So you're basically going to pay us with whatever scrap is left over from the job?
How about, "No."
P.S: I got better shit to do than make trumpets, why do you even want one out of Star Metal? That shit is far more useful being crafted into actually useful equipment.
Dreams...misty dreams, of a black dragon standing before a moon well, eyes glistening with greed.
An old half orc, surrounded by a pack of wolves, baying for blood.
An ancient whale, swimming in the depths above a temple beneath the waves...
With many of the great ancient wyrms and other dragons being slain by the angelic host the majority of the dragons have once again retreated into solitude and isolation. Though many of the lesser creatures remain ignorant of their role and sacrifice in defense of the old world there are some who remember and tales spread, dragons forever linked to the great War of the Angels...
Rumors abound that some of these mighty creatures remain causing many a sage, lord, and peasant to wonder what effect that will have on the realms...
Word spread that several gnoll hunting parties have been spotted in the Anauroch lately. Desert travelers caution all heading that way.

I wish you good fortune in getting to the bottom of this. Sadly, I was merely a sergeant rarely outside the upstairs library and with the sudden departure of former Lieutenant Gimlette, was occupied with trying to keep the tower together during the Angel Incursion.

Glad to know Percilus.
There's much to do, from Netherese ruins in the desert to a mystery ancient machine just below the city begging to be activated once again! I also need to find components to create a few summoning circles and portal to other planes...
Pack your bags and come find me whenever you can and we depart.
I will do the best I can to ensure the safety of the people in the south-west. I am grateful that you are alive, and the frustration of knowing you were to be executed and that I could do nothing did much to harm my faith. I am proud that you were able to remain true to your purpose to the very end. It speaks to your character, and I have faith that we will build a better kingdom from these ashes.
I wasn't aware Tyrs words, spoken as prelude to the attempted Glory invasion and take over of the Material Plane, still held any weight. If you desire to continue to act as a member of invading army. Despite your masters being banished by the Council of Dragon and the world clearly not coming to a end, then you will be treated as a common traitor to the Crown, no different from all the dead Banites traitors who have been executed for serving the Zhentish cause on similar grounds.
I do not -care- what Tyr supposedly thinks. We are not in a Triad Theocracy, the authority of the law comes from the Crown, and neither of the false Glory legal codes are remotely even in the spirit of his majesty desire with there barbaric punishments used to force conversion by fear and torture and there highly open interpretations designed to make corruption and abuse easy.
Furthermore I find you a disgraceful man who King Bahamut who find most disgusting, in the way you sacrifice the weak for your own sake and show no sense of responsibility or affection for the wyrmlings in your care known as Amal and Reas. So don't act like your some righteous man stranding before tyranny, when your personal conduct is so poor.
You are a disgrace to your god and will cause more damage to the reputation of your faith than any Banite plot ever could. In fact in years to come I predict Banite preachers will talk of these day as proof that the Triad are nothing but power hungry, intolerant and barbaric crusaders, and you as a dead criminal with hands caked in blood.
Keep hiding away in South West if you wish. Sooner or latter it will return to Crown compliance and you will have to hide in the sewers like the filthy rat you are. My only hope at this it can be done so without much violence.

The letter has the words burned into the parchment
There is a few ways of accomplishment for your task, all are dangerous and will require proper preparation, the reagents that you hold will be very useful in aiding the one task. The first task is gain a vast some of fire elemental ash, this ash must be rekindled through offerings to Kossuth, and constant heat being poured into them, this will take a great deal of energy and without the aid of a true cleric of Kossuth, or a grand Pyromancer, you will find this task more difficult then you have hoped, for when the ash begins to be rekindled you will have to find a way to control this "primal" flame, for it will burn fast and most likely burn everything around it. Think of it as a flash of lightning, but instead of just a flash a constant flare for as long as it can burn. I would fear that the flame would burn your elven holy place. So a place to summon this creature would have to be found, and also a continued source of fuel for the creature. A place for the blade to cool, would be more fitting for your holy site. Your Second option is to travel down to the lava tunnels deep in the underdark, and "capture" one of the primal flames that linger near the deep magma pools, again a place to store and keep the creature contained will be needed. The last option is that of more diplomatic, and very unlikely to be accomplished however it might prove more easier then the others, You would have to make contact with a Azer or a Fire Giant, (that is willing to communicate), and bargin for one of their coals that they have. These coals can hold the primal flame for a elf time, and would be very VERY useful if gained, as this can store any of the greater fire elementals that will be needed to heat your blade. However a keen smith will be needed to craft this. I hope this have provided some insight to you and the warband Mistress Rodia. I have a few other rituals but I am afraid that my brother order of the Disciples of the Salamander, are more distasteful for your cause, thou vastly easier then the above challenges. I would speak in person on these, as they are my lords true wrath. Again I hope these give you the keen insight you and the warband require. Flames guide you.
Your report is appreciated. I pity the poor Warwizard who has to make ethical and legal judgements on this mess, but in the end I know I personalty place most blame on the Glory Angels. They are -suppose- to be wise, yet they created a climate of terror that let the very worse in people gain traction and made horrors seem the only way to survive.
Hardly the action of the wise who are suppose to care.
Amal's fate was chosen by the Glory, when he decided to duel and failed. He is honorable enough to not concede his beliefs in the face of death. We may speak as to an arrangement. This has occurred much as I told both of you. They will not stop. However, I won't negotiate for his life. Not with devil-worshippers. Not even in the face of doom itself may our oaths of the paladin be broken.
I look forward to meeting with you. I will send for you from Hawklins Estate and we can talk further. I seek like-minded individuals to restore law and order to Arabel and to make sure that the militia indeed follows the very laws they are supposed to enforce. I plan to work alongside them to make them a stronger and better organization, but at the same time to make them accountable for their actions. The corruption needs to stop, and I have seen first hand how far the militia has fallen.
I will seek you out soon,
Helm protect you,
