"No." - he kinda snaps - "We go back to the village now and Velstar announces what happened, there'll be no containing this. People will be terrified of Yen and suspicious of Saemon, and this thing will snowball all the way to the Citadel."

He goes up to Velstar.

"Velstar, this is the journal of a woman who could insulate a wolf's mind from Raw Magic. The way it's guarded, and how everyone's been rushing to get it back, there has to be something major in here. There could be a way in here to help Yen and Saemon, but it'll be too late if everyone in Waterglass starts treating them like the plague."

"Are you suggesting we skim the contents of this massive tome inside the fort? We can't afford to waste time on that while the people of Waterglass go restless at the absence of their town guard chieftain and a little girl."

"That's not what i was getting at, but now that you mention it, there does seem to a be ton of magical energy emanating from this thing. If we're gonna at least open it, might be safest to do it away from the populace."

He awaits Velstar's response.

As you approach Velstar, she gives final instructions to the members of the militia. They nod at her, then spread out. Two of them run south, towards the path leading to the village, and the three others stay near Saemon. The thieves, except for Molly and and Calla, approach the bodies of their colleagues and cover them with their cloaks.

Once the party reaches the warden, she explains the orders she has given.

"They're going to protect Amelia from her brother in case he wakes up," she says in a grim tone. "Bervlin and Brandon will scout the village, make sure that bitch hasn't left an unknown accomplice behind, and find out who else she killed."

If one party member voices their disapproval for fear of spreading the news, Velstar will reply;

"They won't say anything until I get there."

She listens intently to the party, and doesn't say a word even as she takes the journal presented to her. Without any hesitation, she turns her back to you, walks into the fort, and puts her hand on the lock. The mechanism melts at the touch of her hand, and the book is unlocked. She opens it, only to be left immediately aghast at the sight of its contents.

The pages are blank. A little compartment has been cut out within the book, and one strange object was left in it; a spherical globe half the size of an apple. It looks like one of those snow globes people use as ornaments, but instead of water, it contains an equal measure of all eight Elements, all swirling into each other the way oil and water do not mix.

"What the...?"

Mihai sees the globe, squints, then makes an observation - "Mages have to convert Raw Magic into an Element to make it safe. The Wolf was being buffered from the Raw Magic by an Element. And her precious journal contains nothing but an Orb with the eight Elements..."

Noticing Velstar's expression, he approaches her.

"The thieves may know more. That, or their buyer will, for sure." - he affirms, implying his intent to dig deeper.

Konrad takes a moment to look at it. Because maybe that will help, right? "Well, in relation to what a contained element can be used for, what can it do? That's the real question."

And he might be about to tell you all - if you're(he's) lucky.

What can this thing do? How was it made?

"Too many people depend on us." - Mihai mutters - "That's what a man named Jacob wrote in his letter to the first Coins team, that the Wolf killed. It's all bloodied up, but you can tell the Oracle used to be one of his people before something happened and she went rogue. The one behind the theft of the journal was almost certainly him. He'll know what that thing is."

"Since the Coins didn't want Lavoie or the buyer to get their hands on the journal, then this buyer doesn't sound like someone we're prepared to meet yet," he replies, still "studying" the artifact. "We don't even know when he's coming, and I'm not really interested in risking spending more time away from our people than necessary."

"Those Adjuncts most likely were the buyer. Sent by the buyer, anyway. So yeah, we're not waiting around. I hope Molly will know how to contact them, but in the meantime." - he looks at Velstar - "Yen and Saemon need time. If the villagers go into a panic because of the Curse, even if we find a way to help them, it won't matter - they'll already be marked. Isn't there somewhere they can kept safe while we follow up on this?"

Steve and Konrad don't know how the hell this thing is possible.

This globe seems to have a vitreous surface to it, like if the Eight Elements present within it were encased within glass. However, you detect only magic, and no physical component. What's more curious is that the energy doesn't dissipate as it should, which indicates there's a structure behind it, and thus a purpose. After some more examination, you determine that the Elements are continuously being rewoven, which is unheard of since there is no weaver present to make this possible. Moreover, this weaving process is done without any raw magic present, which is contrary to all you've been told.

Weaving requires a weaver, and raw magic, to obtain either a mundane object or a magical item. The magical item is then activated by its owner to automatically siphon raw magic through them, turn it into one or many of the Elements and reach a predetermined effect. But this orb seems to have eliminated essential requirements to this process, and is in fact sustaining itself.

Velstar shakes her head.

"If they see me beside them, they won't panic. They would have no reason to."
