The building is a bit too far away to see that; it is quite a nice-looking building though, the architecture a fluid combination of wood and stone reminiscent of ancient times. The market is overflowing with traders haggling their wares and villagers chattering amongst themselves.
"Hey, firebrand!" The call comes from Jevis's right, where a green and teal Okotan stands in front of a booth piled high with fish. "Come, try some fish! Caught fresh from Lake Karian; bet you won't find this good a deal anywhere else!"
Ekimu nods to himself as the elemental being departs. He takes a deep breath, holds it for one second, two... at a count of three he lets it out. He then turns to the captain of the guards.
"I have more favors to ask of you, if I may."
"Of course, sir," she says, bowing her head. "What can we do for you?"
"I have several items to be fetched from my Forge. First, a Mask of Stone." He looks at the city sadly. "It's about time I started making amends for yesterday's events." The captain moves to start barking orders and Ekimu raises a hand, stopping her. "Apologies; I wasn't finished. At my Forge you should find a being known as the Collected. They... can be quite the handful. However, if you explain that I have summoned them, they should be responsive. Mentioning that Blaze is expected to be here should also be of help. Which brings me to my third point: if you see my apprentice during your trip, please extend my summons to him. We have an unfinished conversation." He provides the guards with descriptions of both Blaze and the collected and a quartet of guards hurries off for the Temple of Creation. (@KAI_BORG)
Ekimu then turns to Azure and Hitora. "I must thank you both for your assistance, both last night and today. This city wouldn't be half as safe without you. That being said, I'm afraid I must ask more of you. There are many tasks ahead of us all, but first: do you have contacts that may be able to assist with a task such as the mission to collect the Golden Masks?" (@Runa @Tarkur)
