# Returner Program

The returner program, which underwent a major revision in the October 2022 major version update, confers various bonuses to attorneys who meet the following conditions:

• Account level 10 or higher
• Have cleared Main Story 01-13
• Have not logged into the game for 45 days or more
• Have not activated the returner system for 60 days or more.

## Returner Mail

Upon the player's first login after the required time away, a mail from DAVIS will be received containing a welcome back notice.

To [Player]

Welcome back. DAVIS has recorded everything about you here:
On [start date], you became an attorney.
Since you left Stellis, [time away] days and nights have passed.
When you were away, the NXX members have continuously protected Stellis.
The only thing that has changed is their ever-growing longing for you.
DAVIS knows that some of them can barely hold themselves anymore
DAVIS has prepared some gifts for you. Remember to check it out!

-DAVIS, who misses you as well

Attached to the mail will be several gifts from DAVIS:

After reading this mail, players will be able to select a male lead to hear a special welcome back interaction. Players wishing to re-read this story, or read greetings from other male leads, may select them at the bottom of the "Reunion Memory" portion of the returner UI.

Luke
Residential Area Entrance
Main Character's Residence
Residential Area Entrance

You: Stellis, I'm back!

Walking home with your suitcase in hand, your heart leaps in joy. The familiar environment freshens you up from travel tiredness.

You: (I should give Luke a call first! He must be very worried after so long without contact.)

You: (Good thing the closed training camp's over! We can now return to life as per usual...)

Just as you arrive at your apartment building, you see a familiar figure standing there...

You: Luke!!

He freezes a few seconds, then walks up to you quickly.

Luke: [Player], you're back...

You: What a coincidence, I just wanted to call you.

Luke: I missed you, so... I came here to check it out.

Luke: I can't believe that you're really back!

Luke: How was your training? Was it tough? I've got to give you some real treat.

You: Did you... come here often these days...?

Luke: Sure...

Luke: I've made a habit of coming to your apartment building every day...

Luke: When I went for a morning run, when I went out on investigation, or when I accepted a job from the neighborhood.

Luke: I don't know why I was doing this. Maybe I just wanted to see with my own eyes...

He speaks in a casual and relaxed tone, but you can see how hard he's trying to conceal his emotions.

You: Sorry...

You: I didn't know the training would take this long. I should've called and let you know about it...

Luke: No, I didn't mean to blame you.

Luke: I just thought that during the time I was away... you must've felt the same way I do now...

Luke: It hurts me to think of that...

You: It's all in the past. You're here now, and I'm back, aren't I?

Luke: Yeah, and when I think that you were doing this to become your better self, these feelings I've had don't matter anymore.

Luke: I won't say things like "don't you ever leave again"...

Luke: You're earnest, persistent, and won't give up on the things you've decided. This is exactly the girl I've been fond of.

Luke: I just want you to know that no matter where you go, and how long you're away, I will always be right here when you come back.

Luke: Welcome back, [Player]!

Luke's smile is like warm sunshine, shining into your heart, making it beat even faster.

You: I'm back, Luke.

Artem
Artem's Office
Themis Law Firm
Artem's Office

Somehow, you make your way into the law firm and step into Artem's office.

The interior furnishings are still familiar, and everything here... looks exactly the same as it was before you left.

You: (Artem's office is still the same as it was. I've left for quite some time, but it doesn't seem that long...)

Not long ago, you went to a closed training camp. You packed and left in a hurry after leaving a message for Artem.

No cell phones were allowed during the training, so you couldn't get in touch with him ever since...

You: (It was like military training. I wonder if Artem ever needed me for any urgent matters during the time I was away...)

Artem: [Player]! You're... back?

As your thoughts wander off, Artem's voice comes from behind.

You: Artem, what... what are you here? Are you working overtime?

Artem: No, I'm just staying to organize some stuff.

Artem: While you've been away, I have nothing to do after work, so... Ahem...

You: !!!

Artem: I mean, you must be very tired. Don't you want to go home and rest?

You: Not at all! I feel so much better after seeing you here!

You: Do you need my help with this? Two hands are always faster than one.

Artem: ...

Artem gives you a faint smile and reluctantly accepts your offer.

You work together and quickly get all the documents neatly filed away.

You: I feel like... we haven't been like this in a while.

Artem pauses slightly and puts down his hand that was about to close the file.

Artem: ...It's been really a long time since we were last alone together.

Artem: How... was your time in the training camp...?

Something in your heart stirs from the tenderness and affection in his tone.

You: I was all right. And you? Did you take good care of yourself?

Artem: I've been doing well too.

The corners of his mouth rise into a distinct smile.

Artem: I can't say I was not without worry when I saw your message.

Artem: I even wanted to ask Celestine why she would let you go alone to the closed training camp for such a long time.

Artem: I was worried about whether you were doing well, whether you would be tired from training, whether you would get sick from all of it, and...

He pauses mid-sentence.

Artem: I was also afraid that you might get in danger...

You: !!!

Artem: Isn't it foolish for me to be having these irrational thoughts?

You: It's not foolish at all. You were just worried about me... I understand.

Artem: Well, I have never doubted your ability. I know you are capable and can handle a lot of things by yourself.

Artem: But despite this, I still want to be by your side. Perhaps this is how it feels when you miss someone.

Artem: I missed you a lot. Welcome back, [Player].

You: Yes. I'm back, Artem.

Vyn
Outside Vyn's Residence
Vyn's Residence
Outside Vyn's Residence

You return to Stellis after a period of training in the closed training camp.

Subconsciously thinking of Vyn, you find yourself heading towards his house.

You: (I'm not quite sure how I got here, but I don't think Vyn's home at this time...)

Vyn: [Player], you are back.

Suddenly, a familiar voice calls out to you. You turn around to see Vyn. He's dressed as usual, looking at you with a smile.

You: Vyn, you're home... but why are you just standing there?

Vyn: I was waiting for you.

You: Waiting for me?

Vyn: Indeed. For some reason, this garden has been oddly quiet during the time you were away.

Vyn: The wind, flowers, birdsong... all the sounds that I am familiar with have disappeared.

Vyn: Life is peaceful but a little lonely.

Vyn: But, just now...

You: Just now?

Your interest is piqued, but he just looks at you, his clear eyes conveying some deep emotion that makes your heart leap.

Vyn: Just now, I seem to have heard the chirping of the birds again. They seemed to be urging me to open the door.

Vyn: And I was brought to the sight of you.

You: Vyn...

You rarely hear Vyn revealing his emotions this bluntly. He seems to miss you much more than you thought after a long time of separation.

You walk up and give him a tight hug.

You: Vyn, I'm back.

Vyn: I am glad you are back.

Vyn wraps his arms around you and presses your head to his chest.

As you are drawn into his embrace, you feel the thump of his heartbeat.

Vyn: [Player], do you hear it?

You: Hear... the sound of your heartbeat?

Vyn: Yes. What else do you hear?

You: And...

Vyn continues before you can think of an answer.

Vyn: And... the frequency of its beating says that it misses you very much.

Vyn: It is happy to see you again.

You: Me too...

You are about to say something, when Vyn puts his index finger against your lips.

Vyn: Do not say anything first. My heart has a lot to say to you after such a long time.

Vyn: Would you... like to listen first?

You: Of course.

You close your eyes and indulge yourself in Vyn's embrace.

You suddenly wish for time to stop here forever.

Marius
Studio
Marius' Studio
Studio

After the closed training camp has ended, you come directly to Marius' studio.

You haven't seen him for a while, but Marius still looks the same as you remember. The sunlight falls on the side of his face, outlining his handsome jawline.

The only thing that's different seems to be his eyes, which instantly overflows with longing at sight of you.

Marius: Miss, you're back.

Marius puts down the brush in his hand and quickly walks up to you.

He holds your hand, looking relieved.

Marius: Phew, not a hallucination...

You: Hallucination?

Marius: Well, I thought about you every day while you were away.

Marius: Sometimes, my phone would ring and I'd think it was a message from you, except it was never from you.

Marius: But I'm glad that you're back.

You: Sorry. I'm really sorry.

A wave of guilt washes over you after hearing what Marius said.

You stand on your tiptoes and give him a comforting hug.

You: It was closed training, so I couldn't make contact with the outside. I didn't mean to do this to you. I promise this won't happen again.

Marius: Apology accepted.

Marius laughs lightly and presses you against his body. After a long while, you separate from each other, short of breath.

Marius: Speaking of which, was the training hard?

Marius: I just hugged you and I feel as if you've lost weight.

You: Lost weight?

Marius: Yeah, you look pale too. Is the food there bad?

Marius scrutinizes your face and frowns slightly.

Marius: Wait a sec, I'll have someone arrange lunch for you right now.

You: Hold on, there's no need to do that.

You hurriedly stop Marius from making a call.

You: I'm just tired from the trip. A little rest will help. Besides, I want to stay with you for a bit longer.

You rub against Marius' ear, which turns a faint pink.

Marius freezes but figures it out quickly, pulling you down to a couch.

Marius: Rest for a while. I'll keep you company.

Marius: It'll be just the two of us here.

Marius: You can rest as long as you want.

Marius' voice is soft and his words free you from physical fatigue as quickly as magic.

The warm sun shines on you through the glass, making you feel drowsy. Dazed, you seem to hear someone whispering in your ear.

Marius: Don't ever leave me for so long again, Miss.

Marius: I... I'm really gonna miss you.

You: Sure...

## Reunion at Stellis: MR Selection

Players may select one MR-rarity card from among the following to pursue:

After selecting the desired target card, an MR "Bingo" minigame will be available until the end of the returner period. Players will use Return Postage, which can only be obtained from certain packs exclusively available for purchase by returners, to flip random tiles on the board. If a player does not have Return Postage and does not wish to purchase any from the mall, S-Chips may be also be used at an exchange rate of 1:1.

Upon completion of a "line" on the bingo board, the line prize shown on the bottom or side will be obtained. After flipping all 25 tiles, the desired card will be obtained.

Players may select one limited Year 1 SSR from the table below. After selecting the desired target card, a Shadow of Themis will be available under the "Visions" tab of the homescreen targeting this card. Draws on this Shadow of Themis consume Tears of Themis and reward Trace of Tears - Reunion x1 per draw. The player is guaranteed to receive the target card within 100 draws, but in addition to the target card, the gacha pool will be populated by the two other permanent SSRs for the same male lead as follows:

## Reward Comparison

The lucrative spread of rewards described here may lead a long-term player to wonder whether it's worthwhile to step away from the game from time to time to take advantage of the Returner Program, so it's worth taking some space to compare the Returner Program to continuous play to help players make this decision.

The main draws in the revamped returner program are the chance to obtain several past limited cards, including the Love in the Air Event MR cards and the Year 1 limited SSRs. However, it should be noted that the returner program now requires significantly more time to activate -- 45 days as opposed to the previous 15 days -- and that all limited card rewards require spending S-Chips or real money to obtain. It's also worth noting that we will likely see future reruns of these items for all players. While we can't guarantee global servers will get the same events as others did, no card has been left unattainable forever in CN/TW servers.

In the meantime, during the 45 days a player waits offline in order to trigger the program, it's extremely likely that 1-2 major events with their own limited cards, as well as multiple minor events with badges, namecards, and other permanently missable rewards.

While we should embrace the Returner Program and the returning attorneys who make use of it, the rewards only help to close the gap between those who take a break and those who play continuously, and it's unlikely to be worthwhile to intentionally take breaks to trigger the Returner Program.
