It is my gift to you. After speaking, Kongming had placed a hand gently on the crate. A sage smile had escaped his lips as he had probed his comrades with his knowledgeable gaze. No questions. What hidden wonders were contained in that mind? He had parted ways and began his journey south. After seeing him off, the remaining men had stared at the ordinary wooden crate. Whatever was in there wasn’t ordinary. There had been a shifting aura emanating from the center of the box. It had been comforting, yet an arcane feeling had seemed to been flowing about.

If there is trouble, perform the ritual once. Better to simply follow along rather than cause trouble. That was 30 days ago.
