*people start to quiet down*
Alright, alright, alright. Well, it looks like MichiruSenko, you're the one that most people seem to believe is responsible for this mess. Where were you last night.
"Uh... Uh... I was at home!"
Can anyone verify your whereabouts?
"No... I was home alone! But everyone saw my lights on right?"
*murmur of agreement*
That isn't good enough, if I were an assassin I would leave my lights on too! What were you doing at your home at night?
"I don't know! Whatever you are thinking it wasn't me!!!"
Just like any assassin would say! Get her and throw her into Celu Gold, by herself! If she doesn't survive, we'll know she's innocent. If she does survive, she's obviously a Gaian assassin as no one would be able to have those skills to survive it alone! GET HER!
*mob commotion as people grab MichiruSenko and throw her into Celu Gold and close the door behind her*
"It wasn't me!!...."
Journal Compendium 206
Well, we just got back from MichiruSenko's house and sad to say, there wasn't anything at her house to say if she was an assassin or not. It was overall a clean place and it looked like she was just cooking dinner last night. She was acting weird though, but it looks as though she was just an innocent Arcadian like anyone else. But enough for that for now, I need to get home, if there really are Gaian assassins out there, it's probably best not to stay out at night for too long.
Journal Compendium 210 - 11/1/2028
I decided to leave my Journal Compendium on last night, just in case anyone decided to try to get in my house and get to me, perhaps my compendiums would be able to help track the killer. What I got... was a lot more scary... I'll replay a few of them.

"So, you'll take care of everything for me?"
"Thanks tenkido, sorry about this, I just can't stand around here anymore! Rumors of assassins, rumors of even worse things here! This is not what I signed up for!"
"Don't worry about it ryo.the.legend, I'll take care of everything for you here, relax, take some time off, you'll be fine! You will have nothing to worry about while you're away.
"Thanks tenkido, you're the best!"
Er... sorry, wrong one. That was actually what I overheard from my neighbor ryo.the.legend... but yeah the one BEFORE that one is actually the scary one... here... let me play it for you.

"Shh, shh, hush now Akeashar, don't worry, what I injected into you will eventually run its course. Sure, you may not survive it, but it's all in the name of science, yes? You may think I'm some crazed demon researcher but when my tests finally show the true potential of fusing, I'll be a savior! Not some insane Lunatic!"
"Who is that!? Who's there!?"
Well now, I see your experiments are continuing, even after you were banished from Souhonzan, you have come here to do your little experiments hrmm?
"Who is there!? How do you know who I am!?"
Don't remember my voice? Was it not I the one that sent you away? A message, straight from Lord Doukan. You weren't welcome in our town anymore, and frankly, you're not welcome here neither.
"It's... you!? What are you doing here, I thought... so the Gaians have come here to Arcadia! Well, don't you think I won't let you get away with this! Afterall I know who you are! You're..."
- silence -
It's a shame Glocker, crazed demon researcher as you were, you might have actually done some good if you only listened. Oh well, Lord Doukan was right to turn you away, and who is this... Ah, Akeashar, well, can't leave just any innocent Arcadian as a witness shall we? Let's see what we can do with you...
Journal Compendium 211 - 11/1/2028
I'm going to have to turn over these transmissions over to the town meeting today! Eep! It's already THAT late? I've got to get going! I'm going to be late!
Journal Compendium 220 - 11/1/2028
(Even though no one is really able to listen to this, I wonder, but still, I'll say it anyway! If you couldn't tell, there have been 9 compendiums between this one and the last one, meaning a lot happened, but I'll try to summarize it though I might play a few of them back. Though again, don't know why anyone would come in here and listen in to my private journal entires, but... what will be will be... I guess...)
SO! *ahem* Anyways... today was an intense day. By the time I got in there, things were very, very.... unruly. After I presented Compendium 208, things just got into a riot! Eventually people started getting up on two sides. Doubts were casted on Mirrorenn or LedZepMan92. It was very intense!
Journal Compendium 213 - 15 minutes in wrote:
LedZepMan92 - Why are you voting me!? What have I said? What have I done?
Mirrorenn - Stop upsetting my onee-chan! I'm innocent! What have I done!?
LedZepMan92 - Well, you're voting for me! Obviously you're the guilty one!
MIrrorenn - Well you're voting for me! I was just going with the crowd! What is your reason!?
LedZepMan92 - I don't need a reason! I'm innocent! Why do you feel like you need to justify your actions?
Mirrorenn - And you think you don't? You think you're all so self-righteous? That's the perfect attribute for a Gaian! You don't think we need to be careful now with what was just released to us by that recording!?
There was a lot more to that and it got really heated. Then the meeting leader got everyone's attention.
Journal Compendium 215 - 5 minutes in wrote:
That's enough! Everyone, sit down, and quiet down! Now!
*sounds of feet shuffling and chairs moving as people are seated down*
Alright, let's settle this civilly. It appears that the main two people in contention here are LedZepMan92, and Mirrorenn. I want both of you to come up here right now!
*sounds of two pairs of feet moving up to the center stage*
Alright, we are now going to settle this the way that *all* important decisions should be made. I have here in my hand a deck of cards, you two will play a game of WAR
*Sound of deck shuffling*
Needless to say, it went on a while. After 2000 battles, LedZepMan92 was down to his final card...
Journal Compendium 215 - 4 hours and 37 minutes in wrote:
LedZepMan92 - comeon... comeon... comeon... please be that ace... please be that ace...
Mirrorenn - Three!
LedZepMan92 - YES! And I put down my!
LedZepMan92 - ... TWO!?
*all gasp and murmur*
Meeting Leader - hrm... hrmm? Hrm!? What!? What? huh? Oh... OH!! The game's finally over! Right um... well *yawn*... it looks like Mirrorenn is the winner! Take LedZepMan92 away! His death will be in the dungeons... or better yet we'll give you a choice! You can either go into the dungeons and fight until you defeat Zhu Que by yourself... or you can have duel with GMJoLt!
LedZep Man92 - Well... I'm not really used to this whole game world or whatever... but I know one thing! I can always count on the GM's! I choose to have a duel with GMJoLt! I know I have a much better chance of winning *that* duel!
Meeting Leader - As you wish! Gaurds! Take him away!... GAURDS! Someone wake up those guards! Don't they know that it's horrible manners to fall asleep during a town meeting!? Get them up!
Needless to say... well... I don't need to say do I. At the end of the day, LedZepMan92
's words of being wrongly convicted a second time rang true. Maybe it was because people were mad at his avatar of saying that commies weren't cool. Or maybe it was because people thought that his signature was just too condescending. Regardless to say, has been another sad day, though most people have rushed back home, just like I have. It's getting dark fairly quickly out now. Though we have one Crazed Demon Researcher gone from our midst, the reality is six have already perished, and not one Assassin has been killed. Will Arcadia truly fall under this threat? One thing is for sure, fear has now run rampant, with no Assassin identified, perhaps this entire thing has been in our heads? Though that can't be... what of our friends that have surely died! Sure, there has been no witnesses, and there's no evidence except that they have disappeared, but still... no one feels safe now.
Journal Compendium 222 - 1:37 - 11/2/2028
I was woken up by midnight, to find the entire town in chaos. Everyone was running everywhere. And I mean it, *everyone* was up! I quickly got dressed, gathered my demons, put my equipment and went outside, who knows, maybe the assassins got bold and decided to make an upfront assault. Maybe I would finally have a chance to teach all of these people a lesson! These people that have brought so much pain to us! I rushed outside, expecting to see danger, but then someone grabbed onto me and started crying, sobbing, uncontrollably "we're all doomed! He's gone... he's gone don't you understand!" as he started to continue to cry I tried to calm him down but he was too shaken up. Another person came by and was sobbing silently by herself, I tried to approach her to ask her what had happened, but was unable to approach her to ask her any questions at all. Then I heard the Knight Templars going through the streets shouting orders for everyone to head to the Lord Judah's Cathedral in the town for an important mass. By the time I got there, many messians were in full mourning clothes, I finally was able to get my answer from one of the messians.
"What happened here!?"
"Oh... our precious leader, our prophet, Lord Judah, has been murdered!"
"MURDERED!? What has happened to him?"
"Yes, our Lord Judah has been murdered! He disguised himself to be just like any other Arcadian, under the guise of the name 'YuliKun', however, he has been found out and assassinated! Surely this is the doom of us all!"
I now understood the cause for the mourning.
I stood there. Shocked. I couldn't move. YuliKun was one of my next door neighbors, I talked to him every day since I came here. He was very open, very welcoming, I now understood why, he was Lord Judah, The Lord Judah. The Prophet of the Messiah. Next door to me this entire time, communing with his people and taking part as we dealt with this assassin invasion. And now, YuliKun, Lord Judah, is dead!
Someone came up beside me then... and what I heard I will remember forever
"Do you fret, little lamb, his sacrifice was necessary, it's all for the greater good, you see."
I tried to turn around and locate who spoke it to me, but they were gone, or maybe they weren't, I couldn't tell now with all the mourners that stood around me.
My shock, my sadness, had now turned into anger. The assassins will pay. They must pay. I sent word throughout all of the people in the town when the next town meeting would be. I will not be in there in the midst of the votes, rather, I will be watching, waiting, observing, trying to spot who these bloody assassins are. I have made a vow this day, Lord Judah will not have died in vain. If even Arcadia shall fall, I will continue on, and lead the teachings.
The end may be near, but it won't be near the end for me.
Journal Compendium 230 - 20:27 - 11/2/2028
We have had made steps towards our vengeance today. Once again, Mirrorenn was brought up, though this time doubt was also cast upon tenkido, another member, who was brought in to replace ryo.the.legend, but ultimately, the town gathered together and decided it was Mirrorenn who should face the untold dangers of the outer world. As we approached Mirrorenn, he knew he was trapped, he knew that he couldn't get away. No matter, he was quickly dealt with. When we raided his home, the red garments were spread out very quickly. However, Mirrorenn seemed to know his downfall, so outside of the knowledge that there are indeed other assassins out in our midst, nothing could be said definitively from his home.
Today, was indeed a bittersweet day. A victory, but at what price? A great loss has come to Arcadia. I call upon the Messiah for protection this night, let this evil not gain the upper hand, may the light of Messiah shine over us this evening. And for all of us, let us be vigilant!
Journal Compendium 240 - 11/3/2028 - 03:00
I wasn't able to go to sleep, so I decided to take a walk. I used protection of course. However, as I was walking out, I saw a red robe and quickly hid myself. The person passed me and I decided to follow. I stalked Cervios where I saw him with a group of other assassins. I couldn't overhear what they were saying, but it was a quick meeting and then they fled off. Cervios, however, was still in sight so I stalked him. I don't think he was aware of my movements. I noticed quickly, however, where we were going, we were going to the house of Masuyuu. I knew I wouldn't be able to take on Cervios alone, but I had to try! I knew where we were going but Cervios was still faster than I was, and eventually I lost him. I knew where he was going however and I rushed quickly to Masuyuu's house. However, he wasn't there! I opened the door quickly and rushed in and tried to see if I could find him but there wasn't any sign of him, none at all! I searched, everywhere. Then I heard a voice.
What, you don't recognize my voice? I am sad to see that this has been the path that you have taken. After all of that, I still had high hopes for you, but now, you, are just a common assassin. Pity. I thought you were trained better
What do you know? With words like that, you sound like you're old and senile. Well no matter, I can't leave any witnesses, pity.
After that I heard a lot of commotion, blades clashing, dogs barking, I'm sure the entire area knew that there was a fight going on and all around me I could see lights turning on as people were being woken up. I rushed outside and it seemed like it only took me a minute, but by the time I got outside, there was nothing. Other people started coming out of their houses, looking at me, trying to figure out what was wrong, and soon everyone came to where I was and I noticed why. There were significant blood stains all around me, on the house, on the ground.
Eventually everyone was able to calm down when they noticed I myself neither was harmed, nor were any of my weapons bloodied (sad to say, I wish I would have been able to slain that monster, Cervios). As people were leaving, I decided to walk home when I was pulled aside in the ally.
"Hey there young'un. I noticed you earlier, decided to follow you. Don't worry about Cervios, he's been taken care of. Now don't you fret and don't you worry about a thing. Just head home, there is one less assassin on the streets, though I'm sorry I wasn't able to stop him from getting to Masuyuu first. Masuyuu was a fine Arcadian."
I turned around to see who was talking to me, but there wasn't anyone there! (Rather frustrating, trying to find three people, and now not being able to find any of them). At the end of the day though, if Cervios was taken care of, that means that only four assassins remain if I am able to recall the number of assassins that I saw at the meeting. There may be hope for Arcadia yet.
Journal Compendium 263 - 11/3/2028 - 20:00
After much journaling, I think I've calmed down a bit from the night, adrenaline has been pumping! I was completely exhausted by the time I was able to get to the voting and I've got to still say, I'm still exhausted so I'll try to keep this one short, though it went on for a looong while, as if you couldn't tell from the timestamp, I just got home from the meeting.
It came down in the end to two people, tenkido and thedemyxismad. It was really weird, with tenkido saying that he wouldn't vote for thedemyxismad even if she was an assassin and voted for himself really caused a lot of confusion, but what was more confusing was the drunk Jikokabe's vote. I still have to wonder if this was just one of those times, or maybe marubadtz broke Jikokabe's heart recently and so he got drunk and did a revenge vote? Or maybe something or something else happened I don't really know and frankly am too tired to care at this point.
Anyways, at the end of the day, thedemyxismad was escorted to her doom, as should have been since I am quite positive that her face was one of the faces that I saw last night, even though it is a bit blurry. With one less assassin on the street, friends are becoming fewer and fewer. I don't know what is going to happen next, it's getting really intense. Friends are doubting each other and bonds that were formed are breaking and are being reformed. It is starting to get deep in the night and I just need to get my sleep.
I swear I saw the ghost of LedZepMan92 not too long ago as well. I have to seriously lay off of Masuyuu's cookies I'm sure that's the cause of it.
Journal Compendium 266 - 11/4/2028 - 10:00
Hey ya'll, I'm at the town meeting right now, though I'm still super tired and ill, those cookies, I swear, something was in those cookies, ugh. I woke up in the middle of the night because my stomach was just feeling so sick. To make matters worse, something crazy happened last night.
Someone knocked on my door and when I opened it, I found myself looking at a pure red robe. I was feeling too ill though to recognize the face, but regardless before I could even fully get it in my head and stuff, I was pushed onto the ground.
This person whispered into my ear,
"We will not be defeated easily, no matter what your resolve is. Think that we will crumble before you and your pursuit against us? Look for the Arcadian Shevz tomorrow at the meeting, you will find that he is no longer there among you. You think that we will fall quickly? Look around you, I saw you last night when we had our meeting and you might have seen who we are, but worry not, your voice won't be heard anymore"
I need felt a needle at my neck and I started struggling. I heard some glass break and the next thing I knew I heard some curses and the pressure on my body was gone, I looked around for the Gaian Assassin but s/he was no more. I did notice that the needle that was going to be injected into me was there broken beside me.
I am reporting this all now because indeed, I don't see Shevz anywhere, I hope that nothing happens to him.
I also was visted last night by a very peculiar person, I'll talk about that more later though, the town meeting is about to happen.
Journal Compendium 3*3 - 11*/202* - *1:**
This will be the last post that I make on this. This device was too damaged in the attack and our escape anyway. I did make a backup of everything that happened in Arcadia. I hope that our history can be saved. Indeed, as the true Lord Judah, I will need to one day lead my people back into the land and them to to our town and rebuild it. The Messiah prophesied that we would suffer, I could not imagine that it would be so much suffering. May the Messiah forgive me for my ignorance, I truly thought that this evil would be able to be overcome peacefully. It appears I was wrong. However, this will not be the end.
Journal Compendium 286 - 11/4/2028 - 8:00 PM
Darn, this probably got damaged in the escape back there. The Gaian Assassins are probably tracking us closely. I won't be able to really keep this up any longer, we have all escaped but we must flee. Perhaps I will be able to settle in another land, a neutral land and create a town where the assassins won't be able to reach us. I have heard of some people gathering in a different land perhaps I can find solace in them. However, Arcadia will still be my home. We will return and rebuild the land. We must. However, there is no time to think about this now. We must keep moving.
Journal Compendium 290 - 11/5/2028 - 2:00 AM
By word of the Messiah! We're under attack. Get out of here! All of you! I will stay here and hold off the assassins. GET OUT NOW! There isn't any time to spare. I can deal with the likes of these. GO!
Journal Compendium *** - ******** - ****
Gah, the dates aren't showing anymore. I'll see if I can fix this. The assassins are gone, but they have taken over Arcadia by now I am sure. They may have won this round, but no doubt they will return. I don't know where everyone is, but I have to gather them up and lead them to safety. The assassins won't follow us too far away from Arcadia. I only hope that the others have found a safe place...
