"Thank you.
So, about what we were originally looking for, the spirit specialist."


Ersien: "We have many who deal with spirits - what sort of spirit information are you searching for?"

Bezel: "You can already tell my general, condition. It's damaged by ability to create child spirits, so, I would like to figure out how to fix that.

Also, a means to repair a damaged spirit-body connection."


Ersien: "I see. I think I know who can help you. Come."

You follow the shaman as he leads you into the village. With the hot, afternoon sun shining down, you can see everything more clearly - many lupus wearing colorful clothing, some wearing barely anything. The large village is constructed of wood and stone with many of the buildings being cylindrical or dome-like. A network of canals carry water to various buildings and pools, which are used for laundry or bathing.

Unlike the people of Raena, the lupus here are wary of Ingret, making an effort to increase the distance between them and her as you follow Ersien, watching your group from windows or behind cover.



Eventually, you reach a tower-like building, the windows on the bottom floor showing a variety of painted masks on display, some looking like familiar beasts, others are of unknown creatures.

The door opens before Ersien can knock, a white-furred lupus in a plain blue robe there to greet you.

He looks up at Ingret, seeming confused.

White Lupus: "Strange company you have brought me today."

Ersien: "They delivered a trade for us to Raena, and brought back the items we needed. In return, they wish to probe your specific knowledge of spirits."

White Lupus: "Oh? I see, you are useful folk. Come in, and we will see if I can give you what you seek."

Ersien nods to the White Lupus and leaves, the latter waving him goodbye. You and Bezel enter the house while Ingret settles for peeking through a window.

The interior is decorated with a plethora of tapestries and masks and assorted wood carvings, seeming a bit cluttered.

White Lupus: "Watch out for that one. Watch your step.

I really need to move that one."




The three of you manage to reach the dinner table without knocking anything over, and the lupus motions for you and Bezel to take a seat, which you do.

He sets some clay mugs in front of the two of you and one for himself, and then pours some hot tea from a kettle into all of them before sitting.

White Lupus: "I don't know if Ersien introduced me yet, but I am Basteln. I specialize in, tinkering, with spirits, yes."

Bezel: "I'm Bezel. This is Ralph. Our friend out there is Ingret."

Basteln: "Bezel, Ralph, Ingret. So, what do you wish to know?"

Bezel: "Two main things. The first - my spirit is, well, I have a bunch of them. The process of getting them all broke my ability to create child spirits, and I'd like to fix that. Second, we need to know the details of repairing a damaged spirit-body connection."

Basteln: "I see. For the first one, what was the, process, of getting all those spirits?"

Bezel: "I, don't know the details, but they were, obtained, and then fused to mine, in some manner."

Basteln: "Uh. Huh. That certainly sounds like something that would break something. I will inspect your spirit, if that is permissible."

Bezel nods, and the lupus closes his eyes.



Basteln: "It looks like this 'fusing' was a bit, crude, yes.

Well, I see the problem. Spirits have a self-repair capabilities, yes? When these other ones were fused to yours, some of them ended up overriding your spirit's self-repair. Self-repair also includes removal of foreign agents.

You're missing parts, to put it bluntly."


Bezel: "Ah. So, need to fix the self-repair, priority, I guess."

Basteln: "That would be the start. It cannot repair everything though, like the child-spirit creation part."

Bezel: "Is there a way to fix that?"

Basteln: "Well, you can't fix what isn't there."

Bezel: "So, I need to get one."

Basteln: "Yes."

Bezel: "From... Another spirit."

Basteln: "Unfortunately."

Bezel is silent, seeming a bit unpleased with the information.

Basteln: "That is beyond my expertise, unfortunately. Spirit-body connections are complex AM formations - not something I can help with.

If you find a willing person or spirit who will let you take their child-spirit creation part, I will perform the transfer for you."

"And- If Bezel had a child after the transplant, whose magic would the child inherit - Hers or the donor's?"

Basteln: "The child-spirit creation part does not contain any transferable magic. Whatever magic that is transferred is from the current host."

Basteln: "It would have to be a human spirit to get a child."

You look over at Bezel, who seems to be thinking, and not noticing you looking at her.

"...Listen. We have, acquired, a research tome, from a core beast, detailing its studies on the spirit-body connection. I know you said it's not your area of expertise, but- would you like to take a look? Perhaps you'll notice something we missed.

Just, I have to tell you. It's, pretty heavy stuff. The creature didn't much care for morality, just getting results."

Bezel: "Thanks for the information. We'll visit you again if we find a willing donor."

The lupus nods.

Basteln: "Is there anything else you need?"

Bezel looks at you.
