    Finally, Telue makes it to her destination. The Dancing Fox Inn!
    Hmm.
    Doesn't really look like much, does it? Quaint, perhaps.

    She sets a smile on her face and heads inside, her levitating suitcase trailing behind. Now, to see about renting a room. She thinks she's probably never traveled so much in all her six decades of life. Although distance along the roads here, it wasn't clear just how long it had taken to get here from the city. Far too long, that's for certain.

    Oh. There's a literal dancing fox-person. That must be where the name comes from. And she had thought it was just one of those odd names these places have.

    That I'm afraid not. But many people around here do, so it's easy to buy magic items. A token like that will work for anyone that knows the command word. This one's fairly simple - it takes a message to a single person and returns with their reply.

    He takes the seat next to her.
    "So what're you doing 'round these parts?"

    Candace smiles. Not so much as you might think. There really are very many magic users here. Sometimes it's cheaper to find a way to make things by magic than otherwise. She pauses, looking at Kulpa. A lot of them aren't very powerful either - they do some minor spells but not a lot of big stuff.

    Ashley chuckles and shakes her head. "I don't know what kind of mirror the Spirit World would be holding up to ours if that were the case. No, it's its own plane of existence, with its own denizens. We conjurers form bonds with the spirits, through friendship or bargain, to borrow their power."

    "Well that sounds delightful! I'm afraid I can't help too much with that. I just got here myself, and am fairly unfamiliar with the area.

    "Hmmm. I see." Kin falls silent, thinking about what she just heard. "And does this allow for unique spells? It sounds like a unique way of gaining the power and using it, but are the tools that are brought along with it unique as well?" She sounds more curious than anything.

    "Well, I've been trying to make tools for a while now - stable ways to enter the spirit world, better conduits for the power, and such. But when it comes to spells, the biggest limits are how much power you can throw around, and your own imagination." Ashley shrugs.

    Right about then the pigeon comes back. Candace removes the paper and it turns back into stone. Looks like these coins are good, but it's best if we spend them sooner rather than later. We should head out shopping - you two need some new clothes.

    "In a manner." Kin admits with a bit of a shrug. "I can . . . well. I can just kinda make things warm." She blushes just a bit. Really, it doesn't seem anywhere near that interesting, or even worthy of bringing up in the light of the present conversation, but here she was, letting her mouth run away with her.

    "Oooooh no." Kin actually laughs a bit at that. Not really at any one, but . . . it's just such a silly thing to have to do. "Nah, for me, I just . . . kinda want something. Super limited, but just want it enough and bam.

    For example, I want a refill on my drink."
    The bartender, overhearing, comes over, reaches across the bar, and refills Kin's cup.
    "Boom. I am the best mage."

    Kin makes a bit of a sound. That 'gotcha' sorta tich. "Better move over. There's a new wizard in town." She manages to keep a straight face for several more seconds, before devolving into just pure, clear, happy sounding giggles. "Naaaah, please don't resign on my behalf. I can only be in so many places at once, and if people need a good mage, it'd be nice to be able to direct them your way, instead of having to do aaaalllll of it myself." Her tone is still fairly light, and for all her talk, she knows she's not a mage, and doesn't really strive to be one. But she's having fun talking with Ash, and doesn't want to lose the mood.

    Ashley laughs as well at that. "Yeah, I guess so. I might be a biiiit more powerful of a mage than you anyway," she says. She takes another pull of her drink, then shakes off the aftertaste. "Plus I don't have any hats to hang up."

    "Pffff. Pff. PFFFFFF.
    More powerful. Hah."
    Kin downs her drink in one go. "There are none more powerful than me!

    . . .

    Though you are very hot, so I suppose you can have this one~"
    Kin says with a . . . blink? Wink? Probably a wink, though only having one eye makes it more difficult to tell. "Hats are fun!"
