The salve dose its wok in healing you. As you approach Winterfall, the moon is high in the sky but clouds cover the light making the road hard to see.

You see the rode clearly. As you approach Winterfall threr is a large gate with a few guards there. "Stop no one is aloud past here except for the kings men."

Carthyra begins to walk into the camp, but is stopped by a guard. He makes her nervous because she's heard how the humans can be prejudiced against other races. "B...but I have a delivery for the Court of Sieto from Barvica. The king himself commissioned a potion from my Master at the Sweet Quill, you see. I just need somewhere to stay the night without being attacked by something wild from the woods." She tries her best not to seem like she's begging and tries to achieve this by providing information that could give her story some credibility. She's not sure if she was successful, however, as she awaits the guard's response.

The Guards started to laugh at Carthyra. "You wan't to see the King, The King. HAHAHAHA. There is no way your getting through this outpost." Another guard comes out. "What all the fuss about, out here." the other guard still laughing"She want to go see the king. and that her master is the alchemist from the Sweet Quill." The other guard looked at the girl "Now listen her girl, we don't take kindly to lairs, The guards haven't heard anything from the king about a potion he wants, or a messenger. You can stay the night but at dawn I want to head back where you came from and not bother us again."

Carthyra recoils at the guard's laughter and her eyes fall to her feet. She takes the first guard's abuse and offers a weak, "Thank you, sir. I will, sir." to the second guard. She wonders why the humans did not believe her story. Maybe their ethnocentricism painted the encounter and they didn't believe her because she was an elf. Maybe they had fought against elves personally and saw them all as enemies despite the legitimate political ties of Barvica. Perhaps as lawkeepers, they're used to liars and her nervousness is what aroused suspicion. Maybe by trying too hard to seem credible, her details made the story seem too incredible to accept. That was very possible.

Maybe they're just stupid brutes who don't understand anything involving their own stupid world. Of course she wasn't going to see the king, she had said her delivery was for the court. She'd give it to some kind of administrator or steward. The King won't broadcast every detail of his personal life for the world, the potion could be for hemorrhoids or constipation for all she knew...

She continues to mull over the possibilities and angles of the unpleasant encounter as she walks slowly through the camp. She tries to analyze the reasons of the encounter like reagents and ingredients and the bitter outcome as a failed potion. As she agonizes over her social failures, she finds a spot near a fire between two tents and unrolls her bedroll; she mumbles without realizing, "I wish it was just me, master, and a lab in this world without having to deal with other mean people.". She munches on some food from her pack in a particularly glum mood and, if nothing else happens, turns over to sleep.

The guard that was at the front came by with a bruised eye a cut lip, some fire wood and a plate of food he placed the fire wood next to the fire and went over to Carthyra "Sorry about laughing at, you its just we've been on edge lately, some spies try to get into the camp so.. When you said your going to see the king I thought that was the most unbelievable course to get in. I got a good beating by the captain I forgot we are part of the Royal guard, So we have to so more restraint. And the Captain is Also half-elf so that might also have a course in me getting a bigger punishment then I deserved. Well hers some fire wood if you get cold in the night. I have to go clean the stables for the night." The guard sticks out the food waiting for Carthyra to take it.

Carthyra sits there thinking. She nibbles at a piece of traveling bread that she had recieved from her Master and it helps calm her anxious stomach. Suddenly there's a dull clatter as somebody drops wood by the fire. Now approaching her is... the guard? He speaks to her, but she doesn't hear his words. After "I'm sorry about laughing at you..." his words trail off and she notices his cut lip moving differently to accommodate the wound and the way his bruised eye looks different from his good eye as his eyebrows move throughout his apology. As he extends the food, she sees Harper in the mine: hurt but still kind. She assumes that he was ordered to apologize by the captain, but that doesn't seem to be all of it. An insincere apology would have left the food on the ground and left after he'd fulfilled his order. He felt remorse. After a few moments of her thinking about the situation and him awkwardly holding a plate out, she gingerly takes it. Even though it is just some fire roasted meat and boiled cabbage, she adopts a slight involuntary smile. She doesn't make eye contact, but still replies, "You shouldn't have gotten beaten for me. It's a crazy story anyway." It was the best she could do with her mind running laps around the situation. Her stomach wasn't upset anymore and she noticed she was no longer anxious and more comfortable around the guard, so she started eating the meal the guard brought to her.

As she starts eating the meat, she has an idea. "Wait. Here," she blurts out with a half-full mouth. She fishes in her pile of belongings while she chews and swallows and then holds out a shining vial to him. "This is called luminous water. It's made by distilling the thorax of lightning bugs in a solution of water and powdered sphalerite under high temperature. I won't make you listen to the science behind it, but it absorbs the light of the sun during the day and releases it when it gets dark. I know it's not much use to a soldier, but please take it. I know war is a harsh place, but don't let the bad in this world take goodness from you."

The guard looks at the vile of water and notices how it shines brightly in the night. "How many of these do you have?" The guard calls over a new recruit "I want you to go get the captain this is very important." The recruit runs to go get the captain. the guard turns back to Carthyra "I am Malki, and what you have there can very well help us in the fight against night raids, signaling people, for night raids, and even saving peoples lives. Tell me dose it only shine in the dark like if you put it in a bag will the light not go out of the bag or if you covert up how well will it light the area up."

Carthyra is surprised at his interest. She takes a few seconds to think about what he says before replying. She meant for it to be an object of sentiment to remind him to be compassionate in the future. Soldiers will be soldiers after all. Whatever her intentions were, she learned well from Master to never pass up an opportunity to sell. "It has roughly the illuminating power of a torch, you see. The Sphalerite acts as a catalyst to enhance the lightning bug thorax's light effect. Maybe a bag could contain its light, but a heavy canvas bag. A lighter linen won't be able to contain it." She retrieves her book of formulas and flips to Luminous Water. "It needs to be in sunlight for an hour to charge, but will shed light for a full 12 hours as if by a light spell, which is like a torch's light. Ooh! You can make it from distilling glow worms and mushrooms too. I only have this one right now, but if I had access to a lab I could make a whole lot more for you. How many do you think you need?"

Carthyra never really worked with selling to customers before. Peddling the shine water was her first experience, and that was working a crowd. She tries to remember how Master would sell to individual customers who already knew what they wanted. "Details first. You have to sell the item, then tell them how much it will cost." She'd be generous on the price since the captain had stuck up for her and since Malki had been nice.

The recruit comes back with the captain. "What is it Malki." Malki turns around to address the captain "Sir these bottles of water." Malki went into explaining about how the water can help on the field. The Captain walks up to Carthyra "So you can make these,hmmm mabe you can be of use to use. even though you tried to get past us. You also need an alchemy lab is what I herd. Tell us what you need and we can get it set up for you. Ill also arrange for you to have a permanent tent where you can work you are not apart of the army so you can leave and come as you wish but the more you help us the more money you can make. What do you say alchemist."

Carthyra is shocked by the substantial opportunity. She could actually be... a professional alchemist. On her own. She isn't sure if she was quite ready for private practice. However, if master had more deliveries, it wouldn't hurt to have a side project for extra gold and a free place to stay in a large crossroads like Winterfall. Besides, how complicated of things could the army ask for? "Oh, gee. Uh... Oh dear. Well, to make these waters all I would need is a distillation setup. I'd need a bunson burner, a distillation tube, about 10 feet of rubber tubing, a water source of a few gallons, a hand pump, a distillation flask, at least 4 rubber stoppers, and of course the materials for the actual product. Most of these are things you probably already have in your medical tent, but the distillation flask and tube require very delicate glass blowing work. If you were to allocate the funds for me to get a full lab, I could make many more useful goods like fire beetle paste or shine water. If you'd let me go to Sieto, I could make my delivery, purchase the lab, and give you a day's labor on my way back to Barvica without you having to use your own men to fetch supplies." The more she talks about it, the more she really wants to do it. She gets excited the same way she is when she discovers a new formula and dearly hopes it could happen.

The captain looked at her. Astonished at she could remember all that from memory "WE can get your alchemy lab set up. you may go to Sieto do you dilivery and get supplies when you return we will have everything ready for you to begin work." A soldier come up to the captain and talks to him in a low voice. "It seems your tent is already ready Its close to a large lake with a pump for water and other things you may find useful." The captain begins to walk away. "Good night Alchemist."

Carthyra calls out to the captain as he leaves, "Wow... um, good night to you too, sir." She finishes her food in a furtive excitement and then begins repacking her things. Once everything is together, she goes to the tent. She doesn't bother inspecting the lake as it is probably too dark to see very far anyway, but she tries the pump and drinks some water and washes her face. She takes off her armor in the tent and applies a dose of elf hazel to the scar on her chest where the drider slashed her in the mine. She begins compiling a list of goods from her formula book that she thinks the soldiers might find useful along with their prices. Once she's satisfied with the list, she unrolls her bedroll and goes to sleep.

The night passes as Carthyra sleeps. As Dawn breaks the sound of a loud drum comes booming trough the camp. The captain walk through the camp yelling at the top of his lungs."Wake up Maggots it training time. I wanna to see everyone Ready and front of me in 10 min!!" The sound of heavy iron boots and armor clanking around fills the air.

Carthyra is roused by harsh yelling. She starts and stays in her bedroll for a minute as the memory of her dreams run out of her head as fast as the soldiers outside. Eventually she plucks the courage to get up and peek out the tent toward the lake. She looks from the safety of her tent with a keen eye for signs of alchemical substances that she was familiar with gathering from the pond next to the Sweet Quill: amphibians, insects, fungi, and plants.

Spot check: +10

After she scans her new environment for a few seconds, she puts her armor on and packs her belongings. She tries to slip out in the chaos of the camp toward Sieto before the men get organized. She is incredibly nervous that she is going to be called out by a commander and forced into training. She keeps repeating to herself what the Captain had said to her last night, "You can leave and come as you wish." She hopes she doesn't attract too much attention.

You spot several different types of amphibians, insects, fungi, and plants. As you walk around to the gate a few guards noticed her but left her alone. As you arrive at the gate some guards where standing there. They looked at you "Ah, the alchemist. we where told to let you in and out s you please just remember past this point there are a few areas where battles are fought or are still fighting so good luck to you." The guards open the gate letting Carthyra walk through if she wishes.

as your walking to Seito the sky is dark and filled with clouds. you hear explosions in the far distance coming from Winter Fall. but nothing appears before as if most of the monsters are some where else.
