As Lysennia and Danyar are escorted in by a couple of guards they are led through the building and through it to the upper level where management offices would be expected to be. As they enter they can see a series of runes written on the ground triggered by a Sorcerer to open a portal that leads them to another room somewhere. It is obvious you are no longer in the Emporium as the smell of city refuge is replaced by the smell of the sea and clean air.
The portal closing behind you leaves Danyar and Lysennia turning around to where a well dressed soft looking middle aged human sits in a desk, protected by what is obviously veteran guards. "Welcome Rangers, Please have a seat and we can begin to negotiate."
After the Rangers sit and are treated to a some refreshments the man says. "I am Mr. Jutzenkas and as I understand it you are looking for our supposed stock piles of silver flower. I think it is obvious if the Rangers are looking for it, then you are hoping it can be one of the tools to save the city. But what I am curious about is how much do you actually need and how many resources where surrendered to you for this purchase?"
As he talks the putting the situation and discussion in the context of the kindly face is hard. The man is obviously a influential crime boss, but he presents himself more like a kindly father than the expected intimidating presence.
Outside the Emporium Tieranor is able to move into a position of advantage, confident he is still unobserved. Many of the guards watching over the team come out of hiding and relax, their weapons no longer trained on the heroes, so much as being held relaxed in their hands.
Max and one of the guards feeling bored as they wait says. "So, you guys are hoping to fix this problem or what? Father says there is no fixing it, because the problem is alchemy or something."
The guard nods agreeing. "Apparently even the nobles are being affected and they have sorcerers and everything. But I heard some druids thought they had an idea of how to fix it, but their magic was to weak to even help one person."
