Something massive passed by the small island in the center, and Dalish disappeared. A moment later Dalish reappears next to us on the shore, and huge tentacles are grabbing people up off their feet. Bullets, spells, lightning, and curses fly. Klyce turns into a shark and jumps into the water to take it on its own turf. I try to take control of the storm it has summoned, but that does no damage to it. I pull deep from the odd energy of the Fae King and curse the thing. Shortly thereafter, Remy finishes it off with a few more shots. Klyce pulls a mirror shard out of its forehead while the cavern begins to shake. Wasting no more time, I teleport us back to our hotel in Buenos Aires.
Klyce and Philomena head out to dinner while the rest of us rest up and discuss what we’re doing next. There’s a lot of back and forth about the desert with the mountain and the desert with the labyrinth, and honestly, I’m not sure which one we’re headed towards. Either way, we decided to take a day off to find some mana and do some shopping.
Remy and I head out to a place Philomena has found that sells mana on the down low. We gather money from the group and manage to secure just over 1000 motes. We pack it up in a covered wagon to take it back to the hotel. They give us a tip on where to go for magic items, as well. Gathering up the rest of the group, we head out to see what kind of magic supplies we can find.
It’s a hidden alley full of magical vendors when we find it. Right, first thing, we get a Bag of Holding to carry the massive kegs of mana. Then we head over to a guy named Gary to buy a bunch of scribing supplies. Everyone goes a bit feral then, going from vendor to vendor buying all sorts of things. I help as many as I can get decent prices, or at least less than they initially ask for. I buy a bag of tricks for Maribeth and sending stones for Nat. She gives me one to hold onto since we’re the two most likely to be doing the teleporting for the group. We also manage to find a potion seller and get 20 healing potions of a couple different strengths.
When we get back. Nat tries out the boots and gloves she bought. The boots sing quietly while she sneaks, and the gloves start shouting if she tries to steal things while wearing them. Well, that’s fun. Hopefully everything else we bought isn’t quite so unreliable.
