    Our adventure begins now!

    You arrive in the city of Meralda (Viridian City counterpart) searching for the party of adventurers that asked you to come. All of Ariune is on edge after a young duke of the house of Veron started showing a near obsessive interest in finding and reassembling the Creator's Blade. Rumors have been flying on the streets and through the taverns that the duke may even have the ambition to release Necrozma.

    The message you received indicates that the adventurers are waiting inside the Emerald Flower, the local tavern.

    From your current location in the city square, you can:

    --Go north into the market district (the inn and the temple are also here)
    --Go east towards the entertainment district (the tavern, the arena, and the Tower of Life are here)
    --Go south towards Mayul (the Pallet Town counterpart)
    --Go west towards the civic district (government offices, the adventurer's guild, and a post office is here)

    Ariel looked around in amazement as her surroundings. She had never been to a place like this. There were all of these big... things everywhere. She was pretty sure that they were called buildings, but she couldn't quite tell. There were people walking around all over the place and everything just seemed so foreign and exciting.

    A moment later and Ariel was bored. She's taken in the excitement and now she just wanted to move on to something else. She pulled out the letter she had pulled off of that guy that she had found wandering through the swamp were she collected ingredients for her potions. She could barely read what it said but was able to make out the gist of it. Something about meeting by a green flower.

    Ariel looked up from the letter again and scanned her surroundings. Flowers were growing all over the place in almost every color that she had ever seen. The meeting place could have been anywhere. She reached into her bag and pulled out a small vial of dark, amber-ish liquid and chugged down its contents. After placing the empty vial back in her bag, she set off in a random direction (east). Now that she had taken a potion of fate, there was no way that she wouldn't be able to find the green flower.

    The east district was the entertainment district. Contests and tournaments regularly took place in the arena, and there were a number of theaters if one wished to see the latest hit plays and musicals. Overlooking it all was the majestic Tower of Life--the final challenge for Pokémon tamers that dreamed of competing in the Grand Tournament in the Aiiro City. Gary, the Keeper of the Crest of Life, was a tough but fair fighter.

    Nestled within the buildings in the district was a stone building with a sign depicting a green flower. The Emerald Flower was a common spot to see a wandering minstrel, or even bands of minstrels if you were lucky.

    Amara walked into the city of Meralda, forcibly, more or less. Her friend, Ajil, a Mismagius, found a letter stuck in a tree just near her house in the mountains. It told her something about an Emerald Flower and that she must find it, then enter it. What was strange is that she followed the letter's wishes as she was now in Meralda, surrounded by a lot of people. It didn't help that she always took her staff with her, and thus, she was given strange looks by some of the locals.

    Amara turned to her companion, Mismagius, asking her a question. "Exactly where are we supposed to find this flower, Ajil?"

    [Uhm... I don't really know. Maybe you should start by asking around the city first?] Ajil sent her message to Amara through her mind. With a new idea in sight, the only thing that Amara needs to do is to put the plan in action... Which is easier said than done. She went east to find someone who can help her.

    The area where she was now seemed even more wondrous and exciting to Ariel than where she had been before. There were all kinds of color and the music... it was like nothing she had ever heard before. Was it really possible for so many different ideas and cultured to exist in the world?

    Ariel spotted a sign hanging above the doorway of one of the buildings lining the street. It caught her attention because it depicted an image of a green flower on it. Could this place be where the green flower that she was looking for grew? She made her way through the crowd of bustling people until she was just outside the building. There were a number of strange smells wafting out from inside. It felt like her kind of place. She stepped through the doorway and into the building.

    From the outside, the Emerald Flower looked cozy, intimate and cheerful. Stone bricks and thick, stone beams make up most of the building's outer structure. It's hard to see through the curtained windows, but the inviting music from within can be felt outside.

    As you enter the tavern through the well loved wooden door, you're welcomed by the smile of a waitress and a feeling of comfort. The elven bartender is quite busy, but still manages to welcome you with a wink.

    It's as enchanting inside as it is on the outside. Marble pillars support the upper floor and the torches attached to them. The walls are packed with rows of banners from all sorts of tribes, families, and nations. The most prominent ones on display is the banners for the different elven clans, with the banner of the Artisan's clan in the center.

    The tavern itself is packed. Common folk seem to be the primary clientele here, which is often a good sign. Several long tables are occupied by what looks like couples, travelers and anybody else who enjoys great company. The other, smaller tables are also occupied by people who clearly enjoy each other's company, though they seem to be strangers who have met here. Even most of the stools at the bar are occupied, though nobody seems to mind more company.

    You did hear rumors about this tavern--supposedly it's famous for something, but you can't remember what for. Though judging by the music and how many people are dancing, it must be the beautifully clad minstrel in purple, red, and gold who just started playing. You manage to find a seat and prepare for what will undoubtedbly be a great afternoon.

    Skarmory landed near Windripper and handed him a note that mentions of a nearby town and meeting at a tavern called Emerald Flower.
    "Skarmory, do you have any idea on where exactly this is?" asked Windripper to his partner.
    The metal bird shook his head.
    "Oh, well. Might as well go to this town and see what is up at least," sighed Windripper as he took to the air.
    Thankfully, he's been in the town before, in one of his many wanderings and was able to find it with ease. He circled over the city square and scanned the buildings to hopefully see a green flower or something about an Emerald Flower.
    "Skarmory, do you see any green flowers?"
    "Cawk! Cawk! (Yes! Yes!)" replied Skarmory as he flew down toward the east part of town.
    "Skarmory, wait for me!" yelled Windripper.

    Ariel wandered around the tavern, searching for the green flowers. There was a lot going on around her, which proved to be very distracting. She found all of the various people and decorations everywhere to be mesmerizing but she did her best to stay on task. It didn't take long before she had forgotten all about that, however, as she started listening to the music playing. She stopped searching for the supposed green flowers and instead just listened to the unfamiliar sounds of the minstrel's instrument, which seemed almost hypnotic to her.

    "Thank you..." the minstrel acknowledged his applause for the set he had finished--acknowledging the fey and the Taka that had just arrived as he caught a gold coin someone had flipped him as a tip.

    He thought for a moment, then told the crowd "Once upon a time something happened. If it hadn't happened, it wouldn't be told." This was a minstrel's standard beginning if they had a folktale, or any tale of adventure, to tell.

    (I'm waiting on everyone to settle in before we start the quest...the point of the tale is to worldbuild and hint at some lore-specific plot points you may run into on this adventure)

    Amara patiently asked the citizens where one would find an emerald flower, but in the end, she managed to end up at a tavern. As she entered, she noticed a minstrel about to begin telling a story. "I wonder what the story is going to be about?" She was still trying to look for the flower, but the voice that she heard and the music accompanying it just managed to hypnotize her into coming closer. Ajil kept sticking to Amara like glue, careful to not let go of her.

    Skarmory nearly landed on some people as he cried at the tavern.
    "Skarmory, that wasn't necessary, but thank you anyway," said Windripper. "Now let's see what is going on here."
    Windripper peered in and saw that a minstrel was about to tell a story.
    "Come on, Skarmory, we can't miss this," whispered Windripper as he quietly walked in and took one of the empty seats.

    After changing instruments to a lovely silver harp, the minstrel began his tale. "In a place far from this land, there was a land where dragon Pokémon roamed free. This land had a king whose banners had long been black, and whose eyes never knew joy. Every Golden Day he had to send ninety-nine people to the dragons. They were the terror of the land, and showed no mercy to the ninety-nine beings sent to them. Human, elf, dwarf, Taka--all were devoured until there was nothing left."

    Gasps and worried whispers filled the room at this.

    Jamie strolled passed the Tavern, looking inside he saw there were lots of people inside. ''Umm, I believe my presence is need it.'' he grinned at Skitty and Persian. ''Hello, everyone. Glad to see all of you gathered.'' He called out. As his Scythe hang on his back. ''I am here in your presence right now, and do feel free to watch but not touch.'' He grinned as he sat down near the bar

    "Now, the king had three sons, each of them more handsome and clever than the other." the minstrel explained. "The king was very fond of his sons, and guarded them like his greatest secrets. The names of the elder two are not important, but the youngest was named Tristan. There were no other young men left in the land, for the dragons fed on male flesh alone. Once the young men were gone, they had moved on to the older men."

    "This story sounds really interesting," thought Windripper to himself.
    Skarmory looked toward someone else's food and started moving to eat when Windripper quickly got out some berries before the metal bird could disturb anyone.
    "Here, eat this, it is better for you anyway," whispered Windripper as he put the berries down, in front of his partner, and then recontinued listening to the story.

    "One day, the elder princes went to their father and asked him to battle the dragons. But the father would not even listen to his sons' request. As for Tristan, he did not even think to ask his father about such a daunting task." the minstrel continued. "The elder sons persisted in their pleas, until they were allowed to go and fight the dragons."

    Ariel listed to the story being told with mild interest. After a moment she noticed a slight rustling coming from her bag. She reached inside and pulled out one of the two Pokémon that were waiting inside, Banette. The marionette Pokémon didn't like being left alone for very long and often started to act fidgety when not given the attention it wanted, so Ariel held him tightly in her arms.

    Amara was uninterested with the story, to say the least. "The older brothers will share the same fate with their citizens." She found herself a table somewhere far from everyone else, but she was still able to listen to the story quietly. Ajil was floating right beside her friend, feeling weary from their travels. Nonetheless, she stayed wide awake, guarding Amara from anyone who might dare touch her.

    "Now, there were many dragons in the land, but among them three Hydreigons stood tall." the minstrel explains. "One had the normal three heads, another six, and the third nine. These three were so feared, the other dragons dared not challenge them."

    Three others were at the minstrel's table. A black haired mage listened intently to the tale, periodically petting his Pikachu familiar. An orange haired lady knight just listened in awe to her friend's skill, periodically looking out for any rogues or troublemakers. A blonde haired girl in the elegant robes of a spirit dancer listened intently alongside her Braxien companion. They all knew the tale well, and which roles they played when their minstrel friend performed.
