Player Requirements: Be Fred and Almyra

Job Location: Mountains east of Oak Town
Job Description: Frederick has been given the task of retrieving an artifact for an archeologist from a lost temple, which has only recently been rediscovered. The temple is guarded by the spirits of past followers of the chaos goddes Eris, stone guardians, and three doors that require skilled mages to open. He has picked up Almyra to help him with the task. Together they must survive the guardians of the temple and reach the inner sanctum to retrieve the artifact. Little do they know that the archeologist is actually a chaos theorist who has abandoned his quest for balance, and now wants only domination.
Weak: Minor Spirit x2- This weak spirit deals A-rank damage with its entropic attacks. With each attack it has a chance to deal S-rank or B-rank damage instead. Destroyed by 1 S-rank hit or equivalent. These enemies are not affected by Chaos Theory magic and cannot damage chaos theorists.
Normal: Major Spirit- This spirit has the same entropic attack that minor spirit does, but can also heal Stone Guardians for up to 1 S-rank damage every 3 posts. 2 S-rank or equivalent hits will banish this spirit. These enemies are not affected by Chaos Theory magic and cannot damage chaos theorists.
Strong: Stone Guardian- This giant living statue has little in the ways of magic, but can perform a crushing blow that deals S-rank damage to a single target, or stomp to knock all enemies within 5 meters airborn. The combined damage of being launched and landing is 10% of health, regardless of rank (5% if victims somehow soften the landing.) Stone Guardians can take up to 3 S-rank hits before going down. Additionally, they can use entropic magic to reduce the duration of any debuffs they are afflicted with by 3 posts. These enemies are immune to Chaos Theory magic.
Boss: Stone Guardian and 2 Major Spirits
Special: As you reach the inner sanctum, the two realize they were followed. The archeologist who hired them is actually a fallen chaos theorist. This S-ranked mage takes 8 S-rank hits to kill. Every post he can hit with an entropic blast that deals 1 S-rank damage. He can afflict an enemy with a damage over time that deals 2 S-rank damage over 3 posts. Additionally he can cleanse himself of magical debuffs once every 4 posts. As an ultimate attack once in the thread, he can create a massive entropic blast that rips apart matter itself, destroying half of the sanctum and dealing 5 S-ranked hits of damage. He wields a morningstar that can hit for 1 B-rank of damage. He is immune to chaos theory spells and his spells cannot effect chaos theorists.
Reward: 7000 jewels
Almyra woke up shortly before dawn and went downstairs in the inn to eat breakfast before departing with Frederick. They left shortly after eating, heading west. The morning air was cool, but the sun was warm at their backs. It would be a nice day for traveling. Almyra walked along happily beside Frederick, occasionally reaching out to try to hold his hand as they walked. She would happily hold it the whole journey if he allowed her, though if he didn't allow her to on the first attempt, she would try a few more times to do so, but would eventually give up after the third or fourth attempt. She looked around, admiring the scenery as they walked. She would observe with Amor Fati, but decided against it, knowing she would practically be blinded by Frederick if she tried.
It was an hour or two into their journey when she would tug on Frederick's sleeve if they weren't already holding hands, if they were she would simply state his name before asking her question. She had yet to be told the details of the job they were going on. "Frederick. Do you know anything else about this temple?" She asked, partly out of her normal curiosity and partly out of wanting to know if it would be dangerous or scary. She was a bit nervous that it could be very dangerous, after all, the archeologist had hired someone as powerful as Frederick to go to the temple. She was afraid that she would just be dead weight, a liability for Frederick. Then again, he seemed a smart man, and certainly had experience, so perhaps he saw something in her that could be of use.
