The man looked at me like I was half-insane. I looked up at him. Another midlander trying to peddle his wares to a world that didn’t need them but certainly picked them up like their lives depended on it.
“No really. Over there we have Black, Red and White mages. Over here we have Astrologians and Scholars and myself, I’m a Summoner. So what does ‘Blue’ do that these others do not?” I asked the man, a little lost in his sales pitch and getting frustrated at the misdirection involved.
He stammered a bit more about some Aetherical energies and finally offered me the contents of his sale for free, proof to satisfy my curiosity and advertise for him. Okay. He had me at free. I took it, I went on my way and quietly back at the Free Company house I opened the box. So much blue. Blue hat, blue boots. A soulstone, that was also blue, and a book bound in some kind of blue leather.
I packed this all away for later. I had important things to do first as I summoned Carbuncle to my side. “Come friend, adventures await us at Costa Del Sol!”
