"Yes and no. While it is a notable a poisonous substance, I use it solely for the medical prospects." Malcolm went on to explain quite happily. It was becoming clear it was dangerous to speak shop around this healer with the risk of a lesson or lecture around every corner. "The same toxins found in deathcaps that affect the nervous system are also brilliant at killing off unwanted bacterial infections and fungus. You just have to be careful with the application and ensure it's diluted to the point where if it does entire the blood steam the worst that'll happen is the patient may feel some dumbness in the affected area."

Malcolm's tone and expression shifted very quickly once he'd finished his chain of thought, recalling Phaing's wording and the possible implications of what she may have been asking.

He seemed somewhat offended by the concept of being confused for a brewer of poisons. He leans in close to the pair and his voice seems to lower to a deeper sombre tone. "I assure you both, you won't find any such substance in my store. Nor will I tolerate either of you experimenting in such a distasteful practice should either of you wish to continue studying alongside me. Am I understood?"
Stryder221 wrote:"Speaking of the wolf, though..." This sight was what had led to him nudging Malcolm, motioning over to a certain Keidran, waving to the innkeeper before heading out. The guy stuck out like a sore thumb, which probably meant his sudden nudge was unnecessary.
"Hmm?" Malcolm hummed, turning back to catch the last glimpse of the wolf leaving the establishment, suddenly bringing joy and excitement flooding back into his cheeks. "Right, well come on then. What are we waiting for?" Malcolm ask as he quickly shuffles out his seat and starts heading to follow the exotic visitor.

Phaing's eyes go wide, she wasn't expecting this. However, she leans right into the confrontation, and hisses back at him;
"Yeah, I understand, and if it's illegal here all ya gotta do is say so. But answer me this before you go all high-horse; if some hulikng gob of stench-ridden leather that has 3 pounds to your 1 pins you down with the express intention of raping and possibly killing you for fun, wouldn't an edge of some kind seem like a GOOD thing to have? If you have never had that experiance, its even more unpleasant that you can imagine." She sighs and half-closes her eyes. "Just don't look at me like there is something wrong with me, okay?"

No, but you might want to nudge Phaing, she is slow to come down off her confrontational-mode.

Umm... just like that?
Well, anyone else would be upset that this moment happened now, with her looking like a ragamuffin fresh from a tussle in the alley, but Phaing just nods and gets up without a thought, let a long a 2nd thought. She is bringing up the rear, to be sure, but right there with you.

The moment the tone of the conversation had changed for the darker, Lei had gone almost completely silent. Phaing getting confrontive and showing her hypothetical situation hadn't helped matters much either, in that regard.
He was no stranger to such things... The scholar had run into unsavory types as well in his lifetime; Barbaric, blood-thirsty beasts looking for any reason at all to loot and kill. Just thinking about his first encounter was enough to put a dark look on his face, a look that didn't belong to one usually so friendly.

By the time his companions had stood to follow the wolf, had tagged along without another word, staying behind Phaing for the time being.

El Dorado

A chase after non existing dreams and hopes, the dream of fortune and fame to all be in your hand and control. It was a dangerous search and hunt, a dangerous world you would enter and chase your entire life to never find, die unhappy, unpleased and unsatisfied. Greed would consume you, kill your joy for life, your one and main reason to live was to find the treasure, the selected target marked with an X on the map. Never would you get far, never would you find what you wanted or were looking for. You mainly cast away your life for a chest of gold, a setup of dreams and hopes that never were real. Gold diggers and the like search for this their entire life.


And if. If it existed and they ever found it, ever stood with it in their hands, earned and got the gold, the treasure and fame. What would they do with it? Where would they go, what would they live for? They found their dreams, they found their hopes, the lived out the life they searched, they stand with everything at hand, there would be no greed left, you would have it all, what should become of your life then? You lived only to chase the treasure, and you won it, you got the beautiful girl, the gold and fame.



Game over.


Life has ended, that's what happens. And some in this world knew it. This...place was no El Dorado; no city of gold, no life of gold or purpose, there was nothing here. No gold, no fame, there was just the game, the tricking game to lure you into the danger of the land. The Golden Marked Canine saw the truth now, he could see behind the big screen on the wall. He could see how it worked. It was disgusting. That was all it was, it wasn't mighty or pretty. The Templar had been searching for El Dorado for centuries...and even with their vast influence and connections they couldn't find it. And they never would...


Not if Julius could help it. And as he walked through the streets of this lovely little town full of mismatched misfits and mongrels, those bright bi colored eyes would flick back and forth cautiously. This town...these 'people'. It all put him on edge...to be honest he had previously hoped that he would of been kidnapped by now but it seemed the omnipotent Templar were not as swift as he had previously intended...still, it mattered little. If that human who he met at the bar was telling the truth, than word of his arrival would reach them eventually. And as he reached the Apothecary his gaze fell upon the 'Closed' sign and instantly his ear twitched in annoyance. He was running low on his medication and needed a refill before things kicked off. And so he stood in the middle of the street, staring for a long while before curving his gaze to the side in the direction he had come from only to spot...very familiar faces.

Julius grimaced. Ignoring them, he simply took a seat on a bench in front of the shop and leaned back...crossing a leg over his knee and waiting. Surly the owner had to stroll by eventually right?

Malcolm wasn't far behind the exotic wolf, having been lagging behind him a short distance since having left the tavern; assuming Phaing and Lei weren't too far behind him.

It was certainly a surprise to find the wolf waiting for him in front of his own store, however. It was certainly the last thing he expected.

"H-Hey, excuse me, Sir." Malcolm called out to him from a short distance. "Do you have a minute?"
