    "Are you Mr. Voidstone?" Harnel asks politely, "My name is Harnel Mithar, and I'm planning an expedition into Arcadia. I'm told you're an expert on the fey."

    "I'm just accompanying him." Methil says with a wave.

    "Yes, you have found him." The old man replies with a smile. "An expedition? How interesting! Come on in!" He says, waving them inside. "No one have ever attempted such a thing before this point so it would be an historical event!" Inside it's actually better cleaned, the floors are dirty but the clothes and shoes in the hall are all arranged neatly.

    Same goes for the many stacks of papers on the table in the middle of the vestibule they now enter.

    "Well, the winter fey stole something from a friend of mine. I plan to be the heroic type and snatch it back, but I need to know what I'm dealing with before I can." Harnel says, stepping inside. He looks curiously at the papers, looking at what they're for, but doesn't disturb anything.

    It appears to be the manuscript for a very long book judging by the pages.
    Mr. Voidstone chuckles, "The fey loves that kind of things, it's suits their dramatic mindset see?" He declares while sitting down at his desk. "They idolize us really, especially the winter fey. We fill their eternal lives with entertainment for quite a while. So my guess your heroic expedition would be seen as high class entertainment for them."

    Methil stands in the back, listening curiously to the scholars exposition.

    "I met a being that was obsessed with storytelling before, by the name of Genesis. I think she was a fey as well, and was pretty obsessed with having a good narrative when we fought one another," That had been quite an odd fight, and not really something Harnel wanted to experience again. Thankfully, a new form of Genesis had been made, so that wasn't likely.

    "Oh? Outside Arcadia that is? Must have been one of the summer fey." He says with an thoughtful expression. "But yes, fey care very much about narrative as they are natives of the dream world Arcadia. But just as a dream these narratives can quickly change in an instant. Heroic fantasies can quickly turn into chilling horror. It's this fickle attitude and their disregard for everything we could call morality that makes them so dangerous."

    Harnel scratches his chin, "And what if I were to be a funny guy hellbent on getting something precious for a woman back? Seems like a heroic epic to me."

    "Oh yes, as I said, they would love that. The problem is that the 'winter fey' rarely want to lose their toys, which is pretty much how they view mortals." He explains. "Which is why they lure mortals into their realm or kidnap them with the use of fetches which is a form of construct."

    "So in the end, it depends on me keeping them entertained long enough to fool them into thinking they have me in their clutches, and then find an opening to escape into. I don't have a way into Arcadia though."
    Harnel frowns.

    "Only a fey could take you there I'm afraid. Thankfully most of what I have learned in my research have come from interviews with fey so I could direct you to one if you want. I'd suggest caution though, within Arcadia the fey's powers are nearly limitless. They are only really limited by their own rules which they have set for themselves." Mr. Voidstone explains. "I haven't confirmed anyone actually returning from there besides from such sources as fairy tales and the like." He says with a shake of his head.

    "Could we enlist the help of the summer fey, then?" Harnel asks, imagining the difference in names of their courts would lead to animosity between them it made narrative sense, after all.

    "Yes... thought I think you first need to understand the difference between the 'courts' which is just another name taken from fairy tales I'm afraid. The fey don't have courts like we Hestopians do. It's just what we have projected at them." The old scholar says with a frown. "Childish fantasies really. No, according the summer fey I have talked to, they partook in a great war against their creators in exchange for physical bodies. The winter fey on the other hand didn't care for physical bodies. They rather wanted to stay in Arcadia and entertain themselves by taking physical bodies there instead of the other way around. Therefore they were neutral in the war." He explains slowly. "These two factions eventually become the two 'courts' which is a horrible misnomer. The fey aren't organized at all, they have no real hierarchy such as nobles and commoners even if a great deal of the fey apparently fancies themselves such titles. It's just the kind of impression they want to give really."

    "Genesis, the fey I spoke of, called herself the Queen of Rings. The tower she owned... well, it was much larger on the inside than the outside. For example, an open field with a single large tree on one of the floors was present in the tower. It even had a sky. I've never actually heard of her having left the tower though."

    "Curious, where exactly did you met this Genesis?" Hallim asks with an raised eyebrow.

    Methil shakes his head slightly as he hears the question. The nexus was still hush, hush around here.

    "You know that Zeppelin tower they built off to the North?" Harnel says, "Genesis' tower was a ways past it, in a place called Riverside, creatively enough. Fancied herself the queen of the city."

    "I'm afraid I haven't heard about it, nor have I heard about this city of yours." The old scholar replies thoughtfully as he strokes his beard. "It sounds like something I should be aware of however. In what country is it located?" Mr. Voidstone asks with a curious look at Harnel.

    "As a matter of fact, it's a City state about a week's travel by zeppelin to the north, followed by about half a day's travel to the west," Harnel states noncommittally, "It's rather close to where Cessie and I made our home. Anyways, about the different fey; you believe there's some that would help me into Arcadia?"

    "Cessie...? Oh yes! You must be that husband of hers! Why didn't you say so earlier? Have a seat!" The scholar exclaims. "She have been so secretive lately, heard all sorts of strange rumors circling around about her. But perhaps I can get some answers out of you?" He chuckles. "Harnel isn't it? I believe that was your name." He appears to have forgot about Harnel's question for the time being.

    Methil on the other hand sigh and shakes his head.

    The scholar frowns, "Fine, keep your secrets. I will figure it out eventually anyway. In any case, no fey live in Hestopia. There are wards for that, and there aren't many human communities that are friendly towards fey so mainly they live outdoors. The ones I talked to came from various grooves, the closest one being at the foot of summerset mountain."

    "These particular fey are actually rather friendly, they just have a hard time sitting down and talk about these sort of things. Very carefree if you get my meaning." Voidstone explains. "Their shape is familiar to the ones of human too, another sign of their fascination with us. These particular fey aren't so fascinated by ,ahem, clothes however, or well, any coverage at all."

    "Wear sturdy clothes if you're planning to go there today, it's a rough trip. No real roads out there as the fey avoid mortals in fear of persecution. I'm only sharing with you their location since I know your wife." Voidstone explains.

    "And don't believe I don't appreciate it," Harnel says, "Cessie is coming to the City in about a week anyways. You'll have a chance to speak with her directly at that point."

    "Wonderful, perhaps she will finally stop being so secretive all the time then." The scholar replies.

    And yes, the location can be hand waved. We can probably skip forward to the point where they leave the manor and Harnel plans to set off to Summerset.
