Job Requirements: Only A rank and higher may participate or a B-rank with a higher rank. Must protect the treasure hunter. Must roll a boss before before the 50th post.
Job Location: Haunted Castle
A treasure hunter had come upon a treasure map that leads to the location of the The Dancing Lady. This is a silver statuette of a woman dancing with its hands raised high up. Rumors has it that upon the light of the lunar eclipse the statue turns into a spirit that grants the owner a single wish. Lunar eclipse's happen once in a hundred years and it just happens that one is about to happen in 50 days so the client is offering a lot of jewels. The location is in haunted castle and the Boss is a Huge Minotaur monster.
And here is the catch, the client insists that he comes along on the journey and it is your duty to protect him at all cost. Must encounter the boss that hoards the Idol and witness how the client summons the spirit and have his wish granted.
Warning, the client is extremely curious and tends to attract undesirables.(The person posting every 5 posts must include in his/her story how the client wanders off and stumbles upon a monster hence triggering a dice roll)

Shadow Eruption (C-ranked): By extending his arm, the Lord can cause a pool of darkness 2 and a half metres in diameter to appear beneath his target for a second. Once that time passes, a pillar of darkness will erupt from it, dealing damage and dazing the person hit, meaning that he will not be able to defend against the next attack aimed at them.

The best part of waking up, so some say, is going back to sleep. Whoever had the chance to say that must be the luckiest people alive. Elyx had a hard time being aable to sleep, every morning started off the same. Ignite would wake up at the early three, then pick the job that promised either the most jewels. She was a treasure hunter after all, aiming for the items that pleased her the most, then forced the boy to go on the jobs so that she would have so much money. This job was no different, she ran into his room with two items in her hands. In the left was a paper, the right was a pillow. Elyx! The She-Phoenix exclaimed as she zipped over towards the boy, then began to smack the pillow against his face over and over. With her strength, it was enough to force his eyes awake. Argh! Ignite! Stop it! Just read the damn job already! That hurts! The Violinist admitted, saying that a pillow was enough to hurt him. Still though, his eardrums felt like they were going to just simply... Pop, any second from now. Ignite let out a sheepish smile as she then sat down on his bed before looking at the paper. Elyx leaned his body forward to see the job.
The violinist and the She Phoenix both sat side by side as they were reading what the job actually was. It turned out, it paid a heavy amount of jewels. 25,000... This is what the A rank jobs are like it seems, the boy was not sure about how he should react to this. 25,000 jewels would almost cover the amount of jewels he needed in order to pay for his rent. He did not know what to do with his jewels now, but now he planned to save them up for something good. He knew that if he kept on spending, he would never have anything truly big. There was once a point in which he worked enough jobs to not even worry, but one big mistake in spending can put the both of Elyx and Ignite in a terrible spot. Now... Though it paid heavily, there was probably a reason why the job paid so many jewels. Plus, there is an item promised at the end, but the boy was unable to confirm whatever a... Mirror Mask was.
All right, pain in the ass, we're no longer in Black Rose. We need to look for our client right? The boy said, the both of them traveling side by side, because timeskip powers. They were at the edge of Black Rose, quite a distance away from Clover Town. That was their destination, not that they knew the town that well anyways.
