He hurriedly hid the flask that he had received from his elders, the forbidden elixir shall not fall in the enemy’s hands.
Many years later…
Two adventurer stop amidst a desert.
Ellis got off his camel, he had glimpsed something.
What are you doing? – his companion, a young Elf by the name of Calista inquired.
I saw something bright on the dunes – the adventurer said while digging the sand.
He unearthed the forbidden flask and started reading its inscription:
“Eternal life free from bodily illnesses”
After opening the flask’s cap he started drinking the elixir – Are you sure that is safe? ‘Been buried for many years it seems. – Calista said to an apathetic Ellis.
They decided to call their quest off, that oligarch’s treasury was very well hidden, besides they had just found a valuable elixir that was now running in Ellis’ veins. Even the adorned flask itself could be worth something in the city’s market.
Edit: Remembered after looking into a bloomberg article that you use camels,not horses, on the desert. Hahaha, silly mistake.
