The jobs description alone was more than enough for Zar end Evelyn to set off on their next mission immediately, grabbing her in his arms and whisking them away through the shadows to the Mysterious Canyon described in the job posting. When they neared the mouth of the canyon, they spotted the caravan camped just outside of it with noticeably damaged carts and injured mercenaries from the imps they mentioned. When Zar and Evelyn appeared into existence right before their eyes, their first logical course of action was to immediately arm themselves with whatever happened to be lying around at the time. Zar moved Evelyn behind him and approached the caravan with arms raised and slowly approached. His massive size did naught to dissuade the caravaneer's fear of his looming presence but hoped the flyer he reached for would suit them. As he pulled out the flyer, the Caravan Master approached him and snatched it away, nodding as he read through it. "Eyup. This is definitely our job posting. Alright lads, weapons and utensils down. They're here to take care of our Imp problem." The Caravan Master's words brought his men to heel as they placed their weapons down and continued their various tasks they were working on before the two mages arrived.
He motioned for them to take a seat before him to which they both complied. "As you may have already guessed, we're the two mages from Sabertooth and we've come to take care of you Imp problem, for the modest fee you displayed of course," said Zar, scanning the canyon for any signs of the tiny devils. The Caravan Master expressed his delight in Zar's approval of the reward amount; it was probably all they were willing to lose on the price of the goods they were selling. His face became that of a greedy merchant, grinning wildly and rubbing his palms together as he spoke. "Ah, excellent Master Wizard. Thank goodness you arrived when you did. Any longer and we'd have been late on our shipment. Now, all you need to do is was straight into the canyon and take the first left. The little imp bastards should come after you immediately since that's where they ambushed us the first time. Be warned, however, we laid eyes upon their boss and he is quite the menacing bloke; a Dark Imp much larger than the others and as black as the night sky. We wouldn't have seen him had it not been for his glowing red eyes gazing into our very souls. If you're still keen on helping us, the best bet to get them all soon would be to leave immediately as the sun will be setting any minute now."
Zar and Evelyn rose to their feet and bowed to the merchant. "Thank you for explaining the situation to us, Merchant. We will take our leave of you," His words carrying the weight of his conviction as they passed through his vocal cords.
It wasn't long after Evelyn and Zar entered the canyon that things became eerily quiet suddenly. Almost as soon as silence fell over the canyon, child-like giggles echoed across the canyon for what seemed like miles. The child-like cackling was unnatural and it was apparent what the source of these ungodly noises meant; The imps had them surrounded.
