Teh wordes buzzed around like angry eesin his head. Adding magic, what would happen. The last time that one had handled magic, he suffered. Suffered greatly from simply handling them. But how was this even happening. Like a draw of a moth to the flame, the drake found himself toting his fruit up to the stand where he had found those strong crystals there. And there were more. Pulsing with a light that made even the darkness growing around them grow deeper. His head screamed to stop, turn around and leave. Hold otno his fruit and eat it himself. But the draw was too much. “Creestals. All” was all he managed to get out to. The hooded thing standing there, practically restocking as he touched clawed foot to sand. Dirt. Something around the setup. Notice. It was a pull too strong for the inexperienced figure to hold against. Something wanted them, and would use him to get it. That tooth was cleaming. [all tainted crystals plese] x.20
The trader was quite used to having people come in immediately to get the crystals whenever they got them. The first person this month came by immediately with a whole basket of fruit, and the trader looked them over to count out worth. After a moment, they nodded and held out the crystals in one hand (held a little closer to them) and then held out the other hand closer to the other individual to take the fruits. Yes, acceptable.
A sharper eye might notice the subtle jerkiness of his hand as Flare set each piece of fruit up on the counter for the trader to inspect. He honestly wanted to keep the fruits, but the hand just kept moving. What would he eat?! Seeds?! Rip and tear teeth, not grind and crush! The last fruit left his trembling hand and he waited for the trader to inspect his fruit. They were good fruit, and kept very safe. No pests, creatures or naughty rakai could reach the fruit, kept nice and cushioned. Turned each day, and inspected very carefully for abrasions or general badness. So far, the harvests box did a fine job of cushioning the fruit and keeping it enough for eating or otherwise. The crystals were finally offered out, and Flare offered the empty basket to let them be placed into. He would do his best not to touch these.,. he could sense the wrongness.
The trader takes the trade as is offered, and then provides the crystals to them of course. It would soon be time to figure out where to put all of these fruits! If the crystals are worth more to the trader than anything else, the trader doesn't show it at all. The swap done, the trader begins to find a place for the items.

Riku: I got three pet levels and 15c out of it. <3 And all the necessary posts for my job salary form.

Riku: In mine my crossbreed used foxfire to burn it - but then it used incendiary illusion, which was extra scary because my cross is a plant pet with thick fur. It used the distraction to escape. I’m proud of it, and it’s okay that I won’t finish this month.

Renathan: *But of course, the RNG was not having that. / In Morgan's story, the Nyssa was a real thing, so I wanted to have two different situations for the variety.
May 31, 2020 18:15:27 GMT -6
Renathan: Yeah, the 'finished the story but the RNGods are being a butt' thing is a rather unfortunate situation to be in. I had already decided that in Ren's story, the elderly woman had lied about the nyssa and just wanted someone to talk to*

Riku: That makes sense. I've considered that before. -nod- I hope your non-hxr life is going smoothly.

Haix: Just quitting the job. Don't believe I'll be making the ten posts required per month any time soon. XD
May 31, 2020 16:34:01 GMT -6
Riku: Note to haix, I believe you can post the new application form at the same time as the quitting form. Unless you are simply taking an overall break from the job system.

Fiera Ferella: even AT the gardens yet. XD It sucks when you've finished writing your story and haven't gotten a success, because then its like "well... now what?" XD
May 31, 2020 15:51:47 GMT -6
Fiera Ferella: ive found that when there's a quest that might take longer like this, its a good idea to try and space out the story beats to try and roll a success before i get to the meat of the story. XD Like, by the time i was 5 posts in my character wasn't

Riku: It’d definitely put me a month closer to my goals, literally, at least. 🤔
May 31, 2020 15:50:19 GMT -6
Fiera Ferella: You can always try! :3 At the very least its more levels for your character and more TP for your pet
May 31, 2020 15:50:14 GMT -6
Riku: I love that you can mention that and know what it is. Muahahaha! Everyone has their secrets. 😈 (Iz not secret, just oOooOoooh mysterious effect. 😉)

Twilight-Claw: I hope you do decide and are capable of finishing it Riku! Will definitely be worth it in getting more points for your master plan.
May 31, 2020 15:48:23 GMT -6
Riku: I know...that was why I wanted to do it. Hm. Maybe I can plow through it. O.O (plow as in tumbling down a steep slope, not in the fast powerful way.)
May 31, 2020 15:48:18 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: This quest got 3+ quest points.
May 31, 2020 15:46:39 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: I have no idea about that one for sure, but there does seem to be a few that are nearly in the rainbow spectrum with how many different colors they have on their hide.
May 31, 2020 15:46:12 GMT -6
Riku: Note that I got panic buttons this month, so in the future if the quest is only a 1QP-er, I can go do a 3QP. Or if I simply don’t want to do a new one on both accounts, I can do an old one on the second. // I type faster than my phone screen can keep up.HA
May 31, 2020 15:45:15 GMT -6
Riku: Is there a rainbow sarane offspring yet? Descended from every T1? Lol That’s be cool. // I know I’m only a few posts away from completing the quests, but I’m SO tired that I’m in and out of coherence. Lol
