Congratulations. For whatever reason you have ended up in a very popular vacation resort and spa. Maybe you are here for that relaxing time an experienced mage such as yourself needs, maybe you just finished up another mission and your client happened to be staying there, or maybe some portal magic went wonky and you appeared from out of nowhere. Whatever brought you here doesn't really matter. What does matter is that things start going into meltdown at some point during your stay. The nearby volcano has erupted and the resort is now being invaded by pesky and powerful elementals of all sizes. Naturally it only makes sense to help clear them out so everyone can get back to their vacation, right? Assuming there is even a resort left to vacay in. The eruption itself must also be stopped before the resort is lost under a river of lava and fogs of smoke. The mega rich company that owns the resort is offering to pay a good deal of jewels for those that help out in this crisis towards their resort. Saving their guests is also a thought too...
The elementals come in all shapes and sizes. Starting from cute little doll sized elementals that try to look deadly but fail to giant elementals that are the size of houses. What they are made of varies between fire, smoke, lava, and steam. Be careful though. The bigger they are then the more power and strength they have.
Those that travel to the volcano will find an even larger foe waiting for them. If the volcano is ignored then it will eventually pay a visit to the resort to eliminate those that are destroying its kind and interrupting THEIR vacation.
Reward: 155k Jewels

The sniffles of depression could be heard echoing across the house as Aiyana awoke from the nightmare that had just plagued her for the whole night. Ever since the chain of events that had led her to join Lamia Scale had happened she had been trying to readjust her life. It had been difficult so far as nothing seemed to help with the sadness and depression she had been going through. At one point she had thought about killing herself to ease the pain, but even that option was not possible because she was a strange hybrid of a human mind and celestial spirit body. If she died she would simply reappear in the celestial spirit realm as if nothing had even happened. The nine-tailed fox had eventually found a small success in the form of alcohol and drugs, though it seemed that only the stronger ends for both seemed to do much of anything for the celestial spirit and her natural tolerance for it all. The nightmares of seeing her family dead, her lover disappearing without a trace, and the remembrance of what her father had repeatedly done to her while growing up all seemed to combine into a monstrous labyrinth or terror that always seemed to cause her to wake up a mess of tears and snot that no one would ever find attractive. It was probably why she had not actually tried for a serious relationship in so long, simply going for whatever showed any attraction to her physically for a little fun rather than try to get close to any of them to learn more about them. If they started to get too close to her she would drop them like a hot potato and keep going with the others she had kept hidden from each of them. The vicious cycle would likely continue if left unchecked, though that would mean someone actually caring enough to want to try would have to learn about it and do something. The wizard saint had no intention of anyone finding out, even though she knew she needed the help of someone that cared, and thus her attitude of late had been a bit on the stressed and irritated side when dealing with others within the guild.
It was because of this irritation that Gisen had recommended the female go on a vacation, one that also involved the other ace going with her so they could both relax and actually meet in person for the first time. They had met before, sure, but they had never really spoken or gotten to know each other. Now they were supposed to be going on a vacation to some volcanic resort and spa where she was mean to enjoy herself and relax. Hopefully, the two would have different rooms so Aiyana could do what she was used to doing now. The drugs, the sex, and the alcohol were not likely to be something Samira Nassar would approve of being done at any point in time so it would be easier to do in a separate room rather than trying to hide and sneak it while they shared the same one. Not to mention that Aiyana was also older than the other girl, and really did not want to hear any kind of 'you should know better' speech about her bad habits if it came down to that.
Wiping her eyes with the back of her hand, Aiyana would clear her vision before getting up so she could blow her nose and get herself ready for her trip. The usual beautifying tasks would be done as she brushed her hair and tails while she also put up the illusion of clothes around herself as she always did. Given she was going to a resort she would leave her weapons and armor here at home, and her pet would be allowed free reign of the place while also guarding the place just in case anyone decided to break into the popular mage's home sweet home. Once she had made sure she had everything she needed, including a small stash of drugs and alcohol in the travel pack she had made in a small purse she had on her shoulder, the woman would leave her home that lied within Hargeon Town's upper scale housing and begin her trek to the ports in town. This walk would lead her through the various points of the town where stalls held various items for sales as well as multiple shops that caused her to get distracted as she made her way across town. The town had grown since it had been rebuilt, Lamia Scale being the reason for it happening, after the attack from the massive attack from the aquatic beings that had hit out of nowhere for no reason. The 'Rising Tides' as they were called were all but a distant memory as the now well-defended port town had nearly doubled in population as people flocked back to the place continuously. A stop at a bakery would result in the woman buying a few baguettes, intending to share the warm and fresh bread items with Samira, before she quickly bought a small thing of chocolates from a stall just before she finally made her way to the ports.
The boat that was supposed to take them to the resort was a large one with a lot of magical and lacrima based additions and modifications to make it a marvel to behold. It was crazy that Lamia Scale could afford to pay for the two of them to have a two-week-long vacation to a place like they were going, but Aiyana was not going to ignore pampering even in her well-hidden publicly depression. The wizard saint would stand there in awe, waiting for the other ace of the guild she was in to show up, and slowly eat one of the chocolates she had bought as ears and tails twitched in excitement. This week would be fun, or it would be absolutely terrible, but either way it would be something new. That much she could appreciate it, especially when she was paying for absolutely none of it this time. Free was great, and free spa treatment was even better!
