Sorry, there was not a good letter chain already going to post this under, so I am making yet another thing to read separately, my apologies. First. A few of us have sat down over the past few days and come up with a rather viable plan of engagement for constructing defenses and funneling Alverez away from our sacred sites and into a place where we can conduct our necessary counter attacks and rituals(if needed). I will have more information on a private map that I have on my person for safekeeping, but it is open to interpretation and suggestion if we find a better way to accomplish our goal. Good strategy requires an open but still focused mind, after all. Second. Based on Elric's already protective ritual structure, there was still the chance of inherent harm to the participants. I believe I have a tool that may assist in further mitigating that, but I will need help from those that can heal, and resurrect, or are otherwise in tune with spirits and can see them. We will be attempting a summoning ritual, and using the powers of the object to create attuned items or some other means of granting the boon (I suggested bottles of Dragon's Breath, to pour shots of liquid courage for all involved) that will hopefully allow for excess harmful energy to be siphoned off the participants and diffused. I would like to gather any assistance I can for this, so if you fit the aforementioned parameters, please come find me in the Inn, I do have to try and do this before 2 bells in the morning, as I have a shift at the Bank and it would delay the rite until sometime Saturday morning/afternoon.
Third. I command a great arsenal of spells, and the means to cast several protections many times. I would invite any scholars to come and fill your tomes with my knowledge(and anyone else who would freely offer theirs) to aid in scroll creation, and I will use my abilities to protect as many people who will be scavenging resources and executing missions for the town as I can. If you engage the enemy forces, please be safe, and bring us back reports of how they fight so we can modify our protection castings accordingly. My apologies again for the lateness of my posting, I think best in the pre-dawn hours when most of Travance is asleep. See You Soon, Therion

I'm with you. Arriving back late tonight.
If I recall, one of the souls is an Amethyst. I volunteer to help, however I may.
