 The caravan had been traveling for weeks, the nomads know this desert well, a wise adventurer makes sure to travel with a guide. And what with the storm a few days ago, it was good fortune that they had done so. Around the campfire the night before arriving at the city, the guides impart some of their notorious traveler'​s tales, like the one about a great dragon who roams the desert and makes war upon the city of glass every night. The caravan had been traveling for weeks, the nomads know this desert well, a wise adventurer makes sure to travel with a guide.

-The captivated adventurers see in the distance the curl of fire surrounding the cities towers. the same towers that they had witnessed illuminated by an extraordinary flash of lighting in the terrifying storm of a few days past. [[people:​personages:​fuego]Fuego]] the immolator helped the storyteller embellish his story with a dragon apparition out of the flames of the campfire.+The captivated adventurers see in the distance the curl of fire surrounding the cities towers. the same towers that they had witnessed illuminated by an extraordinary flash of lighting in the terrifying storm of a few days past.

-A jester with a paper red dragon hat cavorted in the bazaar of the City of Glass, the whole city more or less looks like one great bazaar. Our adventurers wandered open mouthed gaping at all the smells and sights sounds and yes even the tastes. Our jester began juggling [[people:​personages:​ichaluby]Ichaluby]], mistaking him for a small furry juggling ball and incorporating him into his act. [[people:​personages:​ichaluby]Ichaluby]] took exception to this and applied his dagger to the jester'​s hand.+A jester with a paper red dragon hat cavorted in the bazaar of the City of Glass, the whole city more or less looks like one great bazaar.

 The city guard, always alert and prepared, immediately arrested all involved with the exception of [[people:​personages:​talltin|Talltin]],​ and [[people:​personages:​eremos|Eremos]]. Luckily [[people:​personages:​cucuolo|Cucuolo]] had the presence of mind to breadcrumb his way through the city with small seedlings that grew at incredible speed. [[people:​personages:​eremos|Eremos]],​ sometimes mistaken for a druid rather than a wizard (on account of his specialization in botany, and being covered in moss), followed the small plants which squeaked “this way” to him.  [[people:​personages:​talltin|Talltin]] being less busy was able to observe his surroundings and noticed that the rock-hewn buildings, and the streets themselves all seemed to be designed to catch every last raindrop. Then, all of a sudden splash a gush of water came shooting out of a window of a 2nd floor flat. The city guard, always alert and prepared, immediately arrested all involved with the exception of [[people:​personages:​talltin|Talltin]],​ and [[people:​personages:​eremos|Eremos]].

-The party, being escorted into the presence of the Vizier, attempted to explain themselves. during which [[people:​personages:​fuego]Fuego]] presented a healing potion to the jester (the only potion in the party), upon mention of the very task that they were sent to the city of glass for, the vizier had the jester taken away and gave his first and last warning to the party, not to disturb the peace.+The party, being escorted into the presence of the Vizier, attempted to explain themselves. during which [[people:​personages:​fuego|Fuego]] presented a healing potion to the jester (the only potion in the party), upon mention of the very task that they were sent to the city of glass for, the vizier had the jester taken away and gave his first and last warning to the party, not to disturb the peace.
  
 Passing by a coffee shop on the way to the glass merchants stall, the party noticed a customer pour out of their mug a pile of chicken noodle soup. And proceeded into the shop where one could find all manner of glass items from klein bottles with multicolored flowers stretching across their surface, to jugs that could have fit  [[people:​personages:​talltin|Talltin]] himself, to tiny little shotglasses that even [[people:​personages:​ichaluby|Ichaluby]] would find troublesome to get a drink from. All of them extravagantly patterned and colored. Passing by a coffee shop on the way to the glass merchants stall, the party noticed a customer pour out of their mug a pile of chicken noodle soup.
