"... The shapeshifters and other denizens of the dark tested a nightmarish ghoul plague in Enarou. They took the guises of those in power to help their process along and you brother was among them. Now refugees are allowed to leave the countryside without scrutiny and one of these caravans will be delivering the ghoul plague to other parts of Jaquim and the world at large. I insist I am not wasting your time, it is on you to believe me or let me walk off as a perceived madman."

"You asked me if I knew of him, and what I know is that something took on his image and position in the community of Enarou. This sort of claim seemed like one you might prefer to keep from the public at least for a little while, hence I requested we speak in private."

Sir Mattimeo rubs his frowning brow. "Rodrigo? What do you think?"
Rodrigo enters the booth. "He believes what he is saying, sir. He may be mad, but as a practitioner of the Art, I would not rule out the possibility that these shapeshifters are real and wreaking havoc on our lands. The issue is that if Amos speaks truly, we have no proof and no leads to go on. The shapeshifters he has seen are all dead, and their remains have likely been consumed by the ghouls or spirited away by their fellows."

Mattimeo sighs, and looks again at Amos. "That...shapeshifter you say took the form of my brother, you saw it die, right? So if by some chance we see Tanvor again, can we be sure it's really him?"


Meanwhile, the army healer chuckles at Touka's impatience. "Hold your horses, I'm almost finished. By the by, though, I'm surprised you survived. Your body has the resilience of a troll. Would you mind if I took a sample of your blood?"

"... I haven't the faintest idea of how to tell shifters from others. There are too many unanswered questions here in eastern Jaqim. What are their goals? How does this plague work and where did it come from? What has become of the substituted? I was on my way to the royal library to study the records of these creatures and their darkness."

Touka gets pricked and after some vials are collected she is released.

"We might only find the answers after we reclaim Enarou," Sir Mattimeo remarks sadly. "Which brings me to another question: Will you join us in our holy battle? You would have to go with the foot, of course, but since you already have prowess with a sword there would always be a place for you. You say you have no land of your own, why not fight for ours?"

"I don't think I'm your size, I'll go ask one of the knights."
Touka ends up with a baby blue woolen tunic and black leggings, that have a peculiar pattern embroidered in maroon along the sides.
The club looks relatively undamaged, but the bank documents have been reduced to ash and blackened scraps. Fortunately this land's currency doesn't use some ridiculously flammable material like paper or hemp, and while the coins have some deformation around the edges the average merchant will likely still accept it.

"My skill with the blade is enough to fend off a lone brigand or two. It was thanks to your miraculous appearance that I'm still breathing. And despite that, I must humbly decline. A small army can eliminate the ghoul threat here and now but it won't stop the next outbreak or whatever the shifters are plotting. I am committed to reaching the capital and pouring over the archive's texts to find clues of a cure or a method of detecting shapeshifters."

~~Inn~~
"An ambitious plan to be sure," Mattimeo says, "I had not considered that myself, being a man of action rather than book work. I must warn you though, the Royal Academy keeps a tight lock on their knowledge of the supernatural. I can draft up a letter vouching for you, but I don't know how far that will get you. It might be a good idea to ingratiate yourself with a Magister."
"Oh, you can try to speak with Yinsen Garcia," Rodrigo adds, "He was one of my teachers at the Academy, we were thick as thieves during my school days."

~~Bank~~
The bank at Belle's Cross is a simple affair, a squat stone building that is a miniature of the treasury at Enarou. The clerk is a well dressed man in his middle years. "Your documents were destroyed in an accident? Well let me check..."
Tufts of hair protrude from the sides of his head, like the ears of a fox.
"At the normal pace, it will take about a fortnight to notify the Central branch in Domiente and notarize new documents to access your deposit. The ah...process, can be expedited for an additional service fee."

As Amos arranges a room for the night he sees touka enter the inn. "Hey, Ms. Touka!" he waves his hand to call for her attention. He abruptly leaves the innkeeper to approach his singed comrade. "... Wow, you are quite the charmer in your new garments. How is your health?"

"Well, I'd be lying if I said I'm completely comfortable in your presence. Your candid affect is certainly more enjoyable than the pretensions of thugs and travelling peasants though. I'm headed off to my room, I'll meet you here in the morning."

Amos heads off to his living space. If he is in a private room he will set a document of inverted movement in front of his door (that is, it sends them flying backwards as soon as they try to move forwards while in contact with the document, though the magic won't last too long).

A night of peaceful slumber passes, more inebriated for some than others.

Amos finds his privates remain undisturbed by others. Er, he also finds his private room's door undisturbed. Touka wakes up with a slight hangover, as her body is focused on making her not look like a burn victim for the rest of her life.

They both head down to the common room. "Amos Daniels? The paladin said to give this to you before they left." A barmaid hands Amos an envelope sealed in yellow wax, upon which is imprinted a capital I made of swords.

"Wait! He also said to give this to the, ah, burned lady!" The barmaid hands Touka a small vial containing a mostly clear liquid with a reddish tint.

Muknid's Magic Emporium is written in bold, curly yellow script on the front of the store. Small wind chimes jangle as the two proceed through the doorway. A bearded halfling pops up from behind the desk wearing a blue fez and a winning smile.
"Aha! Welcome, welcome to the Magic Emporium!" he exclaims. "I'm Muknid, proud proprietor of this establishment. If you're looking for great magicked items at a discount, you've come to the right place!"

[So we don't further fracture the space time continuum, it's a minor healing potion]

Muknid looks confused. "Dispelled? Spells are hard enough to get right, why would you want to ruin some perfectly good magic? Well, you look like some no-nonsense kinda folks, so I'll keep it simple."
Putting on some gloves, he pushes his wheel-borne stool over to the far wall and opens up a back cabinet. He returns holding a thin leather necklace loop, from which a small, irregularly shaped stone hangs. The pendant is black with streaking veins of dull green, and Touka recognizes it as orichalcum.
"This little guy here will stand up to all but the most powerful of magics. Just touch it to an enchantment or something powered with spells, it'll mess them up right proper. Does your good companion here want one as well?"

"Combat, eh? Alright, I think I have something that fits the bill, but don't say I didn't try to keep it simple."
Muknid rolls over to a large chest on the ground, hops off his chair and starts rummaging through it.
About a minute later he returns with what looks like a jumble of small carved wooden shapes, connected to each other by hinges, strings and other mechanical fastenings.  "This is the real deal, so don't give me weird looks."
He spreads it out on the desk, where it expands into an elongated shape. Most of the length consists of a double row of black painted wedges, each with an orichalcum chip embedded in its tip. Rectangular adjoining pieces of the same color link the wedges as well as small forked hooks reminiscent of antlers, all fastened by metal screw joints through the center of each piece.
At one end of the bizarre device is a ring structure that resembles a hilt, and a long thin winding strip from which several switches protrude.

"This here is a Fei disruption vane, likely the only one of its kind you'll find this side of the Serpentine Sea. It was taken off the body of an Imperial Grandmaster, although I can't imagine what could possibly have offed one of those tough bastards. The vane is a frame that locks tight in place over your sword, or whatever you hit people with. These switches wrap around the handle so that when you hold it you can manipulate the current disruptors for different effects."
He fiddles with the switches, and different individual wedges turn in response.

"I don't know its full capabilities, but from what I've heard with the right angles and configuration one swing can redirect a spell projectile, dissipate animating force, or even invert a spell on its caster. Crazy, huh? It fits most longswords, although it was made specifically for those fancy masterwork bastard swords they love to use in the south."

"Eh, was thinking of putting it at three grand at the least, seeing as how it's something you don't normally find for sale. But nobody seems to want it, nobody I can trust not to snitch on me at least, so for you it can be 1,800 rooks. I am of course amenable to alternative pricing and payment plans."

"All I have on me is about five hundred rooks, unless you would be up to negotiating for an exclusive trade agreement with the Oni's of Nippon, I have to go to the bank and pay this to have access to 50 pounds of gold within the day."

Muknid presses his tongue and fingers his chin in thought.
"I do like the idea of an exclusive trade contract, but Nippon is far to the south. If you haven't heard the news, our fair kingdom's southron ports aren't the safest places to be at the moment. Even after the church declares an all clear there's still the possibility that Fei might invade while the coast is weak. No, it would take far too long for me to see a return on that, if any.

Oh, but if you have 50 pounds of gold in the bank, why haven't you gotten it yet? Are you afraid of being robbed? Belle's Cross is quite safe...well, except for that incident with the agents, but they're gone now, thank the Lord. Anyway, you can go ahead and make a withdrawal. I can wait, and this thing will probably still be here when you get back with the money."

"Bank documents burned up in an attack, I gotta either pay a certain amount of money, 500 to get access today, by the way, do you know if they are telling the truth about that?"

"Oh yes, they do charge that much for their premium courier service. I'll let you in on a little known fact; the premium you pay is for the privilege of using a kingdom-wide teleportation network that also carries royal communications and the Inquirer. And all the crown subsidies they get makes their profit margin absolutely disgusting. But I suppose it's worth it if you really have no other way to access your vault."
