Captured! What Bad Luck! I got Reborn into another Life and now I am a Side Character 5

After Halloween Month and a small vacation we can finally pick up my D&D Isekai Story again! In this story I fall off some stairs and get Isekaid.. wanting to be more of me! While reborn in the character of Elle.. all my traits get amplified. I became kinder, smarter.. but also A LOT more Unlucky! To make matters worse! I am not even the Main character!

Episode 4 -Recap

In the last Episode Elle finally got her first real quest for the Owls Nest! To disrupt a gambler in the city of Twiddir. Unbeknownst to Elle she is merely used as a distraction for a heist. Elle gets injured and actually kills a guy and her companions Mirina the drunken fist monk and Ynaja the dark skinned cleric that is very into romances take her back and leave her in her own bed.. yet the guild leader of the Owls Nest seems to think very lowly of Elle.

Day ?? Time Unknown!

Dear scraps of clothes from the dead person in my cell remind me to add you to the diary later if I ever make it out! I have been kidnapped. I have deduced we are one a ship.. one that is still docked. I have reached this conclusion by the sound of seagulls flying over on a fairly regular basis. My nausea and vomit also is equal to that I would have on moderately still water.  I have been here for .. I think I have been here for I think two days now.. based on the guard routine.  These men are cloaked but I hear them speak Infernal.. which leads me to believe they may be Tieflings.  There is a guy.. who takes me out of the cell and he sticks needles in me.. but he is wearing on of those plague doctor masks… when he does I am strapped to a table so I can not deduce his height properly. 

Being stabbed with those needles really hurts!  Yet I find myself without much fear?! Why?! Because I am a side character.. I fall into these tropes…ever since I have been Isekaid.. that means rescue will come as soon as I am on death’s door.  For this reason I have not eaten.. I want my health to deteriorate as fast as possible.. as I feel it will expedite my release. However I feel my mental capacities waning….so I will write what I will know now that I still can. Sorry about the smell.. dear diary if this page is inserted in between. All I had was vomit and dirt to make some ink.. well and some blood.. but that felt needlessly edgy! 

It all started when Maine got back into town.. a new quest showed up. Tiefling girls with more or less my description have gone missing. All a bit prettier than me..and non had glasses.. but still!  I of course offered to take the quest along with Maine.. with me being bait. She refused saying that  she would take this quest alone.  I should not be put at risk.  Which left me without a quest again! I tried to tag along with Oscott the knight who had to fight a bunch of artificers up in the town of Reh’dyt. He seemed to be okay and then he told me he left his “thingamabob” at home and he needed to get it first. He told me to wait at the port and he would come get me. I think he must have forgotten to pick me up because I waited for over 18 hours for his return. Maybe this item required some grooming! I would have waited longer.. but I heard a voice from an alley asking me for help. It was a man with a plague doctor mask who told me if I could help him. He was doing an experiment.. he told me to pick a card.. he had made 13 of them.. the higher the number i would draw the better.  I drew one… then I felt a hit in my neck.. and I woke up on board of this ship.

A day after the previous entry..somewhere early I think!

Sorry dear cloth.. I had to stop writing yesterday.. The sickness got me.. the smell of decomposition of the body next to me is getting worse. It’s a girl that looks a bit like me… Well the facial structure of her half decaying face shows we have a lot of similar features.. like eye distance, cheekbone height and horn structureI was also taken in for another test. This time he had a mage next to me as I was strapped to a chair! I am pretty sure the Plague Doctor is a tiefling as well.. his height matches and while he does wear shoes.. it is a type that would support fooves!  Which are foot hooves if you haven’t been reading along. Regardless.. he had a mage with him.. donned in black.. half orc but of a darker skin tone.  The doctor who was referred to as Lord Febricitantem would flip a coin.. if I get it right I would get the coin.. if I got it wrong I would be Shocking Grasped. We played this game for 20 rounds.. I am back without any coins.  There was a lot of pain.  At one point the doctor told me I could guess both..so I did.. and then the coin fell through a crack and landed sideways! What bad luck!

He seemed to be very pleased though! I told him if someone could please feed my cat. He told me I would soon be able to myself.. well a part of me would. Soon Lady Doom would inhabit the body of her daughter and she could finally walk the earth again. I told him that I do not believe my mother was called lady doom! Such a person would clearly be shunned by society and Elle ..before I inhabited her or maybe I merged with her.. seemed to have a normal life. Of course I did not tell him about the last part. He told me Lady Doom was my mother. He told me I could destroy the world. I .. told him I destroyed a lot of things by accident but I would never do so willingly and if he was wise he would let me go ..because attempting to put someone else in my body surely would count as a death flag for him! I am just a side character after all and those always get rescued..I would be powerless to stop that. He did not believe me! He himself used a shocking grasp on me. It hurt but I remained awake… this is odd.

You see , given how much experience I have earned during my quests so far I would say I could not be a mage of higher than the third level. Which means my maximum health points according to Dungeon and Dragons logic should put me at 18. Now given that I am so prone to self hurt I am willing to believe my constitution is slightly higher than that of an average mage so I assume it would be around a +2.  That would put me at 24 health points.  I have received 21 shocks and a Shocking grasp deals 1d8 HP. Meaning they would have rolled a 1 on every bit of damage..because I do not feel that close to fainting.. close enough.. and I am in a lot of pain.. but I feel I could take at least one or two more of these..does that make them unlucky for rolling bad or me.. for not getting the blessing of being knocked out?! Lord Febricitantem seemed very interested in this when I told him! He said the ritual to resurrect Lady Doom would take place tonight?! Oh I hear the guards coming for me!

Day 52 Night

Dear Diary.. I have been reunited with you…. I do not know what happened as I lay on a ritual stone table.. a broken horseshoe.. a five leaf clover.. some broken glass and the fur of a black cat were placed around me.. when suddenly we heard screaming from the upper deck! The Lord began to chant and my vision began to blur.. as if I was looking at two places at once.. I saw something.. I saw Maine.. but not in this world.. but in mine. She worked in a call center and was in a Wheelchair… she was very depressed and cried looking at herself in the mirror. Then I saw a woman.. she wore a dress.. well one of those weird ones which show your legs, and only hide your backside.. She also had a grey skin.. similar to a drow like Carlita but with a lot more humanoid features. Her hair is as white as snow! Her clothes had all sorts of holes in them.. like moth bites .. but in a fairly regular pattern.. dare I say the outfit looked kinda skimpy! She called me daughter… and I said no! We are genetically too diverse to be the same.. I could barely hear her answer as right above me someone was impaled on a big sword and blood began leaking below the deck all over my face… The doctor lord got distracted by this and the sigil I was laying on as well… so he polymorphed himself into a big bug .. I think.. my glasses were knocked off and what part was still left on my face were covered in blood. He fled the scene and Maine showed up.. just as I expected.. However she also had another companion along with her.

Maho the Drow Sailour that looked like Carlita was with her. “See there is the pretty little thing.. told ya I spotted them draggin her onto Beshabas’Pearl… no sign of the creeper that was with her  though. Maine freed me from my bindings and Maho greeted me first. “Nice to see you again lass, thought I had lost my chance with ya there for a bit.. luckily tha town members remembered a girl smelling like fish walking to yer guild.. or I would not have been able to get ya the help of blondie here! Great swing to her sword.. but not much in terms of an investigator is she?’   I asked her what kind of chance she missed..  and she just smirked telling me I owed her a reward for finding me. She would tell me soon enough. She told me to take a bath before though.  She helped me off the table  but in her attempt to lift me she must have accidentally pinched me in the posterior. Maine asked me about details of the man who held me.. I told her everything I knew.. but she asked I knew where “the antlers” were. I don’t know anything about it and she snapped a bit at me.. making me cry.  I did not want to disappoint her.. I just did not see any antlers. I told her about my vision.. but as soon as I mentioned her in the wheelchair she told Maho.. to take me away.. she would look for Lord Febricitantem. I told her he changed into a bug thing and he flew out a porthole.
She softened up a bit after that.. telling me to not worry she would wrap this up. 

Maho took me home and even helped me get a fat fish for Summer. I wasn’t sure how long I had been missing. Maho confirmed it was about three days. Summer apparently found a way to go out a window I broke earlier and kept herself nice and fed. She was happy so see me return though.  Maho asked me if I wanted three pussies in my bed tonight and I told her that I barely could manage to look after one cat.. Maho said that was not what she meant and winked at me. I told her I was confused and she just chuckled calling me adorable. Giving me a careful hug. She asked me on a date.. as a reward for helping me save me. I agreed, but I might need to do another quest to be able to afford the date.. she told me she would pay..she would use the money she looted from the Tieflings of the Beshaba’s Pearl.. so  we agreed on seeing each other in three days. She asked me if I put out on first dates. I told her that I put out fires on a fairly regular basis.. as I knock over candles all the time. She wanted to say something but then did not and gave me another hug.. I guess my back myst have been slippery from all the blood ..because her hand slipped to my butt.

So that was a few missing days.. I really want to talk to Maine about her being Isekaid as well. It fits her behaviour pattern.. but if people try to put a demon in my body it might be wise if we look for a way home again.  I am not sure if it is possible but I should try. Rho stopped by telling they were throwing a party for Maine to celebrate her rescuing me.. asking me if I was fit enough to party.. I told him I was.. and I would come soon.. then I slipped in my bath and hit my head and I guess I must have dealt myself three damage because I woke up a lot later with Summer licking my head!  Oh well.. I did not really feel like a party anyway!  I feel a bit sad.. but when I think about three days from now.. about having a nice evening with Miss Maho.. I can not help but to stop wagging my tail… that’s kind of weird huh?! Oh yes reminder to myself to really look into this Lady Doom thing a bit as well!  That’s it I am going to sleep! Good night diary! Good night whoever reads it.. .I really hope it’s me.. or anyone I pass it down too!
