    I will keep that in mind, though Bolten will be paying a visit to this Rufus fellow first. Since Z is currently busy, maybe they can stumble into each other over the next few days.

    I just need a price tag for all of this.

    The actual long sword needs to be commissioned. I'm sure it needs to be masterwork, and I doubt the materials for the sword alone will be cheap.

    Then there's the gems. And then help channeling the spells into them, and maybe help crafting the gems, too. Perhaps members from the rangers guild would help with this free of charge?

    Then there's also the scrolls, if the captain wants a backup option.

    Just like.. need a price on all the raw materials, plus labor that has to be outsourced.
    Alright, I'm just going to split this up in the various parts, and for each part I'll give the 'full' price. That is, the price you'd have to pay if you outsourced it. Making it yourself means you're down to half cost or less for materials.

    copper-mythril alloy masterwork longsword: 2400 gp (affected by the current scarcity in myhtril, normally this'd be a fair bit cheaper).

    Gem 1,2 and 3 are 800gp each. (cost split evenly between cutting the gem and enchanting it, if you need help with only one of those).

    Gem 4 is 2000 gp (1200 gp for acquiring a suitable gem, 600 for enchanting, 200 for charging it with positive energy).

    The scrolls for the spells in the first three gems would be 525 gp each.

    Sounds good to me

    Also unrelatedly I am ready to move to the next day so I can craft more things.

    @Sonderjye, just a quick bit of background, there isn't really an 'adventurer's guild'. You can find the headquarters for a variety of mercenary groups in the port district, but most of what you'd think of as 'adventurer business' is handled by the Ranger's guild, and the guildhouse here is their main location.

    However, given that most of the serious threats are at the empire's borders, this is also why the guildhouse was so quiet when Shandara visited. The senior command staff is based there, as are generally 1-2 ready units (each unit consisting of 6 rangers) just in case, and then generally 1-2 more units that have returned to recuperate after a mission, but the vast majority of Rangers is always out and about at the edges of the empire.

    Is there something like an explorer's guild for whoever explores the old ruins and whatnot? If not I'm happy just to head to the ranger's guild HQ.

    There is. The Imperial Cartographer's guild has a major office and archive in the harbor district.

    I think the biggest bottleneck we have is the crafting time for the sword, right?

    I'm estimating it could take like two months to make the sword, assuming the uninflated cost is 1000 gp and using alternate crafting rules, managing 16 gp a day??

    Still seems to take a long time just to make a freaking mundane sword....

    Yeah, I'm going to say that it won't take that long. About 2-3 weeks feels about right for a master-smith with a good workshop and a handful of capable assistants sounds more realistic.

    @Elbeyon, the stairs lead down, not up :P

    The stairs themselves are not trapped, and from your quick magical peek into the hallway beyond you can see that the floor and ceiling seem fine, but the walls are completely covered in enchantments. That's all your quick peek tells you though, and further information will require further study.

    Just as a headsup I'm handing in my thesis in 2 weeks time so my posting will be eratic these next few weeks. If you want to do a time skip Z will do a mix on putting in work to make a drink using the memory stuff and make the memory devices previously discussed.

    Good luck with your thesis! I remember being a mess time-wise when I was finishing off mine as well.

    Best of luck to you! Also familiar with how much of a nailbiter that can be.

    @Detess I remember reading the stairs went down. I'm not sure why my auto-pilot had the stairs going up. I remember thinking how the stairs going down is a good idea to prevent access from the second floor. The vault being underground is generally more secure from attacks.

    Edit I thought my post might allow me to search for traps without triggering them. Zeal will get as close as she needs to disable a trap!

    @Elbeyon, try as you might, you can't find any way to get a tool underneath the tiles. Nor for that matter is there any sort of give to them, suggesting that they might, in fact, be just a normal floor.

    There aren't any obvious magical symbols or the like on the mirror, but the double mirror walls do look very unnerving even when seen through your own hand mirror. You can see reflections upon reflections upon reflections of yourself going both to your left and right. There is no obvious off-button or other way to shut down the magic aura you perceive on the mirror, but so far at least nothing bad has happened either.

    Note: The mirrors give off auras of the enchantment and the conjuration schools. Quite powerful auras too.

    @DeTess Ah! So, they might not be traps. Hm. Could I roll spellcraft to try to identify the mirrors if they are magic items?

    You can. Doing so through your mirror reflection trick will make it a lot more difficult than if you directly observe them, however.
