I would've liked for her to found what she was looking for.
I think I would've liked that too.

Definitely regret not resolving anything there...

Did any players surprise you with what they did with the various plots and NPCs lying about?

Did go kinda pear shaped there didn't it?
How badly did we bork it compared to what you were expecting/hoping would happen?

To be honest, when there was that big gap of no one advancing through the answers, I thought it was going to end with no one reaching the end. When I started the quest, I figured there's be not many actually trying it (not a knock on anyone, but there's a recent event structure is a thing). The fact that people went through it was nice. I'll also admit, there were more than a few times where I went, "That's not the answer I was expecting....but I can't argue that it's a clever answer."

Celery found the actual ending somewhat slapstick. I was surprised that y'all let Damashihime leave given that the quest touched on her twice, I thought for sure the third appearance would have aroused too much suspicion.

Also somewhat surprised that y'all didn't ask for any assistance dealing with Kaori's sworn enemy problem. Granted, Kaori doesn't trust anything Scorpion, and a horse is a very safe and reasonable ask, but it'll just be fodder for Chapter 3, which I hope Kaori'll stick around for.

Ah well, seems we borked up it royally.

On Rou's part, do you expect a former bandit to make good decisions when member of the guard comes bursting in with a lantern shining in his face? Or tell a guard to stay put? Heck, dude was mainly the messenger as it were during the whole thing. It was a good excuse for him to bump shoulders with NPCS though. :D

A former bandit? No. Someone who actually understood The Sword, Niten, Leadership, and Lies? Yes. Hence the final test :D

Oof. Gotta say, I didn't know what to expect at the end of the riddles, but being mocked by Scorpion is a heck of a twist.

Still, fairly setting appropriate?

Like the man said, she's a bit headstrong.

Maybe in Chapter 3 she'll be taught some humility :D

And I'm not sure how much of a twist it was. You did say early on (I believe, paraphrasing) "This seems like some bored Scorpion's game that I'd like to ruin."

But she's annoyed that her clever plan did not produce the results she wanted, so you succeeded in that sense.
