You say, 'Hail, Everna Delestrod'
Everna Delestrod says, 'Hail, traveler. Beware the locals. They have taken to wandering about around here. It can be a bit disturbing when one of those overheated creatures gets too close. One of the many tasks I have taken on is keeping watch here and encouraging the locals to obey their own rules and [stay out] of the mortal space. The guards don't seem to care that their people have taken up residence here.'
You say, 'stay out'
Everna Delestrod says, 'This area is meant to be for us 'mortals' to use, but apparently we haven't been here using it for so long that some of the [fire creatures] have grown curious and wandered in to look around. Some few of them even seem to live here now. I suppose we could try to go through official channels to get rid of them, but for now I just stand here and remind them that they shouldn't be here. That at least keeps them out of this little area.'
You say, 'fire creatures'
Everna Delestrod says, 'They are all here, all four elemental types. It seems that this is where you go if you want to talk with someone of authority among the Efreeti. Everyone here that isn't a guard or official of some type seems to be trying to get into the palace and make some sort of request. Each of them has some overly complex desire and has gone through so many hoops to get here that you or I would be made ill just trying to understand it all. Of course my [needs] are far less complicated.'
You say, 'needs'
Everna Delestrod says, 'Ah, well, simple but perhaps not exactly polite. My employer needs, to put it delicately, elemental bits and pieces. You know, the sort that comes off of creatures. Now, what I have noticed is that the local fire folk don't really like their visitors much. They have guards here and there, posted in towers and such, who are clearly not there to protect the visitors. Nope they are only here to make sure they do not get out of hand. If they fight with each other, guards don't care much. So, you see, an adventurer could readily [take advantage] of this and do as they please, so long as they did not harm the locals.'
You say, 'take advantage'
Everna Delestrod says, 'You have not earned your place here.'
Perhaps you should speak with Star Stealing Sage in Empyr.
