Description: Sandstorms have been appearing frequently, revealing lost treasure amongst the valleys of domes; attracting treasure hunters of all sorts. A traveling merchant was walking through the Forgotten Desert with a small team of treasure hunters hoping to find something buried amongst the ruins. A sandstorm arose around the merchant's group and they became under attack. The merchant's team was slaughtered; where as he managed to escape. He spent days in the desert, lost, until finally he came across other travelers and hitched a ride to the nearest village. Once in the village, the merchant was rushed to the hospital where a stinger was found embedded into his spine. The stinger was that of a scorpions', and he was given antitoxin. The merchant, now said to be hysterical from being in the sun too long and poison from a scorpion, is trying to get people's attention about the monsters hiding in the sandstorms in the streets of the village. He also mentions about a valuable treasure amongst the ruins where his group was allegedly attacked; and is willing to pay for anyone to help him go reclaim it as long as they are understanding the stakes.

Boss: Chimera - a legendary creature and lord of the desert. It's body consists of the body and head lion, the head of a goat, and the head and body of a serpent for a tail.

This creature's presence is said to bring abnormal heat waves in the already blistering hot desert, as well as vicious sandstorms.

Elyx and Ignite were both kicking their feet over the roof this time. They actually had a pretty good view of the whole guild from up top of here, it was like everyone shrunk. What made this illusion even better was that they could both pretend to be stomping on people. Elyx was biting onto a chocolate bar happy, a music note appearing above his head to show how happy he was about the current place they are right now. He could imagine how much trouble he would be in if Nea caught him doing this in Shadelle. He never tried it since he was too good of a person to disobey, but here, no one was here to watch him be free like this. The boy finally felt like his old self again, he was able to cure his insanity and learned how to tame it when the time came. He fought off all of the mental pain that took way longer than forever to fix. It was like he was a new person again, but memories and feelings still remained. Just because the pain was not there any longer does not mean he was quite ready to forgive. But the clear difference has been made due to him showing his happiness like a medal once again. Oh how proud Nimpha would be. In the meantime however, he was just going to have to just be himself like he used to. Ignite liked seeing this side of him as well, mainly because she loved chocolate and was able to focus on the chocolate rather than the jewels. It was a nice feeling for the moment... And then someone had to bring a job request with her. Well, at least the moment was good enough to get in a happy mood. They were going to the desert once again to gamble with the chests of treasure. They have gotten some mad amounts of jewels with this anyways, so it would not be a problem to do this sort of thing once again. The boy placed his two blades in his hands as he looked down. The both of them jumped from above and hit the ground with a mighty thud, causing the villagers around them to jump with startled facial expressions. Eyx could not help but smile at their reaction as he stood up straight, then smiled at them so casually. From there, it was all priceless on how everyone else wanted to talk to him. Ignite had to keep him in check by getting a bodyguard to get the people back, not harming them, but just making sure that Elyx was able to get out of the crowd and focus on the job at hand.
