I come to my fellow Sosarians looking for aid of the most urgent nature. Oh! Forgive my rudeness, let me introduce myself first... My name is Pliny the Elder. I am a citizen of Vesper and an earth scientist by profession. My early research into the Solen Colony revealed many interesting facts about their unique, er... society. It was my research that revealed the culture was dominated by a Matriarch. Of course this research was later stolen by... well, I shall not name the individual but he now profits from my efforts. MY RESEARCH! By sending fools on quests for seeds and other such... well... that's in the past... I have something important to tell you so listen closely. Regarding the nature of my quest - I have been getting credible reports of a strange phenomenon bursting from underneath our lands. Reports claim to witness a sudden burst of flame from the earth in seemingly unexpected places. Yet, there must be a pattern to this. It is not only a matter of curiosity but safety as this could be a sign of a pending catastrophe! Alas, as age overcomes my limbs, speed is no longer a virtue I possess. Perhaps all the spelunking in the Solen caves just took the string from my legs... *sighs* I will pass the locations of sightings as I get them and I need a young fellow to go there and report their observations. Observe caution as you proceed, as the information might not be easy to decipher and will probably require some knowledge of the land. It is of utmost significance that you treat the site in the same manner as a forensics expert would - try to not disturb the site in case you missed a clue that someone else might see or hear! Needless to say that there will be handsome rewards in store for anyone who decides to take up this quest. Keep an eye out here for more information.
