"It's been a while since I've seen a forge of this quality. This will work perfectly." He pulls out from his bag a pair of tongs and says "I'm not carrying any gemstones with me at the moment. Are you okay with a plain gold or silver amulet? It won't affect the performance, but it will look less fancy." He pulls out tongs and grabs the crucible he finds at the forge and drops some ingots in.

    The man stares at the furnace and watches the ingots melt into molten. Without turning, he says "I'm Hamund." He picks up the crucible with his tongs and pours the silver into the mold. When it begins to cool, he pulls a branding iron out of his bag, which has a circle shape. The circle bends into a strange shape by itself and, when placed in the center of the hot amulet, causes a bright yellow flash to come from it, leaving a glowing gold colored rune in the center. Hamund beats the amulet with his hammer until it has a perfect disc shape. "Here you go, when you put it on, it keeps you from experiencing extreme stress, anger, self hatred, and other feelings that come from your past. However, the amulet doesn't remove the feelings completely from you. If you wanted me to embed it into you it might, but that would be excruciatingly painful and possibly fatal. Be careful of taking it off if you feel an episode coming on." After cooling the amulet, Hamund puts it on a chain and hands it to Harold

    Tank shakes the hand offered to him. Cold metal on warm fur.

    "I do not know your exact situation, but I can empathize with confusion. Warforged spring into existence fully aged and ready for service. It is frightfully confusing being extremely knowledgeable about places and people you've never seen."

    Tank stares into the fire for a minute.

    "My people are what you would call an 'endangered' species. There aren't many of us left, and the magic that was used to create us, at least in my realm, has been lost. Ever since the City of Shard fell, Eberron has been a lawless place. I took the first chance to escape that realm that I could. That was nearly a quarter of a century ago."

    Tank turns back and smiles.

    "I'm here if you ever need someone to talk to."

    Thariza considers this. She can't really imagine what that must be like...

    "Doesn't sound right, to just spring it on people. Create them out of whole cloth, just to send them into battle later." She grew up properly into being a soldier, from a cub to a proper warband member. "I might take you up on that. For now I'll be leaving soon with this here scholar." She points at Ambrosia.

    Interesting fact about having a fey promise not to kill you, and then have it break it's promise...for better or worse I can't die.

    Harold lifts up the thing.

    But, while the offer to erase the hell in my head is appreciated, I have to finish this thing off on my own. Thanks, though, Hamund.

    "You're welcome. If you ever come across any heroes that need a blacksmith, don't hesitate to send them my way." says Hamund. He packs up his tools and begins to walk away.

    "The container we have for it," Ilpholin adds, miming out the approximate size of the faulty dragonscale glove so Nyneve knows roughly how much trouble this will be, "is failing and won't survive through the week's end."
    "I see." says Nyneve, voice dripping with amusement over Wenomir's directness. "Yes, I can destroy this corruption if you wish. Such is within my inclinations."

    Well, this kind of question wasn't too strange in the nexus... "It's a trading tool that has a global recognition. Imagine a simple piece of metal that everyone would want to trade with you, providing you have enough of it of course. It makes trade easier, and that in turn also make great to use as payment for services as well." She, like most of her kind, had a deep understanding of these things...

    Wenomir holds out the contained to Nyneve, holding it through the dragonscale glove. Let's hope she can indeed neutralize it, or at least contain it enough for them to keep it safe.

    Ilpholin watches skeptically, but quietly. If they didn't require a volcano for this, she would be generally disappointed, but reportedly dragon's breath is supposed to be hotter. Well regardless, she is in favor of attempting to destroy it in whatever fashion. If you never try, you'll never succeed. Can a dead god finally be put to rest?

    "Alright, now..." The scholar reaches into her satchel and pulls out a map over seaside which she puts on the table. "The village we're going to is located here, to get there simply take the boat from here or travel there by your own power. But I will recommend simply taking the boat, even if it costs money. Seaside can be a dangerous place."

    At another time than the expedition to Seaside, Thariza can be seen there, working. She seems to be making something small and delicate, and her features are screwed up in concentration.

    Thariza may get the sense that someone is watching her, or more precisely whatever she's working on. Which is true, as it happens.
    Although no one seems to be looking her way. At one of the other forges, a winged goblin is idly hammering some fasteners into place, but she seems absorbed by her work.

    Thariza raises her head, looking around. Her ears flick and her nose twitches. Was someone... she goes back to work, but she's on alert now, trying to get to the bottom of this feeling, even as she painstakingly shapes what looks like an amulet.

    The feeling is not constant. When she looks around, for example, it goes away. It's only when she focuses on the amulet that Thariza can sense anything unusual.
    Adventurers in need of new or repaired equipment go here and there, everything goes along as usual.

    Thariza decides that she's hardly in any danger in the Hearth, so she goes back to making her amulet. It's nothing very complicated, but she's not used to such precise work, so it's slow going. She'll ignore the feeling and keep working until it's done.

    A portal of red mist opens several feet above the ground and disgorges a single figure before disappearing again. The figure lands hard on the street, and lays there unmoving. He's dressed in a Roman legionaire's armor, with a gladius by his side. A heavy bow and quiver are slung over his shoulder. He lets out a groan, showing he's still alive, but doesn't get up.

    Someone runs to the injured warrior's side. A lizardman carrying a pack laden with gear as well as a battleaxe, shield, and arbalest bends down next to the legionairre. A pair of black goggles with green lenses are pushed up above his eyes. He extends a hand. "I heal you?"
