Job Description: After entering a town market you see a concert stage being set up for Beanstalk and the Peapods, a local group consisting of a short, gnome like man and two beautiful Elven women. Beanstalk instantly recognizes you as a famous Wizard and asks you to say a few words to the growing crowd before his show starts. Swiftly he ushers you on his stage and places a voice lacrima so everyone can hear you. As you start to speak the growing crowd starts to drop and a tower rises up out of the ground, exposing only the top of it and the trap door leading down. Beanstalk and his girls swiftly run down the trap door with a gleeful smile on their face. Give chase to them and find out why they gave you the deadly voice lacrima to summon the tower...
Arrow trap- The walls of the room slide trap panels back and launch ten arrows that deal C rank damage at blinding speeds straight at you for three posts. Watch out because that's 30 arrows in total.
Minatour: At last you have arrived at the center room of the tower where a large pillar rests in the center of the room that has a space for the orb of the world you got in Gold Rodger's tomb. The bad news is that two Minatours with hell fire maces and large shields await to defend this pillar at all costs. Each one requires ten hits of the highest ranking wizard in the groups rank to bring down and they have the following attacks.
- Hell fire smash:

For once the re-quip mage known as Aliarey Casady would find herself in the town of Talonia, a town where many other guildless mages like her often went. She liked it there, thinking it was a lot more laid back than the towns where popular guilds settled, and she had that feeling of fitting in. The jobs were a lot better in other towns however which was why she rarely stayed in Talonia for long. The place that occasionally brought her to the town was not the beautiful sight of the gigantic Solemn Park. It was not the loud and popular Talonia Arena where mages from all over dueled each other. It was also certainly not for the safe haven of Ald Ruhn, although the fact only the guildless could enter was a fact she thought was rather interesting. While the bar was a fun place to be at times it was also not the favored place of the gun mage. No. The place that caught her attention every time she visited was the town’s Black Market.
“Give me a discount?” Aliarey was in the middle of bargaining her way into a new weapon. It was actually a type that she was sure was quite illegal to own, but that was what made it so cool! She had to have it! The problem was that it was way too expensive for her. Her gloved hands moved to be in front of her as they came together to form a praying position. A large smile was on her face as she begged the seller of the weapon to lower the price.
“I told you before, Alia, and I’ll keep on telling. I. Don’t. Do. Discounts.” The old man shook his head as he had to once again tell the young woman no. It was a ritual by that point. She would come to town, check out his new stock, notice she can’t afford it, and then beg for the discount she never got. Perhaps she thought he’d get tired of it eventually and just give it to her. “Why don’t you just join a guild or something? Don’t they have better paying jobs you can take so you can finally stop bothering me about prices?”
Aliarey scoffed at his words. Her? In a guild? They’d probably kick her out even if she did want to be in one. Even then she had no idea which one she would of wanted to be in. They all had some sort of theme or goal going that didn‘t match up with hers. Was there one centered around gathering Jewels and spending it all on some super weapon of doom? Doubtful. “If I was in a guild I wouldn’t even be able to buy these weapons in the first place!” She yelled and slammed her hands on the counter of the display.
“So I’ll never see you here again? Even better! Please, go join one!” The old man laughed and waved her off, turning his attention to another more potential buyer.
“Uggghhh!” Alairey’s head dropped as she slammed her fists on the counter again. She’d be leaving empty handed yet again. Greedy bastard. Maybe next time he would consider going with an IOU. He’d get the full payment eventually so in a weird way it was a more accepting offer than a discount, right? The thought went into her mental storage for later. Now she needed to find something else to do since there was little point leaving town already. She turned and left the weapon market and was quickly caught by a wave of people moving towards some sort of stage set up. It wasn’t a new sight really, but for some reason people were getting really excited over it.
Aliarey followed the crowd and took a place to stand and watch. Her ears caught parts of conversations mentioning something about Beanstalk and Peapods. What was that about? Was it some sort of weird take on Jack and the Beanstalk? Was there going to be an awesome gigantic giant that would smash the place apart for the real thrill audience experience?! That would be a show she would stay to watch! Aliarey felt a wave of excitement hit her and she couldn’t help but hop in place a bit as she waited for the reveal. It was then a short man that reminded her of one of those garden gnomes came onto the stage and introduced himself as the one called Beanstalk. Two elven women followed and they were introduced as Peapods. “Oh,” Aliarey muttered as all traces of excitement painfully left her and was replaced with absolute disappointment. She should of known the best shows wouldn’t be free. Well, it was time to leave and find a place to stay for the time being, or at least that was the plan as she turned her body and took a step away from the crowd.
“Are my eyes deceiving me? Is that the famous guildless gun mage I’ve heard so much about?” A small male voice called out from the stage. Aliarey stopped and turned her blue gaze to glance at the stage. “That is you, isn’t it? Alia I think it was?” The voice had come from the gnome-like man, who was now pointing at her. It was strange for someone to call her out by name when she did not know them. Last she checked she wasn‘t exactly famous either. “Aliarey actually.” The gnome man snapped his fingers at the correction. “Right, right.” He jumped from the stage and ran towards her only to grab her hand and start to drag her towards the stage. “Say a few words for the crowd around here, won’t ya? They’ll love having someone as famous as you start the show.”
Aliarey pressed her feet down to halt the dragging motion and yanked her arm away from the man. Had the guy lost his marbles? She wasn’t famous. She was just an average mage working to fill her own pockets. “Go find one of those world class heroes or something. I’m not famous.”
Beanstalk was shocked at first but his face transformed into one a mischievous character would own.
“Are you not the woman that stopped the murderer Jacob Goodnight?”
“I might have done that.”
“Did you not help that old granny find her favorite book within a labyrinth of doom filled with short evil hellions that brought absolute terror and was guarded by the very devil himself?
“That’s an odd way of putting a trip to the library.”
“What about the time you defeated the mighty Gingerbread Man and became known as the Conqueror of all Evil and Obnoxious Pastry Delicacies?!”
“I am pretty sure that is not a thing.”
“Do you not recall the time you saved the world from the monstrous beast that was the five foot chicken?!”
“That’s…wait you know about that? Hell how do you know about ANY of that period? Is my dumb iLac set to record everything I do or something?”
“Worry not how I know. Now come, and say a few words to my audience!”
Aliarey found herself once again dragged towards the stage. The crowd around had been watching the conversation and were quite amused by it all. Most already knew who Aliarey was and even though she was famous by no means they pretended she was just to be what she considered as annoying. They cheered and shouted her name to which the woman could only sigh and face palm. Really? She was seriously going to do this? They could of at least paid to get her autograph if they were going to go this far.
Before she knew it she was standing in front of a voice lacrima. All eyes were on her and a silence came over the area as people waited for her to speak.
