Orrbet, still timid with the amount of people around, is still taking in the sights of the city and is memorizing where alley ways, dark corners, and make sketchy people or shops are. He has perfected this system to find shortcuts and quick escape locations just in case things go arigh. He will point out side streets to the party and creates a mental map in his head of landmarks. He wants to learn more from the ruler of this city, so he is pointing the party to shortcuts to get there.
OOC: Orrbet is using his [feature]City Secrets[/feature] background feature to navigate his way in the city and find any shortcuts to their destination.

Orrbet Rockclinger - The Floating Lands of Goriate
Well orbet does manage to cut through the alley ways and get to the castle where more gaurds are but showing the paper to them you are all escorted to the king he is guarded by some gaurds and a magician/jester who comes down and greets you. He takes the letter to the king who opens it and raises his hand for you all to speak to him. He is a mute but can understand what you all are saying.
“Greetings, we come from Palle, as you already know, and we come with upsetting news. Isher, a demon of considerable power, has taken the waterfall near the town and is spawning his own minions to terrorize it. We managed to clear out some of them, yet we consider it would be wiser to intrust this issue in more capable and experienced hands.”
The king answers by using sign language (You all can understand this as the magician/Jester translates it for you and says what he is saying. ( His Majesty says My people the people of this city and village are in considerable danger from this one Isher I sent a group of people to dispose of him but now I fear they have died). Now the this one is conjuring up more demon spawns this issue must be dealt with. You all have seen this Monster fight but you don't feel up to the task of killing it? Palle seems quite concerned considering the Magi and Ursula where in battle over Isher but also a castle to the east of here had all it's Arcs wiped out (The king and Magician look at the Arc in the back before continuing) by possible demons one was described they had wings of a black Raven. Would you mind if I entrusted this task to you all instead?and we will see about sending more able fighters against this Isher. (I am more in the arts of magic and juggling kind of magician he shows off his juggling of swords they are razor sharp looking. 14 he does do well with it and then makes the blades disappear and reappear at the kings side
“What do you all think? I mean, it’s either Isher or the one with Raven wings. Honestly, I don’t mind either, but we already know more about Isher, I believe hunting him would be easier, we just need better equipment and a strategy.”, Vezder addresses the King and the party.
"I would hunt down this winged demon. We might need more skill to defeat Isher, not only sharper blades. Hey Orrbet! What do you think? The thing killed some of your own. You want to get some payback?"
"Fight fight fight, kill kill kill. Has anyone tried talking to then, asking then what they want? Not every knot needs to ve cut down the niddle!" Kamina sighs.
"Hoot!" adds her owl for emphasis.
Seeing the propensity for violence not just among her colleagues but also the ruling class - the attitude pervades almost all sentient life from root to tip! - she's beginning to formulate a theory that perhaps these "demons" are no more than the environment's answer to an aggressive infection, antibodies trying to isolate and destroy an invader. That the harder they fight these demons the more aggressive and powerful they will become until either the infection is destroyed or the host burns itself out. And speaking as part of the "infection" that keeps all it's stuff on the "host" she's not keen to see either happen.
“You don’t speak to your prey, at least in my expirience . And if those demons don’t see us as their prey, I don’t know how they do. I want to visit enchanters shop before we depart. I guess we are settled on the one with raven wings then?”
Arriving and seeing into the place it has a deepsea look coral walls and various items inside armors, and leathers even some weapons. At the desk a Krakenoid sits. They are tall about 13 ft they are half kraken and half human like race this one has 9 tenticals legs coming from its torso his body is scaled and black with claws on his hands. this one is missing its tenth leg but can stand fine. They are known for being able to make water like weapons which are just as good as the metal ones sometimes being able to make theirs magical. Hello there and welcome to my shop are you looking to be enchanted today or have something enchanted or deal some damage as well? His common isn't the best but it is understandable they do live deep in the ocean most of the time most the time in a place called the Razor trench which is pretty deep in the ocean not many up in the floating lands know what goes on down there just it's a thing a there is rumored to be a colossal sized Kraken capable to destroying lands. (A bit of lore on them as they are thought to be if it exists offspring of that Kraken)
“Yes, hello. What types of enchantment do you have, and how much would it cost to enchant a longsword and a shield?”, Vezder wanders, looking at the Krakenoid. This one was interesting to him, as he hasn’t seen many in his lifetime. It always was interesting to see how they make the weapons out of water.
He narrows a grin smiling It all depends on the kind of enchantment and how powerful I could for example enchant your long sword to do any of the elemental damages it just matters how powerful you want them. With the shield I can make it defend against any of the elemental types (Makes you resistant to it so take half damage instead of full. or if you are already resistant it makes you immune but if your vulnerable it makes it do regular damage) there is 5 levels of enchantment for damage wise 5 being almost legendary level so it's quite expensive 1 being the lowest is about 8 gp each enchantment of level 1. 2 is 16 gp it does more damage once it goes to 3 it can start doing area effects like for example fire it could do a ring of flames around a target and damage to them a round on top of the damage. the shield since there is only one level is 10 gp. the 1 enchantment is 1d8 damage of the element and each enchantment it goes up by 1d8 and 3 and higher has effects on top of that.
“Perfect. I would like a second level enchantment on my longsword. I was thinking to add a little psychic or force capabilities to it, but at the end of the day I need something that is useful against demons. Would you happen to know a type of damage that is effective against their kind?”, Vezder hands 16 gold pieces to the Krakenoid, alongside with his sword.
