>"I'm here to see Patchouli again. How's the gate treating you?"

>"A few faeries tried to get through for who knows why," says Meiling. "Sent 'em packing." She moves to open the gate. "Head right on in."

>Head right on in.

>You head into the mansion, and into the library. Making your way through the web of bookshelves, you find Patchouli at her favorite table, in her favorite overstuffed chair, hastily scribbling something. Several colorful gems sit around her. "You're back," she says, not looking up.

// We should remember to tell Patchouli the insights on our conditions intuited by Suwako AND thatwe have good reason to believe Sakuya could help in someways  since... //

// 1.She resolved that " Incident of being Forcefully displaced in Gensokyo''s Future" and...  //

// 2. Yukari's Note, right after we requested her help regarding our Dimensional Displacement and bringing back Stargazer" which sent here on some business. //

>" It is; the blessing comes from Suwako Moriya ".

> Smiling: "It comes with the thanks of the Moriya Shrine, voiced by Sanae for your previous help to them, that one during the Sun Incident if I  recall correctly".

> " Sanae also extended an invitation to partecipate in their Majong Matches".

> Hand her over the Blessed Lily Pad when she requests it.,.

> Remember to make a mention about Sakuya before eventually leaving.

>The witch sets to work, which involves a lot of yelling at her familiar to bring her this or that piece of equipment or component. Slowly, a pile of weird things builds up on her desk. Tojiko makes her way toward a chair and has a seat.
>At one point, the familiar approaches you. "Would you like me to bring you something to read?" she says, bowing politely. She's putting on an act.

>She vanishes, as Patchouli works on arranging those gems from behind, the lily pad, and what looks like especially fine lines of ash into specific patterns. She returns with a thinnish book. "This should do." she says as she hands it to you.

>Take the book and examine it.

>You look over the book. You quickly find that it is western, and completely outside of your ability to read. But at the same time, you don't need to. It is lushly illustrated with dozens of drawings, filled with western-style ships you've only seen in the odd painting around here. Their hulls are different, their masts and sails follow a very different form of design, their use of rigging is different. But looking at these drawings, you can understand how they work and how they are designed. You can probably replicate them. Almost surely if you had these designs with you.
>Tojiko asks for her own book, and receives a much thicker volume, which she idly pages through."
>During this time, Patchouli works, spreading out some vile-smelling liquids, and some powders. Then she begins to chant, and the entire mass seems to ignite at once, going up in a flash of flame that barely lasts a second! "It is done," she says.

>You approach the table.
>What she's done is made a mess. An acrid stench lingers in the air, ash that is much less fine litters everything on the table. The gems she set out are horribly stained. The equipment she set up is burnt on the metal bits, while the glassware is yellowed and opaque. She picks up one of the gems, a purple one about the size of her palm, and offers it to you.
>"I expect you'll need me to explain how it works," she says.
