The following ad is posted in jobs on stcanard.craneslist.org and monster.com for the Duckburg area. Anyone may reply:

 

Want to visit another country and see the sites? Love exploring and taking in new cultures? Only work one day and have all expenses paid and salary for seven days? Get paid even if the objective fails? If it succeeds take home as much treasure you can fit in a 9 inches x 14 inches x 22 inches carry on suitcase? Then we have a job for you!

 

Come see Venice, Italy! For the first four days feel free to explore the beautiful city and all it has to offer. Hotel stay, all meals, and tourist fees paid!  For the fifth day we’ll we’ll go do the task at hand. Then the sixth and seventh day are left to unwind and get ready for the trip back home.

 

These are the job positions that must be filled for the trip:

 

(Semi) Experienced Explorer

Someone who has done exploring of ancient areas before. At least three prior explorations. Knows when its it's safe to touch things and not when to touch things. Spotting booby traps.

 

Projectile Specialist

Someone proficient in non-modern projectile weaponry. Anything like spears, knives, boomerangs, arrows, slingshots, ninja stars, or whatever. If you can throw/shoot it far and do it well that's what we’re looking for.

 

A Psychologist of Some Form

Someone with a background in psychology. Does not have to have a doctorate but must sound like they know what they are doing. Be very kind to people, especially children. Must be good at pretending they belong. Will not be a part of any combat. Just a distraction.

 

Bodyguard Type (Does not have to be buff)

To accompany the psychology type that is hired. Pretend to be an assistant. Should be no combat. More or less just keeping track of time. Watch provided.

 

Muscle (or Magic?) that /might/ see Combat

I mean in case something is down there but  it is highly unlikely. One or two fighters would be great. Just in case. No hate to magic users just have to be more picky that their type of magic might counteract with other things going on. Physical fighters are fine too.

          There are some ancient ruins no one else knows about that I have access to. Long story short; I studied to be a ‘Disciple of Alexandria’ back in the day and recently got assigned a mission to retrieve a lost intellectual property that is in these ruins. There is monetary treasure as well but my clients are not interested in that. It leaves that to just be a bonus for anyone on the team with me.

          Disciples of Alexandria are a good aligned faction so this is technically a good thing to be doing. Also the land it’s on is in legal limbo so we’re not breaking and entering. I've been there several times to do some purifying rituals to make sure everything runs smoothly.

          Right now I have to look over other applications but will be happy to interview you. As of right now your skill could be helpful for the bodyguard or the extra muscle.

           

          Look forward to hearing from you soon,

          I am usually very supportive of villains wanting to do slightly heroic things even though its it's just for the money. However, the area in question for this job is very sensitive and has several layers of centuries of things going wrong supernaturally in the area.

          These layers have also shown to be highly aggressive to anything the spirits perceive as bad. I'm concerned any dark arts or villain types might be torn apart by it as soon as they set foot there. This job has to be a little more stealthy this time.

          It's great that you've shown an interest in this job. I'll hold onto your e-mail addie if there is ever other jobs in the future where your skills would be great for. I actually may still want to do an interview for this job depending on what the other applications look like, though I would have to find a way for you to be safe if that's the case. I’ll follow up with you about that if need be.

           

          Thank you.

              Dear Sir or Madam,

              I was most intrigued by your ad on Crane's List.  I have years of experience in leading teams through dangerous territories as well as educating others on the pitfalls of ruins.  One of my two college degrees is in biochemistry, for manufacturing biochemical weapons, however I am also quite handy with technology and mechanical engineering.  I believe I would be suited for your explorer position, if that is still available.

              Humbly,

                Would Thursday at 6 PM at the Starducks right outside the History Museum work? I'll be the duck with black hair on the patio area with a mint green jacket. If that time and day doesn't work let me know asap.

                Thank you,

                The skills you have listed sound like a great asset for this mission. The area we will be adventuring into may have ancient traps still active along with more modern setups put up by more recent scavengers trying to be ‘cute.’ The area is abandoned and been disputed for decades so it is not technically trespassing.

                 

                However, this also means its it's not going to be some nice pristine ‘Calisota Jones’ adventure. Areas have been vandalized and are just a mess. I've visited there several times to prep the surface so it will be easier at least there. I also have x-ray pictures of some of the traps below so we have some idea what is going on.

                 

                What would be a good day and time for an interview? With your qualifications you sound like a busy person. Let me know what fits your schedule and I can give a good place to meet

                    I can make myself available to you whenever you wish.  My preference for meeting place would be the Quetzal Club.

                      Friday at 6 PM will be fine at that location. Let me know if that time and date is fine with you. If it is I’ll be the duck with short black hair in a light blue dress with a light blue and navy striped belt.

                                An email was sent from Dr. Mallard unaware of what he might be possibly getting into.

                                Dear Sir or Madam,

                                I am responding to your listing about needing a psychologist. I currently are employed at SHUSH Central as a clinical psychologist and could possibly help. I have a Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) and many years of experience in the field.

                                I can send my credentials if needed.


                                Sincerely, Dr. Drake Mallard, SHUSH Clinical Psychologist

                                  Dr. Mallard,

                                  Thank you for your interest. We'd love to have a highly qualified psychologist on our team. It will definitely make things run smoothly. If you are interested in this mission we would need you to tour a mental health facility with one other member of our team. There is someone at the facility that would expect a visit from a doctor from a different facility so it will not be a problem.

                                   

                                  I would like to see your credentials if you want to share that. Also, this may seem off topic, but what are your beliefs in ghosts?

                                   

                                  Thank you for your interest,

                                  Gemma Esposito

                                    I can bring my credentials along when I come for the tour or can mail them to you. Just let me know the address.

                                    Ghosts? I believe there's some sort of an after life and spirits.

                                      I can also give you a mailing address for mailing a copy of your credentials.
