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.

Elyx, this is stupid, we should have let them get lost and find their way back on their own, and I hate you. Ignite would say with her arms crossed, heels were being dragged on the ground as the boy had to pull her by her collar of her shirt. It was quite a struggle in the morning to bring her out for this job, but he did not feel like doing anything fancy, and besides, once he had done this, he had been promised something amazing in the end. This being the easiest B rank job since all they had to do was navigate their way through the desert and find the same group of men that they had been able to pull out of the sand for the last six times. Plus, the job normally had some good reward in the end that heavily helped them advance. They were rich off of this job when they were B rank mages, though that sort of rich is nothing like it was now. This job probably paid 10,000 a shot, so 60,000 altogether when all of the previous attempts added up. That was enough to get rent for a month, which not that whole lot anymore. Instead however, he was able to find a lot better A rank jobs that paid five times as much, and with two of those out of the way, not only did he have rent for a month, but he was able to buy a few outfits for him and the She Phoenix. Maybe she was right, and this was a waster of time. But they can't confirm that just yet. They did not even know what the reward was for doing this job, on top of the jewels and the possible item at least. The She Phoenix did not even know of the notification that he had received for the surprise reward.
