You try to reflect on what you know about Archmage Neid. ...Unfortunately, that's not much. You've heard that archmages were supposed to be pretty powerful, but that's about the extent of your knowledge on the matter.

As you begin to approach the fountain, you introduce yourself, and tell the fairies you mean no harm. They start to quiet down as you talk, most of them wanting to hear what you have to say.

You begin to explain the situation--that you're just trying to stop the goblins and the slimes from fighting, even if that means meeting some... questionable demands from the goblin tribe. You also want to put an end to all the monstrous mushrooms attacking in the forest.

"A heck of a story," one fairy says.

"Yup, yup, that's pretty crazy," says another.

"We do have one question, though," a fairy states.

"Just a teeny weeny question."

"A little bitty one."

"We couldn't help notice that you're the same height as the last human that came up here."

"About as skinny, too," adds another fairy.

"In fact... you sound just like him."

"You have the same voice and body as the human that stole our panties!"

"The pervert!"

"The creepo!"

"I bet you look just like him under all that face covering!"

"Of course he does! It's the same guy, trying to trick us again!"

"Do you know how hard it is to get underwear in our size?!"


The fairies begin coalescing, pulling together and grabbing onto each other. They take the shape of a... well, a substantially larger fairy. They all speak in unison, forming a single voice combined of a multitude of smaller voices.

"You thought you could just come in here and embarrass us AGAIN?! You won't get away this time!"

The giant fairy begins to build something at her fingertips--energy drawing in from the air, crackling and intertwining. It seems as though a bunch of fairies working together are much more powerful than fairies isolated, and this jumbo-sized fairy is preparing an attack.

That's why all disguise potions get stolen. The real pantythief uses one everytime before he goes on tour. The Alchemist said the disguise is always the same every time and unfortunately this guy looks exactly like us when he uses it. I guess he needs so much because he has some kind of countermeasure, the disguise lasts normally for 24 hours, way to long so he disguises himself, steal, flees and immediately turns back.

He could also be our twin, though it's probably the disguise potion.

Yeah definitely say that he was probably using a disguise potion. And given that they always are getting stolen it could very well be the panty thief. The thief is in fact extremely skilled so he could easily just steal all the disguise potions he can.

take off your scarf and mask to try and convince them you're a different person? unless nast does look exactly like the thief, in which case, better run. run run run.

1+ this, there's a good chance he doesn't look exactly like us. And if he does, well at least we'll know.

Do a downward/upward slash whith the wind-wand hoping that it will crate a barrier, or at the very least render some fairies unconcious (because nest held the wand wrrong)

Call the fairies on their racism. No, not all humans look the same, that's like saying all fairies look the same.

Duck inside the door and explain that the panty thief is your enemy as well. His shenanigans have had you arrested, and try to figure out if they know where he went or have any kind of lead on him.

Yep, yep, explain situation and ask if it would be possible to help us track Mr.Panty-thief. As well as help with the goblin-slime situation.

demonstrate the use of a disguise potions and try to convince them that you didn't do it, similar to how they acted as the statue.
