    Igni fixes the new face with his finest smirk, and of course, offers a maximum-integrity handshake.

    "Hi there Nirah, did I hear that right? Nirah? Glad you could join us. Name's Igni, Igni Fuhrersson, Master Wizard, charmed."

    "Is a fire spirit the kind of problem you solve with an axe, or with a hammer?"
    "Like every problem, Crall, we're going to solve it with information." I rub my hands together eagerly (while simultaneously maintaining the proffered handshake, how's that strike you?). "I need to know more before venturing a professional opinion. Who runs that district? Why haven't they made a lot of noise if this creature has been rampaging? Is no one losing any money from lost time? I doubt, further, that the people who live and work there see this as a holiday. Why aren't they up in arms over the inability of whomever's in charge to fix this? Regarding the spirit itself~"

    Now that he's not talking about money, Igni hesitates. Who wants to venture an insight roll against deception (1d20+5)[6] to call him on the following horse crap?

    "Uh, we need to know what kind of spirit it is. Is it infernal, terrestrial, sabbatical? Maybe, yes, maybe a minor elemental has developed a revolutionary mindset and broken free of the repressive enslavement of the forge fires. Point is, we don't know, and we can't find out from here." So, I finish with a flourish, "I propose we go find it, and look at it from the safest distance we can muster. It might be we don't need a hammer or an axe, but a wet blanket."

    Zemzelett is happy to oblige royalty, and even tries to assist by drawing upon the snippets of rumor and tall tales he heard as a Bard.

    While there is a clear magical aura about the bag, nothing else can be determined. You were able to open the bag however and find yourself looking at 6 beans that seem to roll around on their own, regardless of how the bag is tilted.
    You can call me Sivarias or Siv.

    Message me some time, I'd love to hear your story, and if you want, I can even tell you mine.

    A glimmer of the boy Zem once was (a lifetime ago) faded as the examination of the rattling bag only yielded six strange beans. The disappointment is writ large on the half-elf's face, as he contemplates whether the beans are at least edible.

    "Um, I guess we can each have a bean?" Zem avers, as he gives the elf, three humans, and the half-orc one bean each.

    "That wet blanket suggestion is an excellent one, Igni. We should probably all make sure our water skins are filled before we set off, in case we need to pull something like that in the field."

    After Zemzelett divides the beans, Amerah remembers he other items looted from last night's excursion.

    "We should probably also distribute those arrows before we head out. You never know what caliber of gear we might need to kill that fire thing. I think that Alwyn, Nirah, and myself are the only ones to use bows? We should each take 3. Crall should perhaps take the extra, in case he needs to stab things with it when his other weapons aren't working."

    Although Amerah generally preferred to steer clear of doing magic herself, experience with Nirah and the stories swapped by guild members had taught her that it was sometimes the best or only effective solution to a problem, and having a little bit on your side never hurt.

    "Does that seem agreeable to everyone?"

    I may tend to come across as negative, as I usually post when something is wrong or to winge, but I really like this game so far and I'm having loads of fun. Thank you everyone for making it such a great experience!

    Igni looks at the bean and bounces it in his hand.

    "Not much of a meal, this. I hope Amerah is in charge of the rations on this venture and not you, Zem." Then I hand it back. "Hang on to this for me, Mr. Gemblossom; I'm liable to put it down somewhere and forget about it or absentmindedly eat it."

    "Well met master wizard, I sure hope it's not a sabbatical spirit. That would just be terrible" Nirah said as she smiled a sweet, but sly, smile and accepted the handshake.

    "Hope you stick around long enough to give these items a serious inspection." She added as she wrapped up her work.

    She scribbled some notes on a parchment, and left it on the table with the items. Then she got up and walked to her room, but left her door open so she could continue hearing the crews discussions.

    Amongst some decorations was a hook that had a fine looking scabbard hanging from it. It held a rapier, and Nirah proceeded to buckle the weapon around her waist. Beside her hammock was a small dressoir, with a bowl of water on it. She dipped both hands in it and splashed some in her face, then dried her hands in her hair as she tied it into a tight ponytail.
    The cloak and gloves followed her into the room, obediently awaiting instructions. Nirah told it a sentence or two and it walked off towards the communal bathroom.

    As she walked out of her room she grabbed a short bow and a quiver with arrows by the door. She joined the group just as Amerah finished her proposal of the arrows.

    "Sounds good to me. But I'll take two and you take four." She said to Amerah. Nirah knew Amerah could fire off these things twice as fast as her, even though she'd never admit to it to her face.

    "You can use the extra ammunition trying to hit things out there." She said dryly.

    "And try not to accidentally shoot the team wizard again." She said as she walked towards the door.

    Just then the unseen servant came out carrying a barrel of water, and joined her. "I have about 45 minutes left with this guy." She indicated the servant with a nod. "So are you all ready to head out?"

    As you trek through the city to the District of Clay, you tense up as you leave the District of Guilds, the unspoken protection of home leaving you behind. With the early morning sun having now given way to pre-noon day, you would expect to see more hustle and bustle.It’s eerily silent however. What’s more concerning is you aren’t accosted even once while on your way. There are a few people hurrying about, along with the occasional person skulking in the shadows, however the Brass District seems unusually subdued. The moans and groans of the undead can be heard occasionally from open manholes and what - you hope - are unoccupied houses.

    After a half hour’s jaunt the telltale signs of the District of Clay lie before you. Soot raining from the sky from great furnaces that never sleep in the center of their massive warehouses. A thin layer soon covers your skin, painting everything grey and white. This District seems alive at least, but the signs of fear are everywhere: people only traveling in packs, quick furtive glances over shoulders, the occasional jump and scream as a billow of fire snakes from the top of a warehouse.

    The homes themselves sit in between the massive building, small and hunched like their owner. In the distance, you can see the great river Enduin making it’s way through the brass district. The bed home to various river life, as well as the clay that gave the district it’s name.

    A small girl dashes out of an alley, a friend or sister trying and failing to snatch her up before she gets too far away, a look of concern on her face.

    I’m Lily, have you come to help me find my cat?

    Her eyes shown with the hope of the youthful, she clutched at Igni’s pants, the halfling girl’s head just barely clearing his knee

    Zemzelett crouched down so he is eye-level with the girl. With a slight smile on his face, he says, "Tell you what, Lily. Why don't you tell me what Ashes looks like, and the place you saw her last? If we find her, I'll bring her back to you right away, okay?"

    Crall

    Crall strikes an imposing figure as he moves through the Clay district. Two handaxes hang from his right hip, and a massive greataxe swings freely at his left. He casually rests a seven-foot long glaive on his shoulder, the top sheathed in soft leather.

    As the small halfling girl dashes up to the group, I look around for her parents. Noticing her older friend/sister staring out of the alleyway, I walk over, doing my best to appear nonthreatening. "Hello there. Don't worry about your friend- those people might look scary, but they're fine."

    I lean against the wall, a few feet away from the girl. "But while your friend is busy, I have a question. There's a fire... thing. It's somewhere around here. It's hurting people. Can you tell me about it? How big is it, and where did it come from?"

    Amused, Nirah stood back and watched as Igni, Zem and Crall handled the children.

    As you get closer, you realize that she's older, but not by much. The difference in size was due to racial differences more than anything. The human before you stares up at you with the haughty teenage glare of every pre-teen and teenage girl everywhere.

    "Well that's the problem isn't it? No one has caught a good glimpse of it. Everyone only ever sees the scorch marks it leaves behind. Some idiots think its just a mephit playing tricks, but we see those all the time, and they can't do that.

    She points to the wall behind her, where the clear outline of two humanoid bodies in black scorch lay. The space where they must have stood was the normal dingy grey of the walls around them. The immediate surrounding was a black halo. Looking around, you could see other signs that this was the area of an attack. Intermittent circles of black scorch dotted the alley. Sides of boxes, cobblestones, melted trashed, and what looked like a scorched food bowl were scattered everywhere.

    It might be going after animals, who even knows. The only reason we know it's going after people is the mess it leaves behind.

    If anyone knew don't you think we'd grab a guard or something. The thing's hiding ALL THE TIME. Anyway, if you're here to handle it, can't you, like, track it or something?
