OOC: Here's a little list of things I'd like to do today. I'm writing it down here so anyone else following can help me keep track of it all.
- #1 goal: go find that dancing plant we need to mask the mana battery and finish it today, now that Saber's on the prowl.
- Talk to Sister Gibson and let her know Georgia's command seals went away on their own. (We probably don't need to worry about her leaking this to Lancer.)
- Talk to Michael Collins and see if he can clarify Explorer's story or give us any other leads on this moon business.
- Get a notebook while we're in town so we can work out our magic bullshit without having to draw it in the dirt. Also acquire munchies.

Optional:
- Have Archer get a look at Saber so we can work on IDing him.
- Case the area for rich assholes to rob so we can replace Misty's bike.
- Look into acquiring another catalyst - this would give us a starting point for looking further into the whole "summoning a second servant" business.
- Attempt to win Kimimela's heart.
- What the fuck are we going to do about Assassin?

With that laid out!

> How can we go about looking for a Dancing Plant? Do we know any divinations or such that could point us towards one?

I have a bizarre feeling that Saber is going to turn out to be Dwight Eisenhower. I have no idea why I think this, I just do.

For something actually helpful, remember that you're in Delaware, the land of LLCs. You can't throw a rock five feet without hitting a rich asshole.

>As far as finding one, your best bet is probably your phone, whether it is searching the net or calling various locales that deal in or keep plants. As for obtaining one...that may depend on how questionably legal you are willing to be.

>You do not find any easy hits. In fact, it turns out to be kind of a difficult thing to google. There's all kinds of sites that talk about the plant in general, but precious little information on where you can see one. You are contemplating giving up when you find pictures of one on delaware resident's instagram that an image search turns up, and a mention about it being at the University of Delaware.
>As you search, you notice that Archer seems to have found a collection of fairly long and slender saplings, which she has split in half, and has become begun to kind of lace together. The sun is just about to rise now.
