"Ah, hm. Magic constructs! Specifically the portions that control the construct.
They manufacture and develop magical and non-magical things like that, machinery for complex control and logic. Such as, mm... controlling and tracking a casino's worth of slot machines from a central location. Things like that.
A mass producible alternative to what you'd normally need a skilled constructor for."


Vakus: "Intriguing.

So what brings you this far north?"

"Archaeology. The people of the past have invented, developed, lost, and then invented again more technology than we even have today. My job is to find constructs and long lost technology and get it for our researchers.
Coming north was also a great chance to have one of our constructors go learn at a proper school in Castellum II.

Right now my team and I are trying to get Castellum in Vallis. Admittedly, aside from the work aspect, I'm also kind of interested in just seeing the history."

Vakus: "There is certainly much history in this continent, some places from before the Corruption still intact.

I am curious how you intend to make your way into Vallis."

"Well, that's sort of why we're here in Bordello.
Going from Vellum directly was obviously a non-starter, but we'd heard that Bordello and the southern Gria territories were pretty amiable towards Vellum, Sial, and Vallis.
So, if there was anywhere we could find help, it'd be here."

Vakus: "The only foreigners permitted to enter Sial are merchants. If you have goods to sell, I could look into setting up a trade line that will get you permission to travel through Sial.

After that, you will have to find your own way into Vallis."

"...the only ones? Really? Even people from the Gria states, or the UEN?"

Vakus: "The First and Third were allies during the Caelum-Daeli war, but that fell apart when the Third disintegrated and their remnants formed the UEN. The ideals of the UEN are in direct contrast to those of the First, and no alliances or pacts were made when the UEN formed.

Vallis and Sial is also paranoid of UEN spies lurking in Gria territory, so very few can enter the countries."

Hm. I'll need to think about the merchant offer."

Vakus: "Of course."

He turns to Raali, who has already pulled out an envelope from her robe, handing it to you.

Vakus: "Information detailing how to contact me, should you come to a decision."

"Thank you.
Though I have to ask, you offered very quickly. What would you get out of this?"

Vakus: "Overseeing the trade of brand new foreign merchandise that cannot be acquired anywhere else is a, rare business opportunity. I foresee it being quite profitable for the both of us."

You retreat back to the small inn where the truck is still safely parked in the lot, with everyone hopping inside to make sure nothing was somehow stolen.

Good time to give the team the next step of the plan.

"Thanks by the way, Oliver.
Your and Val's abilities to just, shmooze without prompt is more impressive than any magic I've ever seen.

A merchant. Not what I had hoped for, but not super surprising. That's a decision above my pay grade, and a big time investment too.
I guess if we pack Ingret to the gills we could minimize trips, but... I don't at all like locking her into this. Maybe if we had other birds to help.



Thoughts?"

Valerie: "This sounds like the only legal way to get into Sial so far.

Though, it's possible that Vakus didn't mention other existing solutions and specifically wants to have a monopoly of UC products in the Gria region. Telling you only about the merchant route maximizes his chances of getting UC to work with him.

And, what exactly is a Saahi? Someone with a decent amount of power over trade, but I feel like it's different from a merchant."
