...Some days after the Tower of Tribulations...Numbers were one thing, but progress was another. With new recruits in the fold, Medja could turn her attention to the next step: acquiring the means by which she'd preform her miracle. That meant that sitting still and serving as an administrator from the comfort of the Imperial palace was no longer going to be an option. While she'd have to rely on her Hands even more than before to take care of both her usual duties, their own responsibilities, and much the hunt that would soon be beginning, the Vizier of Stars found herself getting excited at the prospect of venturing out into the world again. Of course, for that to happen she'd need even more assistance.
Her days spent in Annuakat hadn't all been spent simply handling paperwork and acclimating to the duties of Empress she'd soon be responsible for. On the contrary, she'd been researching. Liadain was rife with magical artifacts, her long-dead master being one of the most prominent in leaving powerful relics behind. Such things were well hidden and even more well protected, however. It would be impossible to track down everything she needed to seal the Dragon's Scar in a reasonable timeframe. Thankfully, her research had been fruitful in finding her the means to that end: one of the artifacts of Aramekh, created alongside the very Fists that accompanied her now.
She knew that she'd need to retrieve this particular relic to proceed, that much she knew. The problem, however, was its potential, supposed location...somewhere in the Nahas Ocean, far off the coast of the Trident. The sea was...not exactly Medja's most comfortable environment, and the exact location of the artifact had yet evaded her.
To that end, Medja called those who she thought could help most: Hands, both old and new; associates she'd met in her time in Annuakat; and most importantly, the one person she knew would be the most valuable in this situation...the Vizier of the Moon and Princess of the Mchawi, Noelani. Those who were invited were asked to meet Medja at the docks in Annuakat so that they could be briefed on the nature of what would follow...
