One day, a mysterious invite to a server showed up on her home page, an invite to server called "Daoist Discord" from a user by the name of "Transcendent Tourmaline Trapmaster".
Especially when they don’t bother to keep the size or taste to something reasonable.
I think I once got one that got contaminated a little by some fire-aligned herb because my mouth just kept on burning from it :p
At least it helped the effectiveness of the pill a little.
Of course you’d have a pill contaminated with something that made it better…
But of course! The light of Radiant Heart Topaz~! Shines throughout all her life!
bashful pouting noises
That’s what makes it funny, I suppose.
Of course, the other problem is that a lot of ingredients are alchemically active in a way that interferes with them following say, some nice diffusion pattern, and there’s still some use, if only in convenience of form factor and such, that make it worth it. I’ve done some experiments with adding non-toxic alchemical slag to the pill layers to insulate it and see what that does, but introducing impurities deliberately like that is pretty dubious, and I’d have to figure out some other insulator, sometime...

I remember hearing about senior Glacial Glaive’s cryogenic pill furnace having some sort of exotic ice technique involved that might replicate that sort of effect? I haven’t poked at that side of her skillset too much, but it’s not necessarily a problem without known solutions.
Good to know!
Though gosh still feeling hyper from that body bastion pill…

Okay. All these people were talking in a Discord server about cultivation — which she'd thought was an immersive roleplay group — with a pinned resource image that on viewing sent her on some kind of training vision (with a gorgeous inspiring elegant trustworthy charismatic instructor that vision-Hailey let touch her). Maybe this madness was real? Plan would still work, though, just even more realistically confused and "method" about the situation than she'd originally expected.
Hello! I'm not sure my invitation was intentional, but I'm glad to meet y'all. I am just about to start my path, and it seems like you have a lot of great resources and community here. After researching and then viewing the guide image about the Twenty-Four Flowing Fists, I'm currently inclined to start there.
Please don't worry, the invite was intentional - it's a little experiment that our lovely Senior Transcendnat Tourmaline Trapmaster dreamt up! Moonsilver accidentally ended up running here, and you read as having very...
Good omens to come join our little group!
What. They planned do invite her? As a total outsider? Omens!?
Well. Okay. Were omens really that much weirder than mindfuck vision images? No. No they really weren't.
I was not expecting omens about my arrival to become a part of my life. Love to hear more about these omens?
I'm not a specialist in them, but apparently you have - or will have, once you properly start, really pretty excellent luck for a cultivator, and a good edge for promoting the group's success, eventually!
I think she said it's the sort of luck one might get from a curse of 'may you live in interesting times'.
Could you tell me a bit more about what you'd like to know? I've practiced the technique and should be able to tell you most everything.
It seemed like a little much, to be honest, but there's always time for this sort of thing if you look, and finding new opportunities is just...
